The staff and the food at this small resturant is awesome. We ate here everynight for the 3 days we were in key largo. We had something different every night and never had a bad meal.

The homemade pepper jalapeño jelly that came with the bread was a great start. My conch chowder was however what I expected. I was after the 'New England' style creamy clam chowder and was disappointed with what was served. The charbroiled oysters were - however- creamy & succulent and utterly fulfilling. Mushrooms came generously stuffed with the crab meat &... More

Thank you Ballyhoo's for the most incredible vegan grilled cheese of my life! Everything is made at the restaurant, including the ketchup! Finding a restaurant that has anything vegan, let alone a seperate menu with many choices, is rare. Thank you so much for considering vegans and vegetarians AND for making us the best meal of our trip. The black... More

We ate dinner here and it was great. I had yellowfin snapper Hemingway style with mac and cheese. My husband had steak and son had crab legs. Food was flavorful.

If you like them, splurge on the all you can eat deal.. they keep coming until you stop eating. Fresh, sweet and cold. Not that much work to do since they are mostly cracked open. Attentive staff and nice menu. Will be back. Not the crazy bar scene as other places.

If you love stone crabs this a great spot to get your fill! .. just make stone crabs are in season .. frozen stone crabs are not as good as fresh!

This restaurant offers a large vegetarian and vegan menu. We had the Joe vs the Volcano (also available with shrimp) and the sweet potato burger with a side of sautéed green beans that were nice fresh green beans and oh so yummy. There is outside seating, but it is near the highway. We sat indoors. The service is awesome and... More

The Hemingway Snapper was a really good choice and so was the hogfish dinner. I was surprised by the conch chowder; it reminded me of veggie soup. I was expecting a cream sauce. It was pretty good! The sweet potato side with pecans and marshmallows were tasty! The portions were way too much for me to finish.
