Description: Hot Tin Roof features bright vibrant colors indicative of the overall style of the Ocean Key Resort & Spa. The restaurant's 3,000 square feet of dining features indoor seating for 60 and an outdoor deck overlooking Key West Harbor, accommodating up to 40 people. The restaurant's lounge, Stage Door, serves a unique selection of themed signature cocktails and is highlighted with a custom-designed mural by Key West artist Jeff Beal. "It's a melange of tastes and fragrances, combining traditional Florida foods with Latin, Caribbean and tropical influences. It's funky, fun, and fresh with a broad range of tastes and sensations. The restaurant features a relaxed elegance with dramatic water and sunset views.

When a restaurant charges between $30 and $40 for an entree, one would think they would put out the best they could. The view is great, the service is good, the mixed drinks and bartender is fabulous, but the food, wish I would have dined elsewhere for my husbands birthday. His beef rib entree was cold and nauseating, and grouper entree was swimming in coconut sludge. We ate it and didn't complain because we are in the business and it was a birthday, but buyer beware.

We often stay at the Ocean Key Resort and the Hot Tin Roof is part of the resort. I love having breakfast outside in the most beautiful, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere you can find in Key West. A lovely breeze blows in from the water and it is such a great start to your day. You will find something on the menu that will keep you coming back. We've also enjoyed dinner at the Hot Tin Roof and you can watch the famous Key West sunsets from your table. Dining is available inside or out so you are always comfortable. Our waiter for dinner was Oleg and he couldn't have been more pleasant with his beautiful smile and his desire to make our experience special. Our dinners were indeed something to remember. We have never been unhappy with a meal at the Hot Tin Roof. The chef is innovative and it is obvious that he takes great pride in offering only the best for his guests.

We had an excellent dinner here at sunset (of course) on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was only about half full so it was nice and quiet. We opted to sit inside because of the humidity but we still had a great view through the window and we were told that we were welcome to take photos on the deck if we wished to do so.

The baked goat cheese appetizer with peppers was wonderful and served with a bread basket featuring three different types of bread. My vegetarian risotto was nice though a bit oversalted; his filet was cooked perfectly and served with a delicious spicy potato. The cocktail menu is very creative.

Our server Oleg (I *think* this was his name; he is originally from Romania and has gorgeous blue eyes!) was always there when we needed him and did an excellent job taking care of us. Not only did he recommend certain menu items, he even told us about water sports for us to consider during our next trip to Key West!

All in all, an excellent way to finish our long weekend in Key West.

Fabulous food and service! Highly recommended. The room service the restaurant offers in the Ocean Key is also excellent, the service is still fantastic even in the comfort of your room.
