Came here last year and thought it was great,so we tried it again. We were not disappointed. The menu was varied and flavorful. The wait staff attentive and quick without rushing you. I do think I like it better in daylight,because the view is better, as there are few lights to show the cove area. But all in all an... More

Best dining experience we have had in a while (twice so far this week!). The Jerk Chicken Wings and Coconut Mojito are a must. Everything we have tried had been delightful. Friendly and excellent service. Scott, the owner, is from Lahaina, so knows his island food. Stop in, you won't be disappointed!

Found this place on our recent visit in December, and came back 2 more times that week. This place is all about the food. Pacific fusion menu with daily specials and also local fish and seafood. Nothing disappoints. Casual setting with views of the mangroves at sunset. A little noisy at times with friendly service. The chef/owner (I guess) makes... More

We went here for our 33rd anniversary while staying at Bluewater Key RV resort. The restaurant is right on the water and we were able to watch the sunset while we ate. The waitress was happy and helped us make good selections of food and drink. The chef came out to check on us and other patrons. The food was... More

Despite having caught our own black fin we still ordered the tuna poke appetizer which is simply awesome!!!!! We shared the seafood trio dinner and it did not disappoint - twice baked mashed potato cake on the bottom topped with yellowtail snapper, crab cake and grilled shrimp surrounded by French green beans in a sauce that was outstanding! Drinks were... More

About 20+ minutes from Key West its worth the trip. The employes were extremely friendly and the service was fine. The menu boasts a large selection of fresh fish prepared in several different ways (your choice). The food was prepared with care. The taste of the food was equal to that of higher priced restaurants. The decor, although a little... More

This is an excellent place to eat with some really special food. Menu is varied and different. Nice atmosphere and good people. They believe they are there to serve you that is their job so ask and they will do if possible. In the summer and warmer months the open air is great and nice view of the sunsets too.

My wife found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and I have to say that it was well worth the 15 mile trip from our hotel in Key West. We took our one year old son there and all had a wonderful time. From the presentation and quality of the food to the excellent and warm service, I cannot recommend this... More
