 More About Turtle Kraals:  Key West’s colorful mix of food and culture is influenced by generations of settlers from the nearby Caribbean islands. Turtle Kraals Bar & Restaurant celebrates this culinary blend of the tropics by delivering authentic Key West dining and cocktails on the waterfront in a unique and historic location.  Located at 231 Margaret Street in Key West Bight Marina, nestled in the city’s renovated Historic Seaport district, Turtle Kraals offers a perfect vantage point for appreciating the island’s seafaring tradition. As a major destination for locals and tourists who want to preserve the spirit of a working waterfront, the Bight and its Harbor Walk offer a unique blend of old and new Key West. From its access to sunset sails on historic schooners to diving, fishing, parasailing, and reef expeditions, Turtle Kraal’s setting embodies the unique character of its island community. Once the center of the shrimping, turtling and sponging industries, the active marina still plays an integral role in the economy and local color of Key West.
