“Clams to dies for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

S had never had clams. S was reluctant but had the clams garlic lemon sauce. S really enjoyed. We had the heart of palm salad.. Very nice and light dressing. Pecan encrusted grouper was good. Sat at the bar. The waitress was overly chatty. But very nice.

“Fabulous lunch - Attentive service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Moderately priced menu with a great kitchen and killer Gulf view. Clean. Quiet - peaceful ambiance. Shrimp scampi and the shrimp wrap are wonderful.

“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Second time never disappointed. Had farm raised redfish which is like unheard of. Nice fresh salads. Don't even offer the "authentic heart of Palm" salad which probably hasn't existed for ages. Excellent seafood choices, veggies just so so.

“Get there before 8:00PM”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

The food was great, prices were good and they had daily specials if you arrived before 8:00PM.
A little strange that the specials were cash only. Friendly staff, reasonable pricing, full bar and good food.

“Fine Dining Experience at the "Key"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Visited the Island Room for dinner last year, it is an upscale, fine dining experience. Food was very good, wait staff very helpful, we enjoyed our meal very much. Probably would return there again, however, my husband and I are more of the casual persuasion and tend to eat more meals out at lunch while in places like Cedar Key - then spend time at night sitting on balconies looking at the nice water views, or walking around town. Will give them another 'whirl' next time we visit the Island for a longer period of time than our most recent visit.

For a scenic view you must be there before dark, and perhaps watch the sunset.
