We were staying at the quieter end of Duval, and happened upon this WONDERFUL GEM! The food was presented to each of us hot and in abundance! The “hog fish” is worth a try, light white and flaky! The Niçoise salad with tuna was out...More

We stopped for a leisurely, late lunch and were very pleased with our choice! Marcella was a fun and lovely waitress, my smoked salmon and my cousin's shrimp salad were perfect. We finished the excellent meal with a shared key lime tart which we savored...More

This is the one can't-miss place in Key West. Seafood mainly, some burgers/steaks. Food is great, look for the specials. Unlike at many places, they actually are special. Hogfish, scallops w/ seared foie gras, etc. They have a good selection of wines by the glass,...More

I read reviews for this restaurant. Very high reviews, but when you arrive, it’s very small. Had high expectations because of the reviews. Let me tell you....it did not disappoint. If you’re going to go anywhere in key west to have a delicious meal....go here!

One of the best places to eat in Key West. A small quaint restaurant to have a romantic dinner or great hamburger. Delicious beer selection and fresh seafood plates.

Went based on TripAdvisor reviews and they had just reopened after being closed for a few months. I am so thankful they were! We shared the cheese plate—excellent and very filling, enjoyed ice cold beer and 2-for-1 mimosas, and shared the wagyu burger. Delicious. We...More

Delicious. Stopped in at an off time (4pm), was seated promptly in an area of my choice. Service quick, by the same hostess. Alcohol is limited to wine and beer, which was a bit of a bummer. Had the spinach-goat cheese salad, which was fabulous....More
