The upper deck eating location is very nice and you have to get there early if it's theater night. We stopped in for dinner before going to the theater. The menu selections are pretty good and include seafood, tacos, salads, sandwiches, and steak. We enjoyed...More

We spend quite a bit of time in Key West and typically enjoy at least one meal at the Rooftop. It is very warm-feeling, the ambiance is comfortable but elegant. We typically sit at the bar and have drinks and appetizers but the dinners are...More

Annie and Missy provided the warmest welcome to Key West. Casual charm, delicious entrees. Best Mahi I have ever had. Tranquil respite in the heart of Key West night time commotion.

Don't let the daytime view from the street fool you. During the day it doesn't look like anything special to be on the 2nd story. At night it has plenty of white string lights, linens on the table and plenty of space between tables. My...More
