Calusa at Baker's Cay Resort Key Largo
We made reservations for lunch for 12:15 for a table overlooking the water. Sadly, we had to wait a very long time to get a table that had a water view. However, in the end, all worked out and the value was great. The food delicious and we enjoyed the drinks to celebrate both Easter and a special anniversary.
Probably some of the best food in the Keys. View is beautiful, atmosphere had lots of people and a band, service was friendly and present, presentation was like I have never seen and DRINKS....yum! All just spot on.
We ordered the surf and turf without the lobster. It only took $6 off the price. I ordered my steak well done but it was medium. The waitress came to check back 5 to 10 minutes after. We told her it was way undercooked and she did offer to have it taken back. At that point, we had waited too long and didn’t want it microwaved. Instead of taking the steak off or given a 50% discount, they gave us a free dessert to share. There were only 3 other diners there at the time so it wasn’t a matter of it being busy. $120 for 3 Mini drumsticks, 2 salads and an underprepared steak minus the lobster isn’t worth the cost. No bread with dinner either.
Very nice and Professional Property. The staff was out of sight!
I struggle with this review. The food was very good. Burrata salad - wonderful, fish cooked in banana leaf - very subtle flavor but delicious, key lime pie - superb! Other items we ordered (conch fritters, etc) good. The setting is beautiful. We were there for sunset and the trees, water, and sun provide a spectacular backdrop for dinner. The service and ambiance brought our last dinner in Key Largo down, however. First, there was a large group of three families with young children on the same level as us (parents one end of the table and kids at the other) who all just got louder and more "out of their seats" as the night wore on. Not the restaurant's fault, but little was done to curb their effect on the other diners. We received our appetizer and salads at the same time, our server thought she had closed us out while we were waiting and waiting to order dessert, and we finally requested, on our own, a move to a quieter table for dessert. Unfortunately, the inside seating area is all hard surfaces, so quiet was relative. I hope the restaurant continues to work to provide a consistent level of food quality, ambiance, and service to have a real winner here. The potential is there.
Beautiful tree top setting, food was great
Beautiful setting, great desserts and service.
Excellent food. Great water view from a 3rd floor balcony. Pricey but worth it.
We had a table on the upper level, outside along the rail, and enjoyed watching the sun go down. The food is served hot and has wonderful flavor. The half roasted chicken is fantastic, the surf and turf was perfectly prepared. The jerk shrimp app was so flavorful and fresh. Our children loved the chicken fingers and the hummus appetizer. Our servers were very attentive, yet gave us time to enjoy our meal. Highly recommend!
Didn’t know what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised with the very good meal. Everything was hot and tasted delicious.
Outstanding employees very friendly and outgoing. Make you feel part of the family
My fiancé and I took my mother for dinner there. The service was great! The food was good (not fine dining but good).
