Conch Republic Seafood Company
ReviewsI am in the mood for a Conch-A-Rita...and you know what that means, don't you? It means we have to go and have dinner and drinks over at the Conch Republic restaurant in Key West. I am a Snowbird and I am staying right off Key West, thank goodness, because when I get a craving for a Conch-A-Rita I have to have one. It makes my husband crazy, but I can't help it.
I have been going over to The Republic for years and will continue to do so until I can't get over there any more. I like everything about Key West, I mean really, what's not to like? This restaurant is one of my favorites and the Rita is my favorite drink. So for the winter months when I am in Florida I head on over there every couple of weeks. It's not quite around the block, so I can not go as much as I would like. I can't complain though. My sister craves these drinks as much as I do and she lives in New Jersey all year long!
You should make it a point to stop in The Conch Republic Restaurant the next time you are in Key West. It is a beautiful thing to sit outside and watch the boats out on the water. Try some of the delicious seafood dishes they serve. I never get the beef dishes, how can you eat beef when you are in beautiful Key West? I've never had a dish I didn't enjoy and that saying a lot. If you can't get down there try the recipes on the website. You can't beat the Caribbean Ju Ju Slather for a marinade or a dipping sauce and the Habenero Chutney is really tasty if you like spicy...hot...foods.
The folks who run the place call the Republic Restaurant in Key West their little piece of paradise...that's funny, because I call it mine! Make sure to stop in this historic restaurant when you are in Key West. The people are friendly as can be, the food is delicious, the drinks are amazing and the view is perfect. What more can you ask for?
