Where's the best place to go for hogfish?

Last year my husband and I tried the hogfish at Cafe Solé which was very good. Are there any other places to go for great hogfish? We're headed down in April and am already trying to think of places to eat. We won't have a car, so any place that's in walking distance from the Gardens Hotel would be preferable.

Thank you!

You can try The HogFish restuarant on Stock Island. I'm sure you can get a taxi to and from. Not far at all.

Many restaurants will have specials using hogfish if its available. Hogfish grill on stock island doesn't necessarily make it any better than anywhere else but stock island is a different experience than key west and the restaurant can be fun and the fish is fresh.

My first dinner of hogfish was as one of the specials at the Banana Cafe in the 1200 block of Duval. They are posted outside the restaurant so take a look as you go by.

The last time I had Hogfish was at A&B Lobster. I think it was one of the specials for the night. The HogFish on Stock Island doesn't always have it, so be sure to call if you are going to make a special trip. It's worth hunting for!!

hogfish isn't always available, so call and maybe you'll have to go early, but if Hogfish B&G has it that's a great excuse to take the ride over there:

Thanks all! So it sounds like check the specials as we walk around. I also had it once at Alonso's which was very good. Again, we liked the hogfish at Cafe Solé, but it was very $$$$ for the portion you got.

I'm going to second SDT and Blackfin Bistro. It has become one of our favorites. Hogfish B&G is good as well, albeit a completely different experience. Call ahead if you are set on Hogfish, but their other food is very good ad fresh as well.
