We went here on the recommendation of our hotel, and we were not disappointed. The place was pretty busy and the inside decor was a bit of a letdown. But luckily, the only seats available were outside, which was actually lovely. The staff were friendly and professional and easily able to offer advice about the menu. We shared the sampler... More

This is a seafood lovers paradise! So many options on the menu it was hard to make a final selection. We started with the Conch ceviche..loved how thinly cut the conch was and the hint of spice and freshness of ingredients served with tortilla chips. For the main course I had the grouper in a tomato caper sauce that was... More

My wife and I recently found our way here and absolutely loved the food. We started with the conch ceviche which was outstanding. There was enough heat for our liking and the veggies were quite crisp. The seafood was fresh and tasty. I had the lobster special which was a lobster tail tossed in breadcrumbs and grilled. Too often places... More

Mainly beer, a little wine and lots of common dishes with a local touch. It was clean inside and looked clean the outdoor dining area. We're use to smoking at outdoor settings so we chose to dine inside. Food was fairly priced and well prepared.

Tried this place for lunch and was surprised. They had Maine lobster corn bisque, which was very good. Then the Key lime shrimp that was breaded and baked, not fried with a good sized portion. A very good lunch break.

We stopped here due to reviews, but when asked about what was recommended by the server we were given plenty of options, but nothing was really wow. Can't say it's not a stop for anyone wanting chicken wings, but in the keys I nor many others want to have chicken as their meal. Next time I take the advice of... More

We stopped on our way to Key West for lunch. I had a fish sandwich that was excellent. My wife enjoyed her burger. It looked to me like this was a place the local folks frequented. Outdoor seating is available but it was too hot on the day we were there to take advantage of.
