Okay, Lucy isn’t really a German name and there are most assuredly dishes on the menu that have nothing to do with German cuisine. On the other hand, the array of schnitzel (jaeger, rahm, zeiguener, peppercorn) brings back fond memories of dining in Germany and they have Spaten and other excellent beers on tap. Lucy’s has followed the rule of being a restaurant in Key Largo if you aren’t on the water. Make it a fun place and pay attention to the food. They have done both quite well as they’ve taken a space that has seen a couple of restaurants come and go already. You walk in and have to smile at the “gastropub” and enjoy the atmosphere even before the friendly staff greets you. It’s a place run with an extended family and the latest addition is one of the family members who’s come down from up north and happens to be a pastry chef. Dessert, anyone?
Their Facebook is at https://www.facebook.com/lucy305 and they are located Bayside across from the plaza with Diver’s Direct. That’s 99620 Overseas Highway if you need a street address and they’re open every day except Tuesday from 12-10 p.m. Prices are reasonable and the portions won’t leave you hungry. Check them out and have a good time. We hope they do well and will return again before too long.
