Happy hour is 4 to 6 PM 7 days a week. Half off all drinks and apps. Great oysters and shrimp. Sit out sit but get there early as it fills up quick.

All of the food we ordered was great. But the conch fritters and the Key Lime Pie were the best on the trip. We tried those 2 dishes everywhere that served them.

I have vacationed in Key West several times over the past few years. I always stop by Alonzo's. I'm not big on oysters, but the oyster fans at the bar were enjoying theirs. The specials at happy hour are outstanding.! I highly recommend the steamed spice shrimp. I generally get an entree salad or regular entree, as well. You never... More

Awesome selection of seafood. Wonderful view from their outdoor seating. Took starving family of five after long day on the water. Busy but not slow at all.

Went to Alonzo's this past week and while it was not terrible..it was not great either. They dont have much of a beer selection if you are looking for IPA's and microbrews. Food is "ok" dont expect to be wowed by anything. Conch fritters were the best thing there. Two of us had blackened mahi sandwiches. They were just a... More

During our visit, ALL bar drinks during Happy Hour were 1/2 price! Plus they have a great oyster bar. The menu overall is mostly just fish, but it is Key West…..Oh, and the location and atmosphere were great! Right on the water (marina)...

but really, not great either. Trip advisor doesn't allow for much equivocation. Still, I was there twice, and the food and service was just fine, but nothing over the top. And should you go there, for lunch, well, yes you should. Sit out side, and the service was good, all in all. Get a simple meal and a beer, you... More

Great location near marinas and Mallory Square. Best shrimp salad I ever had. My friends were pleased with their seafood too.

We were really hoping for some great seafood while in Key West, we did not find it here. Our server was great, but everything not so much. Our drinks were terrible, the worst mojito I had in Key West. Our food was just OK. I'm sure there are better sea food restaurants in Key West.
