    First I called the deck to make sure they were still open. The recording gave the hours and when it went to voicemail the box was full. I went to Open Table to get on the wait list and I was 5th in line. When I got to The Deck there was a large sign saying “see you in May.” 😠

    I do wish there was a better view for ALL tables instead of looking at blades of grass. We couldn't go upstairs on the deck even though everyone was 21+ because we also were ordering food. On a really hot day its tough sitting outside! Otherwise the waitresses are kind and the drinks are great! My go to drink: the rum bucket!!

    Joined the waitlist waited an hour and a half and never got a text. Went up to the host and they said that they text us which they never did. Waited about another 10 minutes and then they finally called us under a number that my husband left. We got a special Bronzino appetizer for $32 which was pretty good. Then we decided to get a burger which ended up being $24 I think they have a nerve charging that for a burger that wasn’t even that great. I mean I wouldn’t hesitate if it was a steakhouse burger quality but it was garbage. Didn’t even bother finishing it. That’s putting it nicely. Chicken wings on the menu or $26 for 12 if you’re looking for a deal do not go to this place. Food is mediocre at best.

    Arrived at restaurant, however my party and I could not find parking for two vehicles and were told to go to the second lot. Was on the waitlist courtesy of Open Table. Received text confirmation that table was ready and informed restaurant in response of out difficulty finding parking. Restaurant had customers park in a second lot across busy route with no crossing signals. Then when back at hostess stand told that our table was given away and had to wait. Other than the poor hosting the food was amazing and wait-staff were great. However, the experience was off-putting considering the restaurant created the condition which caused my party to be “late.”

    We got up Alonzo’s for our first night in Key West! We made a reservation to eat outside and our table was ready within in a few minutes which was great because they were packed for a Friday night. The service was great and the food was delicious! I got the crab and avocado salad and the tuna nachos! My husband loved the conch fritters and got the Catch of the Day! Right on the water!
