“Best stopover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Heading down to the Keys from MIami airport, 3 p.m. and not having had lunch, we spotted this restuarant and dropped in on the offchance. It was so good that we programmed the sat nav to take us there for lunch on the day we were driving back to the airport.
It's an unprepossessing little place but the food is superb, freshly prepared. I had Chicken Walnut and Cranberry Salad on the way down; my wife is vegetarian and on the way back she asked if she could have the same with cheese instead of chicken - no problem.
We ate a lot of excellent fish dishes in the Keys, some at much more upmarket-looking places, but the grouper in my fish sandwich on the second visit was totally up to standard. (And much easier on the wallet!)
It's worth a stop anyway to see the amazing aquarium and the .'fantasy wildlife mural'.

“Scrumptious Snapper Omelet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We dined here for breakfast just this week. The service is excellent! The atmosphere is tropical and Keys like. There is huge aquarium in the dining area. There is a lot of information regarding different types of fish that are in the Keys.
The Snapper omelet was mouth-watering delicious. The home made biscuit is to die for. The restaurant is available to the various needs of its clents. Thank you for moving from Philadelphia to the upper Keys so we can enjoy your excellent cuisine and positive, polite, caring service. Thank you!

“THEY DELIVER BREAKFAST ALL DAY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

My daughter had their Philly cheesesteak omelet and HUGE homemade biscuit delivered (yes, they deliver...and breakfast all day) and told me how great it was. So, next time I went in, that's what I had. WOW it is awesome and that biscuit is "melt in your mouth good"
I have had their original Philly cheesesteak sandwich and the bread is so warm with barely a touch of crunch. Bar-b-q wings and crinkle cut sweet potato fries are good too. That's about all I have tried so far.
We met a family for lunch there one Sunday afternoon and their 13 year old daughter said that the cheesesteak was better than one they purchased from a cheesesteak cart in Pennsylvania that was recommended by someone. And then their 8 year old daughter was eating one of the biscuits and told her dad it was better than Cracker Barrel's.
