We really wanted to enjoy our dining experience. It was a busy Monday evening just after sunset, and the wait staff and bar tends were really running. We put in our drink orders and food order at the same time, and got our drinks after about 10 minutes. We watched as the other tables around waited and eventually get served,... More

The tuna was delicious and had us returning for a second night! Decent beer and wine selection, but no liquor.

We arrived in Key Largo after a long day of travel and went across the street to the nearest place to eat and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and selection of the meal as well as the server who was great! He offered us a pepper jelly that was amazing as we sat under a beautiful tree with small... More

We had a delicious dinner at Ballyhoo's for my husband's birthday while staying in Key Largo. Absolutely spectacular, makes your tastebuds dance - but quite a bit overpriced. You do have to experience it when traveling through. The playlist that was playing overhead was even amazing! And when they tell you that they have the best Key Lime Pie in... More

There is very little to commend this restaurant. It exists in the median of Overseas Highway so the traffic noise overwhelms the eating experience which was very disappointing as well.

While the staff was very entertaining the food left a lot to be desired, we had the seafood platter which was really overcooked.

Came in just for the Key Lime pie and a local beer. The pie was FANTASTIC! Was very happy I did so. Staff was friendly and inviting.

We showed up early for dinner and were a bit bummed that we could not sit outside (large party). One of the first folks to sit inside. Had a fun time chatting with the lady behind the bar and our waiter. Great homemade sangria ( the rose one tastes like fruit punch). The seafood is excellent. Fresh fish and other... More

We chose this place bc it was literally across Route 1 from the place we stayed, so we had modest expectations. But we were pleasantly surprised, the service was friendly, the food was excellent and a terrific value! The fish & seafood were fresh and nicely prepared, and the skirt steak was the best I've had in ages - and... More

Great steak, apps and seafood! Not crowded. Outdoor or indoor dining. We walked over several time during our stay and were never disappointed.

Thank MJ T
