We had a party of 8 and had a wonderful meal here. The service was good, the view amazing too. They have a nice wine list also. We had steak and seafood and all was wonderful! Made my birthday meal so special.

Went based on suggestion of local couple, menu and prices. We were all in agreement that this was the best dining and bar experience so far in Key West. Went for happy hour and had top notch mojitos and rum drinks. The small plates which were generous were all excellent. The calamari were the best in years: very lightly battered... More

The half pound of peel and eat shrimp was amazing with the large shrimp required two bites to eat! They have a magnificent lamb chops (2) cooked to perfection, fried Calimari, Coconut Shrimp and Skirt Steak. A very nice... More

After having a drink in the way busy bar at the bottom of the stairs, we went upstairs to a much quieter table by the window. The food and the service were both excellent. Very enjoyable meal.

Mom, dad, and two teens visited Upscale dining, but still could be dressy casual. Server was very good. Steaks were good, although one was a little over cooked but not enough to complain. Salads were big portion and the sauces were good. Pricey, but we had a pretty view overlooking the marina. Away from the hustle and bustle of Duval... More

We were looking for something different today and we saw Commodore's Boat House. The menu looked perfect for a casual, low key night. The food was very tasty (including the kids' food). The beer was cold! The service was quick and friendly and the view was beautiful. We would definitely eat here again.

I I took my new husband to The Commodore for his birthday and was really impressed. The restaurant is lovely. The food was fantastic and when I got the bill I couldn't believe how affordable it was. Dinner for... More

Everything about this restaurant was top notch! I had the shrimp dinner and my friend had the Delmonico steak, and we shared a salad. Both of our dinners were excellent. My friend was going to order the prime rib but at the waiters suggestion tried the delmonico instead and was happy she did. He also suggested that we share a... More

We went 7 People for a late dinner, and what we got was absolutly outstanding. Whether it was Tuna, Scampi, Lobster or Steaks, the preparation was perfect. Their selection of Wine to accompany The Seafood or Steaks matches perfectly. Five Stars and a recommandation for everybody to try it. When in Key West, we will be back.
