If you could only pick one place...

only ONE! with a great view.. outdoor seating and good food.. where would be the one place that you would stop on teh drive from miami to key west..

I have read all the posts that list several ideas.. i am interested in what you would pick if you could only pick ONE spot..

My friend who used to live in the keys told me cabana breezes..but I don't see much about it here.

Where would you choose??

First off, why limit yourself to one spot? There are a ton of great places. Take time to smell the Ocean along way.

That being said - If you're going into Key Colony Beach, Stop when you get to Sparky's. The food FAR exceeds anything Cabana Breezes puts on plates.

Lazy Days in Islamorada has a nice view and good food.

Depending upon the time of day for the one stop.

Mid day - probably try Lazy Days in Islamorada. Good food, great view of the Ocean.

Sunset time - in Key Largo, Caribbean Club, In Islamorada Lor-E-Lei, simply because they have entertainment. In Marathon either The Island or Keys Fisheries.

My all time favorites though is Sparky's. The food is GREAT, its on the water.

Is this cheating? I just qualified based on location and time.
