“It's a must if you're in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We spent 5 nights in Key West earlier this year and came here twice for breakfast. Be prepared for a wait, but it's worth it. Very Key Westish, with chickens wandering around. I loved their shrimp and grits. Next time I'm in Key West, I will definitely come back.

“THE unmissable, unique restaurant in Key West - you must go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

The evening menu is really interesting, brunch/breakfast is great but what makes this place special and unique is the outdoor, rustic setting. Dine on rickety tables, outdoors, under the trees listening to live blues. With great food and good cocktails.

We went for sunday brunch. We got there at 10.40 and had to wait for over an hour. This is fine as there was live music and lots of good booze to help pass the time.

I had 'Rooster Special' which is a combo plate of eggs, bacon, and I recommend having it with blueberry pancakes - they were awesome.

This is 100% Key West - laid back but with excellent service and food.

If you go to one restaurant during your Key West visit - make it here.

I write Key West's biggest blog for visitors, like me, to Key West. Search Google for: Key West Lookout. See more pics of Blue Heaven and a list of my favorite restaurants.

“Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We had an excellent breakfast. The service was very quick and friendly.
The outside sitting is very nicely decorated in a tropical way.

“Fantastic Meal & Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

My wife and I just returned from our annual Anniversary trip to Key West where we were married. We always reserve one night at Blue Heaven because it is such a pleasure. We both enjoyed a salad that featured pear and goat cheese and shared some Snow Crab Claws. She had a Pork Tenderloin feature and I had the Florida Lobster feature. Everything was superbly cooked and the service was spot on. We had a great table close by the evening's entertainment, a trio that were perfect for the mood and added to the general ambiance. The bartender who served us a drink prior to us being led to our table had a great sense of humor!

If you are heading to Key West, you must plan one meal here. You won't be disappointed!

“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.
