Incredible food, impeccable service, great wine selections. In my reservation I requested the best view of the sunset and they gave us the absolute best table they had. Perfection all around. Wonderful way to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary!

Great service and view. Bloody Mary bar is second to none. Food was just ok... any bread item felt a little stale and lacked flavor. Seafood was very fresh.

We had a wonderful time at Hot Tin Roof! We dined there on the first night of our honeymoon. Having just arrived, neither one of us was starving. When we told the server, she was able to help us select a few tapas items that were good size that were delicious and exactly the right amount of food. Wonderful experience. And the VIEW!!! Being there at sunset, we sat outside, and it was absolutely perfect. Absolutely recommended

The night started off with a small glitch when a table was not ready at our reservation time but we ended up getting a nice outdoor seat. The service and food was excellent and the ambience was nice. The only complaint was the music coming from an adjacent restaurant but it did not ruin our meal. Overall a very nice dining experience.

The AC in the building was at 80. So after spending the day outside in key West there was not much relief inside. Food was good but waiters seemed a little slow. It took a while for us to get our check and for it to be taken.

I hate to take away from the servers but unfortunately the front hostess was miserable and in my opinion needs an overhaul in training or be fired. She did not even welcome us to the restaurant but asked us “do you have a reservation?” I’m ready to walk out the door at this point. She then says we don’t have a table outside for 4, I told her I did not want to be outside want to be inside. She hastily takes us to a booth and aggressively hand us the menus. My husband and I are kinda wondering if we should even give them a chance but all is wiped clean when our server approaches (“Chip”) very knowledgeable wants to give his table a great experience and he does. Food was amazing, fresh oysters. fresh seafood, our son had the striploin was perfect, and a good selection of wines. Servers worked table and were amazing - on point.

I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday, the food was great. I had made reservations online for a table outside and noted it was his birthday. We got a wonderful table outside to watch the sunset and they provided a complimentary birthday key lime pie. The waiter was amazing, staff was great, service was unbelievable. Would absolutely recommend!!!!

We had dined at Hot Tin Roof several times in the past and always had good experiences.
This time, however, we were disappointed. We asked for a table outside so we could enjoy the sunset. Unfortunately, we were given a table in the middle of the patio, right next to the door. Probably the worst table on the patio even though we stated we were happy to wait for a good table.
The food was also unmemorable. My husband liked his grouper but his lobster cocktail was bland. The plantain chips in my heart of palm salad were stale and my island spice tuna didn’t taste as fresh as tuna usually tastes in Key West.
So disappointed

We were visiting Key West and this restaurant had been recommended as one of the nicest ones of the island. The views are beautiful on the marina and catching the sunset there is pretty cool. However, there was live music on the Pier so the restaurant was extremely loud - it was hard to talk through the noise. Service was good but considering the high prices of the food, we would have expected top notch service. Finally, the food was good - special mention for the shrimp which were the freshest we had in Key West - but the tuna poke had so much sauce in it that we could barely taste the tuna itself.

Excellent experience at Hot Tin Roof! We felt welcome from the moment we stepped in the door. Our waiter was attentive and informative, answering all of our questions about the menu. We ordered the seafood paella and short ribs and loved both dishes. We took some of the short ribs home in a doggy bag. The best part of the meal was our picture perfect view of the sunset from the patio. Just marvelous! Will definitely come to this restaurant again!
