Went to Ziggy and Mad Dog's last night. Great meal. The beef was spectacular, the shrimp was divine. Arrived with reservations from Open Table that wasn't connected with Ziggy's any more and they accommodated us perfectly. From salad to dessert, no complaints. Might not put so much whipped cream on the creme brulee if I were serving, but the dessert was fabulous non the less. thanks for a great meal.

We have been visiting the Keys for 15 years and know most dining establishments and their reputations. We had not tried Ziggies until last night and what a disappointment. We sat in the bar area and the bartender tried to service the entire area. He was not capable. We waited for everything and had to ask the hostess for attention. The menu was a shocker. Entrees priced from $30 and up and everything ala carte. Stuffed Snapper is not worth $34 especially when you have to buy your sides for $8 per item. Needless to say, we were not impressed but then there was the final shocker, our bill. During our dining we each had two Jack Daniels drinks. The bill reflected a cost of $44 for these. I questioned the manager and he explained that they pour heavy. I explained that this is South Beach pricing and not at all justified in the Keys espicially at this modest facility. There was no reaction. That is what it is. In my opinion, the food is just food, nothing special. The decor and atmosphere are very simple. The service is typical for the keys, and the price is a deal killer. Get more for your money. Stick with Bentleys, Fish House, Old Tavernier and Cafe Largo. Your dollars will feel much bettter spent and your experience not tarnished by the tab as ours was.

this is where to go if you are looking to impress a client or a date. its one of the only "fine" dining Ive seen in the middle Keys. That being said, we came in flip flops and nice sundress. the freshest fish (we had the catch of the day and a HUGE wedge salad) the portions are generous and the service is excellent!
