Great place!

Went 2x on our week vacation ... perfect sunset! Food was not bad, service was good. A bit pricey, but that's what we expected visiting the keys. Great place.

Great food! Don't miss the coconut shrimp appetizer! It was amazing. Our server, Joe, was attentive and very helpful. Took a peaceful stroll on the dock! Outdoor atmosphere is fun, and a nice breeze comes off the water. We'll make sure to stop again on our future vacations!

The steaks were pretty good and the view was great. The sunset was also amazing but the service was very bad. Our waitress never checked on us after we got our food and never came back for refills. She also forgot to bring back our credit card but we got it. Prices are also very high. Don't spend your time... More

i have been coming here since the early 1970's. It was the foremost dining experience in the upper Keys. What a shame it is now just another "sunset" dive. Limited menu, nothing special. Husband's conch chowder was cold, stone crabs were mushy. No charm what so ever. Didn't order the key lime baked Alaska, didn't want to be any more... More

We were out driving the Keys and saw a billboard for this restaurant. Looked up the Trip Advisor ratings, and that's all we needed to know! Pulled in a little after 7:00 p.m. on a Monday evening during Spring Break time and were concerned that the lot was just about full. The folks at the front desk indicated the wait... More

The food was very good but we felt that $30 an entree would've provided a little more. My husband ate some of my food after he ate his. I ordered appetizers, the Lobster pizza and rice and beans. Both were great but I felt $25 for apps were expensive. For two adults and a five year old, we spent $120.... More

We stopped here at opening (11am). Sat on the swing tables by the water. Our waiter was outstanding and very helpful explaining the options. We had the coconut shrimp with mango chutney, crab cake appetizer, house salad (huge and great variety of greens, etc), hogfish with pistachios, cuban sandwich - all were beautifully prepared and very, very good. Their mac... More

Very nice outdoor dining for lunch or dinner by land or by sea.the sesame tuna appetizer is outrageous and they prepare fish lots og good ways besides grilled and blackened. Hog fish is often available and it is delicious. Drinks are often unusual combinations, I Suggest the golden sunset.views are perfectly for sunset and can be very romantic if you... More

had Easter Sunday dinner. It was great. The food was fresh and delicious. We had the best waitress. The sunset was glorious. No one rushed you to leave. Ate in a 'swing'. Went back later in the week. Food was great but the service was awful. Had a waiter who was just too laid back. Just didn't get things right.... More
