Hogfish Bar and Grill on Stock Island
Hogfish Bar and Grill on Stock Island is one of the best places to go when you are in Key West. Stock Island is just north of Key West. It is so close that if you don't pay attention you may not even notice that you have gone from Key West to Stock Island. To get to Hogfish you'll follow some roads around to Front Street and you'll probably see some signs pointing the way.
Hogfish is an open air restaurant with some extra seating on the dock which is wear we like to sit. This gives you a view of the fishing boats and even the big underwater salvage ships from Mel Fisher's Treasures. We normally go to Hogfish for lunch, and while lots of tourists go to Hogfish, it isn't nearly as busy or noisy as the places on Duval in Key West.
The specialty at Hogfish is the Killer Hogfish Sandwich, topped with grilled onions and cheese and served with slaw and fries. Hogfish has a great menu of seafood, but Josh really likes the chicken tacos served with rice. The daily specials at Hogfish are put up on boards a couple places so be sure to look for them. If you are looking for a really fun place to have lunch or dinner near Key West, we think you will really like Hogfish.
