Waitress very friendly and she made good recommendations. I had the cast iron mahi-mahi. My wife ordered coconut shrimp. Both meals were very good. The Mac n cheese side is outstanding! The marinated mushrooms were also good. I would recommend this restaurant.

We buy a jar every time we are in the Keys! We also make this one of our stops for dinner each time we are in Key Largo. Service is always wonderful and the food is delicious. Our daughter loved the fish fingers!
