it would be hard to be happy hour at this place. Our waitress was awesome. The wait was long because it was happy hour but well worth it.the shrimp were amazing and you couldn't beat the price. I would also recommend the key lime martini

Mike, the bartender is outstanding. The specials on the drinks and appetizers are awesome. My husband and I have been coming to Key West for the past ten years and this is always are first and last stop during our vacation. We love the oysters -three ways, steamed shrimp, conch fritters, mahi fingers, and the Mojitos!

We go to Key West every year. We have gone to this restaurant many times over the years. Unfortunately, the food, drinks, and management has just gone downhill. I would strongly recommend NOT wasting your money or time here! Go somewhere else if you want a positive experience!

We brought in our own mahi catch at lunchtime, just after arriving in Key West. They prepared it 3 ways for us, fried, blackened and grilled! All were heavenly. The waitstaff was very good, and kept our glasses filled. The grilled mahi was especially delicious with whatever they brushed on.
