    Took over 1 1/2 hours to get entrees. Restaurant was not full. No explanation given for significant delay. Tables around us got seated, served and left all while we waited for our food

    Nos trajeron la cuenta y no habíamos terminado de comer y queríamos postre porque estábamos celebrando cumpleaños pero ellos no hacen nada especial y la comida no era la gran cosa. Hay mejores lugares para comer pescado y mariscos frescos. Por otro lado se equivocaban en el pedido que se hacía y había que pedir que retiraran los platos con sobras y no estaba el lugar muy acogedor

    We were a party of 6. We sat down and ordered drinks. It took 20 mins to get drinks and the bartender did not know how to make a Cosmopolitian so our waitress had to make them and they were awful. We got our check and never ate there.

    Well we have been to many restaurants here. This one is super casual but the food was just excellent and half the price from expensive places down the street. We all order lobster , fish sandwiches and the shrimp peal and eat was delicious We we're able to feed family of 4 adults for 100 The roster and chickens walking around have it that cool vibe

    I had trouble rating our experience because overall there were some good things and bad things. So a focused on the positive in selecting a rating of 4. The service was slow, especially for a mid afternoon lunch. Had to wait a long time to get my beer. But there was only one person taking and running orders so I can’t really fault her. The ambience was ok. A typical Florida Keys outdoor tiki hut type of place. However, the food was outstanding. I had the crab cake appetizer and tuna tacos. Those were the best tacos I have ever had! Partner had the mahi sandwich and enjoyed it. After eating we went into the market and purchased some fresh fish. The service was great and fish was wonderful. I would go back to this establishment but lower my expectations about dining service.

    Waited a while for a waiter. He has quite good once we were waited on. The calami was inedible. The shrimp was ver fresh but so hot when it came out it burned our mouths. My crab cakes were not good at all.

    Nice little place, fresh seafood, reasonably priced and great service. They’ve made it a cute little outdoor seating area although it is off the highway so not quite as fabulous as waterfront. Highly recommended!

    Brutus Seafood was a nice outing for us. The menu is not very ambitious…standard casual Florida fare. I ordered the Brutus sandwich which isn’t special but it was VERY delicious. The mahi was blackened lightly and the bun was perfectly toasted, adding to the flavor combo. My husband had the seafood Alfredo containing shrimp, scallops, calamari & blackened mahi. It was also very delicious with the exception of the calamari which should have been omitted. It was rubbery and flavorless. We’d return.

    We went here for dinner while on our honeymoon and wish we had skipped this place. While we liked the vibe and had high hopes about the dinner specials, they were out of most items on the menu including but most likely not limited to: gator bites, yellowtail, hogfish, grouper, sweet potato fries, cold bud light, tempura batter and good service. I ended up with the grilled mahi mahi which was served with fries instead of asparagus and since our server never came back to check on us, I can only assume they were out of asparagus too. My husband had a fried fish sandwich with a small portion of fish that was lost in the oversized roll. We sat for upwards of 20 minutes without drink refills and had to flag our server down. We were really excited to try Brutus based on the many good reviews but sadly we left disappointed.

    Showed up around 7:25 for 7:30 OT reservation. Waited for outside seating, told it would be 15 minutes. At 8 was told kitchen was closing and eat inside or go home. Ate inside. Best blackened mahi I've had in a long time. Wife not as impressed. Brutus is brutal on wait staff. Need to get food from inside kitchen, take it thru inside seating, out closed door, down concrete steps to outside seating. Repeat about every 3 minutes. Yeah, they may get a little testy. And they reported us to OT as a no-show, although on checking in at 7:25, I pointed out our name on the computer screen.

    Thought we'd try this place after reading the reviews. Very disappointed. I ordered up with Grouper on my salad. The fish came out like a piece of rubber. I think I would have needed a steak knife to eat it. When I asked the waitress if she could replace it, she just walked away. I finished the salad. She never came back until we called her over for a drink refill, a box and the check. She never said a word about the overcooked Grouper. I asked if she could take off the upcharge for the Grouper and she just gave me a look. I said I wasn't asking for a free salad, but I certainly didn't want to pay for the slab of rubber on my plate. She said, "I'll have to ask the manager." They did take off for the Grouper up charge, but still charged me for my salad. Poor service, poor customer service when there was an issue, I would not recommend this place. The place wasn't even busy at this time. We've been in the keys for a little over a week and this is by far the worst meal we have had.

    We got the Brutus platter and the grilled shrimp platter for entrees. There was plenty of food and it was well prepared and the sweet potato fries were awesome! The fried conch appetizer was very good. I loved my Great White drink - served with a great white with a fish in his mouth emerging from my glass! Key lime pie was fantastic! Would definitely recommend and would go again. Great place for a casual meal.

    Stopped in for a late lunch and sat outside in the tiki. Never seen stone crab chowder, but it was very tasty. Conch sandwich was terrific — not your typical chewy, tasteless eat. Shrimp salad was good, and the citrus vinaigrette was fresh and bright. Attentive and friendly service.
