Disappointed that stone crabs are in such short supply this season--we had to settle for lobster tails and seafood platters--poor us--food was great.

We're glad you enjoyed the lobster, and we are disappointed the stone crab is in short supply also.We hope it gets better through the rest of the season.

We recently visited Key Large and ate fish at many great restaurants. But the best fish dish we had was the skillet fish dinner at Ballyhoos. It was excellent. Clean restaurant & good food.
