Every Sunday, this restaurant has a pit barbecue special for $16.99 which includes your choice of the seafood-mahi and shrimp, or chicken and ribs. My husband and I ordered one of each, so that we could sample each others delectable, smokey food. This deal does not disappoint!! The entrees come with a generous portion of coleslaw, yellow rice, and some wonderful home made baked beans. Our barbecue entrees were large and delicious. The jalepeno cornbread completes the meal, so that you can mop up the sweet juices from the baked beans. The restaurant has a old Florida fishcamp type of feel and setting, right on the water, complete with picnic tables and some locals with their dogs. There also was an accoustic guitarist strumming some blues to add to the old world flavor of this place. It is charming and down home on the water. Don't miss this place!!! It's reminiscent of the Keys 30 years ago. Oops...also our server Lindsey was spot on...:)

The coldest beer, great food and the atmosphere can't be more 'keysee'. Eat at picnic tables on the water's edge. The hogfish sandwich it the best.

This place is off the beaten track, and will get you away from the crowds. You sit on a covered deck overlooking the water and mangroves. We saw two sharks swim by.

Definitely get the hogfish. You won't find it outside the Keys. It is delicious. Whether you like fish or not, you will like hogfish. The sweet potato fries are excellent as well.

A genuine local experience. Down the road a bit is a very nice beach, which becomes the only legal nude beach in the Keys. The dress code at the restaurant doesn't permit nudity. Very casual is appropriate, however.

Although we are normally ones to be in a rush to get to Key West, we were so glad we saw the reviews of this place. RIght on the water and good food and cold beer. If you are a fan of Alabama Jacks, this is a step up (not in the funky way that Alabama Jacks is) but in food choice. Good selection of BBQ and other choices beyond fish. Tons of great seats overlooking the small canal and mangroves. We will go back.

It is a short drive off the main road and is part of a marina, but don't give up give it a shot.

Plug this one into your Garmin- it's worth the hunt. More and better food than you can imagine, right on the water. Actually has good BBQ (me being from eastern NC). One of my very favorite places in the Keys. You'll turn at the Circle K and go 1.3 miles, turn left -look for the sign. This is a don't miss!
