I highly recommend their Happy Hour. We visited Key West for a week and enjoyed their happy hour appetizers so much we went back a second night. Some highlights are: lampchops, steak kabobs, peel and eat shrimp, garlic bread, and coconut shrimp. Leave the diet at home. The servings are large and hearty enough for a dinner if you share....

Ate here while vacationing in Key West. I was not feeling great but my friend was ready to eat. I asked if I could just order the Macaroni & cheese off the kid's menu due to not up to a full meal. Waitress was not pleasant and said no way. Never checked back to see about my friend's meal. Would... More

We had dinner here on our last night in Key West and it was a great way to end the trip. Excellent service, quiet, upscale atmosphere. The portions were substantial. Food was very good.

The food was excellent and we had a great view of a storm coming in. The service was great too. It was just pretty expensive, however, and I felt like I was at a "special occasion" restaurant which was not what we were looking for at the time but we stayed because of the storm. It's a great restaurant with... More

My boyfriend and I came here for our last meal before leaving Key West. We read some pretty good reviews on the restaurant before choosing it. When you first come in, the downstairs is a different restaurant, so you have to go up the staircase to get to the fine dining area. My boyfriend ordered the prime rib and I... More

What a treat to have decided to eat at the Commodore Waterfront! I had read the reviews before hand and all said the same thing, great food but the restaurant appeared empty. Do not let that fool you! First off, the dining chairs are the most comfortable I have ever sat in. Our waiter John, was knowledgeable, accommodating and given... More

Food was great, surf and turf with a great fillet. Best key lime pie in town. Great location on second floor overlooking the water and marina. Josh our waiter has the job nailed! Helpful and friendly without being stuffy, overbearing or too talkative. I would put Josh at the top of the list of waiters we have sat with, most... More

A friend treated me to a wonderful dinner. Great ambiance - upper level of their more casual fare restaurant. Excellent service and delicious food. I has the lobster cocktail to start and the grilled salmon for my entree. Both were excellent. Friend had the avocado and crab cake as well as a steak and enjoyed both stating they were delicious.
