Strip House Key West restaurant

Strip House: Top Key West Dining

Strip House Key West restaurant

One luxury travel perk: visiting the mainland U.S.’s semi-tropical, magical isle of Key West.

I’ve recommended Ocean Key Resort & Spa as a nice place to stay.

Strip House Key West lounge

Dining? Got a rec, too. Set in The Reach, a Waldorf-Astoria Resort, Strip House serves sensational steaks (including the namesake New York Strip) and delectable seafood. Inside, Strip House resembles a burlesque club; outside, it’s a deluxe beach deck.

  • Check out about the seductive menu, sultry paintings, and signature 24-layer chocolate cake at Strip House on Key West >>
