“Good Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We had a very good dining experience. Our server, Josh did a good job and everyone in our party was happy with their food. The Veal Oscar that I ordered was more than I could finish and at less than $25 it was a bargain. It was topped with a giant scoop of fresh crabmeat. Everyone left full and happy! Would return again!

“Not a fan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

I knew that the food was going to be less than average when the menu was the size of a diner menu. My husband and I shared the steamed clams which were good. I had stuffed keys shrimp. The stuffing was supposed to be crab but it was mostly bread, no flavor. My husband and our friend had the steaks which were really good. The wife had shrimp scamp which was served in a bowl with no pasta.

I am sorry that you were not 100% satisfied with your dining experience. Our stuffed shrimp is stuffed with crabmeat stuffing that consists of 80% crabmeat and 20% bread soaked in milk in order to make the stuffing hold together and is pre spiced to satisfy the average persons pallet. We hesitate to overspice any of our dishes because it might offend some people. The shrimp scampi is offered as an entrée with your choice of 2 sides. Included in those sides is pasta amongst other starches and vegetables. I am sorry you expected it to be over pasta but you could have ordered it that way. As far as our vast menu goes, our goal is to satisfy all of our customers by having something for everyone. I can assure you that everything on our menu is top quality and fresh. We hope you will return on your next trip to the keys. Thank you

“Superb Prepare Your Catch Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This restaurant did an excellent job of preparing our fresh caught fish. The Grouper was broiled and the Snapper was batter dipped and fried whole for a moist an delicious presentation. Their recommendations for preparation of each were creative and tasty.

“Hot stone cooking at your table !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Service was excellent! Food was delicious. They offer hot stone cooking. A stone heated to 750 degrees set down at your table with a generous offering of goodies to cook . Very neat. Delicious key lime pie. !

“Outstanding service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This restaurant looks a little dated from the outside, but this was one of our best dining experiences.We brought in our own fish to be prepared and they did an excellent job. The service was friendly and impeccable. Do not miss the key lime pie. Highly recommended.
