Worth the Wait

The food was great. There is inside, outside and beach dining. The first time we went there we couldn't get in it was so busy. We made a reservation for the next night and had no problem getting in. Worth the wait.

A great place to dine, and enjoy music and your favorite beverage! Can't be beat in our opinion! We enjoyed burgers and seafood. And heard some great music from the likes of Billy Davidson...Also a great band, the Jeffrey James Gang! Taking in all of the while being right on the water, the sun setting, the boats coming and going... More

Awesome, laid-back atmosphere, exactly what you expect from a restaurant in the keys. Make sure to get to the restaurant earlier in the evening to get a good table to watch the sunset from, it is seat yourself. :)

Key lime pie was below average. Drinks and food were OK. The live shows were quite entertaining. The staff was very friendly. Big parking lot (or too few vehicles in the place). Wonderful views of the sea and the boat activity.

Great spot for a laid back dinner option while in the Keys! Get there early for a good place to sit - it is seat yourself so go in looking for a table and make sure to grab one if you find one! Food and drinks are well priced - portions are enough to get you stuffed and service is... More

Food great, live music almost every night, and they have resident manatees who obviously like the music. Great night all round!

It's just a fun place for simple pub food. You can sit outside and have a drink with your toes in the sand, an acoustic guitar playing and the sunset too. I'd recommend it as palace to stop for lunch on your way to Key West.

I use this bar when fishing with my friends built on stilts over the water and onto a white sand beach. This time took my family wife 9yr old and 11yr old. The kids just want to go back for the lor e lei..We saw manatees and sharks from our table. Great value on drinks and food. I just wish... More
