    There is a huge pile of seaweed on the beach that is smelly. Tons of birds trying to eat food on the floor- a feather landed in my salad.

    Two lobster during main course substantially undercooked. Told staff and chef. Chef’s response: “well, only two”, and moved on to another table.

    Food was good, our server Diane was great and very at tentative to the tables she was overseeing. Would have been better but the extremely pungent smell from the seaweed (Smelled like raw sewage) that was covering the beach just took away from the overall Key West Outdoor atmosphere. Beach does not look like nay of the advertisements - unfortunately the scenery was a total bust and the smell... OMG Until they rectify this issue I'd go else where....

    I think this could be great like the reviews say but the birds both chickens and pigeons were out of control. Also, the seaweed smell was very strong because the beach is covered. Food was good but it was hard to enjoy. Overall, disappointing.

    The food and service were good but on top of the chickens (which we’ve grown used to) there were birds in the eves - fighting and pooping from above. They definitely killed the mood

    Was told on a website it was a good place to watch the sunset. However, the place was located on the east side of Key West. Food was OK but overpriced.

    The service was wonderful. Our server was prompt and continued to check on us. I had the double pork chop with glaze that was so tender and flavorful. The truffle mashed potatoes were cold and stiff. My meal also came with Brussels sprouts they were seared but raw. My husband had the scallops in a cream sauce, delicious. Our problem was the chickens ( roaming free in Key West) had pooped every where. So much so the staff couldn't keep up cleaning. It just wasn't pleasant.

    The food was good. Overpriced but good. Chickens all under your feet. Flies everywhere. We were eating and swatting at the same time. Kinda killed it for us. Gorgeous views but we couldn’t wait to get out of there.

    We just went there for dinner. We’ve been there in the past, but this time the menu was very limited and very expensive. Also, my Moscow mule was $15 and it didn’t taste good at all. It was bitter and the ginger beer seemed flat. Sorry to say, we may not go back there and I used to love it!

    The drinks, conch fritters, and filet mignon were phenomenal! The lobster was a little underwhelming, but as people who don't eat it often we can't truly review it appropriately. The beachfront location and light breeze were delightful and the wait staff was kind. It was a little pricy, but Key West is generally an expensive dining area. Overall- we had a pleasant dinner in a beautiful spot.

    I am truly disappointed. I have eating here for dinner many times over the decade plus I have been coming to KW( I come 4x a year as I own a home in old town). The menu was very limited as far as staples to KW … very “She She” …I do not mind paying top dollar at all for a varied menu with quality food. It’s like they are trying to upscale and why that is fine , keep some traditional fare on the menu. I won’t be returning until that happens.

    Great view and vibe. Good conch fritters, fresh fish, scallops and shrimp. Caesar salad was OK — made better by lemony white anchovies — as were the side dishes. Entrees were overpriced for what we got. Speciality cocktails were good but a little pricey too. No blue cheese-stuffed olives, despite being a key component of one of the martinis on the menu. Service wasn’t up to par. Server was pleasant but somewhat inattentive.
