Upscale Food with Casual Dining

Friends made reservations for this place that we honestly have driven by many times and not even noticed. Don't let the humble exterior fool you, the food inside is close to fine dining.

First this place has great food and service. Draw back is that it is not have a water view. It is reservation early so call first thing. The bar area is small so if you arrive early, you will be most likely standing. I ordered a pina colada and the bartender with a grin said they do touristy frozen drinks.... More

We shared a 17&Delmanico steak and two veggies (spinach and asparagus) served family style. That was plenty of fantastic food for two hearty appetites. However, we could not resist a salty caramel gelato and caramel/chocolate coconut flan for dessert, and that was well worth the extra effort. Our steak was cooked to perfection. Sarah was a most excellent server. A... More

Classic steakhouse. Good food, casual/bar-like atmosphere ( more of a city feel than an island feel). Would definitely recommend -but would recommend after being in the keys for a bit and eating in local fish establishments. Was a great place to eat the night prior to our return home.

By far one of the best meals I have ever had. My friend recommended Ziggie & Mad Dog's because she had recently visited and I was NOT disappointed! We tried several appetizers and I had the Filet Medallions with a Poivre sauce and caramelized onions, which was unbelievable. My husband had the 21 oz Cowboy Cut Bone-In Ribeye, which was... More

We had actually tried to go to Chef Michaels and ended up at Ziggy's. Chef Michaels was way booked and since we also heard about this place, that's where we went. Very nice interior. The service was quite good and friendly. The food was expensive. The servings were ample. Nothing particularly blew us away with flavor though. Don't get me... More

Don't be fooled by the casual name! Ziggies steakhouse delivered excellent steaks (we have the ribeye and filet) and the portions were large (definately not overpriced given the quality of the food). Steve R (waiter) was wonderful and very personable, and made the dinner. Dane (the manager and sommelier) was simply fabulous; he made the time to stop, talk about... More

Since the reviews were fairly good for Ziggies, we thought we'd go there for some steaks. We arrived early and had no problem being seated right away. Our waiter was Josh and seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. He never smiled and when I asked a question about the special, he answered very rudely. Throughout the meal we... More

The food was good but though it was a bit pricey. Stone crab appitaziers was $50. Was dressed casual and got casual service.
