“A total disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Decent atmosphere, but service and food was not worth the price. First - asked for a recommendation for a rum drink and was presented a rum runner that was obviously from a packaged mix without a stitch of rum in it. Caesar salad not bad, but a total ripoff for the price. Calamari wasn't fresh, and the conch fritters were terrible. Cracked conch was also bad.

We're sorry that you didn't enjoy our restaurant. Our rum-runners are made with the same mix that's used by all the other establishments in town. From the tone of this review, it looks like there was nothing we could have done to serve you better.

“Crab cakes and Key Lime Pie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Delicious! The portions are huge! These were the best crab cakes I've ever had as well as the key lime pie. The kids had a blast checking out the shark hanging on the deck down below ... never fear it was not a real shark but it did have real teeth!

“Okay Service, Pricey, Great Ceviche, Great View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

I stopped here on my way to Key West. The second floor bar area has a great view. Be sure to walk around the cute harbor. I ate at the bar. The female bartender was prompt to ask what I wanted, but other than to take my order, did not address me again.

The menu is pricey. I ordered the ceviche, and it was GREAT for $11.95. Very tasty and lots of fish. The conch chowder was bad - in a red sauce and full of salt. I look one bite and left it.

If you go, be sure to order the ceviche.

“Good Food And Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

What can you say about any establishment located right on the waterfront. The views are going to be great. Here, they were just that with good service and good food. Julie (poor girl) was called in at the last minute and was still a delight to be around even though she was working hard to get set up for the day.
