We had a late dinner here last night and it was amazing. All of the seafood entrees were exceptional. We tried Mahi-Mahi, Lobster thermadour, Mac and Lobster, and many other dishes. All were incredible. The only downside was one of our guests had the ribs and said they tasted funny. She got back to the room and was sick to... More

The Chelsea House Hotel recommend this restaurant and it wasn't a letdown! Food was delicious. A little hard to find because it was off the beaten path. Make sure to stop in and dine here!

Was a little nervous when walking up to this restaurant. Our GPS said we were .1 miles away, yet we were still walking through a residential neighborhood. Then, out pops this delightful restaurant built into an old home. Definitely off the beaten path, but offers a quiet, romantic experience for dinner. We sat outside on the wrap around patio. Gorgeous... More

We decided to try the flaming buoy because of recommendations from trip advisor. We ate at this restaurant our last night in Key West. It was the best food we ate all week. The chef knows what they are doing. The food was cooked PERFECTLY. Yes, the price is higher than some of the other places around town, but it... More

A local recommended going here and was a great suggestion..We took a cab from Mallory Square area but walked back after dinner. If you don't like spicy make sure you look at descriptions. The lobster mac n cheese in the trio was awesome and the Filet Company Three Way was a combination of ground beef chili, dark chocolate & spices... More

Not sure where to try a different seafood restaurant in Key West on a Friday night away from the touristy Duval Street, we let TA guide us to this warm, local gem. Brian and Mica provide you with what most people want from dinner: great conversation, food recommendations, presentation, and a terrific evening. Its small, quaint and up and coming.... More
