Fodor's Review

An informal seafood spot—serving crab cakes, fish sandwiches, and fillets—is covered by a chickee-hut roof built by Seminole Indians, it's perched on the Intracoastal Waterway and is open and airy. Observation decks with separate bars wrap around the back. In 1889, the Lyman family, some of the earliest settlers in Lantana, built this as their house, and it has grown over the years into the popular island-style eatery it is today. Kids love feeding the fish below, but families should dine inside. Live music is on the deck most nights, where you can arrive by boat. Of course, order the namesake key lime pie—the house specialty has been featured in Bon Appétit.
