“real feel of keys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

local non touristy place on water ; great homemade key lime pie! Some readers state a good sunset but it is really on wrong side of island for that; however, great setting on water with great food and very friendly service. A bit hard to find off main road but well worth it!

“Generous portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Good food with large portion (I had Mahi Mahi). We had new server who was very pleasant but wasn't quite familiar or trained on the menu yet.

“Great place to stop for a bite.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I found this spot almost by accident and it turned out to be a great stop for Sunday lunch. Service was good and so was the food. It was not very expensive either compared to some places in the keys. Be sure to grab an outside table by the water.

“Great food and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

A friend recommended this restaurant so we made a point to stop there. It's a little tricky to find, but well worth it. Outside seating overlooks the marina. Casual ambiance. Lobster reuben was recommended and great. I took off the top of the bread so I had room to eat all the "good stuff." My husband had the lobster burrito which he loved. Friendly and efficient service. Will definitely return if in the area again.
