Hit up a bunch of places -- happy hours, high end and local places.

Pepe's - Went here for breakfast. It was good, but not great. Special of crab and spinach omelet and french toast with mango sauce. Everything is ala carte. Blue Heaven breakfast is much better.

Blue Heaven - There BLT Eggs Benedict is excellent, Bacon, Lobster and Tomato on Eggs Benedit. Be prepared to wait for a table. They take no reservations. We came early and had a 30 minute wait. Later arrivles were told over an hour.

Also had dinner here -- very good. The caprese salad was one of the best I've ever had. Tomatos had great flavor. Buffalo steak done well. Scallops were the best we had all week.

Better Than Sex - Small Dessert Place. This was the highlight of the trip. Excellent desserts, but the cabernet wine glasses dipped in dark chocolate were fabulous.

Hogfish Bar and Grill - On Stock Island and you will probably need a GPS to find. Really a locals place. Great hogfish sandwich and the best/freshest shrimp we had. Great bargain find.

Bagatelle - Stopped in for dinner just because it looked nice. Ended up being one of the best meals we had. Lobster mac and cheese was probably the best I've had. Ceasar salad with excellent homemade dressing. Small but very good wine list.

Alonzos's - Half price happy hour can't be beat. Clams casino, steamped shrimp, anything off the appetizer side of the menu. All drinks, wine and beer half price.

Dante's - Great happy hours. Half price on all drinks, beer and wine. Nachos were fabulous and enough for about 4 people. Enjoy a swim while you have your drinks.

BO's Fish Wagon - Good fish sandwiches and hamburgers. Hand cut fries. Looks like a dive but food is very good. Beer and wine only.

Guy Harvey's - Best Key Lime Martini I ever had. Highly recommend.

Louie's Backyard - Go for the tapas upstairs. Food is pricey, must make a reservation. Just a nice place to sit and enjoy the view.

Sunset Pier - Only disappointment. Ordered a lobster BLT sandwich. Bread was hard as a rock and 3 tiny pieces of lobster on an $18 sandwich. French fries were frozen shoestring fries. Would not recommend.

Croissants de France - Good Beignets and several different kinds.

Willie T's - Good choice for a sandwich or burger only. Nice laid back atmosphere. Go when they have 2 for 1 mojitos - about 50 different kinds.
