The atmosphere was amazing, and the food was delicious! The bar across the street played great live music. The seafood linguine and the tuna and the fresh catch were all really good. We would definitely come back!
Vacation in key west, our last night. Wonderful farewell with our travel mates.
Food was great!
Drinks were good!
Loved the fans ❤️❤️❤️
The service and brews were perfection. Our bartender Don, was great and provided awesome recommendations for us “out of towners”.
Chairs were very uncomfortable. Appetizers were better than the main course. Banana daiquiri delish!
Beers were ok. Our food was a disaster. Everything was cold. There was a piece of pasta in the burger, and the pork was dry. I gave up on the pork dish about a few mouthfuls. Our server started off great, and then after ordering food we never saw them again. Sat there for 20 mins with empty drinks and untouched food. It wasn’t until a busser came to clear our plates that someone asked how everything was. In the end they comped us the two mains. It was a shame as the place was heaving, so must’ve been a bad night.
We had a delightful waiter Igor who was attentive, efficient and fun too
Love the patio atmosphere
We brought our dogs and the staff was very accommodating, stepping around them when they sprawled out on the bricks. Delicious food (lunch was fish tacos and a salad with blue cheese and blackened shrimp), the beers were excellent, and service was extremely friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend.
Snapper was great, tuna wasn’t bad but we are used to the tuna being a little more rare although we ordered it rare. Service excellent and enjoyed the atmosphere! Going back for wings and a burger later in our trip!
Very attentive waiter. Happy hour specials were excellent. Food was delicious !
Highly recommend this place! Great food, service and atmosphere!
We have eaten at First Flight several times. The service and food are outstanding!
Wonderful outdoor dining, attentive staff, and our meals were delicious. Great beer too! Enjoyed learning about the history of the building.
The food was good! Good scene to sit outside and enjoy dinner. Would eat here again.
The overall experience was good and food was great, but service was very slow. We were a group of 8 and we found that we were often needing to locate our waiter for drink refills and to get a bill. It was early in the day and it was not busy, so no excuse for slow service.
Overwhelmed server but good food. Average wine list. The key lime pie is outstanding. It’s across the street from Hank’s so good background music.
Yummy appetizers and good wine list. The tuna poke was delicious
Went for happy hour but also wanted to eat and have a table. Couldn't take advantage of happy hour however unless seated at bar. Really cool garden seating area however. It's a little buggy there when the food comes out but the food was great and service also fantastic!
Fantastic meal. The fried red snapper may be the best meal I’ve ever had in Key West.
Anniversary dinner. Lovely outdoor ding area. Unfortunate that we had conflicting music with a wedding upstairs and music from Hanks. Our waiter was excellent and attentive. Great anniversary dessert! We will return when in town again.
Loved the outdoor dining. Our server was great and food was very good. Would highly recommend.
Was a really nice dinner. Love the outdoor garden... service was really good
Sadly we were disappointed in this final meal at Key West. All of our dishes were overcooked and over priced. Should have known better than to choose such a landmark place.
Nice quiet dinner and drinks. Welcome change from all the chaos of Duval street.
Our server was not on his game: water glasses never refilled, brought an appetizer with no plates for us to share the Mac and cheese, not friendly, refused to make any changes to food items ordered), food lacked flavor, tasted as though it’s been out under a heat lamp for hours, etc. The ambiance is nice though. Do not recommend.
Bartender was awesome, food was excellent. Love the history, open air tables were fantastic. Great experience!
Everything about this place was perfect and it’s just a block off the beaten path. A little pricy but worth every penny!
Enjoyed the outdoor dining. Large beer/wine/unique cocktails.
Great tuna poke appetizer
Nice swordfish special
Danielle, the server was very attentive and made great recommendations. The whole fried fish was so much better than other restaurants we’ve tried. Patio and layout very nice and Hank’s provided music across the street! Highly recommended!
Great place to eat in Key West. Unique history. Well worth stopping for lunch or dinner.
This was our first time at First Flight Island restaurant and it did not disappoint. We will definitely be back!
This was one of our favorite meals in Key West. Great cocktail, wine, and beer list - definitely try some of the local brews. Great, eclectic dinner menu. Definitely something for everyone. The garden seating is beautiful and if you're lucky, there will be a great band playing at the bar across the street.
Food was very good. Portions generous.
The food was okay, but not great. For the cost I was expecting better. The entire dining experience was overshadowed by the amount of flies!! We paid a lot of money, but intentionally ate as fast as we could because we had to use one hand with a napkin in it to wave off the flies THE ENTIRE TIME! For this reason, I would not return or recommend. The island has a lot of great places to eat, there’s no sense in going through this again.
Nice place. Nice staff. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I ordered thr wrong dish, so it wasn't great. No fault of the cook or restaurant, I just wasn't a fan. Next time I'll just order something different, but I would highly recommend this restaurant. I would also recommend that tje host or wait staff provide some historic background to the building. I believe that would help break the ice and add to a memorable experience.
We’ve been here twice for lunch and once for dinner over the past few years. Food and service are always great. Since they’re a microbrewery, the beer selection always changes. Try their custom cocktails, too. Whatever you get, you’ll be glad you did!
We went there because we had heard about the interesting PanAm memorabilia; although we loved the PanAm ambiance, we are now fans of First Flight because of the excellent food! The food and the service were both first class.
Absolutely perfect atmosphere! The food, service and music from venue across the street incredible! I highly recommend!!
