Food was good but service was bad. Waited several times for waiter to remember we and the table next to us were there. Waited for our check for over 20 minutes, went inside to cash register and waited another 10 minutes or so while waitresses complained about customers coming for happy hour and ignored a little girl asking for ketchup....

Okay... My wife and I foolishly went went for the afternoon "Happy Hour", touted as an excellent value for food and drink. If putting food and drink in your belly at a low cost is your modus operandi, this checks the box. If you seek fresh, regional seafood and a good drink- go elsewhere. I'll keep it brief... soggy calamari,... More

We have dined at Alonzo's several times on trips to Key West and sorry to say the quality was wained a bit. Alonzo's is ok for a quick lunch, the prices are reasonable, for key West, and the service was passable.

One of the locals referred us to Alonzo's. Happy hour is the time to go with half prices for drinks and appetizers. We enjoyed excellent food and service, had two appetizers and pitchers of beer at half price and split an entree. It was all good.

We recently went on vacation and stumbled across the restaurant and so pleased we did. The atmosphere was good but the food was fresh and excellent. All the dishes were fresh and wonderful. Worth the trip and the Bloody Mary was fantastic.

Great happy hour deals. Not blown away with the food. We got 5 seafood small plates. It is in a great location but I feel like the food could be much better. Maybe it's better during less crowded hours.

Went for happy hour on the recommendation of a local. Needless to say we weren't blown away by the place. We ordered clams casino, an oysters plate, and a pound of peel and eat shrimp, which to our surprise came out in like 90 seconds. Clearly they just mass prepare food for happy hour and shovel it out as soon... More

We were walking pass during happy hour and the place was packed. So we decided to skip HH and go back later. We waited about 45 min to be seated for dinner. Restaurant was very busy. The food was ok. The view of the marina and atmosphere were great though.

We went to this place for the first time four years ago and didn't like it at all. We forgot and went there again last night. The service was fine but he food isn't anything to brag about. I ordered their lobster sandwich and it was the nastiest thing I've ever eaten. For $18 you would expect better. To top... More
