The atmosphere is beautifully done and there is a great view of the water from the patio. It is Caribbean food and it is delicious! I had crab cakes and black beans and rice and it was great! My husband had paella and it was great! The mojitos were fantastic! Our server, Shawn, did a great job!

Nice atmosphere, but the food was rather blah. My husband and I both ordered the fried shrimp, but it was quite dull. We had better fried shrimp at another place down the road for half the price.

We went to Hemmingway's for a change of pace from the other restaurants. They have a very nice view of the bay and offer inside and outside seating. It was too windy both times we went so we ate inside. We ate there for dinner one day and lunch another. They offer three menus for lunch. They are the regular... More

Party of 5, made reservation, was immediately seated. Mojitos were good, mahi mahi was delicious. Mom loved her shrimp. Desserts were fabulous. Only hiccups were wrong appetizer came out but they quickly corrected it, and wrong cheesecakes were mentioned when listing the desserts, nothing crazy to overshadow the food. Service was good.

The Key Lime pie - yum. The food - average. The waitress - outstanding. One thing we missed - it's dumb - but they used to have hand scrub in the bathroom. We bought some last year - and were looking forward to it. It was gone.

We had lunch here and returned two days later for Dinner. As before we were seated with a super view of the bay and the beach: atmosphere is very casual and laid back. Leandra, our server was attentive and friendly. We started with Mojitos: very good but not as good as our standard, which we found in London (of all... More

Hemingway's Island Grill was excellent! I have celiac sprue and they had a gluten free menu with a variety of options (I had salmon, but so many things looked good it was a hard decision). Hemingway's is an upscale establishment and they hosted two beach weddings and receptions that night while we had dinner. Our table was near the large... More

Wonderful food. The best service. Warm and inviting. The best Mojitos I've ever had. Exceptional service. Dined there twice in a week. Excellent fish, great appetizers and salads. Great family gathering place. Easy parking.

Thank J J
