Got our seat outside after reserving it. Awesome place with great customer service! The food was soooo good!!! My husband has the lamb and I had the grouper. Both were excellent choices. If you go, be sure to make a reservation. This place is hard to get into otherwise.

We were there on a night with lots of music on the dock, which made it all the better. The meal was very good. If you get the "small plates," two are usually enough.

Dined on a Sunday evening. Our waitress was wonderful....cheerful and helpful! Service overall was superb. Dinner exceeded our expectations and the overall experience was as good as I can remember for many years. Do NOT skip the key lime pie. Best we had on Key West.....by far! If not for a cruise ship that did not leave the harbor before... More

Even though the outdoor bar and music scene was loud and wild, we had a wonderful dinner sitting outside, looking over the water, where all the boats were returning to port. Pretty sunset. Food is expensive but very nice. I had the shrimp cocktail, unusual preparation. Hogfish dinner, also wonderful. Great cocktails. Very good service.

We went here for dinner on my husband's 40th birthday. They sat us outside at a table with the most breathtaking view of the water. The service was great and the food was amazing!

We arrived with the pre-sunset crowd at 6:00 when the house opened to get a great seat on the covered deck. This is the dining room at the Ocean Key resort on the Key West waterfront with an un-obstructed view of the water and sunset. The service was routinely warm and attentive without hovering; they knew we were here for... More

Several friends and I enjoyed a fantasyic brunch highlighted by attentive but not intrusive service; fresh, wholesome food; and perfect cocktails. Plenty of meatless options for the vegetarian and a great view rounded out our visit.

My best of everything winner for dining on Key West. Best sunset dining experience. Best hand-crafted cocktails (Hint: Try the 'Hot Tin-Tini' and Hemingway Daiquiri). Best fresh seafood offerings and service. Seafood Paella is awesome and shareable, especially if you share the mouth watering Lobster Mac N Cheese as well! And say 'yes' to the Key Lime Pie. Be smart-... More

My photos speak louder than anything. Unless you are coming for the sunset. I do not recommend otherwise. The freshness of the food is questionable. Oyster in poor quality. Dry and withered with a cloudy appearance. Burnt Crab meat cake is as bad as my homemade. Paella just as a microwave food. Very dry. Furthermore I waited the paella for... More
