Cute eatery, delicious food

The food was excellent, the service was good but a little slow. The home made jelly was great! The key lime pie was also excellent.

The food is outstanding!!! Started with the stuffed mushrooms. Superb lots of lump crab meat then stuffed snapper it tasted like it was fresh off the boat. I'm not a huge he fish fan but I am now. Thanks Steve for a fabulous dinner.

Great food for vegetarians. We are vegetarians and they had a great menu for vegans, vegetarians and seafood lovers as well. Food and service was great. Prices were fair.

We were heading to Key West and on the way I called a friend to recommend somewhere- she said Ballyhoo's. From the minute we arrived and our server Donielle (sp) greeted us we were already having fun. She made us feel so welcomed and we laughed so much and so easily with her cheerful personality- just a great start to... More

The food was pretty average and way overpriced. We wanted to get the all you can eat stone crabs that were advertised outside but it was around $70 per person (which is alot to spend for a lunch) ...we split the appetizer sized portion and ordered something else. They were pretty bland and the rest of our meal was less... More

Stopped to this place on our way to key west for my birthday weekend. Food was simply amazing! I'm vegan and they have a vegan/vegetarian menu. The grilled avocado is awesome:)) I had the sweet potato burger even more awesome. Donielle was our server and we give her a 10+!! Super funny, fast, on point with everything. Had a great... More

Dinner was fabulous on our first trip - ballyhoo! Both my husband and I enjoyed the king crab, which was enough to share with our grandson. He enjoyed the kids mac and cheese. Restaurant was quiet when we first arrived and we're a little worried. But the food was nothing but superb! And filled up shortly after we were there.... More
