If you are a fan of key lime pie them you must stop here. The mile high meringue is one of the best parts. Also the key lime part isn't too tart or sweet. If you pass this place on the way stop and get a piece of pie.

Holy smokes! This place is incredible! My boyfriend and myself were driving home from key west and did a quick google search for vegan food on the way home to south Florida. We live in Brooklyn and there are vegan joints left and right and this place blew most of the out of the water. Everything was fresh and home... More

We stopped at Ballyhoo's as we were leaving the keys. Service was good. I ordered the snapper and they deep fry the whole fish and serve it to you. It creeps some people out but it tastes absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend it. It takes a little work to work around the bones, but not much. The meat falls right... More

Ballyhoo's is by far the best place to eat in the upper Keys! Everything there is homemade and their jalapeno jelly is to die for! When you're there make sure you try the grilled avocados, they're so simple but delicious! If you're passing through make sure you stop, it is a must!!

We traveled to Key Largo to do some diving with our nephews. We love KL but it's not easy to find high quality vegan/vegetarian fare there. Ballyhoo's was the answer to our hungry vegan tummies. Their vegan/vegetarian menu is fabulous and their black bean burgers are simply OMG AMAZING...so much so that we went back three times in four days.... More

The hospitality shown to us was top notch and so was the food. We stopped here for lunch and ordered the buffalo chicken sliders. There was so much that I couldn't even finish mine. However, I did make room for a bit of the key lime pie that my husband ordered! Really glad we stopped here!

We stopped here after snorkeling on our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier with the food and service. Great atmosphere and the key lime pie was to die for.

An amazing relaxed meal - impromptu meal with some friends. We were a large party with several small children. The kids mac and cheese was straight from the box but the chicken fingers were good - the waitress was thoughtful enough to bring out the kids meals early. I ordered the 3 course special with a wedge salad to start... More
