I was excited to visit this place since there are few things I enjoy more than dining on the water when I am in the Keys... and I am a big NFL fan so it is a bonus! It did not impress, however. For positives,...the setting is really nice with a great waterfront location and atmosphere. My conch fritters were also pretty good. Not the best in the Keys by any means but still above average. The wings were kinda awful though. Very dry, tough meat that the sauce and spice couldn't possibly cover. It almost felt like they re-cooked wings from the night before. Just... meh. Service also wasn't great. Male staff were focused on the one female bartender's love life and they were missing customer needs. It seemed to be a joke taken in stride by her but still unprofessional. Even with a tiny crowd you had to make an effort to get attention to order food or get a drink refill. It felt like the customers were in the way of their fun. Nobody ever checked on the meal or how our food was so giving in person feedback wasn't even an option. They were also cleaning out an outdoor drain with a shop vac right next to the bar and dining area... which is somewhat unappealing while eating a meal. Maybe do that outside of dining hours? Like any time before you open at 11am? So... not completely awful... but not great and I will not be going back since there are so many better waterfront options nearby.More

Great food- excellent service from BRETT who offered delicious appetizers & was super friendly. We enjoyed shrimp bisque fries, BBQ pork nachos, conch fritters, ultimate seafood & a wedge salad. Signature drink recommendations + key lime pie= Muwah! Perfection. We will never forget Jimmy Johnson’s...BIG CHILL experience. YummmMore

A great choice for lunch on the water, it was walking distance from the hotel we stayed at. The food and drinks were superb, and the staff were nice. They had a live band playing which added a nice touch to the ambiance.

There are two guys named Christian and Andres that stand out significantly. They are so welcoming and there are also very helpful. I like to give these guys a positive review because of their Florida Keys hospitality. And all the places in the keys I...come here because of these guys that take care of the customers and they also have a very friendly demeanor.. they welcome my family, and they welcome my peers with grace and positive energies. These guys should be promoted up the hierarchy because of their abilities to relate to people and also bring smiles to one’s day. we had more people in the world. We definitely live in a better place, knowing that these guys are the definition of the sun shine state!!!!!More

The food was very good and so was the view. Our server Rachel was great and we really enjoyed the coconut shrimp. We were very happy and impressed with our experience.

Highly disappointed by the service at Big Chill. This is not the first time we’ve had terrible service lately as we are locals. Our server started out great by complementing my daughter and I, taking our drink order, serving our drinks, and taking our appetizer...order. It all went downhill once our appetizer was delivered to the table by a food runner. Our server never came back to see if the food looked ok or if we needed anything. We had a dozen oysters and I wanted more lemon. We ended up eating them without the lemon since she didn’t come back to the table. She returned eventually to take our meal orders. Again the food was delivered by a food runner and she never checked on us again. My fiancé wanted mayonnaise for his burger. We had to ask a different server to help us since she wasn’t around. Go figure. After we ate and were waiting on our check. She was behind the bar socializing with other servers in a highly unprofessional manner. She finally delivers our check. And we already knew gratuity was included on the check because we had to address the Manager before due to terrible service and not wanting to pay the 18% as it wasn’t deserved. We left the gratuity on anyways even though she didn’t do her job and didn’t deserve the tip. Clearly the servers at Big Chill need to be trained on professionalism and what being a server really means. Just because you offer a relaxed atmosphere for your guest doesn’t mean the employees don’t need to do their jobs. Several of the servers were sitting at tables socializing with guest. Just overall disappointing… again.More

Had a wonderful night out with my husband and brother. The bartender (sorry forgot his name) was always available for another drink or food order. We watched the sunset while listening to live music and then got to watch live entertainment after dusk. Will gladly...go back next time we got to Key Largo!More
