Staff was friendly, food was fresh. Splitting for kids not an issue. Dessert (key lime pie) was best in marathon so save some room.

The staff is FANTASTIC. They were attentive without hovering; were professional and pleasant. The space was great..in keeping with the surroundings. The only issue, my fish was over cooked...it's the Keys, they should be able to do seafood right.
