This restaurant is fine dining but not stuffy. The menu offers steak AND seafood. So, it’s pleasing to a variety of tastes. The Commodore is on the second floor with large windows overlooking the Historic Seaport. If the weather is pleasant, they open the windows and let in the sea breeze.

HOT TIN ROOF
FINE DINING RESTAURANT
Zero Duval Street at Ocean Key Resort
Key West, Florida

An intimate fine dining restaurant located overlooking the Key West Harbor with incredible sunset views. You may choose to dine outdoors on the verandah or indoors in the “tropically elegant” dining room. Gary and I enjoyed the privacy of a cozy booth.

A&B LOBSTER HOUSE
FINE DINING RESTAURANT
700 Front Street
Key West, Florida

Overlooking the historic seaport. They offer indoor and outdoor seating. The downstairs casual restaurant, Alonzo’s, has a good happy hour.

 

CONCH REPUBLIC SEAFOOD COMPANY
CASUAL. GREAT HAPPY HOUR
631 Greene St
Key West, Florida

Located overlooking the historic seaport, this open air waterfront restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy Key West shrimp with a cold beer while listening to live music and watching the boats come and go. Locals love the Friday happy hour. They don’t take general reservations but do offer reserved areas with set menus for wedding receptions. Off-site catering is also available.

THIRSTY MERMAID RESTAURANT KEY WEST
MID-RANGE BISTRO
521 Fleming ST.
Key West, Florida

Hip, bistro style restaurant with lots of seafood and great burgers. The atmosphere is lively but it can be a bit noisy and difficult to hear your dining companions. So, I don’t recommend it for a romantic wedding dinner. We also like their sister restaurant Little Pearl.

BLUE HEAVEN IN BAHAMA VILLAGE
CASUAL/FUNKY
729 Thomas Street
Key West, Florida

Jimmy Buffett wrote a song about this place and, the prices went up but it’s still the funkiest place to eat in Key West. Be prepared to eat gourmet food outside with a dirt floor beneath your feet and roosters running (or sometimes flying!) by. Go for breakfast. If you’re lucky, lobster benedict will be the on the menu.

B.O.’s FISHWAGON ON CAROLINE STREET
SUPER CASUAL/FUNKY
801 Caroline Street, Key West, Florida

Okay, so this could be the 2nd funkiest place to eat in Key West. Basically, this is a cement slab with a make-shift tin roof. Great conch fritters, fish sandwiches and the BEST french fries (hand-made). Boog Powell once cooked me barbeque here! Go on Friday for happy hour. There is live music (usually New Orleans style jazz) and cold beer.
