We order take out every so often on Saturdays for dinner. The food has always been good and seasoned well. The portions are decent but the prices are a little high for take out. If you can call your order in it will save you time. Placing at the resturant requires a rather long wait as food is cooked to... More

Totally disappointed. The fish dinner we ordered to go was so over-fried that we could not eat it. I telephoned the rest and informed them I was bringing the fish back. When I brought the fish back I decided not to try the fish at all instead I asked for chicken. The chicken was refried dry and greasy. KFC would... More

Frustrated that these resturants have posted hours the continue to not be adhered to. Tourist relay of posted info at location and online. No consistency. Disappointed.

I thought the good was pretty good except the crab cakes as they were burnt and I could taste the oil that needed changing. The dessert was ok nothing to write home about. But the customer service killed it for me. They were rude and unprofessional, which is just as important to me as good food if not more. I... More

I help to run a restaurant in the Key West, and have a website for tourists visiting there as well (www.freshwaterdavekeywest.com) as well. My philosophy towards the critiquing of restaurants is that NOT telling the truth does not help the establishment--you can't fix what you don't know about--and Sweet Potatoes has very little to fix. Co-Owner Chad Cooper was the... More

The chicken, catfish and mac cheese was absolutely delicious, but the peach cobbler was not cooked and the dough tasted bland. I cant believe they cant make good peach cobbler which is such an easy dish. Aslo, the red velvet cupcake was not tasty - they need to change the batter on both items.

Came here unexpectedly and was pleasantly surprised! Big portions that you can share at home. The bbq beef was AMAZING!!!!! The fried fish was fried perfectly...only problem was it needed more seasoning and salt. It was very bland...but other than that every single thing was perfect! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!!!!! The decor is very nice, but the... More
