“Great service”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Service and food were both great. Only downside is that we hit a small cold spell. It is outdoors and was cool at nights.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Ridiculous. Terrible experience. We showed up at 5 PM and were told they did not accept reservations, but that we could call ahead 30 minutes. So we walked back to our room, called 20 minutes later and got on a list. We got there 30 minutes later and were told an extra half hour. Meanwhile locals were let in, obviously knew the staff. We waited over 2 hours and gave up.

“Service, food, and atmosphere...it's all good.”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Waited 10 minutes for a table on a Saturday night. No problem; enjoyed a drink at the bar on the beach looking out at the water.
Wait staff were very friendly and attentive, but not too intrusive. We ordered shrimp pasta and coconut shrimp; both were excellent.
Overall, the combination of atmosphere, service, and food quality will bring us back.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

The food is worth the wait. In season you will wait up to an hour as the place is small. Beach your boat or drive, it's worth the trip. Staff is friendly and the food is fresh.

“Tasty food, lovely view, AWESOME staff”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We ate here a few times while staying at Lovers Key Resort. It's a super casual restaurant right on the water. The food is good- goes beyond typical pool-front burgers and fries. But what really stood out and made it so that we will definitely go back was the staff. We were there with our 1.5 year old, and they were so accommodating and helpful. It made our visits that much better.
