I found this restaurant by accident..it's off the Overseas Highway on the Atlantic side but if your heading south to Key West you'll have to do a small U turn to get there. They do have a sign but it's off the main Highway and for the first few times I went there I really had to keep my eyes... More

Our family of four stopped in late on a Thursday night for dinner. Sat outside until the kids complained about everything and anything they could (guess they were hungry and didn't know it). LOL The inside was full but our server let us move inside and sit at 2 small tables. The happiness begins. We ordered the Tuna Nachos.....OMG these... More

We had been to this place several years before our most recent visit. I didn't recognize it at first because we came by boat this time. Eat indoors or out. We all had small plates or appetizers . My salad with shrimp was ok. The shrimp was grilled but they were tiny. Someone had clams in garlic sauce. The best... More

I wish I would have found this place earlier in the trip! Great fish, daily caught fresh. Prices are reasonable and the service was superb. Now one of my favorite spots. I will be back! Get the grouper ready!

We loved the fish tacos. We tried the blackened shrimp, lobster and mahi-mahi tacos. All were excellent. I would order a side of fries to share for every three orders of tacos. Our waitress was Lela J and she was excellent. Key lime pie was good but the fried banana cheesecake was truly awesome! The bathrooms share a sink. It... More

This is just a normal laid back "islandy" bar with a good menu. But you must go there and have tuna nachos if you like sushi. We went 3 times to have the tuna nachos while we were in Islamorada and I am a food snob. Loved them! Fabulous!

Good menu, prices varied from reasonable to pricey. Food was ok. Service was slow, but very disappointed to get an $8 mango diaquiri served in a miller lite beer glass.

Sorry not much of a review on your part. What does not what you expected mean. People come to the keys for a laid back atmosphere. If that is what you consider slow then we will keep it. So our menu is great since it has something for everyone. Yes an $8 drink is served in a very large glass.... More

We stopped here on the way to Ft Lauderdale from Key West. What a gem! Great lunch. We had fish tacos. The location was nice. On a canal. And the best part was the live music by Kenny Channel! We liked him so much we bought a CD and listened to it the rest of the way back. Traffic was... More

Stopped in for an early dinner. Not real hungry, or least that's what we thought. Started with the calamari. I ended up eating most it myself. The kids don't like the tentacles and it was mostly tentacles. This is something we have run into at most of the restaurants in the Keys? The mahi sandwich was great as was the... More
