Just returned with a couple recommendations

If you love "REAL" frozen custard (not soft-serve),,, run, don't walk to the Courthouse Deli. They are serving up the real stuff. Also, we enjoyed jet skiing with Island Safari and Angel Junior as our guide. We rode out to small keys, swam and got an education about the area.

Raw clams at Half Shell - the sweetest ever

Steamed clams at DJs - YUM

Hogfish Grill has amazing rice beans as the side to a GREAT fish taco

Korean BBQ at Garbos - addicting

Boathouse - always on point

Santiago Bodega - fantastic

Did I mention the frozen custard at the Courthouse Deli? :)

We ate a lot more, but those are the highlights!

couldn't agree more on DJ's steamed clams and on the Korean BBQ at Garbo's . Sad that garbo's lost a lot of their shade foliage during Irma .. hoping it will grow back fast .

Have not done the Courthouse Deli yet. But, based on your other likes, I think I need to add it to my short list for next year.

Thanks, I think. My short list is already too long! Great problem to have.

We couldn't fit in El Siboney, and after we returned I ran into an annual KW visitor and he RAVED about their paella and I'm so sad we didn't fit it into our week-long eating orgy. Well, there will certainly be a next time!!

El Siboney is excellent and extremely affordable - DH is Cuban and it’s one of his favorites when we’re here. We like going on rainy days since we can drive and park right out front, and can go very casual.

El Siboney opened another restaurant on Stock Island for those with transportation. More space, fewer crowds and same food.
