Three lobsters on ice with lime for purchase during lobster season in March

Enjoy Fresh Florida Lobster This March (in Season)

Most of the lobster on Key West menus isn’t necessarily the kind you’re used to in other parts of the country. Our lobsters – called Florida spiny lobsters – may lack the big claws characteristic of their northeastern cousins, but they make up for it in extra tasty tails. No Key West culinary experience is complete without trying locally caught spiny lobster and there are oh-so-many ways to enjoy them. But if you’re looking for them fresh off the boat, get ‘em before the end of the harvest season on March 31.

Event participants purchase tickets, which are used in exchange for drinks and small plates of each restaurant’s tastiest dishes. This treat for the taste buds is held at the picturesque Truman Waterfront, and it’s a fantastic place to soak in the setting sun with a glass of wine and a full stomach.
