Had a good lunch after the conch train. Very convenient. Food fresh and servers friendly. Red snapper was for real. Whole fish. You don't freeze those.

Sat on the patio, had the lobster and crab cakes which were outstanding. The service was great, but the wine selection is very limited

We had an enjoyable lunch here. My wife had the Mahi Slider app and I had the Cuban Mix Sandwich and they were both way more food than we expected. But we ate it all because they were so good and we were on vacation.

I had the crab cakes and my husband had the cheeseburger. The crab cakes were mostly cake and a little crab. too much bread not enough flavor. My husband's burger was equally unimpressive. The waiter apologized for forgetting us (after serving us). The rooster walking around looking for food was the best part. I would not go back.

If you don't eat anywhere else in Key West, definitely eat at Red Fish Blue Fish. Excellent service, great food, many Cuban and island preparations. Portion sizes are huge, so plan on taking some to go. Unique, inspired drink preparations as well.

Stopped here by default after sunset celebration and was happily surprised. Our cioppino was very good and enough for me and my husband to share along with the entree sized house salad. Our friends enjoyed the same. The wait staff was helpful and the service prompt. Key lime pie was OK but not drop dead good. All in all, a... More

Upon our evening arrival to Key West, we asked our driver for his favorite restaurant close to where he was dropping us at Mallory Square. Without hesitation, he recommended Red Fish Blue Fish. We wandered in and looked around... not real busy on a Saturday night. That was a little disconcerting but we polled some of the folks who were... More

The Service was excellent! The food and drinks just average We ordered Raw Oysters as appetizer and they were fresh and good. For the main course we had their Fried Snapper with Rice, Beans and Veggies. The snapper was small and lack some flavor, The beans were watery and minimal, the veggies (yellow squash and zuchinni were ok) We ordered... More

Thanks for your review and giving our service an "Excellent!" rating. You are right, our oysters are some of the freshest and tastiest on the Island. Not sure what happened with your Mojitos? So sorry about that, our guests normally rave about them, especially our Key Lime Mojito. Hopefully we see you again in the future for some more fresh... More

We ate here several times a few years ago and loved it. There were lots of folks who felt likewise and it was quite lively back then. Visited here for dinner this past January and we were just one of two couples there. That should have tipped us off. This place just seems to lack ambience and energy now. Wait... More

Sorry to hear that we were not exciting enough for you, but you are right, Fogarty's is definitely more lively as they are right on Duval Street in the center of all the action. We are a quiet, "Off Duval" restaurant, that most people find very charming as a little break from the craziness of the main strip. In your... More

The menu enticed us a specially my wife who loves hog fish! I must say one thing! The service was 5 star! But a restaurants reputation is always going to be food first! We started with the house Cabernet. For $6 you can't expect much so no comment other than skip the house Cab. I ordered the corn &scrabble chowder.... More

Thank you for giving our service Five Stars! It is also great to hear that you really enjoyed our Shrimp Linguine and were impressed that the shrimp were so big and perfectly cooked. We are sorry to hear that you personally did not like a couple other items, but hey, that is your personal opinion and tastes. We can't please... More
