Where to eat in Key West

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

I have been trying to get this post together for weeks but #life. I have been to Key West a handful of times and now that we have a family home there, I'm sure there will be countless trips to come.  There are SO many restaurants and tons I haven't been to but I have rounded up my favorites. Whenever I have a trip planned, I love to search blogs for restaurant recommendations so hopefully this will be helpful if you're planning to visit Key West in the future!


Blue Heaven
A Key West landmark and an absolute must for breakfast. Fun fact: Kenny Chesney is a regular at this restaurant! It is a tiny little place where you sit under the palm trees and chickens walk around your feet. The atmosphere is what makes this restaurant unforgettable. The best key lime pie on the island!

A quaint restaurant located in a traditional, Key West house. The lunch menu looked delicious but I've only eaten here for breakfast. The french toast was soo yummy!

Two Friends Restaurant
Delicious, huge portions. Nothing fancy. Just good, old fashioned breakfast food.


Located right on Duval Street, this is the perfect restaurant to go to for people watching and a good sandwich. Definitely not fancy but delicious fish sandwiches, club sandwiches, salads, etc.

Island Dogs
Located right across the street from Two Friends Restaurant. Grab a table on the front porch and enjoy a bloody mary and nachos. They have live music late afternoon/nights which is a fun touch.


Nine One Five
The best dinner I've ever had in Key West. Located at 915 Duval Street, it is the cutest house with a swanky bar and fancy cocktails. If the weather is good you can enjoy your dinner on the porch overlooking Duval Street. The drinks are amazing and the food is top notch. We had roasted brussel sprouts for appetizer and they were out of this world. Then I had spinach lobster ravioli for my meal and I am still dreaming about it.

Conch Republic
Located at the marina. There are no walls so you are "inside" but feel like you're outside. A place to take kids because there is a huge fish tank, you can look at all the boats, and it has a loud atmosphere. Nothing fancy about this restaurant but good fried shrimp, sandwiches, etc.

Roof Top Cafe
A fancier restaurant with yummy food. Delicious shrimp and grits, pastas, and fresh seafood dishes. Sit outside under the trees if the weather is good!

Have you ever been to Key West? What yummy restaurants am I missing?!


  1. all of this sounds so yummy!! I can't wait until you, B and I plan a girls trip :)

  2. How fun that y’all have a home there now. Yum, those places look delicious. I love key lime so I’ll definitely add this to my list of places to visit in the future.

  3. OMG, this all looks and sounds delicious! Those Brussels sprouts, ahh! I'm with Emily, can't wait for a girls' trip! ;)

  4. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't been to the majority of these places despite going to Key West as much as I have! I LOVE Blue Heaven for breakfast but I'm one of the weirdos that doesn't think their Key Lime pie is that great. Definitely checking out the rest of these the next time I'm down there! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. Yes to all these places, they all look fabulous.

  6. seriously what a great list! i love the laid back vibe of most of the restaurants there. and i'm with pamela - i'm ashamed i haven't been to most of these either! i'll have to add them to my list!
