Hello All! Heading to The Keys in early November. Looking for a dinner rec for my boyfriend's birthday. It's going to be a Friday night. He loves good fried seafood, something casual, under $15pp. I was looking into The Shrimp Shack on Stock Island but it looks like this place may have closed? Any other recs for something similiar would be great! Any of the Lower Keys or Key West we are open to. Good fried fish, fried lobster, raw oysters, thanks so much! FYI, I have eaten at BO's, this is a good choice however I know once they run out of fresh fish they close for the evening so I wanted a couple other places to choose from. Thanks!

    I also love the Half Shell Raw Bar, but it might be be a little more than your price point.

      BO's was going to be my first suggestion... have you tried Schooner Wharf Bar? I think it would fall around this price and has good fish sandwiches. Also possibly Turtle Kraals? I had a tasty grouper sandwich there on a recent trip, and if you're there early enough, the Tower Bar is an awesome place to catch the sunset.
