Hogfish Bar & Grill on stock island, Michaels in town and Latitudes on sunset won't be disappointed at any of those spots. Michaels and Latitudes are more upscale. Also Blue Heaven in the Bohemian village.

I agree about Hogfish Bar and Grill on Stock Island. Fun, reasonable and good food. Of course Louies Backyard is consistently excellent but it costs a bit but worth it. Guy Fierro from the Food Channel was shooting in KW a few weeks ago. The first place he went to was DJ's Clam Shack on Duval St. Limited menu but great clam strips, conch and lobster rolls. We tried DJ's a few days after the shooting and we enjoyed it and went back the next week.

If you are looking for Cuban food you have to go to El Siboney in Key West. Best Cuban food I have ever had. It is in a neighborhood a few minutes from the main tourist areas. Well worth the effort.

I can also recommend hog fish bar and grill. Another really good place is Rusty Anchor on stock island. Really good food! The pan fried yellowtail with a loaded baked potato and cole slaw is awesome. The other good thing about this place is they aren't on island time

I've been meaning to ask someone: I noticed [Key West] is a fishing village. Is there a Long John Silver's on the island?

Blue Heaven years ago... it's a bit 'touristy' now. Still worth the bike ride.

The Butterfly Museum is really cool.. worth the $10 or so to walk thru.

If the guy is still doing 'Bike Tour of KW" (ask at bike rental places) that was one of the very best 'tours'.

The KW Graveyard ... "I told you I was sick".

State Park Beach - $4 a car load I think. Quiet. HUGE snook swim around the rocks off the beach.

Hogs Breath. Irish Kevin's for lots of beer and laughs.

Pepe's has a great breakfast. Wanted to make it back for lunch or dinner but didn't have time.

Flaming Buoy is really good. More high end but great atmosphere and phenomenal food.

Turtle krawls and the raw bar down by the waterfront is where the locals go for great food at a decent price.
