“Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Our server, Yesenia, was excellent. She is the first server that ever shook my hand at the end of the meal. We wanted to watch the holiday boat parade and had a nice table for the two of us. Yesenia frequently came back to check on us. The food and the boat parade were very good.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We ate here with our two children (7 and 4) and had a great meal. Fish was fresh and well cooked. We dined outside and the kids found watching for large Tarpon very entertaining. Service is average but adequate and given how busy the place was - we thought it was fine. I would recommend this place and would eat here again.

“A nice little spot for dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The portions were of decent size, flavorful and served quickly. If it's available, ask to be seated outside for a beautiful sunset. The Key Lime pie was pretty good, but there are better places for the pie. The server offered my friend and I a bucket of feed fish and some latex gloves to walk to the end of the pier to feed the large Tarpon that hang out there.

“Save your money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

The big attraction here are the tables on the water and the view. I work in Key Largo and tried this restaurant several times to see if I could recommend it to customers. The answer turned out to be no. I've been there for lunch and had terrible service. I took out of town guests there for dinner and spent a lot of money for food that was well below average and not as represented on the menu. My overall experience can be summed up as too expensive for what it is, not worth it except for the view, and very hit or miss in terms of service. I think if Sundowners wasn't on the water and there wasan't a steady stream of tourists they would be out of business.

“Dreadful Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

How many people does it take to provide service? One to seat us, and he was very polite. One to get a drink order and inform us who our waiter was. One waiter who was slow in showing himself, never checked on us, didn't clear our plates (the drink server did), and who only brought our check after the drink server informed him.

I ordered the crab-stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. They were very good, the mushrooms not being overwhelming one bit. For the main meal we both had Jerked Shrimp BLT's on a croissant. While I did enjoy mine, the spice did get to burn very quickly.

Basically, the food was alright, the mojito was very overpriced, and the service dreadful.
