We were disappointed by our visit to Sundowners which had been highly recommended.
The famous tarpons have gone, obviously not the fault of the management, but the food was mediocre which was. The lobster tail was undersized, the yellowtail was flabby and overcooked and in our view expensive, at $29. On the plus side our server was delightful and efficient. He even gave us some fish to try to coax the tarpons. Good location on the ocean front and we were told by our friend who is a regular that the recent refurb has been successful. However this would not tempt us to return.

They even make the ketchup! Local shrimp blackened on a croissant with homemade bacon lettuce tomato and another homemade sauce. You can tell that they care about every detail. Wish we had found this place sooner. Hand cut fries, 5 cheese mac & cheese. Only wish I had room for the Key Lime Pie. Beautiful outdoor seating, covered and open. Inside was a little odd but looked like it was getting some repairs. Service was excellent.

We were told Sundowners (sister restaurant to our favorite other key largo eatery ballyhoos) had a great vegan menu. Not the case. they offered maybe 2 items. pasta with veggies was about it. And it was bland - pretty tasteless - with the exception of the mushroom skewers - they mushrooms were very flavorful. If you are wanting to sit outdoors along the ocean - it's beautiful - go for drinks. But the food was not worth going there to have. And it was expensive as well! Our sever was very pleasant, so good service was not an issue.

My husband and I were spending the day on Key Largo. We stopped here just for drinks but wished we were ready for supper. If the quality of their cocktails is any indication of the quality of their food, we wouldn't have been disappointed.

For the cocktails, they had a very large cocktail menu, including several frozen concoctions which are great after a long day in the sun. The atmosphere is wonderful.
