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.

My fiancé and I ate here on our last night in Key West. We were seated outside overlooking the harbor, which was great for us because we enjoyed listening and watching the locals go about their business. However the couple next to us complained about the ship docked below us that playing Aerosmith. *Please understand that the restaurant does play... More

I have eaten at some extremely high end restaurants and I appreciate the fine dining experience. I would agree with the other reviewers that it was a casual atmosphere and fine dining combined. Our party ate outside on the covered deck and the view of the dock was very nice. I had the sea scallops(AMAZING!!!) and my husband had fish(I... More
