Duval Street/Key West

Hi all - Going to Key West and hotel is near Duval Street. Rather then eat at the hotel every day (too expensive), thought you might have some suggestions on good eats for breakfast/lunch/dinner. I know Duval Street can be a bit rowdy so was hoping for some semi-quiet dining options.

Thanks for any help.

  1. I would highly recommend Seven Fish for Dinner, It's small but the food was fantastic.

    Blond Girrafe for some Key Lime Pie

    Willie T's is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it's not expensive however I wouldn't consider it a foodie spot, just decent american fare at decent prices.

    1. off the top of my head,

      Blue Heaven
      B.O.'s Fishwagon
      Schooner Wharf- our favorite fish tacos
      El Siboney
      5 Brothers
      Sandy's Cafe- ok so it's a laundramat, they have good Cubans
      Banana Cafe

      and by all means, stay off Duval.

      1. re: RC51Mike

        I definitely second El Siboney's and Sandy's Cafe. Sandy's for the cubans and the cafe con leche....El Siboney for almost everything on the menu at great prices (especially for Key West). I would avoid almost any restaurant on Duval St. Don't get me wrong, I like hanging out in Key West (prefer the Lower Keys for fishing and relaxing), but most restaurants on Duval are just tourist traps anymore.

      2. Thank you all for your responses!
