“A Locals' Bar”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We dropped in here for lunch whilst driving past. Certainly not set up for tourists but we were made to feel welcome. The bar was no frills and again cold beer was on tap. We ordered food with some trepidation and whilst basic - wings and prawns - we were very pleasantly surprised.

“The best place to watch football in the Keys”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

This is where all the local turn out for football in force. The OV has plenty of good sports bar food and room for kids to run around and even a pool available to all guests. You can come by car or boat!

“GREAT BARTENDRESS, BAD FOOD”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

We sat outside at the Tiki bar. The bartendress Gloria came right over. She was superb !!!!! We received our drinks right away and Gloria took our order and we enjoyed our drinks. I had to go to the restroom so you have to go into the bar. Well all I heard was arguing from the kitchen area and the bar smelt like old beer bottles. I stopped at the bar to ask where the restrooms were and waited till the female bartender made herself a drink to find out where the "JOHN" was and I me john it was so dirty and smelly, the worst I had ever seen, I held it. Went outside told my husband what happened & we paid for our drinks and left !!!!!! Too bad I could not transport Gloria up to Michigan at our favorite place because Gloria and the view are the only thing that place has going for it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Good food and ability to watch nba finals”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 via mobile

Food was good! Staff was very friendly and helped us on our request for the finals with sound... Very important, drinks were refilled constantly and even making a pot of coffee at 10.30 pm wasn't a hazzle! Will def be back with following visitors

Great breakfast and very good service. Really pretty setting on the water. Will stay here again. Our stay was actually in Dec. of 2010 but the dates don't go back that far on this review site.
