We stopped in for lunch after flying all day from Ohio. This place was recommended by a local businesses owner so we decided to check it out. Large portions of food, friendly waitress, prices reasonable. We sat outside with a view of the canal.

Spent a week in Key Largo and ate at a different restaurant each day for lunch and dinner. This was my favorite. Great atmosphere and good food. Sharp waitress. Put this place on your restaurant list in Key Largo.

Set back on a side road on the Atlantic side, I've passed this spot many times and never realized it was there. We sat out back on the cut with a view of the Atlantic and boats, very relaxing! Food was great! Lobster bite salad had a ton of fried lobster and the cracked conch was very tender. Try this... More

Our first visit had live music - steel drums, really enjoyable and very tropical atmosphere. It was loud enough to enjoy and still be able to have a conversation. Some of our favorite menu items were: baked... More

The restaurant is situated at the end of an inlet from the ocean with boats docked very close by and you can sit inside or out looking out onto the water . Food was great ; good selection of seafood and many other choices ; large area suitable for serving approximately 20 people .

When the food came it was well presented and delicious. The cocktails were also great. Our server was attentive and made us feel very welcome. I... More
