“If breakfast is your thing!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

The Blue Dolphin is the best place for breakfast. Located in the Centre Shops this is really a busy place at breakfast time. Great pancake and egg dishes.

“Basic grill”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Went for breakfast and enjoyed good, friendly service. Food was good but nothing unique or supereconomical. Ask for the real maple syrup:-)

“Popular on Friday's for good reason”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Friday nights they feature lobster or prime rib deals which are worth making a trip for. Quality and value very good. Servers are very friendly. This is and has the ambience of a cafe. They can be very busy.

“BDC #2”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

There are two Blue Dolphin Cafes (that I know of) and the food is great in both of them. One is on the "Circle" on Lido Key and the other is on Longboat Key in the Center Shops. It's a small shopping center toward the middle of the key and north of the Publix Food Store. It's not as busy as the one on the circle although plan for some wait time.
Breakfast, lunch & dinner are served here and it's a very casual diner atmosphere. The food isn't as gourmet as other restaurants on the Keys, but everything comes cooked as you ordered it and the food is plentiful and steaming hot. We had breakfast there on this trip and the food was wonderful. Try their lobster on Friday nights! Always good.

Food was well prepared and provided a wide variety of choices. Service was excellent and staff was very friendly. Can't go wrong with anything on menu.
