Key West, known as the Southernmost City, it’s so vibrant and full of energy! One thing I know is a good lobster roll and being from Atlanta they’re hard to find.

Every day that I was in Key West, I knew I had to have a lobster roll. I made it my mission to find and sample them all! Luckily for y’all, I’ve compiled a list of where to find the best lobster rolls in Key West!

Here are my top 3 restaurants in Key West to get a lobster roll!

1.Eaton Street Seafood Market

Eaton Street Seafood Market is like a market plus a restaurant so you can find groceries, fresh seafood, a great menu, and some tasty treats like key lime pie for afterwards! The lobster roll was definitely the freshest and there were large lobster chucks which I loved! Bonus, their home made slaw was delicious.

2. The Lobster Shack

This place is just what it sounds like. Lobster, lobster and more lobster. From lobster bisque to different kinds of lobster rolls like the BLT and Diablo lobster roll, there’s something on the menu for every lobster lover. The lobster here was more like a lobster salad on a sandwich and very delicious! The sandwich bread was legit so good!
