Fodor's Review

This circa-1947 landmark inn and its vintage neon sign is a slice of Florida Keys history. Period photographs decorate the wood-paneled walls. Breakfast options include surprises like French toast made with challah bread and Captain Morgan batter, and Keys Benedict with a blue crab cake. For lunch, skip the fish dip, and opt for lobster mac and cheese. Turtle chowder (don't gasp; it's made from farm-raised, freshwater turtles) is a staple. For dessert, the seventh-generation pound cake gets a standing ovation.
