Flash Beach Grille offers great food, beachy vibe


MENU

The lunch menu includes soups, salads, appetizers, sandwiches and desserts. There are daily specials as well.

ATMOSPHERE

Fun, whimsical and very nautical. There are tables in the small dining area, counter seating and high tops by the bar. There’s also outdoor seating.

OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE

My brother-in-law remembered the lobster roll from when he and my sister last visited me two years ago, and he couldn’t wait to return to Flash Beach Grille and enjoy it again. He was not disappointed in the dish ($20), which features a mound of lobster (you can’t see the roll, but it’s in there) and comes with a mixture of regular and sweet potato fries. My sister ordered one of the day’s specials, lobster grilled cheese ($20). Her sandwich was stuffed with tasty lobster, and accompanied by mixed fries and cole slaw.

REASON TO GO

It’s a great place to take out-of-town company. Outstanding food — and beautiful presentation — in a Key West atmosphere.

SERVICE

Maybe it was because of the lunchtime crowd, but we were disappointed in the service. Two dishes were delivered to my dining companions, while I was left waiting for my meal. Our server eventually came by and asked me why the third meal had not been served — and all I could do was shrug my shoulders. She went off to the kitchen to check. Another negative: Water glasses were not refilled.

NOISE LEVEL

We snagged the last table during a very busy weekday lunch hour. There definitely was a buzz in the restaurant, as there were several groups of diners chatting.

KID FRIENDLY

Most of the tables were occupied by “lunch bunch” types when we dined. I’d leave the kids at home.

Grow your own paleo grains

It may be the oldest cultivated grain in the Western Hemisphere. It predates maize by centuries. When the first corn was still weedy grass called teosinte in southern Mexico, the people of the region were growing an earlier grain. It’s the sophisticated ancestor of our garden pig weed, which has carried many settlers through rough times with...
