Green Turtle Inn

Green Turtle Inn Review

This circa-1928 landmark inn and its vintage neon sign is a slice of Florida Keys history. Period photographs decorate the wood-paneled walls. Breakfast and lunch options include surprises like coconut French toast made with Cuban bread, and a yellowtail po' boy. Executive Chef Billy McCrossin lends a "Floribbean" flair to the menu with a healthy dose of new American cuisine: think turtle chowder (don't gasp; it's made from farm-raised freshwater turtles), drunken scallops, and a chipotle skirt steak. For dessert, the seventh generation pound cake gets a standing ovation.
