Now that I'm a certified diver and I've been spending much more time in the keys, I have been disappointed in the lack of vegan options. Until I found this place, that is...they have a whole separate vegan/vegetarian menu! We got the sweet potato burgers...More

How in the world has it taken us this long to visit Ballyhoo's? It has to be the location, which is in the middle of the road. It's kind of hidden. No excuses, now you know...you must go! What a great place! The menu is...More
