I would say a miss on this particular restaurant, there are better views, food and staff at other restaurants along your way back to Miami, great little pizza place in the Win Dixie... More

The view from the deck is very nice. The food was pretty good, but a little overpriced. Wait staff seemed to have limited English, so there were some language issues in ordering. They have seafood, burgers, fries, hot dogs, popcicles, and fresh juice. There was an adjoining shop where it looked like beach necessities were available. I believe this is... More

Located in cape Florida state park, overlooks hidden harbor. Beautiful site and a good place to catch a snack or meal after a bike ride. Decent menu but a bit pricy. Wait staff not overly helpful. Food is decent

The food was good and the prices for the food is reasonable but it was hard to communicate with the staff because their English is not very good. Also, my son got an orange juice and they charged us $5.75 for a cup of orange juice, half-filled with ice.

We had lunch at this relaxed atmosphere cafe with a nice sea view in beautiful Crandon Park. The grilled lobster with creole shrimp is great as well as the grilled grouper. Do not miss it if you go to Key Biscayne, Florida.

This restaurant is located within a state park, therefore you will need to pay to enter the park. Not such a big deal since you nead to pay to park anywhere in Miami. The seating for the restaurant is a covered deck. You will be able to see the water, but don't expect a pristine Miami Beach type view. You... More

This was our second choice for lunch since the line was out the door in town. We were seated immediately even though it was just a little after noon on a Sunday. Good grouper sandwiches and enchilado shrimp. Great view of the ocean while we dined. Very attentive service.

At the end of the road on Key Biscayne, The Lighthouse Cafe is by the beach in Cape Florida Park. Although The Cafe appears to be a beach snack bar, with casual snack bar seating, the seafood is delicious, and the prices are perfect. With a Latin flair, fried tostones served with garlic alioli, are the best. Ceviche ($6 !)... More
