Road Trip Around Florida

We are starting in Pensacola the end of January and making our way to Key West. Our plan is to drive down the west coast staying a few days in the Everglades but other than that, we have no definite plans. After Key West, we will head back to Atlanta. Are there any particular places we should stop for a scenic restaurant and good food? Any seafood restaurant or shack would also be high on our list. We would also be interested in any route frequented by foodies. It is,perhaps, too general a request but any suggestions would be appreciated.

      also some great shrimp in cedar key. i had some great ones at annie's about ten years ago, hope it is still there.

    2. Deal's Oyster House in Perry. A little off the beaten path in such a good way.

        Deal's is really good. Great fresh fried seafood and cheese grits.

      2. the Cypress Inn just north of Cross Citty on US 19 has a pretty good breakfast. Order off the menu or have the buffet. Nothing fancy, but nice.

        1. Central west coast, the Village of Cortez is an experience, with a lunch on the dock at Star Fish and a visit to A.P. Bell next door.

          1. This is exactly what we are looking for. Thanks
