I arrived right behind a 12 top so I thought I'd be forgotten for the rest of the night. I was passed around the servers and Jessica ended up taking excellent care of me. Sautéed crab claws were interesting and a treat. The conch chowder never came (well have to see if it's on the check. I couldn't eat it... More

Nice restaurant with a view. More upscale atmosphere than several surrounding restaurants. Staff was friendly. Food is pricey, but good. I enjoyed the flat bread pizza as well as the Hurricane Shrimp.

BIMINI BEACH BAR under the restaurant but owned by Hemingway's certainly moved me to comment here! I enjoyed $1 fish tacos on Wednesday night while seated on their open air deck my eyes feasting on the magnificent view of the beach and my ears feasting on some very enjoyable live music! Great service! Relaxed! Fun! THE MOVABLE (MOVING) FEAST can... More

My husband and I went into hemingways tonight for our five year anniversary. We were sat immediately outside right by the water. Our server (Taylor) was amazing. We started with oysters and calamari. Recommended by our waitress. I chose a martini and was pleased. I asked her to recommended the next one and she hit it right on. The Elvis... More

This was a return trip to Hemmingway's. Our first was two years ago, and it was really great. We were wondering if they are trying to be too upscale. They have a beautiful interior, an incredible view. Outside seating as well, and are on the beach. But, keep in mind this is a party beach environment where the focus is... More

We had a party of 13 with two of our family members in wheelchairs. We opted to sit on the back balcony for the scenic view. It was beautiful and overlooking the bay side. After the beautiful sunset we were able to watch a wonderful firework show from a neighboring resort along the bay. Now back to the review... We... More

My husband and I dined at Hemingway's Island Grill in May, 2014. We had been looking forward to this dining experience on our trip. Absolutely love the views from the patio and the décor of the restaurant. Upscale beachy!! The food was spectacular. Service was a little slow, but we expected that with the more leisure feel of the restaurant,... More

My wife and I had one of the best meals here that we have ever had. The filet mignon was the best and then the key lime pie took up a whole plate and was the best. The waiter was the greatest. Highly recommend.

We visited on a tues evening Aug 5th. Were seated right away, got our drinks promptly & ordered. Our appetizer did not come until after our entree's were delivered. When we told the waitress just to take the appetizer's back, she just laughed. No drink refill's, no offer of further assistance. Food was good. Price just a little high for... More

I go to Hemmingways at least 1 or 2 weekends a month. They have a great selection of food. I especially like the $10 menu, with various selections for almost any type of meal preference.
