The food here is tremendous. Eat upstairs and you can look over the harbor. Service could be better, but is adequate.

Imagine bringing a group of 38 for a dinner that you actually had the reservation for the next night? The Commodore didn't miss a beat! Not only did our guests not notice, but the restaurant manager and staff quickly set us up in a private dining room. The food, wine and service was 1st class! Our guests raved about their... More

There are hundreds of restaurants in Key West and you can't try than all but this one was a little above average. We stopped here after walking around in the rain for a few hours. Food was good and both the food and drink prices were reasonable. Great for a quick lunch.

My wife and I and three other couples ate at the Commodore for my birthday. It was a fantastic experience. All eight of us loved our dinner. I had ordered the New York steak Chinatown and it was very good and cooked to my request of medium rare. When you go to Key West and want a fine dining experience,... More

After a fishing charter we brought some snapper and grouper. We had the restaurant deep fry half and blacken the rest. It was awesome! They did an amazing job frying the fish with a light batter that wasn't soggy and served each of us with tartar sauce and a vegetable medley with rice pilaf. The blackened fish was spicy, yet...

We stopped in for dinner and were so pleased that we returned for lunch 2 days later. Location with harbor views is ideal. The place is comfortably open and is a little more upscale than the many older venues in Key West. The only thing that seemed odd is that there is only 2 x 1 seater restrooms downstairs. A... More

Stopped in there for their half hour happy hour specials. The appetizers were good and the snapper was the best I have ever eaten anywhere!
