Another one of the lower keys gems. Amazing variety of options on the menu from fresh seafood, creative salads, jumbo sandwiches to daily specials. I’m becoming a regular here. They offer a great rewards program for frequent diners.

Back in the Keys again. Some updates to the huge menu. I had the panko fried shrimp and liked them much better than the beer battered ones. The fish sandwich was also excellent. See photos. Still great service.

We've been eating at Bucktooth Rooster at least once every trip since it opened. I don't know how they stay in business because the servings are huge and the price is very reasonable. The menu is so good we always end up ordering our own...More
