“delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

On our recent trip to Key West, Florida we returned, twice, to one of our favorite breakfast spots. Blue Heaven has live music, great Key West atmosphere, and delicious food. We especially like the banana pecan pancakes, and the lobster eggs benedict. The service was very good, and the roosters added to our entertainment.

“Fast, good food good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Our wait was shorter than expected - so we grabbed drinks at the bar and were brought to our table. Cool environment with chicken and roosters squawking around... our breakfast was good, not exceptional for the $40 or so it cost including tip. Had banana pancakes and cheesy scrambled eggs - cheese wasn't melted in the eggs. My BF got the rooster plate - he was eh on the pancakes also had fresh squeezed OJ. Not sure I would rush back again.

“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.
