Top Restaurants in Key Largo

Ballyhoos

Built in the 1930s, this historic seafood grill may not have the scenic views common to other area restaurants, but they make up for it in the tasty cuisine. The stone crab and prime rib specials are a hot item, and the staff is very attentive. Get there early to avoid a wait - it gets very crowded for dinner.

Harriet’s Restaurant

For a breakfast that will really get the morning started right, head to Harriette's. This restaurant is another town staple, serving up fluffy homemade biscuits, steak and eggs, pancakes, and sausage - the comfort food menu continues into lunch, with dishes like beef brisket and meatloaf.

Mrs. Mac’s Kitchen

The local favorite serves up down-home Florida cooking like crab cakes, home fries, chili, fish 'n' chips, and their famous milkshake-like Key Lime Freeze (not to mention the pie that shares its name, reputed as one of the best in the Keys). The eatery's fun, casual atmosphere (there are colorful license plates mounted on the walls), affordable prices, and friendly service make it an ideal spot for families. It's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Fish House Encore

The original Fish House was such a hit that a second was opened next door, only a bit more upscale then its neighbor. In addition to traditional fresh-fish favorites, Encore also offers a full sushi bar, and selection of martinis and margaritas. There are three dining areas to choose from, including the main dining room, the piano bar, and the outdoor patio. For dessert, take a break from Key Lime Pie and try their signature White Chocolate Baby Grand Piano filled with chocolate mousse.
