Another recommendation from the boat captain. This is a sister restaurant to The Fish House and looking at their hours reminds you of the Key Largo uniqueness. Some businesses close for a month at a time during the quiet season. The Fish House is closed in September, but Encore is open - weird.
Kari got the Key Like Margarita with graham cracker on the rim. It was strange, in a good way.
A lot of staff conversation going on within earshot of the customers. I learned a lot about the inner politics of Encore.
Lots of cool Bogart movie posters on the wall: Key Largo, The African Queen, Casablanca...
Kari tried the Spiny Lobster, which is supposed to be a bit sweeter than it's cousin from Maine. I thought it a bit tough but still great flavor. The vegetables were zucchini and carrots sliced thin. It also came with mashed sweet potatoes which were excellent. 3.5
I had Snapper Matecumbe, which is broiled and typed with onions, shallots, basil, capers and tomatoes. This was awesome. Truly a great way to serve a nice fish fillet. 4.75
