“Great place for seafood at Crandon Park”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

We had lunch at this relaxed atmosphere cafe with a nice sea view in beautiful Crandon Park.
The grilled lobster with creole shrimp is great as well as the grilled grouper. Do not miss it if you go to Key Biscayne, Florida.

“Would return if I was already at the state park.”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This restaurant is located within a state park, therefore you will need to pay to enter the park. Not such a big deal since you nead to pay to park anywhere in Miami. The seating for the restaurant is a covered deck. You will be able to see the water, but don't expect a pristine Miami Beach type view. You can see a slice of water through the walking path to the beach. The food was good and not too expensive. I don't have any real complaints. Nor do I have any specific compliments that would specifically make me return. If I were already in the State park, I may go to this restaurant again. But, I wouldn't make a trip to the State park just to go to this restaurant. This restaurant is walking distance to the beach. Walking down the beach and viewing the lighthouse was as memorable as this restaurant.

“Good food, great view”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This was our second choice for lunch since the line was out the door in town. We were seated immediately even though it was just a little after noon on a Sunday. Good grouper sandwiches and enchilado shrimp. Great view of the ocean while we dined. Very attentive service.
