We ate here several times at Happy Hour. The prices were wonderful and the selection was what we were looking for.

My friends had recommended this place for happy hour, so I decided to give it a try. We were sat at a table & given the menus. I looked but could not find anything that stated what was on the happy hour menu. Once the waitress came over she explained that all of their appetizers were half & a few... More

We didn't go to the fancier restaurant that is attached to the bar and grill. We went for happy hour (4 to 6:30) at about 5pm at the bar and grill portion. Fifteen minute wait but plenty to see on boardwalk to keep us entertained. For us the big draw was 50% off appetizers (small plates) and beer, wine and... More

Stopped in twice for happy hour. Cold drinks frendly service, although it can be hit and miss at times, but hey, island time right! Food was very good.

We had reservations for our anniversary while visiting Key West. Between the website for the restaurant and the amazing photos, we were very excited. I have to say I was highly disappointed. While the view is indeed amazing, the restaurant itself was less than stellar. Neither my husband nor myself are 'wine' people, so I asked for a ginger ale... More

This restaurant is delicious! I had the prime rib and my husband had the ribeye, both were cooked perfectly. The service was great, extremely attentive and informative. Will definitely return on out next visit to Key West!

We had been recommended to go here so we did..... it did not disappoint. It's a lovely room and we got a window table overlooking the marina. Nice meet and greet and lovely relaxed service with that sense of nothing was too much trouble. Steaks amazing, seafood superb! Lovely wine list and menu all well priced. Well worth a try.... More

"Best cooked steak I have ever had" said my son, who is notoriously difficult to please. However, not everyone chose steak and the whole family enjoyed their meals. We were seated next to an already very noisy table when the restaurant was quite empty - simply because there were two long tables already set up close together (we were a... More

My fiance and i headed to the marina for some dinner last night. The busyness of the resturant and the view of the water entised us in. Well, it went beyond our expectations - the decor and vibe was really cool, the staff were very pleasant and the food, well, wow - generous portions and so delicious! Richard ordered the... More

Arrived late into town and stumbled on the Commodore as we walked along the waterfront. We were dressed for work and decided to sit upstairs. The upstairs is more formal and has great air conditioning.... The food was excellent. Service was good if not a little slow, but we were involved in conversation so it was not an issue. The...
