Turtle Kraals Key West

We made it over to Turtle Kraals to enjoy Happy Hour and to check out the turtle races.  Let us first start by saying, sometimes we can be disappointed by the larger, chain-like restaurants, but Turtle Kraals was a very nice surprise.  Located at 231 Margaret Street, you sit on the water.  Your view is of boats and the Historic Seaport at the Key West Bight.  Very, very nice setting.  You really feel like you are in Key West.  Highly suggest checking out the special discount coupons available when you visit the website (Turtle Kraals).  Also, check out the SouthernMost Rewards program for more savings.

The Happy Hour menu available was awesome as well as the Happy Hour house drinks.  Tried the Key Lime Margarita and the Tipsy Turtle.  Great way to start the evening!

As you can see the Key Lime Margarita was tasted before we snapped the picture.

The food was some of the best we had during the trip. Turtle Kraals Buffalo ShrimpTurtle Kraals, Key West

We had the Seafood Ceviche and Buffalo Shrimp and both were excellent.  We had planned to go back to try lunch or dinner, but never made it back.  It is on our must stop places on our return trips.

Afterwards, we were able to participate in the Turtle Races.  If you are in town on Monday or Friday, check this out!  You are supplied a number from your waiter and then if your numbered turtle wins – you get a key to open the locked box.  Inside the box is cash – how much fun does that sound?

Here is the video of our adventure – enjoy
