Stopped by restaurant during their Happy Hour and had some of the best appetizers from their menu, including chicken wings, ribs, seafood snacks. The prices were extremely reasonable compared to other places in Key West. The restaurant is on the marina pier and you can easily look at great boats in the marina and is a great place just to watch people

Granted this place was within walking distance from our hotel (Bahia Mar Doubletree by Hilton), it was the great food that made us keep coming back.

Scoobies is highly recommended. Blue crab claws served in olive oil, garlic, scallions, parsley and maybe some butter. I'm sure I'm missing some ingredients, but it was a very good preparation to serve the crab claws.

Lobster roll was good, but having lived in an area where Lobster rolls are staple food, I thought their version had a bit too much mayo for my taste. The proportions were perfect though, lots of lobster meat.

My brother had the Pompano fish of the day, which was also delicious.

Drinks were good, though a bit on pricey side. I guess it's a touristy area. Automatic 18% gratuity was added to the check for any sized party, which I think is the normal for this area.

Ambience is typical of what you'd expect for any restaurant near a marina. It has outdoor marina views and inside area that does not typically stand out.

We have eaten here before, but tonight's dinner was awful. Baked chicken was dry and rubbery as if it spent 2 days in a crockpot. Out of the side I wanted, so I got Mac and cheese. How do you ruin Mac and cheese? Fill it full of raw onions. Horrible.

The best cold slaw that I have even eaten. I was very disappointed in the Stone Crab. It was very very expensive and the claws were very small. They also tasted as if they had been frozen and not fresh. Their raw oysters were also very expensive - but good. I will return and try the oysters during their 'Happy Hour'.

Every time I come to Fort Lauderdale, the place is a must-stop! Fresh ingredients and delicious food. I like to eat outside and look into the water to see my yacht, okay, someone else's yacht :-)
