Nice Dinner Experience

Enjoyed the restaurant. Killer drink menu and the Calamari was stellar. We sat outside and Amber served us. She was awesome, full of energy, friendly and very knowledgeable about local things to do. Will come back!

when you order a lobster roll main entry, and the sandwich comes with a toothpick through it, you know you're not getting much to eat. About 1-2 oz of lobster. Waiter said they are under new management and will be changing their menu within one month.

We went for an early dinner at the bar. The Serrano ham/Brie French bread appetizer is exceptional. The calamari was tender and fresh. Farkle had the short rib dinner with polenta. The lobster Cobb salad looked good and tasted better! The bartenders, Mark and Dave, were excellent hosts. They have a large assortment of draught beer.. We had a Buddha... More

My wonderful wife is a vegan and I'm an Omaha Steak guy. Finding a place to eat is sometimes challenging. Square one was recommended to us since one of their owners was a vegan and they have vegan food. Yipee. It is off of Duval Street and we sat outside in a wonderful setting....with the exception of the two talking... More

At that time it was so good we actually went twice. Unfortunately out of the ten days spent in the Keys, this was our worst meal. We found... More
