Captain’s Tavern Restaurant & Seafood Market
Bill and Audrey Bowers opened the doors to Captain’s Tavern in 1971 and continue to play an active role in serving up some of the freshest seafood around. Most ingredients are mixed on-site for homemade concoctions like dressings and sauces, which are perfectly paired with the daily freshly-filleted selection. Other menu additions such as the Dijon Roasted Snapper and a full sushi spread complement a variety of classic seafood specialties like fresh Maine lobster, soft shell crabs from the Chesapeake and stone crab claws from surrounding local waters.
The Fish House
Servicing the Upper Keys since 1987, The Fish House embodies the laid-back ‘Keys’ style dining experience, paired with a variety of locally caught and cooked on-site seafood. Diners will find yellowtail snapper, grouper, mahi-mahi, lobster, stone crab and shrimp, but the mother of all dishes at The Fish House is their celebrated Fish Matecumbe. Guests can enjoy their meal in a choice of three dining areas: an air-conditioned dining room, piano lounge, or outdoor patio suitable to South Florida weather practically year round.
