If these 10 staggering wins aren’t convincing enough, know that, yes, locals do enjoy this historic waterfront restaurant for any occasion under the sun. Part of that can be blamed on 15th Street’s twofold vibe: Diners can chill in the 250-seat downstairs Dockside Café, where floodlights over the Intracoastal turn the saltwater emerald-green at night. Dining is flip-flop-and-fish-dip casual, a place to sip martinis or one of 140 red and white wines (from chardonnay to Stag’s Leap) as megayachts stream by the windows. (Any trip, naturally, requires you feed the tarpon with packs of frozen bait shrimp.)

The ritzier upstairs, meanwhile, caters to lovebirds, out-of-towners, mom and dad or special birthdays, and bears a separate menu and sharp views of the 17th Street Causeway. Try the Key West Snapper and Poached Garlic Mashed Potatoes (or a grilled New York strip for turf-lovers) to set the best impression for your guest.
