We stayed at the Inn At Key West and decided to go here for Breakfast on our 2nd day, and then every day after that. A really low key atmosphere right on a marina, eating on the deck was awesome with good service, good breakfast and good morning drinks. The one thing that stands out more than anything was the Key Lime Stuffed French Toast! It is a delicious as you could imagine. You can't go to Key West and not get Key Lime Pie and trust me, there is no better way to have it!

I love our Key Lime French Toast for breakfast too. Sweet, but a little tart at the same time. It's a great vacation splurge. My mother firmly believes you should never order a restaurant dish that you can easily make at home. This dish is one of those. It is surpassingly difficult to get right, but our breakfast chefs do it every time.

We recently stayed at the Ibis Resort in Key West, where the Stoned Crab is located. We had A wonderful time, the staff is a wonderful bunch of young people who are not only professional but very friendly. After spending time doing the normal tourist stuff during the day we would go back to the hotel and just relax having a few drinks. When we left we felt like we were leaving friends.

Thanks to all & hope to see you soon :)

Great food isn't enough to make a restaurant great. How you are treated is just as important. My staff are proud of where they work and it shows in their genuine care of our guests.

We tried this spot while on our honeymoon and were very disappointed. Our waiter Miguel (Manuel?) was not that interested in being there it seemed and we mad the terrible choice of ordering things other than crabs or lobster... First our server forgot our appetizers and brought the entrees straight out. Normally, no biggie, but we wanted to try several things which is why we ordered multiple apps. The Ceaser salad I had as an entree should not even be on the menu. They apparently don't get that CHLOROPHYLL Should be in a salad and a ceaser dressing should be made fresh. On the spot, or at the very least daily (With Anchovies!)... We also tried the lobster mac and cheese, wouldn't go there again.. after the entrees blew so hard we were still hungry so we decided to give the apps a try again. Reordered just the conch fritters thinking we'd be safe, but they blew that too. almost burnt on the outside but still gooey and uncooked on the inside. After our dinner companion mentioned our dissatisfaction with the manager he kindly took the inedible fritters off the bill and gave us 10% off our bill rather than trying to bring us something worth eating. I guess there's enough people passing through they aren't concerned about repeat customers. Such a waste of time when your in a town with great food like Blue Heaven, Pepe's, Half shell raw bar, Square grouper, etc. Heck the Geiger Key marina bar has this place beat hands down, Hurricane hole for that matter! I'll never understand why people waste their life doing something half-assed. Maybe if we had just gotten the crab...

A genuine negative review is usually helpful because it can identify some weakness that needs my attention. Unfortunately there is a back story to this review that involves a seasonal musician who auditioned for us and was angry that he did not get the job.
