Good takeaway sandwiches for a lighter lunch

When we can't face any more excessive lunches out in Key West and we want something lighter, we get a takeaway from the White Tarpon and maybe even share a sandwich. Good variety to choose from.

We were taking a beautiful walk along Duval and through Key West's historic harbor when the heat got the better of us. Suddenly a sign advertising $1 oysters and Key Lime Martinis appeared. Best decision of the day! Enjoying the shade, the view, the service, the pour and one of the best darn values on the island!

Best deal in the area for raw oysters and peel and eat shrimp. The oysters are shucked as ordered and served on ice. The shrimp came properly cooked with a spicy flavour. We enjoyed the feed.

Okay. Where else can you get $1 oyster? The oysters that we had here were BIG & JUICY! You literally will not be able to find quality oysters in other places at this price. The price is super duper attractive for oysters. On top of it the quality is top-notch. I am not kidding about the quality- 4-dollar-oyster will not... More

We have stopped in here several times to enjoy some oysters and peel and eat shrimp! They have some of the largest gulf oysters you will find with real good flavor. Their peel and eat shrimp are large with a bit of spice. They make a very good Miami Vice and their Key Lime Martini is excellent! They have a... More

This hidden treasure is tucked away alongside the River Walk. If you ask the locals, this is the best place the get Oysters and don't by wine by the glass... buy the bottle! They sell bottles of wine at liquor store prices. If you cant finish your bottle; brown bag it and take it with you!

This place is located near the docks. We had just finished a sunset cruise and were walking by and decided to stop for an adult beverage. Key Lime martinis FOR THE WIN! Best drink we had while in Key west! We went back the next night for more.

We wanted to see the singer performing. It was cool and windy so we ordered their chili and a cheese plate. Just right for the weather. Service was great.
