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.

    Most importantly, our food was delicious. We had coconut crusted grouper and the whole snapper. Loved them both, so I’d say that we have no regrets going. On the downside, I felt like everything was just a little bit unkempt — dirty floor tiles, old floor mats everywhere, and the tables were cluttered with sticky bottles of hot sauce and dirty salt and pepper. The marina location is amazing - great to look out and see the boats and smell the ocean. But this place could use some visioning and higher standards.

    We heard many recommendations from locals of this restaurant so we had to try it… My daughter and I EACH ordered a 12oz steak and I think both of our orders put together added up to 12oz. Steak was overcooked contrary to our temperature request. I ordered an old-fashioned and after a tiny sip, found it disappointing— a dash of bourbon, a lot of citrus and quite water-diluted. Yeah, far from decent. I asked immediately that it be replaced with margarita. Btw, I was charged for the old-fashioned. Was disappointed by our first dinning experience, sorry, not a fan.

    Service was good but food came too quickly. We spent about 5 minutes on our apps when the mains came. Food was very low quality for a high price. Shrimp were from frozen. Lobster tail was way over cooked. At a very premium price.

    The food was good but not great compared to other restaurants we’ve visited. Our server was fine. We didn’t like the restaurant’s policy of not splitting checks as there were only 3 of us, a couple and a single. We’ve been to other restaurants where we’ve had up to 6 couples and bills were easily split.

    Alonzo’s was recommended by a friend. I sat at the bar for a pre dinner cocktail ~ bartender was NOT friendly and after asking twice for a water to go with my martini he could not deliver. We sat inside at a table for dinner. The conch fritters were good as well as the whole red snapper. Black beans were soupy and mostly liquid. The acoustics & the yahoo patrons were over the top! Safe to say IF I went back I would sit outside & not order stone crab as the market on a pound was $75 ~ this 40+ year Floridian was NOT paying that!?!

    Our server Debra was extremely friendly and attentive, unfortunately the service did not match the food. The shrimp tacos were completely overwhelmed by the onion in the pico de gallo, and the Mayo BLT was the most dry and tasteless piece of fish I have ever eaten. I will say that the steamed clam were very good. All in all, a very disappointing meal for our last night in Key West.

    Went to Alonzo’s with friends our last night in Key West. Sat outside with view of harbor and Tori took great care of us! Had super cocktails, baked oysters three ways, lobster tails and stacked snapper—all cooked to perfection. Great for people watching too—would recommend to anyone visiting the area!

    This is the first time I have dined at Alonzo's. We dined with friends who requested this particular restaurant. While it was a good evening with good service and good food, we will most likely choose other restaurants when down in the marina area. Two of us had the coconut fried grouper which is served with steakhouse fries. Neither of us could tell it wasn't simply battered and deep fried fish. One of our party chose the ribeye steak and the other the whole fried snapper. Steak was done as requested. Snapper seemed a bit over fried (as did our grouper). We dined out on the deck of the marina - so it was enjoyable watching people walk by and the boats docked, with some coming in for the day. Our wait was pleasant, but seemed a bit overwhelmed with customers. Overall, okay.

    The staff was kind and very efficient! Right before our reservation a patron had a medical emergency- which they handled with class and resumed normal function very quickly (it was very jarring and the staff was very professional) our waiter was helpful but did not loiter over us, waters were always full and he checked in multiple times. Kitchen was fast and they produced absolutely delicious plates! It was a fantastic dining experience!

    I made this reservation MONTHS before and they were out of all except one, for an oyster bar this was a big let down:(((((( I was so excited for Oysters so it was a really big letdown. We were interested in eating we oysters and feel like if you’re an oyster bar and you’re out of oysters maybe you should alert your guests. It was a really big bummer :((( and to top it off our server wasn’t helpful. Didn’t care what we ordered. Wasn’t interested in us at all.

    I asked to be seated outside instead of inside which they were able to do, but weren't too thrilled about it. Our waitress was great and made good suggestions on food. I should have gotten more of the oysters she suggested as they were phenomenal. The mahi mahi I ordered was a little dry. Overall, it was a good experience.
