We come here with our kids at least once a month and this is my first review. We have always had great service and great food. Depending on what time you go, there may be a wait but the food is worth it. Especially the crab cake sandwich and calamari (no tentacles!) It is a kicked back atmosphere right on the inter-coastal so it feels like your on vacation. Perfect family place or hang at the bar with live music without the kids. If you live in Florida or are just visiting it really is a great place to go. If you like crab cakes theirs are AMAZING!

Since I first tried Old Key Lime's crabcakes many years ago, I have searched high and low for any better, to no avail. You wouldn't expect it based on everything else about the restaurant. Most of the entrees are average compared to other Florida waterside restaurants. It's an old, rustic place with a large, always busy, mostly outside bar. The owner grew up in Maryland, say the servers, and that's where he learned how to make the BEST crabcakes. This time when I ordered them, I will say they were lukewarm and therefore, disappointed a bit. Still...the best.

Great food and great service. Outside seating has a great view of the water. There is also a great bar.

Atmosphere... waterfront views...nature...wildlife...fresh air...a shark hanging down from the rafters... casual dining in a restaurant without 4 walls!
This historic, quaint bit of Floridiana is everything original and unique about just being in the warm climes. Sitting in the open air thatched restaurant, enjoying taste casual dining in a relaxed atmosphere, catered to by a caring friendly staff, watched over by the guardian cat as pelicans settle in on docks, barely noticing small boats come and go....awaiting the perfect sunset... This is the life. All that's missing is a selfie to send north, and a T-shirt from the gift shop and your memorable visit is complete!

This restaurant has been in Lantana for many many years. It caters to a younger beer
Drinking crowd. The view from the dock are enjoyable. There is no problem is parking.
Their fish sandwiches are very tasty especially their crab cakes. Try their soups. They all very delicious. We found it a bit too noisy for us but the service was good and the pricing was right.
