Food was good. Sitting out side on the deck had a great view. Staff was friendly. Closed at 8 PM so make sure you go early.

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 lakeside dining. Good menu- blackened chicken tacos were great, cheese curds great, service good, prices above average but everything on island is. Will definitely be back!

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!

Beautiful festive location. Good perch. Pricy. Didn’t care for The blood orange margarita. It had black salt dripping down from the rim, looked like mascara running. Top notes of salt with a kerosene finish.

My husband and I visited here yesterday, and we had a great experience! We hadn’t been to Put-in-Bay before and weren’t sure where to go for dinner. We do not regret choosing The Keys! The service was great, and our dinner was delicious! We shared...the cheese curds appetizer, my husband had the perch sandwich and I had the chimichurri chicken bowl. I also had a rum runner cocktail which was delicious. We were very impressed with the whole experience, and if we ever return to Put-in-Bay we will go back to The Keys!More

What a fun place! All the cool beachy decor and colors one would expect from a place called The Keys. We sat outside due to both the COVID and it being a gorgeous day out and the views are awesome. Great view of the Perry...Monument, the boats and marine and the lake itself. The staff was friendly, service was good, food was delicious and the price was reasonable. My boyfriend had a fruity beverage from the bar and not only was it pretty but it tasted great! Would definitely have a meal here again!More

This place was pretty awesome. It is right on the water surrounded by amazing views in so many different places , the whole place is funky colored and beach decorated and really makes it feel fun and festive. The frozen drinks (the painkiller) are amazing....The best and strongest drink I had the whole time and it was only $11. The mahi mahi blackened tacos were super moist and filled with all kinds of toppings and moderately priced . Our waiter was very nice and attentive the whole time, carried on conversations with us and made sure we were well taken care of. My wife and I highly recommend this place.More

This is our favorite restaurant on the island. Last night I had the conch fritters and grouper fingers and my wife had the shrimp tacos. All excellent. Our waitress was Paige and she was great. There are many drinks to choose from and they are...large and reasonably priced. An added benefit was live music not to mention a great location and view.More

Great place located right by the Jet Express. Great food and key west feel. All workers taking Covid precautions. Loved the grouper fingers.

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.
