As a traveler its always best to find where the locals go, and in Islamorada this is growing to be the hangout for the locals. Its tucked away in a nice location. The food is very good and we usually enjoy the live music in the evening.

Smugglers Cove has the most amazing food! I even went back or a second night. They have amazing hamburgers and great seafood selections. The atmosphere was very pleasant, it really gives you the "keys" feel. Also both nights they had spectacular bands. I can't forget the great and friendly service! They also have a hotel and marina which are very nice an productive. I defiantly recommend Smuggler Cove!

I heard about Smuggler's Cove from a friend and decided to try it, although I was apprehensive due to the "bar" part. Bars often do not have great food. Not the case with Smuggler's. My family was in town for the Conch Fit event at Smuggler's, so we decided that was the perfect time to try the food. I had the Fettuccine Alfredo and my husband had the Fisherman's Platter. The food was great, the atmosphere was inspiring and our waitress (Erics) was very attentive. Highly recommended!
