We stopped by here on our walk along the harbor and wow, I am so glad we did. The food we had was incredible. We had the mussels Diablo and crab dip and it was some of the best food we ate on our trip....Left me wishing we hadn’t already had dinner somewhere else and wanting more room to try more dishes! The biggest reason for writing this is bartender MJ. My husband and I both agreed she was the BEST bartender we encountered during our stay. We met many wait staff and bartenders and MJ was by far the best of all of them so she deserves some cred! She was so incredibly friendly and attentive. As past bartenders ourselves, we appreciate someone who engages with the customers like she did! Thanks MJ!More

You would think that a place which has recently been remodeled and a location right below the A&B Lobster restaurant and to add right on the water would provide a great experience, but oops it did not ! So when we walked in at 3/30...pm for our reservations the place was practically empty , that should have been the warning sign, then the AC was not working it was hotter inside than outdoors so they opened the door to permit house to get fresh Air! after at least 15 -20 minutes a server who introduced herself as Diane from Russia came over with water , them left she came back like 5-10 minutes agin and we ordered drinks , she had a terrible personality and her actions reflected that she really did t care ! So we finally received our drinks and this was the worst margarita I have ever tasted in my life and sent it back , she seemed disturbed by this. The food order was placed and it doesn’t get better , oh before I forget the place in general did not seem clean at all , to add whatever rag they used to wipe down left a bad dirty order , I should have just left after the drink arrived ! Let me stop here , my only recommendation would be to not to dine here at all , so many places to go to , I made a big mistake , the owners and upper management need to get involved and literally clean house , the whole staff seem out of sync , no server helps they other , they should work as a team , most were just wondering about since they had no customers anyway don’t make the same mistake I made select somewhere else !! I hope the ownership reads this review because it’s the honest truth , they have a problem !!More

We finished a morning snorkel trip and we’re looking for something to eat. The salesperson in the gift shop is clearly a foodie and gave several recommendations. They should probably be a concierge. We decided to try Alonzo’s since it was close. It did not...disappoint. Atmosphere: 8 or 9 It is a great location on the water. Walkable from where we caught the boat for snorkeling Tucked back at the end of the street. I am not sure we would have stumbled upon it without the recommendation. It would be nice to sit outside, but thankful to sit in the A/C and cool off. There was no live music when we were there. But I loved the music being played. It was all 80s hits. Service: 10 Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. My sister has to eat gluten free. The server made recommendations and suggestions for modifications. Food and Drink: 10 We had a couple of drinks on the way back from snorkeling so I did not have a drink at Alonzo’s. We shared the coconut shrimp. It had a nice crispy texture. It is served with Sweet chili sauce. I’d rather have a pineapple or mango sauce. I had the tuna nachos. They were hands down the best dish I had on vacation. Fried wontons topped with seaweed salad, tuna, sriracha aioli and wasabi. I asked for the wasabi on the side. I loved this dish so much that I tried ordering a version of it at other restaurants, but no one competes. The sriracha aioli and wasabi make the dish. Guest 2 had the coconut grouper which looked good. It was also their birthday. So we got a slice of Key Lime Pie. Thanks for the share forks. I really liked the fruit drizzle on it. Guest 3 had lobster Mac and Cheese. The Mac and cheese was nice and creamy. The lobster was a tail on the plate. I think my friend would have preferred it to already be mixed in. Guest 4 had a tuna poke bowl which was similar to the nachos but had rice and cucumber as well. Guest 5 has Celiac. (Gluten Free). They really wanted grouper but can’t do the fried coconut breading. The kitchen accommodated the dietary restrictions by making blackened grouper. Thank you for going out of the way to accommodate. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the Keys.More

My hubby loved the oysters. He tried one of each and couldn't decide on a favorite. I had the Ahi Tuna Bowl and it was so delicious. Lots of times you will find the stringy parts in the tuna but this was top grade with...only deliciousness. I would definitely order it again and again. Wels was our bartender and server and she was delightful. Made delicious drinks and had us all smiley the whole time we were there. Good job, Wels. Thank you for a great visit.More

Stopped in for happy hour and some apps! They have great happy hour deals $4 beer and wines and cocktail deals. The pretzel bites and fish bites were so good! We had a great bartender I wish I would have gotten her name. This was...out first night in Key West and we were looking for recommendations. She had a full bar but also took time to write down and explain many places to us! Can't wait to return.More

Our party of 6 came here for an early dinner and literally ordered almost every happy hour appetizer they had! It was a perfect way to try different things. Their happy hour menu has so many great things on it we just couldn’t help ourselves....Peel & eat shrimp, conch fritters, bang bang shrimp tacos, buffalo shrimp, mussels diablo, fish dip, calamari, Tex mex rolls, oysters, beer steamed clams, and a couple of drinks to wash it all down. It was delicious. Service was great.More

We made a reservation, showed up a bit early and were seated immediately at a beautiful table on the dock. Our server - Allie - was there immediately and drinks and food flowed perfectly. Four dozen oysters and a bucket of clams later, we were...done and Ally even brought us "to-go" cups so we could stroll the boardwalk with the remainder of our drinks. Great food and service both!More

Food was good, beer was expensive and very limited. They advertise Yuengling but didn't have it. Otherwise it's Bud products. Pretty bad. Atmosphere was nice, though our table was a little to one side vs overlooking the water

We came here to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We were not disappointed. We were welcomed and promptly seated even though we were half an hour before our reservation. Service was excellent. The manager even came over to offer congratulations. We had a Calamari appetizer,...the Fried Grouper and the Snapper pile. All were outstanding. The Anniversary Key Lime Pie was the perfect ending to a great meal. It was a bit pricy at $110, but worth the price to celebrate with the love of my life.More

After hours of walking around in the heat, beer on the waterfront patio hit the spot. Really enjoyed the very fresh blackened snapper sandwich.

We stopped at Alonzo's on our way to catch the Key West Express headed back home, and it did not disappoint! We had a reservation but decided to sit at the bar instead. Rick was our bartender, and he was attentive and engaging! The views...were great, and the breeze made sitting close to the open doors/windows very pleasant. We ordered about 18 oysters from different regions as well as the fish dip and everything was so fresh! Our only hiccup was the girl at the hostess stand did not understand that we made a reservation through Open Table so we could redeem the points. She was very confused that we wanted to sit at the bar instead, so we just let it go in the moment. Overall, we would highly recommend and would go again!More
