With plenty of popular restaurants located in Islamorada, deciding where to dine can become a difficult decision. But have no fear, outlined below are 9 of the most popular restaurants in Islamorada to choose from and help ease that all-important decision-making process. Of course, Islamorada eateries focus on the local seafood menu, but many other questions exist, such as Where should I watch the sunset? Are any local restaurants famous? Which restaurants are best for cocktails? Or even other questions such as Where should I go if I want to eat something other than seafood? Again, we have you covered, along with which mile marker (mm) each restaurant is located at too. Now let’s review nine of the most popular restaurants in Islamorada. Cocktails First Vacations often translate to celebrations and there are plenty of places to celebrate in Islamorada. Here are two of the best places for cocktails with dinner. 1 Lorelei Restaurant and Cabana Bar (mm 82) The Lorelei, perhaps the most famous of any Islamorada establishment, remains the place to go for a festive sunset celebration complete with cocktails. Sunset dining with classic keys seafood dishes occurs nightly, but the bigger emphasis seems to be on happy hour-energized crowds. Both live music and local magician shows entertain tourists, but the highlight of any evening here is when everyone toasts the sunset to celebrate another day in the islands. Not up for cocktails? The Lorelei also offers breakfast. Enjoy the same water views with surprising morning zen at this nightly party place. A cup of coffee and a delicious order of shrimp and grits here is a great start to any day in the Florida Keys. Lorelei Restaurant & Cabana Bar (Photo via their Facebook page) 2. The Square Grouper Islamorada (mm 80) A relative newcomer to Islamorada expanding up from its original location in the lower keys, this “dinner-only” restaurant offers delicious food with a creative cocktail list. The bartenders show pride in making a properly crafted cocktail and their efforts are applauded by the patrons. Located on the end of a canal on the water, it provides both outdoor and indoor dining and has quickly become a must-go place in Islamorada.

Lorelei Restaurant and Cabana Bar

Lorelei Restaurant and Cabana Bar 81924 Overseas Highway Islamorada, FL 33036 (305) 664-2692   Lorelei Restaurant and Cabana Bar Sunset Hours: 7:00 a.m. to midnight Location: On the water Drink: All Your Favorites Eat: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner Music: Wednesday through Sunday Parking: The parking lot Boat Access: Yes Unique Feature: All open air Overview Lorelei is a popular place at all times of the day and especially at their nightly sunset celebrations. We have been to Lorelei many times. Sometimes we go for breakfast and sometimes for lunch. But our favorite time to visit is for dinner and the sunset celebration. You can enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, and sunset. Perfect. Lorelei is an open-air bar and has no permanent walls. That means plenty of places to sit by the water. Their bar area is nice and everyone is friendly and chatting with each other. But it gets even better. There are tables and chairs on a small beach where you can put your toes in the sand and enjoy your favorite food or beverage and get a front-row seat to the sunset. This little beach even has its own tiki bar. The Lorelei was wiped out in Hurricane Wilma, but it is now rebuilt and charming. Maybe that is why they left out the walls. Makes it easier for a hurricane to blow through. The band plays in yet another little tiki in the area between the beach and the main bar area. . This Florida beach bar has Wednesday through Sunday and sometimes twice a day. And sometimes a magician. We have gone to the Lorelei and made friends with other patrons. Being a dog-friendly bar, we have even made some 4 legged friends. Sharing Florida beach bar time with your 2 legged and 4 legged friends is very special. The food is good at this Florida beach bar and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Try the two mini-burgers. We called them mini cheeseburgers in Paradise. Most days the bands start at noon and that makes this is one great Florida beach bar. Add it all up, and this is a great place to enjoy island life on Islamorada. Where To Next?

HOW TO GUARANTEE CUSTOMERS WILL COME BACK POST-PANDEMIC

HOW TO GUARANTEE CUSTOMERS WILL COME BACK POST-PANDEMIC In a post-pandemic landscape, one might assume that it would be easy to get customers to come back to restaurants. After all, they’ve been stuck at home, cooking their own food in their own kitchens for more than a year. But consumers’ priorities have shifted; some are apprehensive about safety, while others may simply enjoy getting takeout more than they do dining in. For operators, drawing diners back to the dining room is key for business success; guests may order more food when they dine in versus when they order takeout or delivery, and they also may stick around for multiple rounds of drinks, which can add up quickly to benefit the restaurant’s bottom line.   So how can operators guarantee customers will want to come back post-pandemic? There are a few things to consider. 1. Highlight safety In Technomic’s 2020 Future of FSR: Family Style & Casual Dining Consumer Trend Report, consumers shared the factors that would encourage them to dine in at a restaurant. Topping the list are some expected factors, such as that the restaurant is following government safety guidelines, as well as the development of a COVID-19 vaccine. Additionally, 37% of consumers said that they’d like for the restaurant to go above and beyond government safety guidelines—that is, even if distancing is no longer required, some patrons may appreciate a more spaced-out dining room. But safety isn’t the only factor that will get customers in the door—about a quarter of consumers said that special deals and promotions for dine-in visits would encourage them to do so, and about one in five said new or unique menu items being offered would encourage them to dine in. 2. Promote innovation Unique menu items and promotions are going to be crucial for enticing customers to come to dine in. Try introducing a couple of LTOs and showcasing game day promotions such as happy hour deals. Operators can also consider partnering with distributors or suppliers to feature a certain brand of drink, for instance, as another way to get people in the door. Get creative—learn about current food trends, including better for you, plant-based and comfort foods, to inform menu changes and LTO plans. 3. Leverage entertainment and sports Finally, leverage entertainment as a way to get customers excited to dine in. Sure, watching the big game at home surrounded by friends and […]
