Had dinner here w/ 2 friends and was thoroughly disappointed. Place was slammed busy (waited for 40 minutes at 8pm on a weeknight). The food was just OK, my mahi tacos were tasty but the tortillas were refrigerator cold. The crab cakes were $25 for 2 and not very good either. Good french fries.

Just had lunch here. The atmosphere is like being on a little island somewhere. The service was terrific. The food was delicious. I had the Mahi-mahi tacos. Best I've ever had. Two people order the fish and chips, huge piece of fish. And one person ordered the chicken quinoa salad, which was very large and delicious. Don't miss the sweet... More

We arrived at Old Key Lime House last night at 7:30. We were told there was a 1 to 1 1/2 hour wait. We decided to walk around the restaurant before it got dark to see the magnificent views. Along the way we noticed at least 8 empty tables. At first we thought it was a ploy to get you... More

This restaurant was right by our hotel in Florida and the oldest on the Intracoastal. Wonderful views and many many different places to sit both indoors and out. Live music in some sections of the restaurant and five bars. Most of the food was great, my son had lobster and shrimp mac and cheese which was incredible. My fish came... More

Had lunch here because family wanted something close and in the water. I knew from past visits that the food was mediocre at best but went anyway. Guess what... nothing has changed. The clam chowder was tasteless and packed full of flour to thicken it. The crab cake sandwich was good in that it was mainly all crab, but could... More

Old historic place with nice ocean views. Last time we were here was 2 years ago and they have done some major changes to menu. Menu is shorter and imo a bit cheaper than it used to be - win-win! We got Mahi tacos, 10oz burger and..of course, Key lime pie! Definitely a place to go!!

OUTRAGEOUSLY good key lime pie. Yes, the best anywhere! Their bam bam shrimp, turkey club, burgers, salads, and fried shrimp are also excellent. Free valet parking.

Great atmosphere and views. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The appetizers were pretty good but our burgers were over cooked. The live music was exceptional. Nice place for a relaxing evening H

The Old Key Lime House reminds me of the former Anthony's Pier 4 in Boston. The tourist went to Anthony's and the natives went to Jimmy's. Springy wishes we knew there a "native" alternative. This place is all sizzle and no steak. The wait staff was great......they are trying to make a living. The drinks would have been better off... More

The crab cakes were excellent. Shrimp & lobster roll was very good also. The house drinks were not all that great and i expected more of the key lime pie. Very nice outdoor setting and very good wait staff.
