Sat at the bar for a few drinks around lunch time. Bartender was really friendly and kept our drinks full. Going back again today to try their food!

This place was great! They have a big selection of cocktails, the food was good and tasted fresh, and the wait staff was very friendly. We went on a busy Saturday afternoon and they were good on timing with things! I recommend the grouper fingers...and marhgarita flatbread! Overall it was great, great atmosphere, and we are looking forward to going back!More

My overall rating of 4 was an average of 5 (for the atmosphere) and 3 (for the food). It is a pretty place with attentive servers and live entertainment. It's location is lovely right on the water. The perch sandwich that we shared was just...OK and a little expensive (compared to other restaurants on the island). If we go back, it would probably be for drinks and appetizers.More

As soon as we got off The Jet, it was a short walk to the Keys restaurant. They were just opening so our party of 3 went in and got a beautiful table next to the water. Our waiter, Max, was great! He told us...the specials and got our drinks. He no sooner walked away and he was back with our beverages. Then a rooster crowed and we felt right at home, down in Key West. The Grouper fingers were excellent, as was the calamari, Pina Colada, tortilla soup and the onion rings. Everything was served quickly and, every bite was delicous! We highly recommend The Keys for a great dining experience.More

Very nice place...we came here prior to going to some other places and this restaurant set the bar...can't ask for much more. Fancy? Absolutely not. But the food was very tasty, the scenery nice, and the service friendly and caring.

Ate lunch here with the Family. Conch fritters were a yummy appetizer, Fried Shrimp plate was mostly French fries. Cuban sandwiches were awesome. Mahi Mahi fish tacos were good. Service was spot on and atmosphere is terrific.

Nice place to stop for food and drink. The bar had a great selection of drinks and the food was tasty here. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the music and the view. The wait staff had a lot of tables and were working...very hard to get food and drinks out on time.More

7/12/21; Four of us wanted lunch when we got off the ferry so we were seated quickly. The server stated they had no perch, cod, or any fish. WHAT??? We settled for drinks and conch fritter and buffalo chicken flatbread, both good but decided to...eat lunch at the Boardwalk.More

This restaurant offered great service and generous helpings of seafood. We ordered the perch sandwich and the fried shrimp. Shoestring French fries with old bay are delicious. The smoothie for the kids was delicious. The mojito tasted a little watered down.

Some entity manages much of the town. I’m good with it as the two places we visited were excellent. This place was clean with prompt service. The food was excellent! We split a salad and perch platter for lunch. Perfect crunch on the fish. Super...tasty and fresh salad. Good job!More

Beautiful view of the lake. Very dog friendly. Our pup enjoyed a nice bowl of ice water that staff brought out to him and greeted him. Food was wonderful. My families favorite was the French fries. Our boys enjoyed the strawberry slushy!

I believe they have several items on the menu that could be worked in to be gluten free.

I would call and ask the day you plan on going to be sure as I'm sure on the weekends it gets very busy there.
