This place looks a dive from the road, but has a quirky 1970s character inside. The food is wonderful - definitely a steak house! Please note that the portions are large and sides are served a la cart. One side can easily serve three people. We all had steaks that barely needed a knife to cut. This is a special place so be prepared for the special prices (quite pricey - but worth it for a night out).

What a treat! Leslie the manager treated us like family! Such a comfortable experience! We have been here before but this time Galen was our waiter and they seemed to recognize us as we were regulars and treated us like family! How nice!

We did make a reservation, we did wait 30 mins for the table. Food good, period. Not great but good. I had the steak and it was maybe B to B+ quality. Nothing to write home about. But something is wrong with all these fabulous ratings, It is not a fabulous place by any means. I think most are bogus. Its a average place, overpriced but the food is good. For the Keys I would say it's above average as most places are truly dumps. I will return but I cant say it one of my top 100 places to eat but for the Keys is good. Average at best.
PS
If your looking for a heavy poor this is not the place.

Don't regret visiting this Keys historical classic. Just don't plan to go for their seafood. It's really a steak place. The ice cream and sorbet is made by a little old lady and is amazing. A must order for dessert.
