Easy to pass by, but you won't want to.

This restaurant kind of blends into the surroundings & you need to be looking for it. When you walk through the front entrance, it just looks like a little roadside cafe - we asked for the outdoor seating & were taken in back to a nice little oasis (if you were to park in back you would see it... read more

Great Food. Angie, our Server was incredibly sweet and helpful. Music entirely too loud and Host was confusing and disrespectful of servers.

We stopped there for lunch and were quite pleased with the place. It is right on the water. great view of the Florida straights and very good food. For a $1 you can walk out on the pier and fee the Tarpon or just watch the people feed them or watch the pelicans.

Wonderful roadside stop were eating is only one of the many things you can do. It's located within Robbie's Marina and surrounded by t-shirt and souvenir stands. It has a nice view of the water and all the activities generated by the marina. Without reservation at lunch on a Saturday we were seated & served quick & easy. Lots to... More

This review is based solely on service, as we were unable to dine. We arrived at 4:45pm and sat outside to our liking. Nobody came to our table until after easily 10 minutes, and they were not busy. Finally, when someone did acknowledge our presence, we were told that they were switching over the kitchen from lunch service to dinner... More

Dear Tony, Thank you for taking to time to voice the situation regarding service. We deeply apologize that this event happened and are truly sorry. We have spoken with both employees directly to ensure that this situation will never happen again. There seems that there was a miscommunication between servers and order placement time. Although our kitchen does turn around... More

This is our second year visiting the HT and Robbies. We ate there twice, had drinks a third time. First was breakfast, which was delicious, eating on the water under the trees. Hint, find a spot not to be a target of bird droppings. We went by again for drinks, and another time to have our catch cooked from the... More

This was my only visit to a seafood restaurant during my five-day stay in the Keys. It was recommended to me by someone who had dined there the evening prior who was also staying at my hotel, and she thought it was great. For me and my parents, it left something to be desired. When we arrived, we had trouble... More

Dear Kelli, I am sorry you did not enjoy your first experience at a seafood restaurant. We strive to provide the best customer service and are really disappointed that our staff did not make a great lasting impression. We do try to accommodate the needs to sit near the water, although we have a rotating seating chart. Simply ask to... More
