Where to eat in the keys and fort lauderdale

I am planning a trip to Marathon Key in May and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for places to eat. We will be taking a day trip to Key West as well and will need to eat somewhere there too. Also spending a night in Fort Lauderdale if anyone has any suggestions for there too!

  1. We were just in Marathon a couple of weeks ago. Our best meal there was at Barracuda Grill. We also really enjoyed Butterfly Cafe at Tranquility Bay Resort. Beautiful setting sitting outside on the porch. Enjoyed the bar-b-que at Porky's and they have live entertainment at night. We had a great lunch at Lazy Day's. It was also recommended by a local for dinner. / We also ate lunch at Island Fisheries and the Tiki Bar at Tranqulity Bay. Both beautiful settings--food just okay. The stone crab from Key Fisheries is delicious. They supply the stone crab to Joe's.

    We had a delicious dinner at Hot Tin Roof in Key West. It is on the second floor overlooking the gulf and the sunset. Make a reservation to sit outside.
