    My lobster on my beneduct had a really bad aftertaste like it was old. I didn’t get a bottomless mimosa because I never saw the server until the end of our meal. The table was sticky . The only thing I enjoyed was their potatoes. This was Mother’s Day so it should’ve been memorable …but it wasn’t

    Overall very nice and very convenient is you’re staying at The Reach. Just know that you are on the wrong side of the island to see any type of sunset. So the beach setting is great, but there is no show at sundown like the weather side of the island.

    We had a lovely lunch here & enjoyed the Lobster Benedict at our server's recommendation. The restaurant was clean, beautiful & our server was attentive. We pretty much had the place to ourselves, so the noise lever was low except for an occasional crowing from the rooster outside. When the chicken & 2 chicks wandered in, we knew we were getting an authentic Key West experience! We ended with the Key Lime pie which was too strong for our liking, but not enough to keep us from finishing it! I recommend giving it a try & would return.

    Our server was amazing. The food was good but not great and the location was weird in a walkway off Duval. The location really threw us off and kind of ruined the experience. Food/drinks seemed really overpriced as I would have much rather paid this price for a better location. It wasn’t terrible but it was not memorable and I would not recommend or go back.

    Lobster was very good. Too loud, seating for 2 between a table of 6 and a table of 8 (might have been 6). It was difficult not to get caught up in their conversations. Our waiter was working all the tables, he was hustling. All in all, I would make a return visit.

    Ordered drinks and were served fairly fast. Ordered dinner and after an hour of waiting went to the bar to find waiter. Bartender said system crashed and our order was lost. Waiter then ran up and said dinner could be made in 5 minutes. Declined and walked out. Never again…

    Mix of food items on the menu, definitely has something for everyone! Drinks and conversation were flowing for this bachelorette party group after a night of dancing and drinking. Only thing is that it’s a bit stuffy inside the restaurant— but that’s no fault on the staff.. it’s just humid!

    Server was not attentive, bordering on rude. Lobster macaroni was just cheese with little lobster. Grouper was bland and over cooked. We won’t be back. Was so looking forward to a great night with reading previous reviews. Our expectations were not met for the price.

    Not up to Key West standards. We ordered an avocado salad and small plates - lobster mac and cheese, calamari and truffle fries. The first disappointment - the waiter brought them all out at the same time. Guess we should have specified to bring the salad out first. The avocado sald was good. The fries were hot - although very salty and not much truffle flavor. The "super tender" calamari was not "super tender" and lacking in the described peanuts and cilantro. Finally, the lobster mac and cheese was very bland with hard-to-find lobster chunks. Overall a diapointing experience - we will not be returning as ther are so many better options in Key West. We communicated our disapointment to the waiter who said he would talk with the chef/owner, so perhaps things will get better.

    Im writing this in hopes that the manager will be more aware of our experience. We choose this restaurant because of the location, and wonderful reviews. We had a party of 11 and were the only guests in the restaurant on a Saturday night. The drinks came from the bar poorly made (old fashioned & vodka soda's) so much that we switched to wine. The soups were all served cold and had to be sent back and 90% of the entrees were bland and under-whelming. The server did his best but we could hear the manager not wanting to deal with our experience and acting as if he wasn't on sight. They gave us a slight discount. I really hope the restaurant manager can get things together because this place has potential to be great. Unfortunately we wont be returning.
