“Fresh food and great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Stopped by restaurant during their Happy Hour and had some of the best appetizers from their menu, including chicken wings, ribs, seafood snacks. The prices were extremely reasonable compared to other places in Key West. The restaurant is on the marina pier and you can easily look at great boats in the marina and is a great place just to watch people

“Greatest view of all of the million dollar yachts !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

The best cold slaw that I have even eaten. I was very disappointed in the Stone Crab. It was very very expensive and the claws were very small. They also tasted as if they had been frozen and not fresh. Their raw oysters were also very expensive - but good. I will return and try the oysters during their 'Happy Hour'.

“Consistently delicious food in an easy breezy atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Every time I come to Fort Lauderdale, the place is a must-stop! Fresh ingredients and delicious food. I like to eat outside and look into the water to see my yacht, okay, someone else's yacht :-)

“Stay over during a downpour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Stopped by for a late lunch with a great seat by the water and sunshine to boot. The food was really good, although a bit pricey for the appetizers. Our server was very friendly and accommodating since toward the end a downpour began and we moved inside to wait it out. Since we had walked from the Sheraton, we decided to sit back down for late dessert after more than a hour of POURING rain. There were some excellent choices for our sweet tooth. I ordered the coconut cheesecake and my husband and daughter ordered the ice cream cookie sandwich to share. The price seemed reasonable, however the server could have let us know that this dessert is more suited to 4 or so people with two cookies about 8" in diameter and what seemed like a half gallon of ice cream. I wouldn't have ordered the other dessert, but we ended up wasting about half of it since it was huge and just too much. Would definitely go back, but be more aware of the portions and price.

“Don't take kids!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Unbelievable! Went there Sunday morning for brunch with family. Hostess would not seat us because TWO YEAR OLD granddaughter was not wearing a top over her two piece bathing suit! Gotta be only restaurant in the world with a dress code for two year olds! We have been going to this place couple of times a month without grand kids, but never again. Change the name to 'Loconuts'.
