We had a drink at the bar as we waited about 10 minutes for a table. The place was hopping. A woman at the table next to us was eating the crunchiest fish, it looked so good. I ordered it too. It was delicious. Not fishy or greasy. My husband had jumbalaya. We also ordered the bruschetta as an appetizer.... More

We stopped for lunch around 1:30 on a Friday and were seated immediately. Not sure, but there must not have been many cruise ships in. We had a great server, helpful & attentive. The Key West Sunset Ale was good and cold, although bottled. We had the jambalaya which was delicious and a good sized portion, and the Dolphin burger... More

If you want to sit outside and be able to take in Duval while sipping a cocktail or having a yummy meal, this is the place to do it. The shrimp BLT was great and the Macon Bacon salad was awesome. The fried chicken on it was wonderful, as was the dressing. Prices are very reasonable too.

I did not find anything wrong with this restaurant. I was a server for 10 years, having been in the restaurant business, I look at everything! A local recommended this restaurant. Every one was so welcoming. Our waitress was so nice and the food was delicious. I definitely recommend!

Really great food- we ate there twice in the same week. The portobello mushroom sandwich was excellent, and the cheeseburger too (though it was hard to get cooked as rare as my husband wanted). Great atmosphere and place to watch Duval St. Service was great- and that can be hard to find in the Keys. A manager asked us how... More

Six of us stopped for lunch before we did a house tour. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Several of us split our sandwiches and she had no problem giving us individual checks. The good was fine and we got to sit in the open air in January.

Stopped for lunch. It was busy but table quickly found. The server was polite and efficient. Food was plentiful as you would expect and tasty. Of course location on Duval never fails to be interesting

Usually I steer clear of restaurant with plastic chairs, which is the case here... but that is really the only thing this picky person could find fault with. The service was very friendly and fast and the food was really good - we had the salad deluxe (like a chef's salad), which was very good, and the fish sandwich, which... More
