I took my wife here for her birthday. The outside patio dinning area is huge and the distance between the tables provides nice privacy. Our waiter Ernesto was great and we immediately felt the impression of being welcome and that our service was going to be excellent for the evening and I must say he didn't disappoint us. Our food was very good although it wouldn't be the main reason I'd go back. There was live entertainment with a singer playing the guitar with a nice vocal and the sound was loud enough but not overwhelming. The sunset view is incredible and their is a bit of scrambling for pictures just as the sun disappears on the horizon but then things calm down and after the sun goes down it's remains a beautiful site as the colors in the sky linger. There also a nice bar located on the patio that offers the same sunset views if you just wanted to stop by for a drink, We really had an enjoyable experience and would definitely go again on our next visit to the Keys.

We drove past the sign for this place a few times in our travels, not thinking it could be too much. But, a native of the area sent us there and it was really nice! When you go out to the back of the restaurant, you won't believe what a beautiful area they have for outdoor dining . The tables and chairs are very nice, and set up for all sizes of groups. Each place is a private place, you're not packed in next to others. We chose a 4 seat glider to eat at that was right up to the ocean. The service was very good, the food was excellent, and worth every cent! From appetizers to bread basket, to entree and dessert, everything we ate was excellent.
I'm glad we were told about it, otherwise, we may have continued to pass it by.

Wonderful place to see the sunset. Tables are arranged outside on pavers so you don't have to walk thru the sand in shoes. Service was slow - waited 10 mins before being greeted by a server to take our drink order. However, server apologized and from that point on the service was fine. Delicious Flatbread to start, hogfish with lump crabmeat for me, onion encrusted mahi for my husband. Nice place to relax and enjoy the view. For me, the musician takes away from the ambience.

Must stop and see the sunset. It just takes your breath away. Even if you don't eat, set and have a drink by the water. The drinks are yummy. The food is average. The prices are high.
The service is always good. The men and women there treat you really good.

Consistenly good. Our food was very tasty. Outside patio huge but it was raining on and off so we sat inside which is small but was not crowded for lunch that day. Oh, and the outside area has really nice gliders with seating and table which is neat. Staff wonderful.
