We love half shells! It has the best happy hour anywhere in the Keys. Fresh seafood and great staff. Laura is my favorite bartender!! She’s quick with a drink and funny as all get out.

I love the place... Alot of the restuarants in Keu West were sold out of Crab Claws, so I called ahead and the staff held some for me. I went by myself amd the staff got me to a table immediately with the claws inbound. I enjoyed it so much that I expanded the order to include Oysters Rockefeller and Buffalo shrimp. It was all soo delicious it's hard to compare but if I had to choose it would be the claws then the Rockefellers.

Stone Crabs are sometimes hard to get but we have been dealing with the same crabbers for many years and they always come thru for us. Thanks for dinning with us...

We arrived late, only jumbo stone crabs were available. They offered both steamed and garlic flavored stones crabs, both are very delicious. The place is great for family and with kids! I also bought a Half Shell Raw Bar mug (only six dollars) from the restaurant.

We took our adult children here on their first trip to the keys for Happy Hour. They love seafood and we all had our fill on oyster, clams, and calamari. Can not beat the prices for HH. I was as good as always with a great view of the water. We will go back.

We went to the raw bar to take advantage of the lower prices on fresh oysters. 3 of us ate modestly, 5 dozen total, plus some very good conch chowder and some beer steamed shrimp. All very good.
