Great views but food did not match service or views. I had breakfast there twice. Asked for English muffin ( how hard is it to TOAST) one. First day I u dears took as I didn't make a request. The second day specifically asked and not sure muffin saw any heat.

This is a very elegant restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. We sat outside near the docks and had an amazing view of the sunset at dinner time. The service was great and the servers had such good manners. The food is a little pricey, but you know it's going to be good and worth it.

Loved the restaurant, food was delicious but they could use a little more light. Menus were back lit which we loved. But our table was lit only by small candles on the table. Wait staff was perfect, our group asked for many changes that were accommodated without question. Best Key Lime pie in Key West. Our group ordered it every... More

Good service and location on the balcony with great live music from the pier in the background. Food is very mainstream, you get what you order without any surprise. For me this was very disappointing since I really like good food, but this was just boring. For the price I expected a much more.

My husband and I travel a lot and have been to key west several times. In addition to the classics ie Louie's backyard, we are always looking for a new place to try. Despite recommendations, we were initially leery of Hot Tin Roof as it is a "resort" restaurant. Everything was fabulous! The view (beautiful outdoor space to watch the... More

My wife and I tried the Hot Tin Roof for breakfast and it did not disappoint...She had the blueberry pancakes and I had the eggs Benedict and they were both very good. The service was also pretty good too. If you're looking for something that offers a great ocean view and tasty food then visit this place!

We stayed at the Ocean Key Resort and had dinner at this restaurant on our first night in Key West. Food and service were great. Dinner was a little expensive, but very good. We also ate breakfast here and we're equally happy with the food and service. Breakfast prices were more reasonable. The view from the restaurant was very nice.... More
