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.

    What a great experience! It was our first night in the keys and we were super tired but hungry. Our kids were a bit cranky as well. Our server Liz was phenomenal!! She was super personable, friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. We had a great experience over all and can’t wait to go back!

    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.

    Our experience last night 7/29/2022 was TERRIBLE. We have been coming here for the past 5 years consecutively and have never been more disappointed. My husband and I ate earlier with my daughter and her family and while it was okay, it wasn’t great. I then asked if my three boys could sit near us once we were leaving and the hostess seemed annoyed… we were accommodated but the kids said the server was rude. I sat down and asked her to take care of them. She told me to just leave my credit card?! I mean, really. It got really busy, our food took over an hour and when it did come they burned the lobster badly. Mind you, it was what they caught earlier in the day. She never asked for the sides, just assumed they wanted veggies, rice and French fries. Well the carrots and veggies were hard. Rice and French fries are not hard to screw up. Repeatedly I asked for more tea and a drink one of the kids wanted…. By then I asked to speak to the Manager. She politely listened and apologized. Said she would take care of the check. I thanked her for listening and reminded the boys to leave a tip. When the check came they were never offered dessert. They wanted some do they waited. The check was never comped! Instead the server brought more uncooked veggies and (I assume) free dessert. I cannot express how upset this made me. I am not the only one. We will not be returning and will make sure the resort is notified as well. We come here for at least 10 days over mini season and I am so disappointed in the lack of attention, service and professionalism here. Amy Sullivan

    Overpriced for average food. Condensation from AC leaking on our wobbly table. When there’s a $98 dollar meal on their specials menu- you shouldn’t have to deal with either of those things

    The menu is well thought out. It’s resort cuisine but with some great takes on fresh fish and catch of the day entrees. Side note, they have robots. Yeah like real robots serving the food. It was wild. The future is now. Also, the human staff is super accommodating and friendly. It’s our go-to on property dinner spot.

    We sat outside next to the marina, which was very nice. Kids (and adults) can walk down the dock and be entertained by small sea life. Our server was very pleasant and engaging. Wait for food was not long at all, and despite how busy it was, we received our food very quickly. Unfortunately, as soon as we received our food we were attacked by a ton of flies. I’m not sure what the restaurant can do about this, but we were having to actively defend our food while eating it. Portion sizes were decent and enough to be satisfied. Presentation of the dishes were beautifully done, however, not very flavorful and pretty simple. Dishes were highly overpriced compared to other local restaurants with larger portioned, more flavorful dishes. Overall, a good experience, but won’t return due to the cost we paid compared to what we received.

    Food was so so, service was so so, the room and table was nothing special - we felt cramped in a corner and then somewhat forgotten (service wise) when a large table/party with a bunch of women and young girls came in. Just wasn’t a great experience for our first night at Hawks Cay. We are now venturing out to other area restaurants in Marwthon, islamorada and Key West. Well worth the drive for better ambiance and food!
