Hogfish Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: You can’t miss Hogfish Bar & Grill’s giant tiki hut with picnic tables and a bar under a thatched roof on the last working waterfront in Key West. Not surprisingly, the specialty is hogfish, a mild, diver-caught fish with a scallop-like taste. The house specialty is the “killer” hogfish sandwich (lettuce, tomatoes, tartar sauce, Swiss cheese, onions and mushrooms, on Cuban bread), but it is best simply grilled or in fish tacos. Key West pink shrimp are steamed in the shell with Old Bay seasoning for peeling and dipping in melted butter. There’s also Bahamian conch chowder, lobster potpie, pulled pork po’ boys and a fried green tomato BLT. Toss back a cold beer next to a shrimper in rubber boots or a sunburned tourist.
