“Great food in an islands atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Blue Heaven is a favorite dinner spot for our Key West vacations. Their fish entrees are fresh and delicious. Atmosphere is relaxed and fun. The restaurant can be very crowded and they do not take dinner reservations.

“Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Just visited Key West and dined here. Of all the recommendations to dine in Key West this was tops. Outside dining, with great service and food to die for. Everyone in my party was pleased with the selection and the service. I had the grouper and it wa excellent, the Key Lime Pie they say is world reknown, check.

“It wasn't what I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I had some pretty high expectations of this place, as everyone raves about it, and it has been featured on a slew of Food Network shows, etc. It was a little pricey, and their system for serving lunch and breakfast was a little foreign to us. As long as you get your name on the list for breakfast by 11 am you will be guaranteed a seat. Which means that lunch doesn't start until the breakfast crowd is done. We stopped in at 12:15 and wanted lunch, they made us wait until about 1pm before the breakfast crowd was done, which only allowed us to drink $40 worth of cocktails. $90 for lunch for two, and later that day we ate dinner for $28. A little backwards, but the ambiance and the roosters walking around the yard was pretty neat.

“Unique atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Dining outside listening to the live guitar music was relaxing. The perfectly seasoned pork tenderloin was crispy on the outside and fork tender. Enjoyed the visual feast as well with all the artistic touches.

“Great breakfast... With roosters:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Everything was so delicious! We had to wait 30 minutes for a table, but it was so worth it. The banana bread, granola, and grits were all FANTASTIC!
