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.

Our server was great but my food was inedible. I didn’t let the server know so that’s on me. I just couldn’t eat it.

Great place to stop in if you are staying or passing through. We enjoyed the lobster Mac and cheese and the jumbo crab cakes. Wow! Delicious. We also enjoyed our waitress Caitlin who wa a helpful in recommending a few spots I. Key west since we were headed that way. Great food and we are thinking of stopping on the way back through for the tuna tacos.

Food wasn’t great. Service was awful. Place is half full and we felt rushed the whole time. Waiter tried giving me someone else’s order thinking I wouldn’t realize. With so many great restaurants in the area really no point in dining here

Food was terrific. The tuna nachos, coconut shrimp, yellowtail snapper and crab cakes were all suggestions from our server. Our server Caitlin was very knowledgeable about the menu and the beer choices. We were very happy with her suggestions. We had such a good time and were so happy with the food we are going back

We we’re staying at Hawks Cay and made reservations months in adamce for Christmas Eve dinner. We are arrived and didn’t have the option to sit outside which was disappointing and we felt others had option over resort company. We did the Catch your own Fish for dinner which was great but ended up being a more expensive option for a large group.

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.
