Great food! Great atmosphere on patio!! Surf and turf was amazing!!! It is one of the more main stream restaurants, but it sets itself apart with the deliciousness of the food :)

At first, it has the best view, nice music and classy style, very romantic. Good wine, even just for a glass - they have pretty big choice. As an appetizer i had lobster bisque, which comes with black caviar - delicious. For an entree i had lobster thermidor - the best think ever. First time i was here i had... More

Only in KW can you find a fancy restaurant where you can dress in shorts. The lobster bisque is my favorite, but every dish I have had there has never failed to please. I had the lobster and crab cake, my husband had the maine lobster escargot. We had already eaten some apps downstairs, then decided to see if we... More

Went for a very nice dinner, started with a bottle of wine, ordered an appetizer and when we told the server we wanted to split the Grouper, because we wanted some Key Lime Pie, he kind of didn't care. We wanted hollandaise sauce on the side, of course it came with it, we sent it back. It came back in... More

Visited the Lobster house after our wedding with a group of 8. We sat outside enjoying a sunset breeze. Tried the special that night, monkfish. Absolutely delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal and Krysten, our server, was as pleasant as could be. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We'll be back!

Picture yourself in beautiful Key West - sitting on a porch balcony dining on exquisite food while watching the sun drop over the Gulf of Mexico. That was my dinner last night. Obviously, the setting is phenomenal. Add to that the close proximity of Front Street (and downtown Key West) and you have a special place to dine. The wine... More

I ordered an Angus steak; my date ordered coconut grouper. The steak was unremarkable; the mashed potatoes were unremarkable and the steamed veggies were unremarkable. The coconut grouper was unremarkable. The service was slow. I wouldn't eat there again; go to Michaels instead or try another nearby.

A beautiful place to grab some top notch seafood with a heck of a view. The oysters are great and the service is fast. They have half price appetizers for happy hour every day, and plus you are right on the water . Win win in my opinion.

The service was very good and the ambiance was great. However, for the money the food was not that great. It was not bad, but the lobster was not something the cheer about or have again. Relatively, a nice experience, once.
