Great food with a beautiful ocean view. Great service too - waitress was friendly and polite. It got a bit windy but we still very much enjoyed our meal.

Best fresh fish in Key West. Perfectly prepared. And right on the beach looking out at the water. Perfect.

One of the very best restaurants in Key West. Fresh catch every day can be prepared in one of 6 different ways. Right on the beach, open air. Very beautiful.

Spend the month of Jan. in KW every year, dine at 30+ restaurants, Southern Most is always a must do and always one of the top 5.

Nice location but the dinner was not good. The lobster was very rubbery. The stuffed hogfish was overcooked. The prices are really high, especially for such poor food.

The waitress/hostess were friendly when we arrived, but the service quickly went downhill afterwards. Our waitress was from Ukraine. Maybe there were cultural differences, but she came across as surly and impatient. Like she was doing us a favor. When one of the 4 entrees was poorly prepared, she didn't apologize or send a manager to discuss. In fact, she tried to leave it on the bill and charged for both the original entree and the replacement. The appetizers were good and the restaurant is right on the beach. Other than that, I'd suggest going elsewhere.

カリブ海料理を初めて食べましたが、日本人でも美味しいと感じるものでした!正直、観光地のご飯なんで期待してませんでしたがとても美味しかったです。フライドライスとシーザーサラダが一押しです。

Great location for sure. Our kids played in the sand right next to Our table which was nice. Burger was really good. My only criticism is the price for dinner. Very pricey...

The food was truly horrible. Greasy and totally over cooked pasta, scallops with plenty of sand, “salad” covered in cooked prosciutto (WHO COOKS PROSCIUTTO?!?) and doused in a gallon of dressing. This place serves food that lives up to what other countries mock America for. Totally unappetizing and way too fatty.

Sitting on the beach, listening to the waves, is the perfect way to celebrate a family vacation holiday dinner. Rachel, our server made sure that we enjoyed ourselves and made excellent recommendations. The Shipwreck Tropical Punch was a huge hit. The grilled lobster was wonderful.

Daytime, the place is a hot-bed of activity.

Great place. We had lunch here the day we arrived, and went back for dinner another night and breakfast on our last day. The food was great, they prepared my fish perfectly. I love eating outside, just off the beach with a great view. It gets a bit noisy when all the fans are on, but it was quite pleasant there. I will defiantly go back on our next trip to Key West!!

The bar and bartender were great, I expected a little higher quality from the food once we sat down. The starters appeared in about 2 minutes which concerned me that they were pre-made and just heated up and they tasted like they were. The mains were of more concern because they appeared in like 3-4 minutes so there was no way they were prepared fresh to order. The yellowtail fish was edible but ordinary and very dry, I am convinced it was prepare (Macadamia Ceust) and frozen which is the last thing you expect in Key West, the other main of Drunken Scallops my wife thought was very good so all in all an so-sonexperience. Maybe because it was a Tuesday the main chef was not working, but based on this experience Pepe’s, Louie’s Backyard, Blue Heaven and Bagatelle far out rate this place.

Food quality was terrible. I ordered grouper and was shocked to see the "thin" sliced filet. I wasn't aware that a grouper filet could be cut so thin. It was very salty to the point of actually inedible. I ate around the first few bites and the rest was better. The vegetables included were pickles and a carrot. This was a bad combo. Also $33.00. The price was not listed on the menu. Most place in KW catch of the day run around $23.00

Breakfast and lunch are better. My suggestion is to skip dinner there.

Server (Ivana) was excellent.

Very loudy environment (probably because of the Fantasy Fest). It's your standard bar food at a high price. Service not good: Waiters are not very friendly and while we just started off with our starter, they allready brought the entrees. Restrooms were very, very dirty. I'll never go back to this place. You can find equal food for much less at every corner of Duval!

Go during the day for the view not as worth it during night time because you can't enjoy the ocean front. Food was good just very pricy.
