Super Seafood

First time ever and will definitely be back. To start we had grilled avocado with parmesan buttermilk sauce - Amazing! We then had Mahi sandwiches with friend tomato. Excellent!!!!! Definitely a spot you want to visit.

sat outside and had the most delicious shrimp in the world. Portions very generous, as was the mason jugs the drinks were served in. Refills on coke, the waitress was so attentive and friendly. Prices good too, worth a visit!

I had the mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat-to die for! And the spinach and goat cheese salad with all the little crunchy ingredients was very good. My husband loved his conch chowder and huge burger. A very nice place to stop for lunch! Our server was so friendly and efficient!

The decor and atmosphere is old Florida so it is tired. You can wear about anything you want here. Hey it is the Keys so you want Old Florida and for it to be laid back. The food is why you go out and the food was a grand slam. Fresh seafood prepared right. All 5 of us had a... More

I started my dinner with the conch muniere, followed by the yellowtail Hemingway. Let me say that it was one of the best fish dishes I have ever eaten. I will be back!

Chains are chains for a reason … hullabaloo at Ballyhoo’s The food was good, very good. We loved the Jerked Fish with Fried Tomato Sandwich. The fries accompanying the sandwich were tasty flavored with a “bacon salt”. Although they seemed too thin to be “house cut”, they were cooked in that McDonald’s fashion almost everyone likes – crispy on the... More

Thank you for your review! :) Since we are not a chain restaurant, at all, we make individual decisions for our restaurant. We choose to use wine based Liquors in the absence of a liquor license. They are crafted because we infuse them ourselves, in house. Wine based rum, vodka, and tequila, are infused with fresh fruits, herbs, etc to... More

I have eaten here a couple of times, and the food is always delicious. The snapper is so tasty. Upon recommendation from another patron, I tried the fried chicken, and it was possibly the best I've had in years. The atmosphere is very laid back, which is no surprise fro the Florida Keys. Well worth a visit, for sure.

We've been coming to Key Largo and Ballyhoo's for 3 years now. It was the first place we ever ate at in the Keys, and we will keep going back. We've never had a bad meal, and the service is (nearly) always great as well. The sweet tea is the best we've had down here, and the key lime pie... More
