      Schooner Wharf is one of my favorite places
      http://www.schoonerwharf.com/

      I think moms and boys would both enjoy lunch there for michael mccloud who plays 12-5 Wed-Monday. (so not on Tuesday). Outside seating, over sand, right along the water with good music. Can't be beat on a good sunny day.

      The food is decent (never had a bad meal, but burgers-wraps-fish-bar food type stuff ... nothing too special) and it IS a bar (so if you are teetotalers, I'd say to avoid it; but, otherwise there are rarely inappropriate drunks there ... just people enjoying a cold drink in the sun). but it IS totally key west and an afternoon there is a must do every time we go (a couple of times a year).

      Blue Heaven is cool with the chickens running around. We like Willie T's.

        what does everyone like? Are you on any kind of budget? Have you been to KW before? If so, where did you eat that time?

          They are humble kids, good eaters, and casual tourists who have never been to the Keys. I live in Miami and am the proxy. Bo's Fish Wagon type of places seem to be what they would like. Real earthy Key West places.
