“Ambience, Ambience, Ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We have been coming here for several years. We love the outdoor funky ambience. You are truly eating with the chickens, which is quite the experience. Our favorite has always been one of the benedicts for breakfast and that is what we ordered today. My husband had the lobster benedict and I had the BLT lobster Benedict. The flavor was great as usual but this time we felt that the lobster was overcooked, making it tough. The service was good as usual and we will return. Hopefully the owner will read this and do a better job when preparing the lobster.

“Unique dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Had Easter breakfast March 31. The atmosphere is an unusual Island feel. Food was delicious and atmosphere, a true Key West experience. Staff, unbelievably friendly and helpful.

“Food and atmosphere great but long waits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This was our second vacation in Key West and we had enjoyed two dinners at the Blue Heaven three years ago so we decided to go for dinner our first night this time. The food and atmosphere were still fantastic but the wait time was so much longer than what was predicted that we were a bit disappointed. This is a very popular restaurant and therefore understand all the juggling needed to keep diners close to schedule, but it would be better to just state a more realistic waiting time so people can plan accordingly. Definitely would go back next time we are in the area since it is a great location with fantastic food.

“What fun, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This restaurant typifies Key West,. Unique property off the main congested areas. Large outdoor dining area and bar as well as a waiting area with ping pong table and assorted playthings for kids. A smaller indoor area is available, as well, but the outdoor experience is lovely. No reservations, but you can call 1/2 hour before and put your name on a list. The wait, however is usually 1 hour on a busy night. There is a band and a fun place to wait. Watch out you don't drink too many Margaritas while waiting, you will be famished by the time you eat. The food is excellent and varied. We were seated inside as we asked for "first available" table, We were glad we did; a rainstorm came through and many diners were huddled ourtside under umbrellas until it passed. Always chancy
