Driving from Miami to Key West Help

Looking for places to stop for great snacks or lunch. Been all over the world, but never been to Florida. So I'm not even sure what I should be looking for. Any thoughts?

        1. We like Lazy days in Islamorada.

          In Key West, we like to go to Alonso's for their happy hour.

          Alonzo’s Oyster Bar
          on the water – great happy hour half price appetizers and discounted drinks

            I used to hang out in a Jimmy Buffett newsgroup and some guy there had a great guide, it was basically Miami to KW mile by mile, every cool little dive etc. I'll see if I can dig that up.

            For some great scenery and instant laid-back Florida Keys "wow this is cool we are really in The Keys" feel, check out Snappers near Mile Marker 94 (ocean side) just south of Key Largo in Tavernier. It's in a secluded cove looking out to the ocean, outdoor dining, tiki bar, etc.

            I've also heard good things about Lazy Days.

          2. I like The Fish House in Key Largo for great, fresh local fish.
