Long Weekend in Key West {Where to Eat}

Oh my goodness, has it really been a week since I promised this post? No worries, it’s worth the wait!

If you love seafood, you’ll enjoy dining in Key West immensely! I’m going to break down our favorites, many of which we ate at multiple times over our long weekend!

Don’t blink, or you’ll miss The Blind Pig Food Truck on Rum Row.

Freshly cooked to order, these are easily my favorite tacos ever! The DH is partial to the shrimp tacos, but the chicken tacos were my favorite!

It’s no surprise that the Island Dogs Bar on Front Street is rated one of the best bars in Key West. It is super chill and the food is outstanding!

We ate our fair share of conch fritters, but the ones here were the best on the island! The mango habanero wings and peel and eat shrimp were finger-lickin’ good. And the mango smoothie was very refreshing for those who go cycling in 90+ temps. 😆 Collectively, this was our favorite dining experience of the entire visit!

As a Bahama Mama, this chick loves conch salad. But The Bahamas is one of the few places that serves conch this way. Last Christmas in Turks, I fell in love with conch ceviche, which is similar enough. So when I learned The Conch Shack on Duval Street offered conch ceviche, it was game on!

The Keys’ version on conch ceviche is very different from Turks. I suppose I was expecting it to be the same, so was a little surprised when it wasn’t. Initially I wasn’t sure I liked it, but the taste grew on me over the visit.

If you go, The Conch Shack accepts cash only. Also, there are maybe 4 barstools off to the side, so plan to eat on the go.

For a proper sit down meal, be sure to check out Two Friends Patio Restaurant on Front Street. The food is super delish, and y’all, parking is free during your visit!

We enjoyed oysters, peel and eat shrimp, conch fritters, and fried shrimp. And I highly recommend the Moscow Mule. Also refreshing on a hot day. But expect some feathered friends at your feet during your meal. 🙂

This wraps up my Key West Series. It was such a fun getaway! Many thanks to Grammy for holding down the fort at home.

I imagine uncertainty about international travel will continue to be a factor for a while, thereby keeping Key West (and the Florida Keys in general) in high demand. If this is on your radar, let’s chat asap!
