“Excellent Steak House”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This place is so good. Its Delmonico is out of control juicy, hot and perfect blend of spices. The maddog wedge is the best wedge salad ever. Their blue cheese dressing is out of this world best blue cheese dressing ever. Their Tuna wakami is good but I like thinly sliced and this is more like a poke style. The macaroni truffles were great. The sides were decent sized to be shared. The jasmine rice was tasty and fresh. I love their bernaise sauce as well. BUT my fave is the hot lava chocolate cake with CHOCOLATE icecream. The service is good and the price is fair. Definitely a great place will be back over and over

“Fantastic Steaks and Lobster Mac N Cheese”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Great food. Amazing steak. Crispy on the outside, delicious on the inside. Perfect temp. Cooked perfectly. The road to Key West can be a good drive or not. We found ourselves stuck in traffic looking for a way out...and found Ziggy's! So glad we stopped and ate. It is pricey for certain and menu is a la carte. So adds up quickly. But, portion size are huge and full of flavor. The place get full fast. Indoor seating is taken up by locals making reservations. So call ahead and get a reservation, if possible. If not, there is seating (first come - first served) at the bar area.
They serve a very nice hot bread with a chees crust and also with honey butter. Worth the stop for certain.

“Vacation celebration of our anniversary!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was flawless. We arrived at prime dinner time without reservations. The manager, Dane, was so thoughtful that he was able to seat us. From the bacon wrapped shrimp, the perfect martini, the filet mignon with bernaise and sea scallops...it was all simply perfect.
Make reservations and GO.
Thanks, Dane, for the best anniversary dinner ever!

“Very good steak and chop house”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Very classy place. Food was outstanding. Bring your wallet though, the place isn't cheap. My fishing guide also said that it was his favorite restaurant on the island.

“Excellent steaks”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

I was desperate for a nice steak and tried Ziggy's on a recommendation, I was treated to probably the best steak I've had. The server was very honest and expalined that portion sizes, including sides were large, the steaks went from a 12oz Fillet upto a 24oz Porterhouse. I opted for the Fillet, medium rare, it was cooked to perfection (the server actually asks you to cut it in front of him to ensure you are happy with how it is cooked, which is a nice touch) and huge. The sweet potato fries actually tasted of sweet potato and were not overcooked or oily.
They have a great choice of wines from around the world.
We couldn't manage a dessert.
Staff were great.
Be warned though, it is expensive but compared with some of the other meals we had in the keys it was worth every cent, so treat yourself.
