“A Good spot at Happy Hour but not before!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Place was dead at 3PM didn't even have music playing so we left! Visited several other depressing spots and then came back at 4:30PM, pretty awesome! Deffinitely the best bar we visited in Key Largo! Lively and right on the water. A great mix of locals and tourists! Bar staff very courteous and professional

“Quick stop in the Keys”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

On our way home from Key West, we stopped at Jimmy Johnson's Big Chill in Key Largo for lunch. The location was beautiful and we were able to sit looking right out on the Gulf. All in all, it was a nice lunch, although the food was was only slightly above average, as was the service.

“Quick escape from Miami”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We head over here to hang out by the bayside in a nice sized clean pool with a chill mellow crowd with or without the kids. Service is always great and food is fresh. Personal fave is the Tuna Nachos.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Food and service were average (service maybe slightly below, balanced out by excellent garlic rolls) but the sunset view was pretty great. I like a side of boats coming into the harbor with my sunset meal to be fully sated, and that I got! We like to try new places every time we visit the Keys, so if that's your thing too, add this place to your list. They do take reservations and you can request a good sunset table outdoors.

“Not Sure if Jimmy knew I was in town!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I took my enthusiastic family of four kids, two boys and two girls, aged 5 - 13, and mom and me. We had a great time. We were seated outside and were entertained with an incredible Key Largo sunset! The food was delicious, and the local fish served up well. We will go back the next time we are in the area. My only disappointment was, that we missed seeing the Coach himself, who had been at the sports bar area only an hour before we arrived. Someone forgot to tell him that our dive boat came in at 5:30 P.M., and of course we had to gather ourselves and clean up a little. So maybe next time I will call ahead and let the a coach know that we are in town.
