Caribbean
Dockside dining atop white-washed tables, pastel fabrics, and driftwood benches all punctuated with just a dash of the Bohemian culture. This rustic, yet romantically charming beach shack sits on the edge of the pier amidst gleaming white motor yachts. It’s where the modern sportsman meets the little mermaid under a sunset whose colors of peach, mango and pink could easily find their way into a tall tropical drink.

Understanding these are special times and circumstances- our server was very slow in getting our drinks to us. However, our food was out quickly. Food was marginal quality.

The place is more casual than we expected, and the menu reflects this (mainly burgers and sandwiches with fries). The location is terrific, and a great place to watch the sunset (although the design of the restaurant does not take complete advantage of the great location). The lobster and shrimp cake "starter" was truly outstanding.

Hostess from Queens NY needs to be reassigned. Her condescending attitude is a poor front door to an other wise outstanding experience

The food was tasty, but the views were so breathtaking that I would have paid $30 for a piece of bread anyway... very worth it on a sunny day

The location was just perfect. Live music playing which was a great bonus. Staff was very friendly. Our server Javiar was great (also the bartender). Very friendly and quick service. A little pricey but that’s expected at a 5 star resort in a perfect location in Key Largo. Would definitely love another meal here!

Was very impressed with initial greeting and friendliness of our server. Cocktails came quickly and orders were taken properly, she also recommended some very good options. However things started to decline after dinner arrived. Sweet potato tater tots(which came with grouper sandwich) were mushy at best so sent back to replace with french fries which never came even after inquired. Our 2nd cocktail round took 15 minutes minimum to arrive. Only after we complained that our side never came and specifically asked for a price reduction for our dessert did she say she would have to ask her manager (ended up half-price). We would have thought a manager would’ve come over to just check on meal but no such luck. View from the deck is beautiful and prices are VERY high but you would expect from a resort restaurant. (We are staying at the resort and are resort guests, btw)

We have enjoyed this restaurant 3 times in 9 days...! Service is spot on, drink and food are amazing. It’s not economical so just know, you get exactly what you pay for!!!
We have taken visitors and our small dog, it’s our go to place.
Javier is a terrific server!

We ate here for both Dinner on a Sunday night and lunch on Monday. We are staying in the hotel so it is convenient. For lunch, it's great. Great view, good food (Key Largo is awash in great food, so in comparison, it is just good), and the staff is very friendly. It's a better place to grab lunch on the resort grounds than the poolside bar. They are trying to improve and are clearly taking steps to do so. For dinner, there are pretty limited options for nice ambiance restaurants with a view, so if that is what you are looking for, this will work. Get the hightops for abetter view of the water.

This is the second time we've visited this restaurant and it met our expectations once again. We love the open air setting, the decor and being by the water. Each of our dishes were delicious. We were thrilled to have the same server, Monte, on this second visit. Very knowledgable and professional.

The Tuna Poke was on point and Black Grouper was fresh and prepared perfectly! Nice take on the local Key Lime dessert favorite. Setting and ambience was beautiful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
