Captain Ron's Keys Caribbean Retreat
Big Pine Key, Florida
Additional Location Information
Just five short streets (4 canals) away is the No Name Pub. World famous and the best Pizza around and patrons from around the world have decorated the walls and ceilings with “personalized” dollar bills. The Pub will provide crayons and a stapler so you can hang your bills.
On Big Pine Key; Coco’s cantina, at the Winn Dixie center, basically Cuban food, and the Big Pine coffee shop next to the Post Office.
On Little Torch Key, at MM 28.5 is Parrotdise Waterfront Bar and Grille. Tropically decorated, clean, a good menu and a full bar. You have a view of pine channel thru the large windows and once a month the full moon rise over the Atlantic is spectacular.
On Cudjo Key, at MM 22.5 is the Square Grouper. This is a “must visit” restaurant in the Lower Keys. They serve excellent sea food. Beer and wine only at the bar and if you don’t like waiting, get there early.
Aside from art and history, Key West of course has many restaurants ranging from decent to excellent. On the excellent end is the A & B lobster house. It is on the water at the harbor walk with a view of the fishing boats for hire and many yachts. On Duval Street, Antonia’s and La Trattoria are excellent Italian restaurants.
There are (several) Local’s restaurants that are off the beaten path and serve an excellent menu at reasonable prices. Two of these are Camille’s serving what I would call an “American menu.
The feature I like is they serve breakfast until 3:00 PM.
Almost next door is Abbondanza. Is a small, cozy, generally quiet place with a good menu at reasonable prices? The menu is Italian and I have never been able to finish a four meatball spaghetti dish. These are just a few of the many fine restaurants. If you mention it when you arrive, I can recommend several more dining spots.
