Local Favorites in Key West

Savvy travelers know that when you want to experience the true flavor and food culture of a region, you must seek out the places where the locals go — dives, hangouts, cafes, food trucks, and more.

Key West is crowded with just such places where you’ll discover locals and visitors alike at a counter or in a booth next to one another, savoring local seafood, Caribbean cuisine, and fusion dishes that perfectly embrace the multicultural mecca that is Key West.

Drift over to BO’s Fish Wagon, a quirky place to grab a beer and a bite like their famous fried grouper sandwich, conch fritters, seafood platters, and juicy burgers. On Friday nights, jam sessions feature local musicians blistering out funky grooves and soulful melodies.

Fusing Caribbean and Latino flavors into delicious dishes, Bien is a favorite among locals who enjoy al fresco dining in a tropical-themed garden filled with bold, bright colors while savoring roast pork sandwiches and colorful corn on the cob. Locals often recommend this Eaton Street eatery that is guaranteed to keep you coming back again and again.

If you enjoy big portions and reasonable prices, DJ’s Clam Shack on world-famous Duval Street is the place to go. A comfortable place to grab a quick bite, lobster comes in abundance as does the charm and graciousness of the accommodating staff. DJ’s appeared on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-In’s and Dives, so you can bet this local hot spot will not disappoint!

When you join us at one of our three welcoming Hyatt Residence Club Key West properties — Windward Pointe, Beach House and Sunset Harbor — the dining options are limitless and your only worry will be trying to choose!
