We live here and have stopped a couple of times over last several years as a place for a good mojito and appetizers. Unfortunately, last 2 visits have not been good as service has been poor. The drinks are fine but we were actually told "there will be a 20-30 minute wait for appetizers". There were only 2 other parties there. And we were not asked again if we'd like to order food. They can't seem to handle bringing food from main restaurant to Zane Grey upstairs, even conch fritters and premade smoked fish dip! We left hungry!

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Key West. It is located on the top floor of the Bass Pro shop. Great place to grab a drink and relax! Friendly staff!

Nice bar at a busy tourist spot. This bar/lounge is a hidden gem and has a great old Florida keys atmosphere and indoor and outdoor seating as well as a bar seating. We only stayed for a drink but they offer food, the same menu as the larger restaurant downstairs. More for couples/adults. They also have live music depending on the night.

Love going to Zane Grey and having a drink outside on the patio (2nd floor). The view at sunset can't be beat. This time we stayed for a casual dinner that did not disappoint. The only negative to the evening was our edgy waitress. When we asked her to put down the shade part way because the sun was both hot and glaring and they do have special sun shades she said "well if I can find the rod but the sun will be going down". Well the sun wasn't going down for another hour and they did have special shades for the purpose requested. A question about a specialty drink seemed an annoyance as did having to serve that evening. The hostess and other employees were friendly. Our tip reflected her poor attitude and I regret I did not tell the manager but when out with friends it is sometimes easier to just leave a small tip and hope the waitress learns from that. Her attitude, however, would indicate she is a slow learner. Again, nice spot for a casual dinner and drink while you watch the sun set.

We were starving and pulled into Zane's with modest expectations. That modesty proved accurate. Setting on balcony overlooking bay is quite nice. Food is thoroughly mediocre (and suspecting such we limited our lunch order to fish tacos and a cheeseburger). Service was friendly but sadly lacking. Turns out there are many much higher rated spots close by. Wish we had consulted Trip Advisor!
