    Hello Everyone! I am brand new to the site and would love to hear some suggestions from all of you. My fiance and I decided on a beach wedding in Key West (Smather's Beach). Now we are trying to decide where to go afterwards for a small dinner party. There will only be about 10 adults and 3 children (ages 2, 4, 7). We have never been to Key West before, so we do not have any first hand dining experience there. Basically, we would love to find somewhere fun with a nice bar, not too quiet or too fancy-- because of the young children--we want to relax and be comfortable, and good food. My wedding planner has Conch Republic Seafood and Rum Barrel listed on her website, any of you been to those places?? Open to all suggestions! Thank you :)

      Congrats on your upcoming wedding. Im getting married in Key West Aug. 9th. We are also doing the ceremony on Smather's Beach. We decided on a dinner reception at Louie's Backyard. I like it because we could have the whole upstairs area to ourselves, it was close to our hotels and the beach and it was a beautiful place. I also visited the Conch Republic and it was a fun location, but it was too loud and busy for my taste. The Commordore Waterfront is another great place that I looked at. There are so many great places it's hard to pick just one. The roof top cafe is another nice place and with a group your size you could reserve the whole patio for some privacy and a great view. Where are you staying while in Key West? Good luck with the planning.

        Congrats on you Key West wedding....

        I chose Conch Republic Seafood as my reception site because the food is great and the sunsets on the marina are breath taking. They also have awesome mojitos ; ). Graff and Jennifer are great to work with and are very flexible.

          I have eaten at Conch Republic twice and it was very good. We also have eaten at Fogerties and Margaritaville. We actually had our Wedding Lunch reception at Margarittaville and it was fun and relaxed there is something for everyone.

            Hi there! We are also looking into where to do our Reception dinner for our Key West wedding. Rooftop Cafe and Conch Republic are both top spots on my list. I have eaten at both and they are both very good. I've heard about Louie's. Not sure about Rum Barrel. One spot i really wanted to look into was the Crowne Plaza. They have an awesome Rooftop view and fun happy hours with amazing sunset views. Not sure how expensive it would be though.With such a small group you could go to any restaurant really. Margaritaville is so touristy, i would avoid it.
