A+ Food & Service!!!

The place doesn't look like much from the outside as we drove past it once before coming back and trying it. Variety of seating, we sat at a table in the bar area. Greated immediately by a very personable waiter (can't remember his name, tall guy with glasses)...anyway, got our order and drinks... read more

Seating choices are inside, patio, or outside. We sat outside directly next to the marina, what a view! The food was excellent! I had the lobster reuben and my husband had the fried shrimp, both tasted fresh and delicious! The thinly sliced onion rings for an appetizer were wonderful too! Highly recommend this place!

Love this place. You can sit inside or out, small but comfortable, and the food is always good. We popped in for a late lunch (3:45) and we could still order from the lunch menu. Coconut yellowtail basket for $14 was plenty big, crispy and fresh! This place is worth finding.

This restaurant was recommended to us, and we are so glad that we ate here. We ate on the porch, and it was beautiful on the water. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We got our food quickly, and it was delicious. It was a great value; we got so much food.

Nice view of marina and ocean in bar/outdoor seating area. Bartender was our server and was very attentive. Wife had greek salad, and I had fish tacos. Greek salad was nice, but really overdressed. Fish tacos were outstanding. Will hit this spot again on drive from Miami to Key West.

Stopped for a late lunch. Very pleased with the Mahi grilled tacos and chunky cole slaw. Corn fritters are sooo good we ate them as dessert. Friendly, helpful waitstaff, Tiff was great. And she's from south Phila! 😀. Beautiful venue on a canal with a marina, outdoor tables, flowering hedges, everything very enjoyable. For the artsy eye, the colorful table... More

Cracked conch, fish tacos, fish dip .. all very good. Typical Keys atmosphere. You can sit inside (A/C) or on the porch (screened in with lots of ceiling fans) or outside under a tiki hut right on the water. This is a very consistent place for me and I have never been disappointed with the food.

We were looking for a "new" place to stop and eat after reaching the Keys, and we noticed the sign (we've looked at it each time we visit the Keys, but never stopped) and decided to stop in. Nice little place. Beer was cold, food was good and reasonably priced.

This place always gives us a bit of trouble to find, but when you do find it, it's worth it. We walked in and chose a table near the bar. A cool breeze was blowing, the sun was setting behind us, and there was mesh to keep the noseeums out. Service was excellent. We ordered the Spinach Artichoke Dip ($9)... More
