“Nice restaurant, great food”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We stayed in the hotel so we had a dinner in the restaurant, the food was very nice. We had the stone crabs which is the local speciality. oysters and a salad and we really liked it. The portions are big and the prices quite high but that's Key West. The service was good, they helped us to decide on what to order and they were checking if we were ok all the time.
The hotel itself is located just next to a busy road and there are plenty of construction works going on around so the view isn't great but in the evening it's not as busy as the Key West city centre which is great for enjoying a nice dinner.

Stone crab is a local delicacy that everyone loves, especially locals. Our own fishermen catch our local seafood. I hope you got the chance to photograph them unloading on the dock. Thank you for taking time to write us a review.

“Not that good”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The food was very expensive and not that good. The servers were very nice though. I didn't like to go out back to the restroom it didn't feel safe after dark.

Key West is not cheap in general. We are less expensive than the seafood restaurants downtown because we have our own fishing boats. We are an island and so everything "imported" costs more to provide. Our restaurant is perfectly safe so please don't worry. Maybe the large parrot cage next to our herb garden is a little surprising at night? They do squawk!

“on site restaurant”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Located at Ibis Bay resort. Service was not that great. The free morning coffee wasn't ever refilled and you had to ask several times to get a cup. View isn't great right now with lots of construction.

Thank you. I am happy you loved the dishes you ordered from Austin. A stay in Key West isn't complete until you have tried The Stoned Crab's fresh seafood. I hope you got to see the fish and crabs being unloaded off the boats onto the dock. That's is a great time for a vacation photo.

I order our Ahi Tuna Salad 3 or 4 times every week for my lunch. The marinated edamame on the side are my favorite food. Thank you for stopping by.
