Thanksgiving Brunch was fabulous! Thank you to all of the resort staff for making this a memorable experience. Myles, Hines and Daniela are always a pleasure. Food was outstanding especially the bouillabaisse. One for the books!

Was looking forward to a nice meal while on vacation. The service was good but unfortunately the food was a bit less than desirable. Steak and sides were lacking in seasoning at all it would seem and the lobster tail was very over cooked. We did have a nice chat with the manager and he was very helpful. The resort is lovely and the restaurant is pleasant so hopefully the food will improve.

Food was excellent, they were slow to seat us even though we had a reservation. It was not crowded in the dining room.I think they might be short on staff. Overall still very nice.

We were at Hawks Cay for the weekend, we were told the restaurant was amazing when we checked in. Come to find out when we arrived at Sixty-One Prime, they only had a third of their menu available and very limited plus the servers (Almost all great) were ones serving in the Hotel’s Pool area and Breakfast hours. To have these servers working almost twelve hours is criminal and ineffective. This is not even mentioning that they are not getting paid what they deserve, you can see it in them and all I hope is that like me, we show them appreciation by giving them a lot more in gratuity since the establishment is not.

Reservation was not acknowledged. Server only came to our table twice. Consequently, manager had to takeover and act as a server. Manager was doing the work of its servers. Apparently, servers were hired from a temp agency and just their for a paycheck.

The bar so close to the dinning area is a problem, we were sitting at the farthest table form the bar and the noise was just too much, i specified in our reservation we were celebrating my wife b-day and that wasn't even acknowledged. i don't think they paid attention to the reservation system

Food was good and our server (Denise) was very pleasant and friendly

Good food but NOT an upscale experience was you would expect, pries are definitely upscale

Good food, mehh ambiance, and poor value. Serving staff were all very attentive and kind. Our lobster was large and tasty, the steak quality was a 4.5/5 stars. The french onion soup served in the onion was tasty and aesthetically pleasing but a very small portion. The ambience feels like an extension of the brightly lit lobby, and the price of the food did not match up to the overall experience. It's clear that they have a bit of a monopoly on food and drink around Duck Key. It didn't feel good to spend $72 on an a la carte lobster tail and $68 on a 6-8oz filet served with a small side of mashed potatoes. Oh, we also were charged $28 each for our espresso martinis. If they prices were lower by $12-20 per item I would have felt that the experience was much more valuable and I would recommend it to a friend.

Excellent food and service. The staff was very courteous and made us feel so welcomed and cared for. Food was perfect, appetizers and main courses were delicious.
The resort is not full and the attention to detail was above average. Always an option at Hawks Cay after several days on fish and seafood.

Overpriced to put it simply. Salad only had one dressing option so if you don’t like blue cheese don’t bother. Had better steak at Ruth Chris and the mashed potatoes came out cold. Bar tenders were extremely light handed with the cocktails so stick to beer or wine to get your money’s worth. Will stay at Hawks Cay again, but I will be dining off site.

Food was good, service was fair. We waited at the table for 10-15 mins before greeted by server and given water. The food was tasty but you expect more for a $275 bill for 2.

Food was ok but not worth what it cost. I had better tasting food and bigger portions at a comparable restaurant the night before. It is was 25% less on cost. The server was great though. Do not get the chocolate cake.

We booked Sixty one Prime for our 51 anniversary on June 21 . I told the hostess when we arrived. Nothing was done by the restaurant to celebrate this, very disappointing. My sister in law ordered the cauliflower “steak” which was tasteless . Our server, Tristan was wonderful.

There was a screaming child and management did nothing to make the parents shut the kid up. They should have made one of the parents leave with the child. The parents must be idiots to let the kid scream so much and so long in an expensive restaurant It was on June 12th so if they happen to see this review…go to HELL.

Sixty prime was a very good fine dinning experience out here in the middle keys. It was rather hard to find, no signage whatsoever. Eating at numerous fine dinning restaurants the food and drinks were a bit steeply priced. Good overall.
