Angler & Ale, a new restaurant where you can grab a waterfront table, dig into some of the Key’s favorite dishes, and wash it down with a frosty cold, fresh-from-the-tap brew. Better yet, bring in your own catch for a hook-and-cook feast prepared by our expert chefs. Great food. Cold beer. And fishing. Doesn’t get any better than that.

There is a lot of kid traffic which is to be expected because it's a resort, but the restaurant is REALLY noisy, and they give the kids frisbees. It's difficult to stomach spending $300 on dinner when you have to avoid flying frisbees.

We dined there for an early dinner on a Saturday. The service was great, my skirt steak was amazing and my son loved his pesto chicken, but my husband’s pork chop was flavorless and dry. Now, aside from all that, the entertainment singer was atrocious. I’m not exaggerating. He couldn’t sing, and it was so loud on the outdoor deck we couldn’t hear each other. And I cannot emphasize enough that he couldn’t sing. It made me sad and even two glasses of wine didn’t make it bearable. I beg of you Angler and Ale, please spare other diners the pain.

I felt the restaurant had a unique opportunity to sponsor a true Super Bowl party, but they did not. No discounts or fun football food. Very disappointed. Maybe another year there will be a Super Bowl in Miami and they will embrace it with specials.

The food and service were good but we were seated in a separate room that was very quiet and only a few tables with no atmosphere.

We had a terrible experience with the host stand. Despite having the same reservations as another party and arriving before them, our reservation was skipped over and they were seated before us. When I asked the host, she said it was “because they had kids”. We also had 3 kids in our party (3, 5 & 7).

Another complaint is that they seem to be out of a lot of their wine & beer selections. We experienced the same thing when visiting the year before.

Food is excellent, but very pricey.. Took close to 1 1/2 hours to get our food. Realize it was their busy season, but maybe that’s when they need to add more chefs. Our waitress was great and we made sure we didn’t complain, because it wasn’t her fault.

Food was fair atmosphere was loud in a cafeteria kind of way decor was spartan with a few nautical themed accessories thrown in for good measure but it was the service that was so horrendous! Sat there for close to an hour and a half waiting for our food. This in and of itself would not have been too bad if someone would have at least come to check on us. We couldn’t even order additional cocktails while we waited! First bad experience I’ve every had at a restaurant in the Keys.

Horrible service, we brought our own fish in to be cooked. Numerous people came by to ask our name to identify which fish we brought in. We waited an hour for our main course. We ordered desserts and waited 45 minutes for them to tell us they were out of cheesecake. We asked for the ticket and waited another 15 minutes for the ticket. Very disappointing the facility was beautiful

Service was extremely slow. We needed to ask twice for our waiter. We were never offered refills on beverages, or asked how our food was prepared. Food was ok, better than many other options in the keys, but my steak was nearly raw (ordered medium rare), one of the peel & eat shrimp was turned (definitely not fresh shrimp) and made one of my party feel ill. All in all, could not recommend to anyone, at least not anyone I liked.

Food was delicious but the turn around time from the kitchen was a bit of a challenge as we waited for the better part of 30 minutes for our late lunch... to be fair we did arrive at 3pm post the lunch hour and pre dinner. Ambience of outdoor eating by far offset the wait as the weather and view were special... would definitely visit again if we were in the neighborhood...

The food was absolutely delicious. We had the lobster mac and cheese. It was so creamy with big chunks of lobster. The broiled lobster was fantastic too. For drinks, I recommend the El Dorado or the Tidal Wave. Both are great. We ate there 3 times on our 5 day trip.

Had the most amazing waiter. He was ultra attentive and listened to my needs. When he found out I wasn’t feeling well he immediately grabbed ginger ale and brought to the table and even gave me a glass to go.

We had the conch chowder, conch fritters, an amazing wedge salad with a grilled key west shrimp!!
100% recommend angler an ale. Everything was perfect.
