This place is a nice change of pace. The atmosphere is really nice. We had the lobster bisque and conch chowder as apps and both were very good. Conch chowder is a little spicy so be careful if you don't like that type of food (I like spicy food so it was great to me). We had the Osso Bucco and it was okay.......the lobster ravioli was nice also. We will eat here again.

We've gone to this restaurant before. I love the atmosphere inside with the dark wood and Hemingway pictures. The menu has a lot of items like rum, cuban food and seafood which remind you of Key West. Our server was very nice and helpful. I had the best sweet tea. We also had delicious coconut shrimp. Our lunch was wonderful. It's a very unexpected place to find in the middle of a shopping center.

This key west inspired restaurant in the Coconut Point Mall has a great atmosphere. We have enjoyed this place on several occasions and decided to stop in for a casual lunch. The outdoor patio offers a relaxing setting that over looks one of the water features. They make a really good Bloody Mary, nothing fancy but very tasty. The luncheon menu offers some interesting sandwiches like the generous happy chicken salad with chunks of pineapple. You also get some of the tastiest French fries around with it. Prices are reasonable and the food is always good.

Literally, came upon this charming spot after dark, without checking any reviews, or recommendations. Enjoyed a very pleasant meal, in an outdoor location overlooking a lake. Food was well prepared, service was a little slow, but waitress attentive.menu quite varied and all appealing. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

We went to this restaurant after receiving a recomendation from friends. We were initially excited after we were seated outside as there was live entertainment. However, the service was poor. Staff brought wrong drink orders and one in our party received the wrong entree. Our initial plans were to have drinks, dinner and then stay on for after dinner drinks, but due to poor service, we closed out our tab and called it a night. Food was "so so". Nothing spectacular. I would not return here for dinner with so many other choices in the area.
