We sat at a shady table. We had a limited view of the water. Some tables have better views. The breeze was nice. The menu was great, lots of seafood options, salads, sandwiches. Prices were fair. True old style FL restaurant.

The server was very helpful and attentive. We had crab cakes and key lime pie which was great. This is the oldest place on the water very historic. Need to visit if thus is your type of food.

First time to Old Key Lime House, it was a beautiful day sky was blue and water was calm. Awesome day for kicking back and having a drink with old college friends. The margarita was delicious and Bam bam shrimp good. I will come back with my husband to try out the rest of the menu.

Back side of restaurant is on the Bay, not oceanfront. Fun, randomly-decorated, casual atmosphere place for any meal. Easily half a dozen different places to sit, some are tiki bar-like, others are on the pier under cute cabanas, others are inside, upstairs under strings of lights, each location setting a different feel. Most seats outside can hear the centrally located... More

It was our last evening in Florida, and we decided to try out this place after a referral from a family member. We drove 15 miles from where we were staying in Boca Raton to get to the restaurant. I have to say that the drive out was beautiful! We got seated at a nice table outside and prepared for... More

We enjoyed sitting ouside by the water. We had the waino sandwich which was great. There were a wide variety seafood choices. Casual attire. We went back again and listened to a live music. A relaxing time.

My hubby and I stopped here on the way home, and so glad we did. We sat in the large bar area, service was great, friendly and surprisingly attentive being they were very busy. Food exceeded expectations, large shrimp basket was full of plump shrimp that were not greasy or over breaded. Fish dip was good, needed carrots and celery,... More

The atmosphere is the thing. Plenty of water views, many bars offering different vantage points, outdoor and covered dining areas makes this tourist trap a fun visit. Prices are reasonable and young couples as well as singles can happily find their niche. Food is solid. Drink menu is interesting. A paella was generously portioned. The namesake key lime pie is...
