It had kick to it and was excellent. He had a jumbo shrimp dish that he liked very much. We shared a key Lime pie which was also... read more

Looking for a good seafood dinner, I ordered the blackened Mahi Mahi. I expected the outside to be heavy seared but did not expect the dry, cardboard like, overcooked center. Very disappointing. Beautiful view of the harbor.

My friend who has a boat at the Galleon Marina, rarely ventures far from the marina an is a big fan of the Commodore Restaurant. The place is nice and pretty upscale. the staff is attentive and pretty good. Just the food turned me off. I ordered Conk Chowder thinking it would be a creamy sort of soup unfortunately it... More

Always looking for new experiences we made reservations to dine at Commodore Waterfront Restaurant. Have passed by many times and it looked interesting. Located on the upper floor of a building looking out over the water it has an attractive location. The interior has much wood and the tables are covered with white linen tablecloths. The night we dined we... More

If you want to eat on the waterfront there are a lot of choices that all look pretty much the same from the outside. We were pleasantly surprised that the Commodore wasn't simply coasting on its million dollar location but served generous portions of well prepared, fresh seafood. And yes, the view is great.

This restaurant has a great location on the waterfront overlooking the boats in the harbour and boardwalk. Food and service was very good. I had a my best steak in Key West. Great choice for seafood as well and all at affordable prices.

Great food, great service, great venue. There is a very small table set up outside on a private balcony overlooking the harbor that we were lucky to get.

The menu of the Commodore has always been perfectly crafted. In my several visits to this place, I've always enjoyed great food, amazing service, and great wine selection. Food is always cooked to your liking, and the staff is always concerned about you!

We were recommended the commodore by the B&B we were staying at over the Christmas period. They were good enough to book us a table on Christmas day evening. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived, and we were shown straight to our table, upstairs with a nice view of the harbour. The service was excellent, and the choice... More

A friend gave us a recommendation to try Commodore's. The food was excellent and service outstanding! We had the Jumbo Shrimp Scampi, the daily fresh seafood special and Commodore Seafood Medley. All were delicious. Also had the Chocolate Sin for dessert which was sinful! Karim seated us and was very nice. So was our waiter.
