Key Largo Restaurants, Bars, Dining & Night life
Excepting Key West, it seems the closer you get to the mainland, the more restaurants there are to pick from. When choosing a place to eat, many vacationers rely on recommendations from friends, and some want to return to a restaurant they patronized on a previous visit to this area. The Florida Keys has an ever-changing population; some restaurants quickly fail and someone new is always trying to make their mark on the scene. Eateries often change hands and new management, and even new chefs, can mean a drastic change to food offerings and quality.
Key Largo is, in many ways, a bedroom community for the Miami area. Many people who live there commute to the mainland for work. And, many people on the mainland often drive to Key Largo for long weekends or holiday celebrations.
