Tucked into the trees along the Overseas Highway, this Victorian-style home (family-owned since 2004) and its true-to-the-Keys style of cooking is worth seeking out—at least the Food Network and the Travel Channel have thought so in the past. The Old South veranda and patio seating are ideal for winter dining, but indoors the seating is tighter. Raisin pecan French toast and seven varieties of Benedicts, including conch, are reason enough to rise early to get your fresh
coffee fix. Lunch and dinner menus cover all bases, from a conch chowder bread bowl and vegetarian wraps to lobster and conch ceviche. Lionfish is proudly served when available, as is local yellowtail snapper. Interesting fact: the restaurant's "loo" was voted "Best of" for local restaurants.
