The drive to Key West is a notorious pain in the ass, so save some gas and just go to Monty’s instead. By no means is this the best place for seafood in Miami, but if you hold out for one of their tables with a good view of Biscayne Bay (there are many at the very large and mostly outdoor raw bar) and order a Miami Vice, you won’t care because if there is one tried-and-true Miami equation, it’s water views plus frozen alcohol equals happiness.
