“Worst service EVER!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Wow. Very disappointing. Had to ask ti be seated. Found our own table, Sat without any help even as 2 waiters walked past us a dozen times. Late on Sunday night many customers dining. Looks like the staff was overwhelmed. Special looked fantastic, too bad we did not get to try it.

We're sorry that we didn't live up to your expectations. We're sorry that the service was not that good and we will try harder next time.

Wahoos cooked our catch...it was great! Take your fish to the restaurant and they will cook it the way you want.

“A taste if the sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here en route to Miami Beach from our 2 day stay in Key West. Great food- shared a shrimp sandwich and spinach salad with my daughter while my husband had a cup of chili. Chili had to be sent back because it wasn't hot. Our shrimp sandwich was really good-just fresh shrimp with cilantro and some veggies on a grilled fresh roll. The setting was spectacular! We sat high up on a deck overlooking the marina with seaway vistas and a constant sea breeze! STOP HERE!! It's next to the seafood buffet restaurant.

“Incredible experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

My boyfriend and I are biking from Keylargo to Key West and found this cute little resoration spot along the way. Wow! Marie, took our Bloody Mary up a notch, with extra horse raddish to help the blood circulate more efficiently. Thanks for that! I love it when a bartender actually listens to my extra special sassy requests!
The view of the ocean right behind the bar isn't too bad either! We'll definately be back, Thanks Wahoo's!!!
