We wanted our last night to go out with a bang. We had dinner on the second floor of The Commodore. I had the largest, best lobster tail I'd ever eaten! There were 3 of us, this was one meal that we weren't going to think about prices, we got anything we wanted. We didn't go crazy, along with the... More

The view was very nice overlooking the Marina area. The food was average , be sure to ask for no breading if you are a light eater. We liked the conch fritters.

Not all tables have views over the water front. Food quality and presentation was average. Wine choices limited but there's something for all palates.

The good: service was great, attentive and quick service- except for when we wanted the check, it took a while to flag someone down . And the warm bread was nice. The bad: tacky decor- the seats were upholstered with animal print fabric which definitely showed its age. Neither my husband nor I was impressed with our appetizers or entree.... More

If you want a break from the famous Key West bars to enjoy a good steak or seafood dinner served in a beautiful atmosphere, then the Commodore is a good choice. This elevated second floor restaurant has a beautiful marina view. The décor has a yacht club feel and the service is attentive. The surf and turf is always a... More

We recently dined at this fine waterfront establishment and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, especially the prime rib, which was cooked to perfection and very tasty. The Yellow Snapper with Shrimp and mushrooms was also very decadent. Our server Maria, was a bundle of joy, very proficient, courteous and above all caring. All in all a most... More

Oh i wanted this to be great... Dont you always want a night out on holiday to be wonderful? Somehow it was just ok. First of all, what was good.. The setting over the harbour and the warm breeze - how blessed to have just that in January as a northerner? The bread was warm and tasty and my steak... More

Frequent travelers to the area recommended this for happy hour. The prices were incredibly cheap for Key West or anywhere else for that matter. The appetizers were half price and they also had drink specials. Very upscale with beautiful decor and a broad selection of food choices. Right on the water so that there are also great views (the restaurant... More

This restaurant is right on the water. The staff was great. Don't be confused when you go there. The ground level is a different restaurant. You must walk thru that restaurant to get to the up stair restaurant (Commodore Waterfront Restaurant). I thought the food was good. But my guess that the food was great.
