Food overlooking the background!

We keep going back because of the food only . I would go more often if they would invest a little bit in the restaurant look. It's old and looks like a cantina to me but always happy with the food. Service went from mediocre to good. Looking forward to some improving in the look.

Had a delicious seafood dinner, many wonderful menu items to choose from. Lovely piano music. The Key Colony Inn is a Keys classic.

Loved the guy playing piano, and the food is absolutely fantastic. We decided that they have the BEST key lime pie out of all that we tried. Will definitely go back if in the area!

More variety than you usually get in the keys these days. The snapper Sicilian was perfection. They even added almonds to my fried shrimp when I asked. It's not... More
