One of my favorite places to visit, eat and watch a beautiful sunset over the 7 Mile Bridge in the Florida Keys is a restaurant called the Sunset Grill.
I had been to the Florida Keys several times but didn’t notice this establishment until my trip in 2016 when I went on my first book tour with my parents. We had a stop on Marathon Key and asked about a place to eat. So many people told us to check out the Sunset Grill and I was intrigued because I immediately thought of the song “Sunset Grill” which is a favorite of mine.
The Sunset Grill and Raw Bar is located on Knights Key, right at the base of the 7 Mile Bridge if you are heading south toward Key West. Talk about a view, especially at sunset – it’s absolutely beautiful! It’s the perfect place for an expansive view of the bridge. There are lots of places to sit by the water, or on the dock or by their pool. But be prepared to get splashed by the people taking a swim, having a good time while there is usually live music being played nearby.
The restaurant itself definitely has the island vibe and the food is delicious. A few of the menu items you might want to check out are the Smoked Fish Dip, Island Chicken, Fried Shrimp or the 7 Mile Hogfish Sandwich. Don’t think you’ll be disappointed with your choice.
The Sunset Grill was featured in my last book “A Wedding in the Keys” because I’ve enjoyed it every time I’ve been. And I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy it too!
