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.

    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!

    Angler and Ale is a fun bar type restaurant. It is our first night at Hawks Cay for the past 7 years. It was even open the summer after Irma when we came down. Pricey but the food is decent. Service is middle of the road but pleasant servers make the experience better. Just a fun family place to go in general. Also get the benefit of seeing a charter come in with fish. Kids love it!! Go with a slow pace and good vibes!!

    Been several times over the years.since it opened.food has always been perfect everytime. Staff is always very nice and friendly. Prices are decent. No deal. But you get good food for the money . Being above a dock. With fishing boats cleaning catches. Naturally flies arrive . They swarm you while eating. For the assumed high revenue being made. They could screen it or think of fly traps. That way they can keep the flies off your 50+ dollar dishes.

    Our experience was fine but very disappointed in the food. We got appetizers and salad. My husband had the grouper cheeks and said they tasted like fish sticks. I ordered a side of lobster mac & cheese which was $28, but very little lobster and not cheesy at all.

    View was nice and location convenient to Hawks Cay guests. Food was good, but prices were high for the type restaurant. The biggest negative was our food was brought to us out of the kitchen with a swarm of flies that would not leave until we were finished and our food taken away.

    Food and ambience was good (minus the pesty flies) but our server Corrine was amazing....attentive, personable and professional. It was my husband’s birthday and she made arrangements for the staff to sing and delivered a complimentary slice of key lime pie to the table with cheer. Extra touches making the Angler & Ale experience special!

    Service was the best part of this dinner. The view is also very nice as it is right on the water. Food was mediocre at best. Tacos and bbq chicken sandwich were very disappointing. Special Asian steak was very good and the banana split being the one item we all enjoyed. Would try other options in the area.

    Hopping vibe with great friendly bartenders. Wide variety of florida brewers on tap. Food was delicious and the waterside dining ambiance was a plus. Only negative was the high mosquito count, but the restaurant did offer insect repellent on request. Manager was on the floor assisting with diner needs. Love the hands on professionalism. Great experience!
