Good time

Great food,drink and atmosphere! We eat here every time we come to the Keys! They have the best Honey Bisquits that they make here and are known for! Keep them coming, I love them. If you can't get a close parking space, ask the guys in the golf cart to pick u up when u park, they are great.

although the location isn't great, the ambiance and friendliness makes very much up for it. I finally had Lionfish and boy it was good ! They made a really nice sushi presentation of it. Our son (4 year old prince charming) was really taken care of by the waitress and he simply adored it. Very fine dining at reasonable prices.

Awesome drinks and great seafood with waitress, Stormy! This was a "local" recommendation for dinner on our last night. It's a hidden gem and highly recommended by the locals! Only wish we had found it sooner. Also, be sure and stick your head out on the dock and see if the manatee and her baby are there! We thought the... More

We were very pleased with our food! It was delicious! I would highly recommend. Laid back atmosphere, higher end cuisine! It's a little more expensive than it looks, but the food delivers!

Ate here with some locals and was not disappointed. Lively atmosphere with great service and awesome daily specials. The sushi is the best in the area. I would also recommend the Lion Fish served "Wreck" style. Everything is fresh, the owner had his boat in the water behind the place and goes out everyday. Going back often.

The food and service is fantastic! It has the feel of a comfortable hole-in-the-wall off of the main path, recommended by our realtor. We were driven from our car in a large golf cart (even though it isn't far at all) - which we find humorous. We had our choice of three dining areas. One is the music/bar area with... More

A friend of mine recommended this restaurant to me and warned me about the location. The restaurant is located where you have to drive through an old sketchy trailer park area (same parking for the restaurant Burdines). They call it "waterfront" but I didn't SEE any water or have a water view. It was an extremely casual atmosphere and we... More

We took our fish we had caught that day and they happily cooked it 4 different ways. Wait staff was cheerful and knew about what was available at this restaurant. They also shuttled us from parking to restaurant.

I thought the food was excellent but it took so long for it to be prepared. They blamed it on my appetizer which was the Yakazee. It was essential beef tartare with an Asian flare. It wasn't large or elaborate but it was delicious. My family did not share my enthusiasm for the food (they are not seafood fans) but... More

Food was delicious start to finish. Honey buns are delicious!! Make a reservation on the weekend - online reservations available. Great cocktails and decent beer selection, at least 30. Service was great and its a fun place with live music in the outside seating area. Don't let the trailer park on the way in fool you! Go!
