As the locals who come daily for happy hour will tell you, this is a Lower Keys institution and a dive in the best sense of the word (it’s a converted gas station). Diners (outside, anyway) share the joint with stray cats and some miniature horses out back. It’s run-down, but in a charming Keys sort of way (hey, they serve beer in jelly glasses), and a handful of tables, inside and out, are shaded by banana palm trees. Fish is a mainstay, though soups, salads, sandwiches (try the lobster Reuben), and omelets are also good, as are meatless chef’s salads and spicy barbecued baby back ribs. Sunday brunch especially rocks, with amazing Benedicts, and there’s great live music every night.
