Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant continues to be our favorite dining spot in Key West. Great views with ocean breezes. The service is excellent! The drinks are delicious! The coconut shrimp are the best! Take a walk on the pier in daylight. We will return."

  • "The location is fun - huge outdoor dining with covered patio that sits literally on the beach. Some diners had quiet time while their kids played in the sand. The food was hit or miss. I had a simple grilled Mahi that was quite good. I can't recall what my companion had but he didn't like it as much, wished he had gotten something prepared more simple. There was a wedding in the far half of the patio but it was not bothersome, they were screened off and it added to the fun atmosphere."

  • "Celebrated our 30 th Wedding anniversary at this restaurant and it could not have been more romantic! Service and food excellent! Definitely make a reservation so you can sit by beach. Even though open air seating, fans made it comfortable. Can't wait to return!"

  • "Southernmost Beach Cafe has pretty good food, but the prices are a little high for what it is. As far as the seafood goes, I would say there are other Key West restaurants that have better/fresher food. However, this place is on a small (man-made) beach so you have a (limited) view of the water. Although we came for dinner, I would recommend coming here for lunch instead. The truffle fries were delicious, as were the mussels."

  • "Made a reservation here for our anniversary - expecting a nice upscale restaurant - not at all upscale. While it was ocean front, our view was of a couple making out on the beach and a tractor hauling seaweed off the beach while enjoying the awful smell of seaweed or fish or ???? Our waitress was not friendly and somewhat of a prima donna (while I'm sure my husband enjoyed her SHORT-shorts, I did not), they were out of the wine I ordered, my husband's fish entree was very overcooked and dried out and we definitely will not be returning here for dinner. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!"

  • "We drove down to Key West from Toronto and we weren't sure what to expect. We loved Key West and had the best dinner we've had in a long time at the Southernmost Beach Café. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu selection and provided us with some great touring advice for Key West. The filet was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth. The mahi mahi and snapper were fresh and fabulous. We will definitely be returning!"

  • "We booked a table for 8:00 pm for after our wedding ceremony. There was at least 1 other wedding there. We were slightly early, and were seated on time. The restaurant was still quite busy, when we got to the table the entire experience felt rushed. From the server to the food, everything seemed rushed."

  • "I would give this place five stars if they had a gluten-free menu. Being pregnant with a food allergy is no fun when you're on vacation. Southernmost was beautiful inside and out, just wish the staff had a clue about gluten:( Everyone else in our group had decent meals. The hummus was good with a Turkish flavor. Great view of the ocean."

  • "We had our Wedding dinner here w/family and friends. Very friendly and attentive staff. Can't beat the open air seating as well as the unique menu choices. Great location at the opposite end of Duval St. which is more secluded and quiet. We will for sure dine here again hopefully for our Anniversary!"

  • "Open air dining overlooking the public beach on the Atlantic end of Duval. I expected average food from a high volume restaurant in a tourist town. Wrong. This restaurant over-delivered. All four in our party were impressed by their entrees. Deftly cooked fresh fish and excellent service. The wine list won't impress the oenophile, but I appreciated the availability of well-selected, value-priced wines. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Lots of good local, fresh seafood choices - topped only by its setting on the beach. Great conch fritters! Great service. Food preparations are Caribbean style. This was our go-to restaurant during our stay in Key West - pleasant place and offerings for multiple dinners and lunches."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Excellent food and our wait staff was energetic and knowledgeable. The front staff had a bit of an attitude when we asked for a change of table - they sat us right in front of the kitchen. But they did change the table even though it was a Sat night. Great location on the beach with lovely view."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "A nice place where you can watch the sunset right on the beach. The food was served promptly and prepared well. If you are looking for place with good food, a bit off the beaten path, this is it. We will return again."

The staff treated us like royalty and gave us a special champagne toast on the house. Though not your typical wedding reception spot, it was perfect for our casual Key West style."
