Solo dining Key West

LulusMom Dec 25, 2012 10:23 AM

I'll be taking a special solo trip to Key West for 3 nights. I am looking for the best food I can find for someone eating on her own (bar seating, or places that don't feel stuffy or overly quiet but also not like Mardi Gras). I don't eat red meat which I'm guessing won't be a problem, but figure I should point out just in case. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.

    It has been a few years but when I did art shows in Key West we always went to Blue Heaven for dinner. A quick search on review sites looks like the quality is still the same.

    Funky atmosphere with a variety of indoor and outdoor (recommend) seating options. Food was always excellent with too many interesting choices to easily decide. Wandering chickens and great people watching for entertainment!

        Kinda like a bad penny...

        I'm in Florida a few times per year so I mainly lurk to keep up to date!

        I think you'd enjoy the place provided the food is still at the same level.

      Garbo's Grill - is a food stand with delicious fish tacos, they also have shrimp burritos and other options but my favorite is their fish tacos.

      La Creperie - Crepes, small little family owned place it has a little bar you can sit at and watch your crepes being made

      Paseo Restaurant - Caribbean, Small counter service place. The grilled corn is amazing, inside and outside seating.

      Black Fin Bistro - Seafood, American, has a bar you can sit up at. I enjoyed red snapper and Key West Pink Shrimp here

      Find a place that does an oyster happy hour.
