“Great steak, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Having read some other reviews, I was a little worried that the portions may be too large for a family with teenagers. I called to discuss how flexible they were about sharing and was convinced to give it a try. We were delighted. It is a lovely restaurant but without being stuffy or pretentious. We basically had three meals between four of us and the staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. The quality was superb and really not too expensive for what we got. Well worth reserving a table as even on a week night it got busy.

“Don't Order Sides!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We had a great meal at Ziggy's but we massively over-ordered. First of all we made the massive mistake of ordering starters - very quickly we realised that we would not be able to eat these AND a main, so had the starters packed up to take home (we ate them the next day for lunch and they were still DELICIOUS!). The second mistake was that we ordered two sides to go with our two steaks - the steaks were HUGE and beautifully cooked, but we didn't even have a bite of one of our sides! Perhaps it would have been better to have shared one steak. We asked for the sides to be packed up for us to take home, but sadly when we arrived home it seemed that they hadn't made it into the take-out bag, but never mind! We really enjoyed our meal, but beware of the portions!

“Once Again .....Upscale and Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

This place has become a traditional stop for our group. Its always THE upscale dinning highlight of our Keys Adventure. Once again, Steaks cooked to perfection, Awesome Lobster Mac and Cheese, great service, great drinks. Decor is kind of traditional, definitely not the Keys Fish House norm. Its a great refuge from the usual outdoor fried fish sandwiches and beer sports bar type places. We will definitely return here again on our next trip. If this review helps your planning, please leave me a helpful vote....ENJOY

“DRESSED UP KEYS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Surprised with the white table cloths and dressier atmosphere however, Keys attire is appropriate. Big food, steaks and fish plates. Large servings. My salad was lovely with goat cheese cranberries and walnuts. It fed the entire table. The table next to us had amazing looking filets. My son's steak - rib eye - was flavorful. Order the alligator bites to start. Sorry, didn't make it to dessert. Reservations suggested as the crowd was picking up as we left.

Huge excellent Filet and the au gratin potatoes were to die for. Great service. The drinks were great and the price was too.
