We went there twice during our stay in Key Largo. Both times for lunch. The place is really nice. The place has lots of fans so it does not get too warm when you sit outside. The food was really good both times. One time...More

Recommended by our snorkel tour crew and weren’t disappointed. Lovely little spot with delicious food...even the fries were awesome. Maybe a smidge pricey for sandwiches but it wouldn’t stop me from going back.

Came here for a quick lunch in between my morning and afternoon dives and it really hit the spot. I got the 1/2 pound of shrimp. The shrimp were clearly fresh and you get a lot for the price. I'd highly recommend coming here.

Not disappointed, not flabbergasted. Food was ok even if not very tasty, portions are quite small for the price. The good point is that staff were friendly and the view on the boats. We were expecting something "more" being in the Keys, but please go...More

The conch has a calamari-like consistency. The fritters are small pieces in fried/battered balls. I didn't have the chowder here but at other places it was tomato based not creamy like clam chowder.
