This was a great restaurant! Our party consisted of 6 adults. Half of the party got steaks! The were wonderful. The others had some type of fish and it was great too! So, steak or fish---take your pick as it will be wonderful!

What a gem of a place serving some of the best seafood I have ever had. Beautiful setting, fantastic service and the food was just divine. Miss this restaurant at your peril if you like fine dining.

After you have done the obligatory seafood restaurants, Half shell, Conch Republic and Turtle Krawls, and are looking for the next level up stop at Commodores. It is right next to The Conch and blocks away from it for quality. Delicious non-fried catch of the day,Yellow tail snapper on our visit was spectacular, presented in a mature way with salad...

We wondered by this hotel during happy hour and decided to stop in! I'm SO glad we did! Service was good, and we sat on the dock while people fed the tarpons! They had great beer specials - $10.50 for a PITCHER of Dogfish Head IPA and all appetizers were half off. We had 3 bowls of lobster bisque, huge... More

Our experience at The Commodore was perfect from start to finish! The waterfront location was so pretty, the food was outstanding and the staff could not have been any more accommodating! We, as well as all of our guests, thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Located on the Harbor among other long time eateries, this restaurant is always consistent. Climb a flight of stairs to get there but well worth the climb. The food is great, although the Florida lobster was a bit dry, but tasty never the less. Full bar, fantastic views and helpful staff.

We visited the Commodore Waterfront Restaurant (the snooty establishment upstairs from the Boathouse). Upon walking in we had to wait while 3 employees ignored our presence.

Elegant dining experience. We tried the Yellowtail which came with some nice potatoes and veggies done to perfection,also tried the seafood combo cannot recall what it was called, scallops mussels etc in a lovely sauce. They bake their own rolls which are served warm mmmmm. Waiter Kareem was very attentive. Beautiful view. Highly recommend.
