Wonderful place, seated quickly, great service by Cory, amazing food! Authentic wonderful seafood- worth the trip. This is a must to visit! Nightly music upstairs but we did not go to listen. Make sure you ask what a square grouper is... no, it's not a real fish!

I've been there several times as I live about 10 miles away. The service is friendly, professional and the servers are attentive. The food is very good! Definitely going back.

We took a scenic drive up the keys and stopped here for dinner, I've only had amazing experiences. My boyfriend had never been so I was excited to take him.

What a jewel of a resturaunt!!! So clean and welcoming and that's before even eating any of the great food! Getting into the parking off HWY 1 a little tricky but once in, the place is great. Had the seared Tuna app and China Mist ice tea to start and all was wonderful. Fish Tacos - awesome! Will be going... More

Description
Innovative fresh local seafood. House Smoked Fish Dip is phenomenal, a definite "must try"!! Our Conch Chowder and our Key Lime Pie are also something you should not miss. We also have a great Square Grouper Fish Sandwich, 16 oz Grilled Ribeye (Certified Angus Beef!), Salads and lots of small plates to share...Flash Fried Conch with ponzu and wasabi. We are open on Mondays from the last week in December thru April! We close every September from the Sunday AFTER Labor Day and reopen on the Thursday BEFORE Columbus Day Weekend.
