Key West

Heading to Key West for 3 full days and 4 Nights. First time going! What are the best places to go? Also, looking for a great sushi place? Any help?

  1. A must try is Garbo's grill for fish or shrimp tacos/ burritos. It's a food cart with a table set up, but the food is delicious.

    For fish and seafood dishes My two picks are:
    Pisces and Black Fin Bistro.

    I've never had sushi there, maybe someone else can help you on that one.

    1. For drinks I'd recommend The Porch - it's a wine and craft beer bar right on the corner of Duval/Caroline.It's a proper bar not a ye-haw party bar with drinks in plastic cups.An ideal spot to recharge your batteries after the mayhem of Duval.

      Food - Nine One Five at 915 Duval. Excellent food and sufficiently far enough away from the tourist mob to enjoy a decent meal.

      Happy Hour - Alonzo's Oyster Bar. Good drinks and appetizers half-price here and at another nearby restaurant owned by the same people.Recommended.

      1. There are some very good threads on here you might want to check out. With the exception of possibly sushi. We liked Origami which was on Virginia and Duvall. Very fresh really good yellow tail. Have a great time.

        1. Thanks for the replies! We had a great time! Must say Garbo's fish and shrimp taco's were AMAZING! That place is a must when down there. Also had breakfast at Pepe's food was great! You gotta chat up the boat guy next door while there. Had an early dinner at El Siboney. It had good food. Also went to Kelly's Carribean. The food was mediocre at best. Kermit's key lime pie was good. But hands down the food highlight was Garbo's.
