I have the hog fish special with jasmine rice and a run and butter sauce. Delicious!! We also had the coconut shrimp, I felt it was a bit over fried but the sauce was tangy sweet and had a slight kick to it. Loved it! The conch chowder was okay, made in tomato base. The passion fruit iced tea was... More

We arrived too late to eat dinner downstairs (it was after 10pm) and went to the upstairs bar for the late night menu. Blue Point oysters were excellent and my Margarita was tart and delicious. Devon was our bartender and she told me there was key lime in the Rita. It was perfect. I have eaten here before as it... More

This is casual, gourmet. The staff was uber friendly. The conch appetizer was the best I have ever had. The fish tacos were fabulous. I so look forward to going back.

We had to drive 45 minutes to get to this place, and If it weren't for the long wait and the fact that this place does not take reservations, I would rate it a 5. I had the seafood stew and I LOVED it. My wife had the seared tuna appetizer and said it was ok. We also had the... More

From the fried conch to grilled hogfish to the seafood stew - everything was delicious. The stew was tomato cream based and super meaty. And it was extremely fresh.

This amazing restaurant is on our little Key and is worth the drive from Key West for locals who rarely leave the Rock! It is worth the drive from the rest of us from almost anywhere. You can't go wrong with ANYTHING on the menu but my go to favorites at lunch are the tuna avocado egg rolls and the... More

We stopped here with 7 in our group. It was a recommendation from the leasing company we rented the house from. I could not have been more delighted. The food was a step above what you expect to find in an island restaurant. The portions are HUGE! We ordered a variety of appetizers and meals and they were all delicious.... 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.
