We have dined here many times and the food and service have consistently been excellent. We request Meredith because she always remembers our specific requests and delivers prompt service. The owner is always on site and supervising all activities. One of the best restaurants and servers in the Keys!

We were here two years ago and met friends here this year. It is still noisy and slow. Last time, we were in the larger room and couldn't hear each other at all. This time, we sat in the smaller room and we could hear the person right next to us and that was about it. It simply is too... More

We eat here 4 plus times a week October - June. We have never had a bad meal. Highly recommended Chicken Capri, Ahie Tuna Salad, and Salmon cannot be beat for taste and price. Meredith has served us many, many times and has always been polite, prompt and most accommodating.

The bar service was good and food in restaurant was very good. Great menu. Great piano player! However, very noisy and avoid Meredith as your server if you can. She is very testy to say the least. Also, if you try to use two coupons from the local booklets, realize they will not accept one for wine and another for... More

Food was good--huge portions, however. Very noisy (Early Friday night). Nice live piano music. Restaurant did not honor coupon for dessert because we had coupon for free glass of wine. Two separate coupons and no disclaimer regarding drink and dessert. Poor customer service. Do not accept Merideth as your wItress--hair swinging into food on tray, very poor attitude, and rushed...

Had dinner and cocktails. Very, very noisy in the bar and the restaurant as well.. Couldn't hear each other talk at our own table. Our waitress (Meredith) was abrupt, rude and when we tried to use the. coupons for the key lime pie, became argumentative. She refused to honor them. We were speechless, about how to respond to her attitude.... More

Was here with my girlfriend yesterday. We were looking for an indoor restaurant and found this place. So, I was surprised by huge portions and good service. If you to try great seafood - just visit Key colony Inn.

Two couples were staying for a week in a duplex on the island, and though we cooked in several times, we decided to try the Key Colony Inn for several reasons. First, it was one of very few choices on the island, and second, it was recommended by locals. We went two times for dinner and it was busy but... More

Four of us went to Key Colony Inn on what is a cold night in the Keys. This is one of the few true indoors restaurants in this area and we guessed it would be crowded due to the weather. The restaurant was jammed. Fortunately we were able to get a reservation and were seated within 10 minutes of our... More
