This was our best meal of our trip! Absolutely perfect! We all had lobster (in several different ways) and all four of us loved our meals. And the bananas foster for dessert was heavenly. The ambience is lovely though they did have to have the plastic sheeting down on the outside porch area due to the wind. Can't say enough... More

We went for dinner when the Christmas boat parade was about to take place. We had a great table on the outdoor balcony for a great view of the boats. We ordered the lobster, it was good but the sides were a little weak for a restaurant of this caliber. My wife had the filet mignon, it was cooked right... More

They don't call it a lobster house for nothing! My husband and I both ordered the lobster tails oscar style. They were outstanding. I'm surprised the restaurant was so empty on a busy weekend. The food was superb and the wine selections were great.

This place was the perfect stop for lobster. We had amazing appetizers (bisque and scallops) and then the lobster dishes were all wonderful. In my opinion, considering they were all local, it was a bit overpriced. But if you're not worried about spending, then I would definitely recommend this place. Cocktails were good too!

We almost passed on this place thinking it would be an overpriced tourist trap. So glad we didn't and we went back the next night. Everyone enjoyed their ribeye steaks, I had some sort of lobster dish that was delicious. The second night we got the stone crab claw appetizers. It was 30 bucks a claw but I just had... More

We had eaten lunch downstairs the day before and I wanted to treat my father to great seafood, and this places comes highly recommended on this site. Get reservations early. It books out quickly. It's a big place and offers outdoor dining on a balcony. Ask for that in your reservation if you fancy that. Otherwise you'll be staring at... More

My family and I were looking forward to have dinner at this restaurant since we all love seafood. I live on an island in the archipelago. The waiter did a great job to deliver a high standard of service. My starter which was a tuna tartare, one of my favorites, was amazing and tasted delicious. However, the entrée was a... More

Has to be the worst food in Key West. The Chef needs to look for another line of work. The server was great. We asked about the problems in the Kitchen and the answer was the Chef is the Human Resources Boy Friend. I had the Hog Fish which is the Dover Sole of the Keys. Over Cooked Very dry... More
