This location is great. They are close to the docks were you have a birds eye view of all the boats in the harbor and a nice view of the inlet. All the fish dishes that we ordered came out hot and moist. The fries were crisp and not greasy. The specialty drinks were tasty and the overall experience was... More

Just stayed a couple of nights while game fishing nearby. The room was clean, cool and quiet. The bed and pillows were comfy. Food was good and the bar was convenient. No hassles, reasonably priced and accessible to nearby attractions. A good place to crash while playing in the upper keys.

Our first stay in the Keys. Hand-muddled margaritas and ice-cold O'Doul's, just right. Friendly local staff, a good Caesar with Cajun chicken and a slice of Key Lime Pie that I won't soon forget: tart & tangy with a lime drizzle that I could drink from the bottle! So good. Def will return.

We're dog people so good service for our dogs impresses us. Our server was openly pleased to see our dogs and served their ice water immediately. Through the rest of our visit, he was fast and friendly; assuring that we were happy and well-served - without the annoying frequency of table visits a lot of servers fall prey to. The... More

Stopped in to check it out. Thanks Jared for the great service and his mom for her singing. We always like the location on the water by the bridge
