Seafood
Long before there was a boardwalk, friends Alonzo Cothron & Berlin Felton’s original establishment was a fish house. Boats would pull up right outside and throw the fish straight in!
We’ve changed a little since then, but the most important thing remains the same - guests can still kick back and experience the freshest, locally caught seafood in one hand, a cold beverage in the other, soak in the view, and watch the world go by.

We had outdoor reservations for three at 5:45 pm. The space was shaded and perfect temp. I am very sorry I cannot remember our server’s name, but she was TERRIFIC! The food was great. It was happy hour and we ordered some things off that menu. The Old Fashioned was VERY good. The $2 oysters were also very good. We had a dozen. For dinner we sort of shared a “Lobster Tini” off the happy hour menu and a Snapper Stack, and Seafood Diavolo. All were perfect and complimentary. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was good but nothing great. The service was excellent, but man is that a noisy restaurant. It would seem everyone there thinks they need to scream at each other while talking.

One of the few good Key West eateries devoid of musicians trying to prove they’re the loudest in town, ie. no ear plugs needed here. Our server Christine was fabulous. The key lime martinis, oysters and clams were excellent.

Entree was delicious, green beans were undercooked. Server was very friendly but didn't return after entree was served to check on beverages. Restaurant can be loud and if you sit outside adjacent to the other restaurants there is conflicting music between the multiple restaurants.

Very good seafood, love sitting outside and people watching. Great happy hour food & drinks. We were there for late lunch/ early dinner at 4 pm. Saw them Feeding the tarpons across the water. My husband always gets Mahi BLT , I get the Snapper Stack or Blackened Mahi Sandwich. The baked Oyster combo is amazing but the Oysters are quite small. We usually eat here once a month.

Service was slow and food mediocre. Jerk shrimp bowl too spicy & drunks not strained well. Waitress could have been more attentive for 8:30pm and the place was almost empty by end of meal

I would choose anyplace but here.
The tuna was very good.
The oyster $3.00 each and were just ok.
The seafood boil was very old.
I'm from Key West and was very disappointed. Friends came down on Key West express and the day was short. Food very 😞

View of the harbor was great. Oysters were very good. Calamari was the frozen kind and wasn't very good. Great place to watch the boats come and go, but overall probably would stick to the oysters and leave it at that.

Food was great, service was fast, but not rushed. The place was packed, and although we had booked, we still had to wait 20min for our table. I totally understand Saturday night rush, but being offered to get drinks at the bar while we waited for our table would have made it perfect. Great experience anyway. We will definitely be back.
