A key west classic. Grey venue and fantastic food. Sit by the pool for a quiet dining experience or right on rival street for craziness

John is an A-1 server
We had a very distanced outdoor table, temps were taken upon arrival, felt safe!
Crab cakes as good as ever, oysters Rockefeller very authentic with a hint of anise
The special steak was not very tender but sauces delicious
Enjoyed dining out!

The service person was mad that we were there at 9pm for dessert and drinks rather than dinner and treated us very poorly. Very disappointed that she took her frustration out on us even though no one came in for service after us. We even asked her if she wanted us to leave because she was so mad. Ugh!

One of my favorite restaurants here. The setting is gorgeous, the service is always impeccable, and the food is delicious. I’ve had breakfast and dinner here, always amazing. Even the dinner entertainment is great. I thought they were playing one of Frank Sinatra's records - nope, it was a live performance. I wound up moving tables to watch the act and stayed an extra hour.

Breakfast was awesome. 4 of us got 4 different items and nothing was a disappointment. But the best breakfast on the menu was Christopher’s Crab Cakes Benedict - by far the best Benedict I have ever had!

Perfect Christmas day dinner for two. Had a nice table off to the side, had the rib eye special that was terrific, my wife had her usual meat loaf both cooked to perfection. Service was very good and was able to have dinner at a relaxing rate, no push to get you out the door.

Our server, Les, was exceptional - he made sure that we were well taken care of, offered perfect food suggestions and recommendations, made sure there was always wine in the glass, and was a pleasure to interact with. And those food recommendations - he nailed it. The meal was prepared perfectly and full of flavor.

Exquisite from the curb to farewell. The sumptuous surroundings are surpassed only by the meal itself. Service was impeccable. I cannot recommend this place enough. The Stilton bleu cheese on the wedge was overflowing.The conch chowder was hearty and flavorful. Christopher’s Crab Cakes are ridiculous, however, my husband’s filet was perfection. We did not stay for the piano bar because we overate. We’ll be back Tuesday for another fine meal and stay for the entertainment. The bar area is beautiful and casually elegant with great views of Duval. Looking forward to a great night.
