The Galley Grill

Lots of breakfast selections, cooked to order, daily specials, even gluten free menu choices. Server was extremely pleasant, was worth the wait for a table. The food was hot, eggs cooked to perfection, bacon nice and crispy.......coffee just the right drinking temp, wonderful way to start my day!

The Dining Room at Little Palm Island

Reviewed By DalTexTraveler - Dallas, Tx

From the wooden tender ride to the island to the wonderful service and the delightful company of key deer while dining on the beach, simply an experience not to be missed. The menu and wines by the glass were somewhat limited, but apparently change almost daily. I hear their brunch is fabulous and would definitely go back if I were in the area. Very romantic to be on the beach, with the deer and the setting sun. A great experience for couples.

A Slice of Paradise

Reviewed By Elythiel - Bradenton, Florida

Slice of Paradise is local and provides good food and good service. Prices are OK but are made up for by the local convenience.

Kiki's Sandbar

Tropical Beach front restaurant & bar featuring local seafood and fresh Island cuisine.

Reviewed By kellynne18 - Nacogdoches, Texas

We stayed at Parmers Resort, just a bit down the road from Kikis. We ended up coming here twice because it was so easy and we loved it! Our daughter played in the sand all evening and threw frisbees with the dogs! Many of the regulars and employees bring their dogs and that is a fun touch. The table next to us complained about that, but we thought it was cool! There is a dock that we walked out on for good views and pictures!
The food was good - the drinks were tropical and yummy! But the desserts were amazing!
We will definitely go back again next time we are in the keys!

Tonio's Seafood Shack & Tiki Bar

Reviewed By Ben A - Arlington, Virginia

I went with a friend to this place on a recent Saturday, and had a terrific time. My friend an I sat outside, in the tiki-covered bar area. The service was prompt, friendly, and very attentive.

The outside area had a large bar and several tables, along with some TV's which were tuned to the some of the Saturday afternoon sporting events. This area is next to a canal, and it was a nice place to have a mid-afternoon lunch. While we were eating, I noticed a man who was setting up to play his guitar. We left before he began.

We ordered the conch fritters, and they were among the best I have ever had in the Keys. Light and fluffy with a nice crunchy outside.

My friend had their yellowtail sandwich, and I had the littleneck clams in a garlic broth. The clams and the broth were delicious!!

Even though Tonio's has a full bar, my friend and I had cold beer.

There is also an inside eating area which appears to have recently been redone. The re-do is very nice and the area looks quite comfortable.

If you're looking for a non-pretentious place with good food, good atmosphere, and a real Keys-y sort of vibe, then I would recommend Tonio's without hesitation.
