We went to dinner here for our 10th. Lovely place with amazing views of the marina. Service was great and the food was delicious. I recommend the lobster bisque (it has a dollop of caviar on it) 👍 There is also a lovely a swanky lounge that had a singer crooning to the guests

An enjoyable meal, lovely table & table setting, expertly cooked tuna and lobster. The welcome was warm and friendly, the waitress was attentive. A great location, with lovely views over the marina and the gulf. But it was expensive, probably paying for the location, and not a place we went back to. No criticism about the food, service or venue,... More

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!
