Went on a Sunday night. Waited at least 10 minutes to be waited on! Poor waiter was running ragged but very polite! Waited too long for apps and dinner causing us to be late for a get together after dinner. Ordered the scallop appetizer! One was ok, the next was pure ammonia! Spat it out but tongue still tingled for... More

We can assure you that a rushed service is not company policy and bad scallops are not normal at our restaurant. If there is anything wrong with your food, please do not hesitate to explain the situation to your waiter or ask for the manager on duty. We would be happy to accommodate you and make sure you leave our... More

We have eaten here while vacationing, about 7 times over the past 5 years. It is my favorite place in the area. Amidst the huge number of chain places, it is a very distinctive, very popular local restaurant. The decor is a bit "over the top" Florida/nautical, but is fun. Definitely an excellent place for fish. The fisherman's platter is... More

I'm in the area on business, and was looking for some place unique to eat after a long day of travelling. The restaurant itself is definitely unique! Everything else was kinda just average. The menu has quite the spread of offerings, and they have a good selection of draft beers. I'd consider going back, but it definitely isn't on par... More

On first entering this location, we were quite pleased: As you can see with my posts, I frequently review restaurants, and this location was new to me. It was recommended by friends who said try it as a "fun" place. We went and it was a pleasure walking into the old Key West ambiance and bar scene. The menu was... More

Big sports bar inside; the rooms are dark but you can sit outside including on swing like tables/benches. Always a busy place filled with locals. Their menu is extensive from appetizers, finger...

I love their burgers and Bahamian Conch chowder. In fact they have the best Conch Chowder in south Florida and its every bit as good as what I used to get when I lived in the Bahamas years ago. The burgers are also some of the best around as well. I started going to Muddy Waters when I moved to... More

Really great drink specials during happy hours, and good food and service. I lunched alone one day, and brought back a friend for happy hour another dsy. A nice casual spot with lots of food choices and good service.
