Florida Keys, Great Local Joints
We'll be chartering a boat the week after Christmas cruising the lower Keys and need some local knowledge for not to miss local joints . Nothin fancy, just good food. The closer to the water the better. Would love to find places that serve fresh seafood, particularly shrimp.

Breakfast on Duval
Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Diner type atmosphere, but food and service are good. On Simonton Street
If you are heading to Key West, I second the vote for El Siboney. My party ordered Vaca Frita (personal favorite), Siboney Steak, Ropa Vieja, Grilled MahiMahi, wonderful sangria, complimentary generously butter slathered Cuban bread. Not on the water but furiously packed. Catherine and Margaret Streets.
The French influenced Banana Cafe has amazing crepes, both sweet and savory. Make sure to save room for a Nutella crepe at the end of the meal! On the touristy road of Duval, but so yummy. Duval and Catherine Streets.
