Great spot for a great meal!

Another great find in Key West. Located on the docks with good views of the water and all the fishing boats. The food was excellent, service was spot on. Although this place serves great, fresh seafood, my friend had the Prime Rib which was so tender you didn't need a knife to cut it (served with... read more

Located on the marina in Old Key West, this place does not disappoint. The food was excellently prepared. I had a fillet and my husband a strip steak. Both were cooked to perfection. The strip came with Roquefort sauce- which was REAL Roquefort, not something blue cheese passing as off as Roquefort. The sautéed mushrooms were another delight. The service... More

Very average food, below average service. felt like the waiter really didn't want to be there. Attitude completely changed at the beginning when I told him I didn't want wine or cocktails. Beef was very tender and prepared perfectly but vegetables were soggy.

Our group of 12 enjoyed dinner on August 7, 2015 at The Commodore, prior to a wedding weekend. As the parents of the bride, we wanted to take close family and friends out for a special night prior to our daughter's wedding. Having never been to this restaurant, we were a bit nervous about hosting such a special event there.... More

Had dinner here with hubby. We both ordered the Yellowtail. It was mediocre at best. The service was just okay. Stopped by another day for happy hour. While the prices are great, the appetizers are not. If we ever returned, it would be for drinks only. This place is not fit for us and our foodie friends.

There are many restaurants along the marina area (Near Front Street) where most charters and tours leave from. We had taken the snorkel cruise that day, and upon arrival after sunset, were ready for dinner. We checked out several restaurants before settling on this one, based on the menu. We are glad we did. We started with the filet mignon... More

Let's start this review by saying we have been frequent flyers to another 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm happy hour on the pier (starts with an "Alonz"). LOL. Anyway, we decided to try Commodore's because they offered a favorite of my husband, lamb chops. All small plates are half price from 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm daily. I tried the... More

We just expected pub food in this restaurant, it's right on the marina, great to look out onto with fish being brought up to watch and feeding the fish in the marina. We started off with going down the cocktail menu, a mango one and a banana one and they were lovely. We the. Ordered food, again little plates, which... More

The commodore sits on the water above another restaurant. We always get the filet and is wonderful but on this visit the waiter suggested the blackened prime rib. He said people love it. I cautiously agreed to try it as did my husband. We were amazed at how good it was. Will have it next time again. Wonderful. It was... More
