Ocean Grill & Bar
Ocean Grill & Bar is the locals' choice for special occasions. While the mood is relaxed (it's still Key West, after all), the cuisine hits all the right notes for a big night or brunch out. The generously wide porch is set with tables for an alfresco experience with a view of Duval Street, but the inside's a very nice option on hot days. Fish and seafood are the thing here, as at most island venues, but here the treatment is more decadent: Diver scallops are sautéed with grouper and served over lobster risotto. Lobster bisque, already thickened with cream, is served with a morsel of lobster floating in a swirl of drawn butter. At brunch, even the eggs Benedict has been goosed up with chunks of lobster.
