“Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I came here for lunch on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. We got here around 2:00 so the lunch rush was gone. It was very peaceful with a single guy playing some island cover tunes. The view is spectacular. Service was very good. Food was OK; nothing special. You definitely come here for the atmosphere and to have a cocktail. A must while visiting Islamorada!

“Nice location but staff needs to bolstered”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

The location of this place is awesome. The seating is outside with tiki torches and toes in the sand. That said, the food was ok but the waitstaff horrible. We actually had out waiter walk away from us not once but twice while we were asking about menu items. The GM was somewhat helpful but did not seem to be someone with a strong restaurant background. Still worth it for the atmosphere.

“Stunning sunset venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

We picked the perfect day - fluffy clouds all around - and went here for the spectacle. 20 minutes of pure theater!

Moving on to the food and drink - we had "tapas" and some wine/beer, after the show. Europeans need to forget all they thought they knew about tapas (little plates of food) here - these were huge and 2 were quite sufficient - not 4 or 6 as in Spain! My conch was excellent and so were the crab cakes and the wine and several Coronas as well.

You sit a bare tables on the "beach" (artificial), but the location makes up for that and if you pick the right sunset, it's stunning.

“Great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We had lunch here and we were seated on the beach with a fabulous view. The chips and salsa was the best! So yummy. I had a fish sandwich and I had a choice between 2 different fish, I asked the server his recommendation, went with it, and it wasn't the greatest. But the chips and salsa more than made up for it! Service was good, prices were what we expected.

“Wonderful and romanitic place....prices in-line for what you get.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I have read reviews of this place and the main complaint is price. If you are looking for $1.00 beer and half price food forget it. This place is romantic, the beach extraordinary and the food was excellent. We drove down from Ft. Lauderdale for the day and were thoroughly delighted that we had invested the time and effort. The place is clean, the washrooms spotless. Service was outstanding and the entertainment was fabulous. The guitarist name is Bolivar. Beautiful voice and guitar playing. It really set the mood. We had the Boston Pumpkin Ale, Mussels, grouper fritters and conch chowder...WOW! The bill was reasonable and we felt it was good value. We felt we got what we paid for so like we said, if you are looking for cheap don't stop here. There is a Denny's up the road somewhere. The place is a postcard with the white sand beaches, colourful umbrellas and mulit-coloured chairs and azure coloured water. Will be be back? You bet you...call this "For Lovers Only".
