The food and scenery were amazing. Beautiful views. The server was very knowledgeable with great personality, however, he seemed to forget about us multiple times. In his defense, they were very busy. But it's not cool to have to ask two separate times to remind for drink refills. And when we went to cash out, he took my card and... More

After we paddle boarded at their beach, we had drinks with a beautiful view of the bay. We tried the lobster guacamole and it was awesome. This is a great chill spot! Nice adventure.

I had the Islamorada Mahi Sandwich with fries crispy and it was excellent; however, the menu is not extensive and it is pricey. Again my sandwich was great but the others in my party were not thrilled. More than likely would not visit again.

Great service, delicious food and strong drinks!! Loved the scenic view. It was very hot outside though we chose to eat outside and enjoy the atmosphere. I loved the Mahi sandwich. I wish we had more time to take a dip!

The best thing about this restaurant is the atmosphere. Every evening at sunset many stop in to visit the tiki bar and watch the sunset from the beach. The food was great, the service was great and the outdoor seating was very romantic at sunset. This is an excellent place to visit !!!!!!

I was here with a large group of over 20. We were seated quickly in the outside area with a nice view of the sunset. The restaurant is a nice property on the bayside and has an outdoor bar. The inside area is much smaller. The men's room was clean. The service was very good. The staff both friendly and... More

Went there for dinner, was less than stellar. Service and food was ok at best. I am a chef for over 30 years. I watch everything that goes on in a restaurant, management has no clue what is going on. I have been coming to the keys for over 40 years, now I know why I have never eaten here.

Good food with great views of bay Fair prices outdoor bar & patio and swing table dining as well as indoor air conditioned room to dine in on those extra hot evenings. Could use a bit more staffing but servers were friendly and attentive

We were traveling to Key West for a couple days and was told to stop here for a quick drink on the way through. I'm very glad we did. The drinks were delicious but the views were even better. Looking out over the gulf is beautiful. Definitely a must stop at place.
