      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.

        Blue Heaven
        Half Shell Raw Bar
        Pier at the Ocean Key House
        7 Fish
        Alonzo's Oyster Bar
        Pepe's
        Harpoon Harry's
        Turtle Kraals
        Hog Fish (on Stock Island, next to key west)

    2. Schooner Wharf is one of my favorite places

      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.
