The food has too much imagination, cocktails are good, not a very good vibe. Tried it twice and will not return

Friendly staff, great food. I eat there often and haven't been disappointed yet. Lunch is just as enjoyable.

I've been here 3 times, all for group affairs. The wait staff did a good job, considering the number of people attending. The food is excellent, but a little pricey.

Second visit to Hemingway's. The first was for Sunday brunch. Bottomless mimosas served by our bartender Chloe at the was awesome. This visit was lunch with a friend. The seafood was perfect and our server, Shawn was the best! Amazing service. Great food and a relaxing atmosphere.

Compared to the other restaurants at the beach this has a nicer more upscale feel. Service was average, salad order forgotten and not served until asked for when entry arrived. Order cooked wrong, manager came to table but not trained well on how to handle. Wouldn't return.

Really good food. I bit pricey, but in this case you get what you pay for. Great location with a nice porch and water view. You can actually dress up and not feel out of place. Or go in jeans and a sweater and be fine.

We had the lobster bisque and shrimp kabobs. Both were excellent. We had the hamburger which was awesome. We also had the grilled fish sandwich and salmon. Everything we had was excellent. We will definitely visit hemingways again.

The house special of Mahi-Mahi is the best tasting fish I've ever had! The preparation and sauce is perfect! The service is great and the view is beautiful. I also recommend their award winning key lime pie. I don't even like key lime pie but loved their pie.
