Great Key Lime Pie

This is a nice place to eat and watch the action on Duvall Street. We try to not eat at the same place twice when we visit a city new to us. We ate here twice! Key Lime Pie was the best here.

Outdoor dining, very good food. You know it before you ever order from the place being packed all night, every night. The best place for people watching....just adds to the atmosphere! Recommend the blackened grouper, as it was just delicious! Try & get a table near the sidewalk.

Food was second rate. Service was poor. I would not recommend. It was recommended to us by a local and we almost always like local places, but not this one.

Huge fish sandwich, great iced tea. The sandwich comes with fresh made french fries which are not greasy or you can substitute a salad. Good key lime pie. Good service. Everyone at the restaurant seemed pleased.

My wife and I were in Key West on the 12th February 2015.

huge bun and the fish hung over 2 inches all around! I like that sauce is on the side as you don't need much. Abigail was the best waitress we had in 7 days in Key West.

Stopped by for a late brunch with my groomsmen for my bachelor party weekend in Key West. Great outside seating with friendly Key West hens/chickens to company, good view for people watching on Duval, and best of all.... Great food and bloody marys to cure the late night before hangover.
