Made reservations for Thanksgiving and a special B-Day asking for a window table and arrived early and was told we had a good table but ended up being a poor location. Manager/host was clueless and didn’t seem to know what to do when we raised multiple issues to him. Service started out good but as the room filled with almost... More

We had Thanksgiving dinner here and it was good but service was really slow. We had a table on the single balcony which was great but we got forgotten about. We sat for at least ten to fifteen minutes before ever getting water or drinks ordered. My husband had to go hunt someone down. The lobster and steak dinner was... More

Another restaurant on the Key West Marina where we dined during our recent trip to Key West. Our steaks were delicious, and the setting very romantic.

I love this place. Have been few times. Seafood is fresh and delicious. I went with my family during Thanksgiving weekend; we enjoyed happy hour, the quality of food was excellent and so was the price.

Been coming here for years, great food and service consistently. The real secret is the happy hour, come early to get a good seat. My parents who live in kw, frequently make a meal of this extravagant happy hour menu (lamb chops, ribs, shrimps). Awesome harbor breeze and views.

Great place to eat and check out the boats. Would go back on our next visit to the Keys. Pricing is inline with other restaurants in the area. Service staff was very friendly and the shrimps were fresh and tasty!

We came here a few times during our week in Key West and loved it. Half price drinks and apps from like 4-630. Packed house told the tale especially since there are 3-4 places nearly with the same happy hours special. Those were empty and this one was packed. Delicious food (conch fritters and coconut shrimp were our faves) and... More

Six if us visited this restaurant for a birthday dinner. The birthday girl had prime rib and loved it. The rest of us had other things and none of us much enjoyed our food. The conch chowder was more like marinara sauce. It was very tomatoey with lots thyme and oregano and no conch or many vegetables. Three of us... More

Passed this restaurant on our way to snorkeling trip. The menu looked good, so we came back for dinner. It was loud and crowded, but the food did not disappoint. We all had the prime rib and it a generous portion at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend.

Thank wjack
