My cousin, Wendy and I were invited down to the Keys for a wedding. After doing a lot of research I picked Smugglers Cove, not only for the hotel rates, but also because it had a restaurant and bar.

We went there on a Groupon and had the best time! Our waitress, Michelle was awesome and gave us the best service! She suggested the sweet thai mahi fingers with this great tangy sauce and it was fantastic! And be sure to try the Alligator Juice drink! Simply amazing! Fun place!

Before heading out on a boat tour, we stopped for a quick lunch. The tuna poke was delicious. Absolutely fresh and plated beautifully on crispy wonton chips.

Prices were reasonable... More

The bar is cute and always seems to have live music or karaoke. There are 2 sections to the bar so you have ton of space for you and your group. The food was great and fresh!

I was surprised when they offered a Groupon for this place and I mistakenly bought it remembering what great times I've had there when all the locals are there. Not anymore. So we start out for happy hour intending to stay and hear the live music and use our Groupon for dinner but were treated so poorly by the inept... More

We love to stop in Smuggler's Cove for a hamburger. They are usually wonderful, however, today Andy's was overcooked and dry. I had the fish tacos, which were tasty.

Good food! Try the Mahi sticks and conch and shrimp fritters. Great breakfast buffet. Happy hour drink deals are pretty good.
