Address: 227 Duval Street
Directions: main street Old Town
It's one of those places you've got to go if you're a parrot head. And if you aren’t, than it’s still a place you’ve got to go. Walking in you notice all the Key West and Jimmy Buffett memorabilia, street signs, and all the bright, loud colors covering the walls.
I ordered the "Cheeseburger in Paradise" which came with fries. It was made just like the song says; "Medium rare with mustard... onion slice... lettuce and tomato... Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes...” It was good and tasty.
There is also live entertainment at night and in the weekends. They say Jimmy does stop by and play when he is visiting, well not when we were around. Maybe next time…..who knows??
Next door is the gift shop if you need to say, 'Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt.' You’ll find all sorts of Jimmy Buffett merchandise, like t-shirts, various choice of music, and a whole lot more.
Favorite Dish: Cheeseburger in Paradise of course!

This is me in Duval Beach Club
Duval beach club is on the end of Duval Street (behind La Mer and Dewey House) and is located right on the beach. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is tasty and the menu is full and varied from the basic burger to mahi and grouper. The staff is very friendly, and the view is perfect; looking out upon the ocean with sandy beach in the foreground with a tropical drink in my hand. There are palm trees and beach chairs on the beach. There walks a “cabana boy” on the beach, where you can order your drinks or snacks. It is a perfect place to lie in the sun, and to eat a bit at Duvat beach Club.
Address: 1405 Duval St.
Comparison: about average
Directions: On the end of Duval street, right on the beach. (behind La Mer and Dewey House)
Kelly's Bar and Grill
Kelly's Caribbean Bar and Grill, which is located at Whitehead Street, occupies the original home of Pan American Airways. It is owned by actress Kelly McGillis and her husband. It is a lovely place to eat. It has a beautiful garden where you can eat. There are also inside tables so if you prefer to dine inside, than that is possible. Kelly’s keeps its charm with an easy-going taste of the Island cuisine.
Address: 301 Whitehead Street
Comparison: about average
Directions: The original home of Pan American Airways.
Grand Cafe, Key West
Right on Duval street is a restaurant called Grand cafe. This is a great restaurant. The food is good. A very friendly staff. You can sit inside or outside. Defenitly a restaurant that you have to try. Here's a tip for you, at the visitor center in Key West (I don't know the name, but if you enter Key West, go by the trafficlights to the right and then it is on the leftside), well what I was going to say is, that you can take coupons for a free dessert (and they have good ones) or a free frozen cocktail. You'll find the coupons on the frontdesk of the visitorcenter.
Favorite Dish: I like everything!
Comparison: more expensive than average
