Our waitress was cheerful and helpful in discussing other dining option sin town. A... More

We stopped for lunch and my wife got the hot turkey with gravy. We were expecting sliced breast, versus thin sliced sandwich meat heated up with gravy, on untoasted white bread. Prices were great, service was wonderful, just that hot turkey could have been explained better. Lots of locals and probably the best place around to get breakfast (we will... More

My family stopped in for a quick bite and fell in love. The decor is very Keys like and the food was amazing. This place has been added to our list of staples when visiting the Keys.

Lucky us, we got Nancy again. We are part time residents down here, and it nice to see a friendly, helpful face. Can I just say...a must eat breakfast place, but they serve other meals too! So much Keys memorabilia on walls, it will make your heart happy. Two words: Tater Tots...yep you heard me - Tater Tots...a staple in... More

We experieced a late breakfast. The menu is full of local specialities, mostly seafood. Prics are reasonable and service is fast and friendly. It is a typical american drop-by place at the highway as seen on american movies. Definately worth of visiting.

Retail store is absolutely incredible ! But I ordered the calamari and it was soggy. Almost no taste. I peeled all the breading off and it was still only kinda blah. Wait staff must have been tired and ready to go home Bc they were as mediocre as the food. I have been here before, and had a great experience.... More
