Bold Eats: Dining & Drinking in the Florida Keys

Thinking of visiting the Florida Keys anytime soon? If our name hasn’t already given it away, we like to spend our time in the water and the Keys hosts some of our all-time favorite spots for relaxing, fishing, and dining. From Key Largo all the way to Key West, we’re about to take you on a tour of the Keys’ best places for incredible seafood and refreshing drinks!

Key Largo Conch House

We’re kicking off our foodie Florida trip in Key Largo at a place that does it all: The Key Largo Conch House. If this is the first stop on your trip through the Keys, then we suggest getting yourself a freshly brewed cup of coffee and the Cracked Conch Benedict topped with their fresh lobster and conch ceviche. Yep, lobster AND ceviche!


Already longing for the perfect spot for an afternoon cocktail? Head to Islamorada. This Cabana Bar features delectable drinks and a waterfront view to die for. Our recommendation? Get the Bushwacker. Chocolate + Kahlua + a half-dozen types of liquor + that Islamorada view = heaven.

Made 2 Order

Let’s say you skipped breakfast on your drive across the Keys. No biggie, but now you’re driving across Islamorada and your stomach is rumbling something fierce. Pump on the brakes and stop by Made 2 Order, one of our favorite spots 4 breakfast at the Keys. This cute spot with nice views makes French Toast with an outrageously delicious tropical twist that cannot be missed (four words: croissants and orange butter). Holy yum!

Morada Bay Beach Cafe

Located at the heart of Islamorada, the Morada Bay Beach Cafe is one of our go-to spots for toasting margaritas and soaking in the sunset. Don’t believe us? Check out the post above from the leader of the Bold Man team, Peter Gonzalez, and see for yourself. Happy hour vibes never felt this good.

Lazy Days

All we’re gonna say about this award-winning Islamorada Oceanfront Restaurant is: you could be eating coconut-fried hogfish with Key Lime bar blanc sauce ON the beach right now, so why aren’t you? Yeah, that’s what we thought.

Bob’s Bunz

Looking for something sweet? Check out these freshly baked desserts in Islamorada. You read that right, fresh baked! Bob’s Bunz makes out-of-this-world cinnamon buns and sticky buns (they’re so delicious, you can even forgive them for spelling their name with a Z at the end). 😂

Chef Michael’s

Looking for that top-notch date night experience? Come by Chef Michael’s and try some of their legendary prime rib and fresh fish. Trust us, it’s worth making the reservations in advance.

No Name Pub

Known as “A Nice Place… If You Can Find It,” the No Name Pub is a one-of-a-kind hideaway in Big Pine Key serving up some delicious Royal Pub Pizza (pizza in the Keys? Yes, really!) and their unforgettable Silver Dollar Fries are drool worthy! (please excuse us as we stop to wipe the drool off our screens).

Key Largo Fish House

For our second to last stop on the trip, we had to take all the way back to Key Largo for a trip to one of the top spots for fresh fish at the Keys. If we may be so bold, we’d even say this place has the best lobster bisque in all of the Florida Keys. Yep, you heard us right!

So we’ve gone all the way across the Keys! We had a bit more than our three daily meals, (We regret nothing!) and drank refreshing cocktails amidst some of the most beautiful waterfront views. But, it’s the Keys! You gotta try it all!


Now there’s only one way to end a trip like this… and it’s at Kermit’s Key Lime Shop. Treat yourself to a dark chocolate frozen Key Lime pie on a stick. When you travel (and eat) as bold as we do, you deserve it! Treat yo self!
