My husband and I went to the Flaming Buoy while staying in Key West. We had the trio appetizer, which was plenty for two and quite delicious. My husband also had the trio entree and I had the catch of the day "Grouper with Lime butter". We did not have dessert, but it looked great seeing it served to other... More

We're having dinner @ this place with our baby. The waiter were charming and very helpful. Food was so delicious, espescially because of the good and innovative combination (lobster mac and chees, chocolate quesillada). It's the perfect place to go, when looking for a place in a romantic and charming atmosphere.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Flaming Buoy. There were several choices of fresh fish as well as a variety of preparations available. Ambiance and service were very good. They have a decent selection of beer and wine.

I have never written a review while I'm at the restaurant. However, this restaurant deserves many accolades. The owner,Fred, was so accommodating when our reservation was lost. We received wonderful service and the food is absolutely phenomenal. Make sure to get the lobster mac-n-cheese. We had a wonderful experience. I can't wait to come back.

This is a very small restaurant tucked away from the crowds of Duval Street, yet close enough to any hotel in Old Town whether you are walking or taxi-ing. I suggest you make reservations. In a nutshell, food and service were excellent. My husband had the fresh catch of the day and I the spicy tropical stir fry.....yummy on both... More
