Description: Hot Tin Roof features bright vibrant colors indicative of the overall style of the Ocean Key Resort & Spa. The restaurant's 3,000 square feet of dining features indoor seating for 60 and an outdoor deck overlooking Key West Harbor, accommodating up to 40 people. The restaurant's lounge, Stage Door, serves a unique selection of themed signature cocktails and is highlighted with a custom-designed mural by Key West artist Jeff Beal. "It's a melange of tastes and fragrances, combining traditional Florida foods with Latin, Caribbean and tropical influences. It's funky, fun, and fresh with a broad range of tastes and sensations. The restaurant features a relaxed elegance with dramatic water and sunset views.

This place was recommended to us by Terry, the concierge at LaConcha Hotel. He is a real foodie (professional chef on a cruise line!) and has lived in Key West for a long time. We told him we wanted a nice dinner with a view of the sunset. He called and made a reservation for us that evening at the Hot Tin Roof, one of his favorite places. We had a delightful evening, from the greeting of the hostess and manager, to fantastic service, and delicious food. We ended up doing wine and "small plates". The scallop and grits were awesome. So was the goat cheese flatbread. Don't miss this place, it has it all...including a terrific view of the sunset. Live music was piped in from next door...supporting the local artists. We could hear the music live from our balcony table. Can't wait to go back!

We unexpectedly walked all the way down Duval to Hot Tin Roof but when I saw it, I told my boyfriend that it had the best view in town of the sunset so we decided to try and get a table. We originally only wanted a cocktail or two while we watched the sunset but when we saw the menu, we had the inkling to stay so we asked for a table. Being a long holiday weekend, a Saturday night and almost sunset, they told us they would TRY for a table. And TRY they did...they found us the nicest table tucked away with perfect views of the sunset and we had one of the nicest meals we have ever had. The food was good, the service was excellent and the views were exceptional. Joseph (probably the manager), our server and the hostess were all delightful!

Other than the spectacular view the risotto is
The best I've ever had. Kinda of hidden on the docks and you have to climb one flight of stairs to get to the
Entrance

I never expect exceptional service or food in a resort community. I travel the world in search of the Michelin restaurants. I guess that makes me a food snob. This wonderful establishment had it ALL. Incredible ambiance, impeccable service by a warm, friendly and knowledgeable server and exceptional food as well as delicious libations.
