Awesome place!! We went on a girls trip as a group of 6 and had a wonderful experience!! We ate, laughed and enjoyed wonderful food!! The lobster biscuits, lobster pizza were wonderful!! The best part of the excursion was when Michael, the owner, took us...on a personal tour of the mansion at the end of our visit. We met the chef and he was AMAZING! This is a MUST to visit. Be sure to tell Michael the "sensational 6" teachers recommended this wonderful place!!More

Very kind staff that actually interact with the customers. The owner stopped at our table and chatted with us. The lobster pizza was excellent and the Mojitos were fabulous. The waitress found out that it was my birthday and gave me a piece of key...lime pie and sang happy birthday to me. This place is right along the shoreline. Totally worth the visit to eat here.More

We went here with our family of 5 for lunch. We had the Parmesean Truffle Fries, Coconut Shrimp, Conch Fritters, Lobster Bianca Pizza and the Honey-Butter Lobster Biscuits. Everything was great, but the Honey-Butter Lobster Biscuits may be the best thing I ate in 2022....SO GOOD!More

First off, I don't think you'll find a better view in KW. We literally sat at the waters edge looking out at the boats cruising on the open Atlantic, gorgeous! We were in the area to get a lobster roll but my wife decided she'd...rather have lobster pizza instead. It was hard to argue when I saw the view. Our server had just come to the states from France and she was delightful. The lobster pizza honestly was just ok. They have other options on their menu that I think I would have preferred. The lobster pizza taste like they dumped lobster scampi on top of the pizza... lots of butter and lots of garlic... and I like a lot of garlic. All in all we had a great experience but it's not one of those places I'm dying to go back to.More

Pretty simple - Beautiful location, delicious food and excellent hospitality. Location - Sweeping view from southernmost point. We had dinner and it was dark but the sound of the water was calming and we are staying close by, so confident that it’s perfect for lunch...or a late afternoon snack if you want to be there in the light. Food - Sat down for dinner with my wife and our new vacation friends. We tried the conch fritters, lobster pizza and 4 cheese & prosciutto pizza. All great flavors and good pizza crust. Hospitality/service - We felt very welcome and comfortable. We were greeted by the owner who also operates the Southernmost House hotel. Very engaging and even showed us his incredible collection of historical artifacts in the mansion. This is not a fancy restaurant, but it was relaxing, good quality and seemed to be very “key west” in spirit (we are admittedly new to the area).More

Best meal we had while in Key West. The conch fritters, lobster biscuits, and Caprese sandwiches were amazing! The lobster pizza was out of this world. The margarita was the BEST margarita I’ve had in my whole life, and believe me, I’ve had plenty! Lastly,...the view is perfect. You are literally feet from the ocean. This is definitely a must while in Key West!!More

We were looking for a simple meal, not too expensive and yet filling enough to last us until the evening meal. Found it a this cafe by the water. It is behind a big mansion/hotel so a bit of a challenge to locate but the...crispy pizza and salad was a perfect mealMore

No celery or mustard. It's literally lobster and a nice light white creamy sauce.
