4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We went twice on our recent trip - bother occasions it was friendly and informal - food was good and served quickly with minimal waiting. Beer was cold too!

Fast and great food. The crabcake and the fish dip were really good. The fish come right up to the back of the place.

“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Visited on a Friday morning and had the Smokehouse breakfast. The tender snd tasty smoked pork was delightful addition to a rather normal every day breakfast. My other guest had the Southern Country breakfast with corned beef hash which was cooked just right.
Our waitress was very attentive and helpful with menu questions. Overall, the service was darn good!

“Ribs are delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

Accommodated 10 people right away. Everyone loved their food! Ribs are really good! Tried the key lime pie. Not the best I have had. Too creamy and could hardly taste the lime. Another person in our party had the carrot cake. Wasn't the best. Not enough flavor. Skip dessert!

Thank you very much! We are very glad to hear that the ribs were delicious. Sorry, we didn't meet your expectations on the desserts. Most of our customers love the deep fried key lime pie :(
We cannot wait to be able to accommodate you again at your next visit!

“What the Keys are all about...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

This Keysie little place has a lot of character. Great BBQ, beef and pork! Delicious seafood. If you have a hard time getting your kids to eat their green beans, order the Fried Green Beans appetizer, im addicted! The menu has something for everyone. The food is consistently good, we are never disappointed. Live music every night, nothing loud, usually a singer with their guitar. Dog friendly! Jenny behind the bar is a ray of sunshine and genuinely happy to serve you a cold one. The bar is beer and wine only, but Jenny is quite good at whipping up (wine based liquor) frozen tropical goodness.
