“Cheery bar”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Eclectic menu for a bar, speedy service, fresh simple seafood. Had the mahi mahi sandwich which was bun fish lettuce tomato; nothing special ( I don't know why I'm under the impression that fish sandwiches will one day blow my mind). Mahi mahi tacos were flavorful and fresh. Don't sit outdoors in the evening ! Thankfully Brian was kind enough to tell us to move inside when he saw Mosquitos circling us; within 5 minutes I was bitten to bits don't know what would've happened if he didn't say anything.

“Friendly staff, cold beer, great views”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stopped here several times over our two week trip, and were met with friendly smiles and a comfortable, easy atmosphere each time. The outside tiki bar is great, and you can watch the captains unload their catch as they return from their trips.

“Busy place”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I loved the fact that they cooked the permit fish I caught that morning. Brought it in, they grilled it, gave me sides and a drink and I was happy. It's a bar/restaurant, nothing fancy at all.

“Really good food!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Initially i thought the service would be bad, the clean up boy was rather rude, looked at us and said you can sit anywhere, we chose a a table and he trew the cutlery on our table... Lucky we got a for real waiter after that. He was patient and polite and made funny comments...
The food was delicious,i had mahi grilled with sweet plantains...yum. My husband ordered the enchilada with shrimp, although quite spicy it was very good.
Pricing wasnt the cheapest but worth it.
I would return!

“Excelente server and service”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We visited Wahoo's restaurant for a quick drink on our way to Key West. Well we had the most amazing experience with this server. As we were quickly approached by our waitress Margarida we told her our dog was in the car so we were only having a quick drink, and she informed us that our dog was able to join us. When we got back upstairs Margarida was waiting for us at a different table with our drinks and a bowl of water for our dog Scott. She asked if the table we were sitting at was comfortable because a smaller table would not be ideal for Scott. My wife and i looked at each other as we were amazed that she was treating our dog like a customer it was unbelievable, we were speechless. So we decided to stay and have lunch, the food was really good, we had the Pan seared shrimp and fried sample platter. This restaurant has provided the best service that i have ever come to know and we have been to loads of places. We have been bragging about it to all our friends and family and even in Key west we told a few new friends to stop by and try out Wahoo's Bar an Grill on their way back up from Key West. Margarida with a D lol keep up the amazing work and your a great example to follow thank you soo much for everything.
