Appetizers are half price at happy hour. You can easily make a meal off that menu. Outdoor tables along the marina. Very friendly waitress.

Waitress was very nice. Food is average with very high prices. Note: Don't use their bathroom! You have to walk through a smoke bomb to get to the facilities. It was so bad that tears flowed all night long. It looked like the place was on fire and in need of the fire department. The smoke just ruined the evening.

We stayed in the terrace and views were very good over the harbour. Service was good and food was good although we expected a bit more from this place and the price.

My wife and I loved this place! We started in the bar with cocktails. A great room with dark stained wood and a really cool but not over the top nautical theme. We had the lobster puff pastry and it was awesome. Moved out to the deck for dinner. I had the hogfish and she had scallops. Both were prepared... More

My husband and I have been going to Key West for a while now, but have never eaten here. We loved it! The atmosphere and decor is so nice and peaceful. The baloney view is beautiful looking over the marina. We ordered the Crab Cakes and the Scallop dinners. These scallops were perfect! Our service was excellent. Christina was well... More

beautiful interior, nice staff(Erica)' good variety on the menu. The lobster bisque was wonderful, the caviar garnish was a surprise, the lobster & escargot was spectacular, as was the grilled lobster tail and the lobster oscar. Well worth the price

We had appetizers before 6:30, and they were half-price! Some of the best that we have ever had. Do not pass this by. Fun atmosphere, and excellent service.

Elegant place (respite from the busy next door super crowded touristy place). however, oysters rockefeller missed the target. and the ME lobster was served already with split head, so no chance to taste the whole thing. the thermidor was a much better choice.

We were not expecting much....thought it was going to be a typical beach lobster house, but this place was fantastic!!! Service was excellent, the food incredible, awesome wine list. I went with the local lobster tails and they were simply deliciously prepared.
