Older place but kept up. Breakfast looking out to the ocean is nice. Prices are reasonable - but a little expensive for dinner. No lunch. Must make reservations for dinner as it is a small dinning room.

Outside looks bad, but the restaurant is Vern nice inside. Locally owned and known for outstanding food and great service. We had the hogfish dinners. They were OUTSTANDING! Waiters were uniformed. White linen tablecloths. Very relaxed, Florida Keys atmosphere. WE WILL GO BACK!
