I really love this place...food/atmosphere/etc...I have eaten there in previous KW trips and this time (May 19th and 20th, 2012) was equally delicious. For dinner, we had the fish special (yellowtail snapper), steak, pork and shrimp...each dish was very well prepared and the sauces were excellent. This is my favorite place for breakfast...eggs benedict, pancakes, omelet, granola...all were prepared very... More

My wife and I had eaten at the Blue Heaven restaurant several times during past visits to Key West and we were always pleased with the food and service but this time there were four of us; my wife, brother and sister-in-law and myself . My brother and sister-in-law had never been to the restaurant and were eager to try... More

By far, the best breakfast on the island. Quirky, fun and defies the health laws of most other places. The chickens in the backyard typically won't bother you, but might make some wonder how they get away with it. But hey, it's Key West. A great meal and a fun experience. Highly recommended.

Did not have a full meal at the restaurant. I did have a slice of the Key Lime pie that I had heard so much about. Let me say I was not disappointed. It was a little pricey I thought but hey that's what vacations are about. The outside environment was very relaxing and nice for a place off the... More

My husband and are are foodies, and our vacations are usually all about meals and drinks! This was the only restaurant we went to twice during our week long stay in Key West. Once for dinner, and back again for breakfast. That should say a lot. The dinner was incredible. Our waitress, Penelope, was very helpful with the menu and... More

This place has a really nice outdoor area. While waiting for our table during Sunday brunch we had some bloody mary's. They were made really well and tasted great! We ended up sitting inside to avoid waiting 45 minutes for an outdoor table. We had the specials which were shrimp and grits with Vermont white cheddar and the lobster omelet.... More

I went here several times last summer (review is much overdue, I know), and the lobster benedict with key lime hollandaise was sublime. My husband had a shrimp and lobster omelet. They give you a good portion of lobster which justifies the price. Each time we came, we arrived early to avoid the line, and we're really glad we did... More

I remember Blue Heaven from @ 8 years ago. It's lost much of its charm. The nicest thing was the 3-piece live music. We ordered 2 of the specials - an entree, a sandwich and 1 margarita. Tab was $48 before tip. Our taxi driver said recent publicity had gone to the owner's head - and our pocketbook.
