This pastel-hued waterfront structure was built in 1889; the restaurant didn't come around till a century later. Old Key Lime House is a huge draw for tourists and locals who frequent the Chickee-hut bar on the water and come for its seafood by car and boat. The island-themed eatery is known for its Caribbean flair with foods -- shrimp gazpacho and coconut fish fingers are typical starters, but clams, fish dip, and peel-and-eat shrimp make for a bar menu or small meals. Think mergarita chicken with a Key lime beurre blanc, island-style mahi, and coconut shrimp. Expect Florida -- not Maine -- lobster tail served with a mango butter. The place rocks on weekends, with boaters and beachgoers coming in for drinks and apps and staying till the wee hours to hear the band. Expect a wait for dining tables indoors on weekends in season. And don't ask for separate checks -- they don't do them -- and don't tip if you're more than a party of six -- it's included. But save room for the signature Key lime pie.
