White table cloths - check. Table side service - check. Gourmet breakfast menu - check. Hens and chicks - check. If you eat no place else on the island of paradise do NOT, I repeat DO NOT miss breakfast (or any meal) at Blue Heaven. It is the classic, ultimate Key West flavor in every way possible of what Key... More

We have been dining here for a few years. Originally Ricky's Blue Heaven, it has transformed into Blue Heaven without a hint of change in Key West vintage food and ambiance. Although famously known for a tasty brunch, we tend to prefer the dinner hour. They have a splendid fixed menu for dinner, but also prepare nightly specials, which are... More

When we first got there, we were told that there was an hour wait. However, someone told us that there were three seats open at the indoor bar. That was fine with us even though the outdoors looked great: Trees, flowers, and roosters with a bar to the side. We had a great waitress who explained their most popular dishes... More

I enjoyed the food here - dined here twice in a week. Dinner was a steak and scallop combo - three tiny scallops with a nice sized filet. Filet was over cooked (mw, ordered it mr) but still well textured and tasty and the scallops were actually cold. Finished with the key lime pie which was very good, but not... More

Waitress was very friendly, and quick to serve coffee and take our order. Food was delicious!! Highly recommend the shrimp and grits..When it was served to my table, other guests near by turned around and asked what... More

Wife and I dined there based on several people's recommendation. Walked in without reservations and were told a 40 minute wait, which in reality was about 20 minutes. Seating is completely outdoors in dirt-floor courtyard with baby chicks running around in between tables and legs. I forget what I ordered but my meal was "OK" and could have been served... More

Personally, I don't think it's sanitary to have "key west gypsy chickens" running around the pooping everywhere--but the powers that be in Key West seem to think tourists love it. Alot of the seating here is picnic tables, pricey food, with interesting atmosphere.

Great food and good service in an outdoor setting. Tons of hens and chicks running around to entertain our little children. We had a party of eight plus two children. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

This place is what Key West is all about. History that spans nearly 100 years and they've kept it authenic!

to a time when Key West was very different in focus and vibration. There are many items on the menu, such as the homemade breads, which when I bite them I can see the original chef's in their long gauze skirts and flowers in their hair, creating food for the soul. The food is always very, very good and the... More
