Bayside Grill

Bayside Grill

Directly behind DiGiorgio`s Café Largo towards the bay, you will find Bayside Grille: an elevated, open-air gourmet yet casual restaurant. Come dine in island atmosphere at the Bayside Grille with its all-glass panoramic view of the Florida Bay, and its bistro-style open kitchen. The restaurant is a waterfront extravaganza that you have got to experience while in Key Largo. We offer fresh local seafood, daily lunch, dinner and wine specials. Bayside Grille, at the water`s edge has become a local`s favorite and because of our expansive views and great cuisine, we have the most-photographed sunset in Key Largo! Our Bayside Sunset Bar directly below the restaurant features Live Music Monday through Saturday and Happy Hour specials. A full liquor bar offering tropical drink specials and Key`s fare from 5pm till 10 pm. A FAMILY TRADITION OF RESTAURANTS Over the past 50 years, there have have been a few restaurants in South Florida that have been owned and operated by the DiGiorgio family. Living in South Florida, the DiGiorgios discovered Key Largo and fell in love with the people and the natural beauty the area had to offer. In 1991, the DiGiorgios purchased the waterfront property of B & G Goodyear Automotive at Sunset Cove on the Florida Bay, and turned it into DiGiorgio`s Café Largo. THE BAYSIDE GRILLE IS A REALITY After opening Café Largo in 1992, it didn`t take the family long to realize the demand for waterfront dining. The Bayside Grille was built from the ground up, at the water`s edge and opened in 1996. With all the family`s restaurant experience, this was a chance to diversify menus and get creative. And that`s exactly what they did. Over the past 10 years, the Bayside Grille has become well known for its Menu, View, Quality & Consistency. The Bayside Grille is a hands-on, family-operation. As a result, the DiGiorgios take personal pride in the quality of each and every meal they present to their guests. We, the DiGiorgios, invite you to experience our Bayside Grille overlooking the beautiful Florida Bay!

Harriette`s

Harriette`s

Dinner is one thing, but what if you`re looking for a breakfast restaurant? Try Harriet`s at Mile Marker 95.7 Bayside. While this Key Largo Restaurant located at Mile Marker 95.7 Bayside is known especially for its breakfasts, Harriet`s also serves lunch and dinner. Whenever we asked "Where`s a good place to eat breakfast?" the answer more often than not was "Harriet`s." In fact it`s one of the best known Key Largo Restaurants for breakfast. What I enjoy about Harriet`s is its unique specialness. I like one-of-a-kind Mom and Pop diners and roadhouse type restaurants. There`s something so American about them. These are places where a home-grown work ethic and an independent entrepreurial spirit result in plenty of good food and lots of hot coffee for hungry travelers and locals alike.
