A nice place for a cold beer or a cortadito but definitely don't eat there if you want a good meal especially breakfast. It's your basic diner food but certainly a good place to get a cold beer or soda and rest on a long...More

Likely the best brunch buffet I and my husband have ever encountered. At $89 a person, I admit, I was somewhat skeptical of getting ripped. That was far from the case. Endless, serve yourself mimosas, Bloody Marys, and Gin Punches says plenty. But the offerings...More

As another reviewer wrote, they would rather clean tables than serve their guests. The Florida state park should be embarrassed letting these guys try and fail to run a restaurant in this lovely park.

After visiting the Lighthouse, we stopped at this cafe. I had a fish sandwich and my husband had tuna. Sandwiches were pretty good but fries were not too hot and service was a little slow. We enjoyed the seaside table and view of the lighthouse.

The new concept for the Lighthouse is light, bright and airy. While only having breakfast daily at this venue, my experience may be limited. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and scrumptious. At times, the Made to order omelet station was crowded yet the chef had...More

Had lunch here and it was great, lovely view of the sea and also great entertainment from watching the raccoons. Food was really good and compared to a lot of places on Key Biscayne the prices where good.

We stopped at this restaurant after a trip to see the lighthouse. It is open-air dining on a large deck. The deck has both covered and uncovered seating for either full sun or shade. The food is fine, nothing fancy, but good quality. The prices...More
