Tucked away in an Old Town neighborhood on Packer Street. Loved sitting outside on the porch with the twinkling lights at dusk. Very friendly wait staff, food was wonderful! Half off bottles of wine this month a bonus. Will definitely go back often!

I had the catch of the day (grouper) which was absolutely lovely however it came with a steamed broccoli cake which when opened had absolutely no broccoli in it which was a disappointment. My other half had the Thai curry which was very good. Wouldn't have the mango Bellini though as it wasn't very nice but they had a good... More

My beloved wife and I dined at The Flaming Buoy Filet Co and while it was good, it certainly was NOT great. I take my restaurant reviews very seriously so when I make a somewhat disparaging comment I want to back it up. We had an appetizer that was advertised as 3 items to get a taste of different items.... More

We had a party of 5. They were able to get us in for probably the last seating of the night. Very nice server. Not rushed through the meal. Food was fantastic! We all ordered something different. No one was disappointed. Half price bottles of wine on Tuesday a bonus!

Yes indeed. If speaking loudly over the din or wafting cigar smoke is not your favorite thing while dining, look for this restaurant on the north side of the Casa Marina district. An intimate dining room in a residential area, this place offers great food and service. The wait staff are that typical melange of colorful KW residents - casual,... More

This place is beautiful inside! The food was outstanding and so was the customer service! Prices are well worth what you get. A must stop restaurant!

We went on a weeknight. 2 others in the place and we had reservations and they put us in the corner! All the center tables were empty. Food was very rich. Not sure how this is Zagat's top 10 choice?? Maybe went on an off night. Wine prices were great though. A bottle for 24 bucks and you can take... More

It's a bit off the main drag in Key West, but the great ambience, service and food should draw you onwards. The dining room is dimly lit, the serving staff friendly and ready for a laugh, and the food is good. The lobster mac & cheese was delicious, and the ribs were great. My friend had the red curry with... More

This place was awesome! We were in the mood for steak and my boyfriend found this restaurant. Cute and tiny. Atmosphere is casual. We both got steak entrees and they were a great portion. Our waiter was really friendly. The owners/staff are also Star Wars fans!!
