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.

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!!

 (Louisville)·Dined on November 29, 2017

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.

 (Cleveland)·Dined on November 9, 2017

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!

We had gone to Southernmost for a late lunch and it was beautiful, delicious and cheap. When we went for dinner we still had the the same fun atmosphere and great food and a terrific waitperson but the prices were very high. Just be forewarned that it's a different menu.

My daughter just wanted a burger with cheese and ketchup. It cost $20 with a side of vegetables. They would not modify from the menu. The server said she would bring the ketchup before the meal. Our meals were delivered with no ketchup, so we asked the server again. She forgot. Another server was filling drinks at our table and we asked him for ketchup, he told the server and she began waiting on other tables. After a few minutes I walked over to the bar and grabbed some ketchup. After being there for an hour, the server checked on us twice. The bill was $107.00, I left her a $5 tip. I was struggling inside to leave her that much.

The food was good the service was horrible at best.

You can't beat the view. The restaurant is on the beach. It is a covered patio open to the sea breeze. The food is excellent. The service was friendly but slow. We had a table of 10 people so we tried lots of different things and all was good.

Calamari was delicious. Scallops with lobster mash was a little too salty. When we mentioned it to the waitress, she said the scallops were always too salty (meaning she had gotten the same feedback before.) Lay off the salt and you will get better results.
Little too pricey as well

We recently enjoyed the Southernmost Cafe at least 3 times during a stay at the Southernmost Beach Resort. It was great all three times - perfect for drinks & appetizers our first night in town, amazing brunch one morning and then a surprisingly delicious dinner one night. Don't be fooled by the "beach bar" vibe, this place has top-notch Key West fare! Try the Stuffed Avocado appetizer, Drunken Scallops main course and a Key Lime martini for an unforgettable dining experience, all with a fantastic view of the ocean.
