    Solid atmosphere with live music on NYE and full restaurant quickly seated with reservations … BBQ was mushy with lots of fat ordered both pulled pork and baby back ribs. Additionally we had to send back pulled pork because the food was room temp at best with cold cheese on “cheese grits” that could even melt. If you’ve experienced good southern BBQ your experience will be below average.

    They were overwhelmed with the amount of customers. Reservations didn’t matter. The bartender was our server and she did the best she could. Food was okay. Only warm by the time we got it.

    They say they take reservations but I don’t think they actually honor them. We were told there were no tables available even though we reserved through open table

    Cajun grouper special with pineapple salsa was amazing (went back a 2nd night for it)! Great cocktails. Only issue was the crab: tried both their expensive stone crab and crab stuffed wahoo, and both times the crab didn’t taste fresh. Everything else amazing.

    Fantastic experience, attentive service and outstanding ding menu selection in a “local” ambiance of casual but quirky dockside. Crazy good cocktail selection. We had the Brisket and Mac & Cheese, both were very good. The fried key lime pie (this is a signature dessert) was just okay, more sizzle vs taste. Highly recommend this restaurant, exceeded our expectations.

    Not sure where to start…the food, the service , the parking, or what? Our server was lethargic, we learned about the specials by overhearing the server tell the table next to us after we ordered. She never came by to check on us and never refilled our drinks. She also did not offer any dessert menu, she just dropped off the check at the table. I was so disappointed we just wanted to pay and leave. The parking situation is horrible. Period. The food was all less than good in taste and flavor. We had a party of 5 and all 5 dishes among the group received thumbs down reviews from each of us. A lesson learned was don’t come to the keys and order barbecue, if you know barbecue you will be very disappointed.

    Prime rib wasn’t edible. Ordered brisket sandwich as a replacement and was given pulled pork. The pulled pork was average at best. We won’t go back and don’t understand why this place has so many good reviews

    Definitely looks nothing like the pictures; the view is covered by small boats and you can only see dirty water ( we sat inside) we were greeted and sat quickly but our server provided very disappointing service; seems like she was new cause she had no idea how to answer our questions and instead of asking for help made up the answer. Another server came to her rescue. The food was okay but the overall experience was disappointing.

    Cute, rustic friendly place to grab a bite on the water. Service was great along with food & ambience. Not too noisy but had nice music for water lovers with live entertainer. Blackening seasoning on the snapper was a little too salty for my taste but otherwise a great meal!
