Lunch stop between Fort Lauderdale and Key West?

Hi, we're looking for somewhere to stop for lunch on the way to Key West. Preferably something very casual, seafood, on the beach where we can enjoy a drink etc. Any suggestions?

  1. You might want to try Alabama Jacks on Card Sound Road. Unless that's too far up the Keys for you. It's right by the Card Sound Bridge. Definitely laid back and casual......and good food.

    1. Just a reminder there is little beach in the Keys.
      I've been a fan of Fish Tales Market and Eatery in Marathon. Been a couple of years since I've been there.
      Fish of the day is usually Yellow Tail Snapper.

      1. We stopped at Porkys, a BBQ restaurant in marathon. Was great, casual and there is plenty of seafood to be eaten once you get to key west.

        1. We stop at Moraday Bay in Islamorada when we do the Ft. Lauderdale to Key West drive. Sometimes they have live music.
