Hogfish Bar and Grill - Stock Island, FL

The guy at the pass and ID office on Key West Naval Station suggested this place and a bunch of people agreed.  We almost didn't make it since there were lake size puddles all along the route.  Luckily we were following someone braver than us so we could see how deep they were (you learn in Chucktown never to drive through lake sized puddles - google Charleston Market Flooding Kayak to see why.)

The menu said Havana Smoked Pork was a local favorite, so that's what I had.  I am so glad I did!  This was the best meal on the Florida trip by far!  The rice and black beans had a ton of flavor.  The pork was tender and delicious, author a bunch of add ons to mask the pork.  I even enjoyed the plantains!  This meal was easily a 5.00!

Kari had the special: Grilled Yellowtail with Chimichurri and Jerk Butter.  The fish had a lovely, crisp outside and was perfectly cooked and tender.  The rice was awesome and the green beans good.  4.75

Our first Key Lime Pie in the keys lived up to expectations, earning a 4.5.  It was totally different than any other KLP we've had - in a good way.

So far, Hogfish Bar and Grill is our favorite restaurant in the Florida Keys.
