Waiters in white shirts and ties, but it is come as you are, but now bathing suits and such... read more

It took us almost two years to find this gem. North or south, look for the Rainbow. Rainbow Bend Resort. That is the name that catches your eye. You will see cars parked in the front. That is the staff, they save the parking for the patrons. Reservations are a must, the food is prepared wonderful, and the service is... More

White linen, culinary schooled presentation of beautifully prepared dishes-aged beef' fresh seafood, lamb and great soups. Entrees $20-52 include house Caesar salad as well as starch and great veggies. Strawberries flambe leads dessert list. If seated 4:30 to 5:15 the Sunset menu provides smaller portions of many menu items for under $20. That's the best value in the Keys. Good... More

You feel like you were in the Key's in the 50's or 60's. Old school from décor, to food, to music. We really enjoyed ourselves but don't come if looking for anything minimalist or trend setting. We are in our low 60's and majority of customers were. My wife saw a few young couples dinning. White table cloths and a... More

My wife and I ditched the kids one night while on vacation and treated ourselves to a dinner here. The setting overlooking the beach was beautiful. The service of the staff was excellent, both of our meals were very delicious (I had the duck and she had the surf n turf). We will definitely eat here again the next time... More

What a great little find. Don't be put off by the restaurant being located above the office of a motel! Climb those stairs! Wonderful menu, wonderful service. Owner came over several times to be sure we were happy. Only serve beer and wine no cocktails. 5 stars!

Upstairs at twilight are the most beautiful water views. If you go before six, there is an early bird special that is an excellent value. the cost about about... More
