Nice spot by the harbor. Saw some dolphins while we dined which was nice! Unfortunately the patio is right next to the pool so there were some rowdy kids making a lot of noise nearby. Food was good, service could have been better. But a very nice ambiance.

Best food on Stock Island... including fresh fish, lobster, oysters and amazing steaks. The key to each plate is the variety of amazing sauces available...every dish is carefully crafted, along with delicious side dishes.

This is the second time we’ve eaten at Matt’s and have been very pleased both times. We are local and know how fish is supposed to taste. We had very fresh, perfectly cooked fish with a lovely sauce. My green bean side was just OK but my husband said his cornbread mash was outstanding. Even though we are used to high prices in a tourist area, Matt’s prices were high even by key west standards as everything is alacarte and the service, while pleasant is not fine dining. Otherwise, we’ll be back.

Reservation at 7, restaurant was fairly empty. Server was nice, food was expensive for what you get. $24 for an 8 shrimp basket was pricey. If you are staying at the hotel it is convenient enough, but has potential to be a lot better!

I was looking for something different that was not in Key West. Matt's had good reviews and we decided to give it a try. We will definitely be returning. The crab beignets were amazing. The grouper with gnudi was delicious. Hand crafted cocktails. Seating outside near the water. The bar looked great with a couple of TV's. I would have drinks there. Outside area with firepit for drinks looked great as well.

The preparation and presentation of fresh oysters to begin, yellowtail snapper tacos and skillet seared yellow edge grouper for dinner was the BEST fresh seafood we’ve enjoyed in years- and we’re born and raised in Miami foodies!

A delightful change of pace and scenery from the Duval Crawl scene at a brand new property, beautifully appointed, evoking a causally elegant dockside vibe that includes a hotel, an indoor and an outdoor bar, and a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating at nearby Stock Island.

Service staff and management were friendly, helpful and professional.

A friend was in town for her last meal in KW for a while!!!
When we couldn’t get into another early gathering/dining spot we went to The Perry & Matt’s Restaurant!
Vera at the bar made a very special cocktail for 2 of us & they have IPA’s on draft!!!

My wife and I tried Matt’s along with friends the first night with reservations and went back for a second without reservations to see if we could get a table. We sat inside both evenings and the dining area was nice. There were a few other diners in the area but I don’t think this place has been really discovered yet so it was not noisy at all. Both the food and drinks we ordered were flavorful, perfectly prepared, and consistently good over the two days we ate there. I would recommend trying this place and will make it a stop during future trips to the area.

Decent food - very overpriced. Louis backyard prices but without Louis backyard quality...Shrimp basket was good- ribs very bad. Oyster Rockefeller great as well... however for the price everything should have been excellent... I have no problems spending on a great dinner but hate paying great dinner price for a ok at best dinner... leaving this place for the hotel guests.

The service and ambiance were first rate. Our fresh catch Cornbread Mahi was over fried which gave it a burnt taste. The mahi fish and chips were undercooked , the breading was heavy and soggy. The oysters and sides were delicious. The wine and mixed drinks were on the pricey side and the specialty coffees were not worth the 12.00 price tag.
We will return , there are more things to try and it is beautiful .

This is a really cool spot. Great chefs there! Loved the Commodore Tower - seafood in a tackle box....it was a delicious according to our group (I am allergic to seafood) but a big hit. Drinks were delicious...we never felt hurried and enjoyed our waterfront table.

Couple things that would make it better..would love if they would carry Cooranbong Australian Vodka....and if they would add a few more non seafood items to the menu for those of us that can't eat it.

Otherwise...a special place with a beautiful view. Cheers to the great new spot on Stock Island!

Fresh fish and cocktails were delicious.Had to wait for about 15 min even though we had a reservation.
Nice ambience and good service. Bar was not bussed and was messy looking when we had to get a drink during our wait. Luckily that wasnt reflective of the overall experience we had but was off putting at first. Overall one of the best meals had on Key West.

Location is nice, out of the way but at a nice hotel overlooking a high end marina. Food was good, not amazing but solid. Presentation was great. Service started weak but improved. Lots of staff they just did not seem to be on the same page.

We’d read several good reviews of this place and decided to give it a try this morning. I’d heard that the food was very good and that the place was cool and I have to agree on both counts. While we’d made an Open Table reservation for an outside table - it was one of the options when we booked. Unfortunately when we got their no outside tables were available. We’d probably been fine eating inside but the acoustics were hard and even though the space wasn’t crowded the noise level seemed very high. The hostess was gracious though and said she’d clear a table and have it ready in a few minutes and she did. Unfortunately while she was on her way to get us another hostess seated another party at that table. The nice hostess cleared yet another table for us and 10 minutes later we were seated. A server brought us menus and took our drink orders. We waited a bit and then another server showed up to bring us menus and take our drink orders - we told her we’d already ordered but that didn’t seem to matter. She wasn’t as nice as the first server. I think the best description would be ‘curt, condescending and inattentive.’

But we were already there, it was a beautiful day and the menu looked good. Unfortunately the breakfast casserole that Sue ordered (one of the featured dishes) ‘wasn’t available,’ but the Banana Bread Pancake Special I wanted was and I’d recommend it highly. We’d already told the first server we’d like coffee later so she’d brought us some nice mugs. We finished our drinks (the ‘Bottomless Bloody Marys were very good), ate our food, enjoyed the view over the harbor and waited. Then we waited some more. Eventually our server showed up with the bill - no offer of coffee. We decided to pay and leave so put the credit card with the bill and waited. Then we waited some more. Finally we gave up and went inside to find a cashier. She finally tracked down our server and eventually ran the card.

Wouldn't recommend this restaurant. We joined them for Easter brunch and the food was far below standard. I'm unable to eat raw egg yolk, so asked them to scramble my eggs, but the meal still came with the eggs sunny side up. Server didn't come by the table for 10 minutes so we had to seek someone out to find our server to correct the plate. She admitted she had forgotten I wanted them scrambled, brought the plate back out and said they had just switched the eggs out. Totally fine, if there wasn't yolk that had ran into the rest of the food. My husband had a ham and cheese "omelette" that was awful presentation (cooked eggs and topped with 1/2 a cup of chopped cold ham. There's plenty of amazing restaurants a few miles away that I would recommended in a heartbeat over this place.

Food was ok. Told them rare on the steak and it came out raw. I like a bloody steak but this was still mooing. Staff very attentive but too quick to clear the table as we were still eating from the dishes they were grabbing to take away. Waiter was not paying attention to us as we ordered and forgot half of the stuff we were waiting for that never came. Nice place and good intentions though.

Creative dishes! Lots of deconstruction of classic dishes. Scallop and Bacon but scallops were seared and laid on top of bacon/belly. Key lime was graham crackers with filling in a jelly jar to spoon or spread.
Fish and shellfish were fantastically fresh and preparation was excellent. Mahi catch of the day blackened was great with green tomato, I had the everyday Grouper with great Thyme crawfish sauce. Perfectly cooked!
My wife had the fish taco and loved it. Fantastic presentation.
S’mores dessert on cast iron skillet with chocolate chip cookie, ganache and torch seared marshmallow- SAVE ROOM!
Nice people, nice atmosphere and great food. Take a trip away from Duvall and Old Key West at least once for a fantastic meal.

Excellent food and a beautiful marina setting. The decor is modern and chic and the plates are very very tasty. The service on the other hand was... slow. The food made up for it somehow. The Perry Hotel is also way out of the way of main area of Key West. So be prepared to drive or Uber.

If you are in Key West, Stock Island, or the Lower Keys do yourself a favor and visit The Perry Hotel. They have a great outdoor happy hour from 4-6 PM every night, an indoor happy hour from 6-8 with a different menu, and superb dining.
The Kitchen is staffed with Little Palm Island veterans and it is just wonderful. The decor is minimalist yet rustic and the service staff is terrific.
This was a real find!

Matt's has a wonderful atmosphere inside and out. We mostly like to dine outside and always enjoy some time by the fire pit. The food is always good and service is terrific. We love the Crab Beignets and Oysters. The selection of fresh fish is always changing. I recommend a sampling of the fries too, anything with bacon has to be good!
