Lots of oyster options. We missed happy hour but looks like that would have been a good time to come. Unless you love oysters and are coming for that - there are probably other places that would be a better choice.

Perfect happy hour spot. You aren't going to find the greatest food, but it sure is hard to beat the happy hour. Located right on the water at the end of front street, the views are spectacular. Huuuuge tarpon rolling in the marina. Gorgeous boats everywhere. You would expect a hefty price tag. Not the case. 1/2 off all drinks... More

We walked a long way across Key West and were feeling worn out and discouraged because some circumstance beyond our control were forcing us to leave Key West much sooner than we had planned. We immediately felt comfortable in this Oyster Bar and soon enjoyed a wonderful meal. Our waitress was quite nice and even took back a dish my... More

We went on a Saturday for Happy Hour and had about 15 ppl in our group. We got a table outside and our waitress was very friendly and quick. We were surprised by how fad the food and came out given that this place was jammed! When it came time for the bill, she separated it with no problem. My... More

We have eaten at this restaurant a few times and have concluded that while the food is good, it rather lacks flavor/spice and is overpriced. My husband and I had a dinner salad and shared the fried shrimp plate, both decent but not worth the price for either. Our server was friendly enough, but we felt a little forgotten and... More

Came here for wine and oysters.. both were very good, service was good and the place had a nice ambiance right next to the marina. The waiter was very helpful with making selections and describing the menu. The Conch Ceviche was pretty good but the oyster selection was the best.

Happy hour runs between about 4 and 6 - half price apps and drinks (get a key lime martini). Can get super busy since it's not really a secret, but thins out after happy hour. Wait staff is very friendly.

We spend the month of July in the lower keys. Alonzo's happy hour is one of our must do's while visiting (at least a few times!). Love the flash fried calamari, conch chowder (red style), conch fritters, spinach parmigiana oysters, clams casino, buffalo shrimp & monitors. One warning, at 6:00 pm on the nose, the registers ring the full menu... More

Known for their selection of oysters....there were 5 the day I lunched there. Keep in mind the oysters are from the upper East Coast and West Coast and not KW and the prices were $2.50 or $2.75 each. They were delicious. They also offered 4 varieties of fresh fish caught locally that day. The restaurant is on the KW docks... More
