During your visit to the Keys you definitely want to try as much of the local seafood as possible. The Key Largo Conch House, just down the highway from Riptide RV Resort & Marina, is on everyone’s list and for good reason. The amazing food options are so incredible this restaurant has been featured on the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food. Also, the Conch House Omelet was featured in a novel (“Don’t Kill the Messenger”). How do you top that? Well, Emeril LaGasse recently visited and filmed an episode of the Cooking Channel show Emeril’s Florida that aired in March. Key Largo Conch House sure sounds like it’s the place for a good seafood experience in the area.
Breakfast is a treat whether you opt for the Tropical Crab Cake Benedict, a Spicy Cajun Omelet, the Texas Breakfast Burrito or something more traditional such as french toast or crepes. Lunch choices vary from the Award Winning Lobster Bisque, served by cup, bowl, or bread bowl, to the Strawberry Spinach Salad, with pecans and goat cheese, drizzled with a maple syrup dressing. Sandwiches, wraps and paninis stuffed with various seafood offerings are also available. Don’t miss out on the Conch Fritters while you’re there. Dinner choices are available in the form of lobster, grilled mahi, steak, blackened chicken, and more. Of course they have tempting desserts, but how can you choose just one?
Garden dining among lush tropical vegetation creates a beautiful experience but highway noise is a bit distracting. The dining area is cozy and the friendly staff treat you well. They are located at 100211 Overseas Highway in Key Largo and hours are from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Check their website and Facebook pages for the menu and great photos.
