Food is delish - key lime pie the BEST!

I suppose there are a lot of places in southern Florida who lay claim to the world's, or at least Florida's, best key lime pie. I'd have to say, these guys serve the best I've ever eaten.

The food really tasted fresh and homemade. There was a good selection on the menu for those with varied diets, and the prices were reasonable. Good service, too! We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.

Clean, good service, and excellent prices. The food was great...especially the crab legs. There is a 10% off coupon for Mon-Thurs only but was accepted for our visit on Fri.

What a great, cute little place. The service was great. The food delicious. I was so impressed that they had a separate menu with a good variety of vegetarian and vegan options. I was thrilled to find that the conch chowder was in a red, not cream base. It was delicious. I want some more NOW, but I'm back in... More

There were abundant, healthy and delicious vegetarian and vegan options, all prepared from fresh ingredients on site; the servers were efficient and helpful; the outdoor patio setting was delightful; and the prices were quite reasonable. Decent dining experiences can be hard to find in tourist settings like Key Largo, but... More
