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

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

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

Got there 30 minutes before they were open, after walking along way to get there. They greeted us and brought us wine and bread until the grill was ready. Wonderful folks.cant praise them enough.

Found the 'Flaming Buoy' as a result of a conversation with a local who recommended the restaurant when asked what her favorite was. Turned out to be a real find. The FB seats about 30 (estimate) and is well decorated and comfortable. Staff was friendly and even played a 'Theme' song when we arrived based on my last name. Wine... More
