Ceviche and drinks

My wife and I stopped by here for a little snack to hold us over until after the main dinner rush. We had some really good conch ceviche and a couple drinks. We were able to get a seat at the oyster bar without any wait at all and the bartender was great. The ceviche was perfectly prepared with... read more

We stopped several times at Alonzo's during our recent trip. I enjoyed the raw bar - the shuckers are pros and the oysters fantastic. My wife liked the service and cocktails. Good food, good service, and a great happy hour.

Fairly noisy and dirty place. Three types of cooked oysters a disappointment. Pork/conch chowder excellent. Booths with hard wooden benches. Quite noisy.

The food was good. A little overprices but the server, Kanzie, was the sweetest server we have had so far in Key West so she made up for everything else.

Half price apps and drinks during their Happy Hour. The apps were delicious.The oysters and conch fritters were our favorites.Bloody Mary's were top notch. Stone crabs (not happy hour deal)were very expensive and not worth it. Outside view is very nice.

We had just rolled into Key West and on a local advice jumped on our bikes and headed over for Happy Hour at Alonzo's. The Oyster sampler was great and the variety of bar items was impressive too. While we didn't have time for the dinner menu, we saw a lot of yummy sounding items - certainly a place we'll... More

We love seafood and Alonzo's does it the right way. The key West pink shrimp are always sweet and delicious. To expensive? Not at all. The happy hour deals are fantastic. At regular prices everything is still just as tasty. This is the place that I found to have the best selection of oysters on the half shell. The bartenders,... More

We went for Peel and Eat Shrimp... it was more than double any other place else in Key West. Try another place. The beer selection was not that great and drinks just so-so. Would not recommend.

Alonzo's happy hour is the best in town. The quality of the food is excellent and the drinks are delicious. We have tried other places but just keep coming back to Alonzo's.
