Restaurants in Islamorada [Florida]

Headed to Islamorada for a week. Need some ideas on where the great
Restaurants are.

Not Islamorada but we enjoyed some meals in Key Largo just up the road in 2015:-

Fish House and Pilot House for dinners. The former was the better food experience (good seafood). The latter had live music and was more fun but you can find that food in so many average quality places in America. Doc’s Diner was a good breakfast experience. And diner experience, for lunch , was at Mrs Mac’s Kitchen - we liked the idea that many menu items just say it’s “fish” and they use whatever is fresh that day - in our case it was dolphin and the dolphin Reuben was truly excellent. A bit of a rough and ready place, popular with bikers (and, now, middle aged Britons)

My friend is a Native and long time restaurant employee. I asked her when you first asked and promptly forgot about it. Let me re-ask her. :slight_smile:

Near Islamorada on Marathon Key is Keys Fisheries. They supply nearly all the Stone Crab claws in Florida. If you go to their outside , upstairs bar, they have medium Stone Crab claws for cheap ($1 each when I was there, my brother, who lives in Miami tells me they are now $1.50 each, still a great deal). They also had food specials of tuna tartare and shrimp cocktail.
