DESTINATION REVIEW PART FIVE – TRAVELING TO KEY WEST STOP AT SUNSET GRILLE AND RAW BAR RIGHT AT THE BASE OF THE 7 MILE BRIDGE

As we said in reviews parts one and four  It takes a little longer than people think to drive from Miami to Key West and if you took our advice and got an appetizer snack on Key Largo by the time you get to Marathon Key you will be ready to eat again and what better place than the sunset Grille.

 

THE VIEW IS INCREDIBLE – The sunset grill sits on the eastern side of the beginning of the 7 mile bridge, right next to eh beginning of the bridge. You are right on the water and if you need to you can even walk out on their little pier to get even farther out. The place is beautiful and this is one of the reasons that you don’t fly direct into Key West and do the drive. Simply gorgeous.

But that’s not all, the food hits the spot. If you are a sushi fan this is your place.  This fish is going from dock to plate. If you want something a little more substantial try the Cheese Bruger In Paradise, we did and it was great, filled the belly that thought it should have eaten a little more at the last stop.

If you need to shake off the driving doldrums break out the bathing suit as they have a pool that sits right near the tables. A quick swim before you eat and you are refreshed for the rest of the ride. As a heads up even if you don’t want to eat you may want to stop here and use the restrooms for if you are unlucky enough to get behind an accident on the one lane 7 mile bridge it can take quite a while to clear.

Some places are simple to write reviews about and this is one – great view, great food, great staff, great prices – what more are you looking for in South Florida?
