I could say it’s Key West’s best restaurant, everything was delicious, from the bread to the shrimp scampi! Don’t know about the hotel, but the restaurant area is very vintage and fancy in style but keeping the local architecture. Service very good and fair price!

Everything was wonderful as always. We had requested either Mark or Billy but Precious was our server. She did a great job.

About the restaurant
Angler & Ale, an amazing restaurant where either before or after an astounding sunset cruise or snorkeling with Sole' Watersports, you can grab a waterfront table, dig into some of the Key’s favorite dishes, and wash it down with a frosty cold, fresh-from-the-tap brew or a crafted cocktail. Better yet, bring in your own catch for a hook-and-cook feast prepared by our expert chefs. Great food. Cold beer. And fishing. Doesn’t get any better than that. After booking your dining reservation, don't miss out booking your sunset cruise by clicking here: https://solewatersports.com/trips/tropical-sunset-cruise/

Nice casual setting ion the water. The food was decent though not great. Initially, service slow to start but waitress Leana (? Spelling) did an amazing job taking care of quite a few tables- great attitude all with a smile.
