Caribbean
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. Outdoor dining is by request only at time of seating.

    The price paid certainly did not match the food quality and taste at all. It took one hour to get our food from time of order to table. We arrived early at 5:30pm so the restaurant was not close to being full. We ordered the Churrasco Steak and Coconut Shrimp. The beans and rice were dried out and tasteless. The sauteed vegetables were not fully cooked and the carrots still had the green stems on them on several of the pieces on each of our plates. The coconut shrimp breading was mushy because it was not fully cooked. The Churrasco Steak was tough and hard to cut. The price of $160 for 3 dinners was not worth the it. I have gone to far superior restaurants in higher end places and paid the same price for a dining experience that was fabulous. Do not waste your money here!

    We were at the resort for thanksgiving. Angler & Ale offered a traditional Thanksgiving plate. The first plate we received was room temperature so we sent it back. The next plate was barely warmer but decided to keep it. The food was mediocre at best, nothing special. I wondered how a trained chef could serve this quality of food with good conscious, especially at $34 a plate. Pecan pie for dessert was equally as bad. Huge disappointment!

    Waiter forgot the soup and then ignored or didn’t hear my request to wrap it up for carryout. It then took a long time to get the soup. You would think soup would be ready and not take 15 minutes to package it

    We are in The Keys for a long weekend and came across this gem on Open Table. Keisha and the rest of the staff were welcoming and great! The clams were delicious. The conch chowder was hot and a bit spicy. Drinks were good and fish sandwiches had a perfect filet of grouper. I highly recommend. The view was beautiful as we sat on the patio.

    I have been to the restaurant many times over many years. Last night I had the Churassco Steak. It was not very good. Tough and hard to chew, I would recommend you replace that type of meat with another steak other than the Tomahawk for $92. Very disappointing. Service was excellent as was the Conch chowder. But the steak, the worst!

    I told them we were celebrating 2 birthdays and the waiter didn’t offer to sing or do anything special. Other restaurants we were going to reserve for offer that. It took a while for The waiter to come and take our order. A little disappointed.

    We had drinks and lunch at the bar. The drinks were good and so was the fish of the day. I had fish tacos, perhaps a little too salty for my taste but the panoramic view of the sea, lagoon and pool were magnificent. Great place to get away from it all, very scenic and relaxing. Pricey but good experience.

    Decent food, not a lot of options. Pull and Peak shrimp and catch of the day type place. The place is cool, but has a casual vibe with expensive selections. Some fun robot servers and the kids were happy.

    With very little alternative venues, with in the immediate area unless you want to drive or get a cab into marathon this is one of the few restaurants of choice. The setting is agreeable & service was good. However, the food was not at a standard of the price. Steak was poor quality & chewy. The pasta was very basic, a very big portion & swimming in oil.

    We have been staying in the Keys for three weeks and have visited many new places that the locals have recommended. This was not a favorite at all. When we arrived we asked for a table by the water and they were able to accommodate. The wine selection was very poor and we ordered the best bottle they had. When we ordered our food as the server was bringing it out she was pushing the flies away so I would not see it. I am not sure if a fly touched my food or not but at minimal she should have taken the plate back. Once the food came we were swarmed with flies everywhere. It was either try and stop the flies or eat. We asked to be moved to the inside and they did. The rice and beans were horrible, the beans were hard and tasteless. The churrasco was poor quality meat and not what churrasco looked or should taste like. In all the restaurants we have eaten at in the Keys this was definitely the worst. Do not recommend....

    The waitress was hard to understand. We did the Catch and Cook. One the menus it says each person doing the catch and cook get two sides. Our waitress insisted it was two sides per table, not per person. We had people with us that had special diatery needs and so that really limited the number of sides we could order. The steak on the menu is a skirt steak. It was good, but VERY overpriced for a skirt steak. Desserts were good. The calamari was ok. The cheese bread and the lobster Mac & cheese was outstanding.

    Nice food and menu choices, service was very good, best spot to eat at hawks cay resort. The bar area could be noisy at times, big outside eating area, not the cheapest place but not the most expensive either.

    We are away on holiday and although the food was better than that at the tiki grill in the hotel we can’t really say the value for money is there. $30 for chicken and pasta for a child was very expensive and I’m not sure anyone can eat a whole uncut lettuce with cold bacon bits and three shrimp.

    After a chaotic start, the food was delicious. We had reserved a table 90 days in advance but when we arrived we were informed that tables on the balcony could not be reserved and we would either have to wait or sit inside. This seems a bit strange to me - why give the people who have reserved in advance the least desirable tables in the venue. My suggestion would be to allow people to reserve for either indoor or outside dining, as other venues easily do. Once at our table, the food and beverage choices were excellent. The tuna nachos were amazing, and the Caribbean BBQ chicken sandwich and fish sandwich were both delicious. Beer choices were also very good. Bar and waiting staff all very friendly.

    The location is beautiful, lovely atmosphere. The food however was awful. The menu needs a revamp overhaul. Fish tacos had little to no fish, and the food was cold.
