Fodor's Expert Review Chef Michael's

$$$ Islamorada Seafood Fodor's Choice

This local favorite—whose motto is "Peace. Love. Hogfish."—has been making big waves since its opening in 2011 with chef Michael Ledwith at the helm. Seafood is selected fresh daily, then elegantly prepared with a splash of tropical flair. Try hogfish with mango sauce, or the catch "Juliette," with shrimp, scallops, Chardonnay butter, and toasted almonds. Carnivores can feast on prime-grade beef, carved in-house—with the kind of marbling that just melts in your mouth. Chef Michael even grows his own herbs, right outside the kitchen door. How about a watermelon-mint sangria? Just say yes. Gluten-free and vegetarian dishes are available. Sit outdoors on the covered wood deck and tap your toes to the live music, or dine inside amid dark wood floors and white linens.
