On our first evening in Key West, we took the hotel shuttle to Mallory Square. Because of the ambulatory limitations of 2 members of our party of 4, we looked for a restaurant close by. The Red Fish Blue Fish restaurant was virtually right in front of us, so we decided to give it a try. We were warmly greeted... More

Red Fish Blue Fish is a nice, quiet, relaxing place near Mallory Square and Duvall Street. The food is great. Be sure to try the Mallory Mussels!

Visited this restaurant with a group so our selection was limited. The food and service was good. The roosters seemed to rule the roost here.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch because it was close when we got caught in a rain storm. We were glad we did. The food was excellent and even though it was raining we could eat outside because they have giant umbrellas covering the outdoor seating.

Salad was so fresh and very large portion. My daughter had kids chicken fingers w/ fries. Very good quailty and served in a cute boat. I would love to come back... More

Nice gentleman at the entrance helped us understand Happy Hour offerings and getting to where we needed to go after our meal. He also put a stop to the serious construction noise on the roof that was drowning out conversation. Fish tacos, salmon and shrimp were all good. Consistent with Key West prices. Convenient place to eat from the Mallory... More

We had the conch fritters, oysters on the half shell and some fried plantains. We really enjoyed all of it but the service was painfully slow.

So happy to hear that really enjoyed all the food you had with us! Sorry to hear you found the service a little slow. Not sure what happened. Sometimes the oyster shucker gets a overwhelmed and it takes a little longer for our fresh oysters to be served. Hopefully that doesn't deter you from stopping in again for some more... More

I had the shrimp scampi, which I did not care for. It was in a very creamy sauce. It was more like an Alfredo sauce. I did not care for it.

RFBFManager, Manager at Red Fish Blue Fish, responded to this review

Sorry to hear that you personally did not like our Shrimp Scampi preparation. Most people love it and it is one of our most popular dishes. It is made with a huge portion of succulent shrimp in a rich fresh lemon and white wine sauce with just the right amount of butter and yes, as you describe, a touch of... More

Restaurant next to mallory square so very handy for dinner after watching the sun set. Mixed seafood grill was good and fresh, loved the scallops! Afterwards we had a key lime pie and it was just the right balance of sweetness to tart. Very good thanks.
