Nice place for lunch was never full but always had plenty of people. Must be the same kitchen as the Fish Company but a few extras are on the menu. The lobster soup bread bowl was great. Ate lunch there several times wile visiting. Upstairs for the sportsman's store and a really nice overlook out over the bay. They have... More

This restaurant is upstairs in the Bass Pro Shop Wild World of Sports store. You can enter through the store or via the steps on the east side of the building. We were the only people in the indoor restaurant and we were greeted warmly by the bartender/server. We ordered and shared the appetizer if Crab Cake, Conch Fritter and... More

I am always surprised when I enter Zane Grey's and find it empty. Perhaps it's because some mistake it for a restaurant. It's not, it's a BAR. Dark woods, taxidermy work, photos of long dead fish and anglers. Knowledgeable bartenders too. This not the place to go for a cold Miller Lite. Martinis, Manhattans and Margaritas are the way to...

Travel up the elevator and enter through the expansive sports store / gift shop to the Lounge. It is on the second floor, overlooking the marina. Great for sunset views looking over the far Everglades. Zane Grey was a fabled writer who came to the Keys for sports fishing and is said to have influenced Ernest Hemingway's own passion for...

Waited forever for food, was $70 for two sandwiches and it wasn't even quality food. Ordered a fish Reuben and the bread looked like cheap grocery store bread.

Started off poorly --when they brought out the water --they slipped the entire glass on my son. Thank goodness it was just stare. The beer is good --but they did not know how to make a Moscow Mule for my wife? Really --said it was an old time drink?-REALLY Sorry but nothing special here to see or do ..Move o

Did some shopping and then enjoyed happy hour at the lounge. Nice happy hour specials. Great setting. Casual. The lounge is upstairs on the 2nd level of the shop. There is a small inside bar area and an outside deck area. The outside area is great but, if you are not a smoker, sit away from the wind. Area is... More

The Zane Grey Lounge sits atop the most amazing fish tackle shop, the World Wide Sportsman. Beautiful paneling, but the menu does not match the surroundings. Stick to the tried and true such as fish sandwiches or grilled fish. Excellent Bloody Mary. Take the elevator up; imported from an old Art Deco building in France. Varied shopping from very serious... More

We were told the restaurant would be open until 9:00 and arrived at 8:30 -- I had called earlier to see what time they would be open and if it was possible to have a table for 8 people. I was told yes- this was over the 4th of July holiday. My daughter had just gotten engaged and we want... More
