Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

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."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner here so much, that we brought my brother and sister-in-law back for brunch on Sunday. Everyone was friendly and helpful, from the hostesses who offered us drinks while we waited, to the wait staff who accommodated our multiple dietary needs (vegetarian, gluten-free). The food was plentiful, beautifully prepared, and delicious. Being right on the beach, we expected traditional beach fare, but we were pleasantly surprised by the variety of choices on the menu. In addition, the view of the ocean and the sound of the surf added to the ambience. We highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting Key West. We will certainly be returning on our next visit!"

  • "Upon arrival, we were expecting "crab shack" fare given the casual, loud and open air ambience. However, the food was fantastic and matched the beauty of the view from our beach front table. Fresh ingredients, creatively and seamlessly matched, came in hearty helpings. We had the Mahi Salad, the Seared Tuna, and the Snapper over bok choy. All were excellent. New Orleans is our usual dining out venue, so we are not strangers to good food."

  • "We really enjoyed the location of this restaurant, right on the ocean. The food wasn't that great. I ordered a filet, medium, which was extremely dry. I'd also skip the lobster mac & cheese, just ok. The service was great. I'll likely go back but try something more of a 'staple' from their menu."

  • "We had breakfast, lunch and dinner there during our trip! Good prices, great food, huge portions. It is nice to be right on the water- very few places are on the beach in Key West. If you are in Old Town, it is easy walking around there, and a great place to watch the sunset. We will return."

  • "Our first trip to Key West. Picked this restaurant for its location and online recommendations. The restaurant itself was pretty much what we expected in terms of its beachfront location. We ordered fish entrees. Disappointing. One looked like it came out of a box - unrecognizable, dry and underseasoned. The other was also underseasoned and tasteless. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall an interesting place but spoiled by mediocre food and poor value."
