This was a very poor experience. We managed to order a drink each before walking out due to intransigence on part of staff and kitchen. We simply tried to order a menu listed fish with simple salad, and I was intending to order a steak but they absolutely insisted that they would only serve as per the menu which included... More

In the review it is stated that there was an attempt to order a fish entree along with a salad. It was to our understanding that you requested to substitute a side of rice on the grilled Captains choice entree with one of our home made specialty salads. Being an a la carte menu, you may purchase any item we... More

One of the finer restaurants in the area, you can get some nicer and classier surf and turf options here. Since it is one of the few restaurants that does not boast of a waterfront location, they make up for it with an inviting interior, well executed menu, and friendly staff.

The food was excellent. I was with five others and we all had something different. Presentation of dishes was very nice. Our waitress was very attentive. Prices were a bit high.

OK, jiggy is out of date and usually refers to dancing but you get my drift. We had a number of meals on Islamorada and this was definitely the best despite the waiter (the one with a beard) that insisted on calling my wife "my dear" in an aloof manner, which annoyed her (he's about 35 and she's 67!). But,... More

My husband & I were down for the weekend in celebration of his birthday and decided to veer off our usual Islamorada dinner path & try Ziggie & Mad Dog's. After making our res, we came early to have a cocktail at the bar & were not disappointed by Bob's catching laughter or chilled lychee martinis! After enjoying our drinks,... More

This restaurant was recommended by two different friends, so we made sure to visit while staying in Key Largo. It was only a 30 minute drive to Islamorada. The exterior was very casual, so very deceiving of the upscale atmosphere on the interior. Tables are all covered in white tablecloths and service was excellent! We had the Delmonico, the strip...

No, I haven't been to every restaurant in Islamorada but on a recent visit after going to a few others and then going to Ziggy's we cancelled our other dinner reservations and went back to ZIggy's. Great service, excellent staff from attutude to presentation to courtesy. The food was terrific. The bone in rib eye was as good a steak... More
