“Warm Oasis on a windy evening!”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

What a nice evening . We are repeat visitors to The Keys and were delighted to find Mandalay re-opened. The manager visited each table and gave us a warm welcome. He genuiinely enjoys his job and makes everyone feel at home. The fare was diverse enough to make everyone happy. When we thought it couldn't get any better a really talented vocalist joined the party and belted out familar tunes , one after another. She had the crowd joining her in every tune. Wow, What a great evening! Don't miss it!!

“The best restaurant in the Upper Keys, hands down.”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

The best restaurant in the Upper Keys, hands down! Great view, food, service, entertainment and of course fun, affordable Happy Hour! We are locals and have begun visiting several times a week now and we're so happy to have a place where the employees seem to enjoy where they work and what they do. The service is awesome, the Manager never misses an opportunity to greet the guests and everything we've tried on the menu is delicious. With beautiful oceanfront views and live entertainment, it's the tops! Good job Mandalay, keep up the great work!

Reviewed January 26, 2012

Music each day, great food and right on the water. Doesn't get any better. (Heaters are a nice touch, too!)

“Scrumptious food, lovely setting, gracious host; I'll be back again!"”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

This was the perfect place for a lovely lunch right on the water in Key Largo. Outdoor dining with "side curtains" in case the breeze gets too rambunctious, and the food was simply excellent. The host was gracious and made us feel very welcomed, and the server was appropriately attentive. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and just what I wanted during my brief stay in Key Largo. Not hard to find, but keep your eye out on the Ocean side of Hwy 1 so that you don't miss it and go somewhere else by accident. You want to go here on purpose!

“Contender for one of the best in the Key Largo”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Great! Dropped in for lunch and totally enjoyed the experience! The greeting was prompt and friendly. The menu offered numerous choices with a flare! The GM visited every table
to welcome patrons and then again to ensure satisfaction. Also important to us was a Gluten Free requirement of which he was very knowledgeable and pointed out all available choices. The lamb/beef burger was delicious.
It is true waterfront dining that is set up properly to handle windy or cool days without loosing the outdoor dining atmosphere.
