We went with two of of three guests being vegan, once we notified our waitress she immediately responded with vegan options and then recommended for us to talk to the chef. The chef came out and recommended a veggie fried rice and it was amazing! They were so accommodating and it’s very appreciated.

We had dinner and breakfast. The view is the prize here. The food is better than OK, but it the restaurant didn't sit on the site it's on, I think it could be easily over-looked. With that being said, we would eat there again as you literally sit on the beach.

Food did not compare to cafe sole.
The ahi tuna stuffed avocado was great. The hogfish and lobster were okay.

I usually love this place but this time the food just wasn’t that good. My lobster was dry and my granddaughters fish didn’t have any flavor. I was a little disappointed as I wanted her to have a great experience since she hasn’t been here since she was little.

My family and I dined at this restaurant for our last evening in Key West. We each had an awesome meal. The outdoor dining right near the beach was fantastic. Our server was great and very helpful. The drunken scallop dish was the best preparation of scallops I've ever had. My oldest daughter had the grilled lobster and it was perfect. My younger daughter chose the filet and she ate the entire meal and said it was even better than the special dining place we frequent at home. I don't think you can go wrong at this restaurant.

This was a place recommended by a friend who lives in Key West, we are from NY, she was right in the recommendation. Absolutely amazing! The Tuna stuffed avocado was fantastic, so fresh, our daughter wanted to just order more of them for her dinner :) We had the grouper and the drunkin scallops for our meal and they were both so fresh. Also the lobster mash....no words! Beautiful presentations and fantastic food. Oh also the Key Lime margarita is sooo refreshing (huge by the way, they come in a pint glass)

Southernmost Beach Cafe was a great choice for our last night in Key West. It combined the amazing view with the good food and great, friendly service that we found in Key West! Our waiter Aza, was very attentive and helpful with the small children in our party. Service was prompt and the food was fantastic! Highly recommend this location!

we decided to go here last minute..I made a reservation on line for 8:30 PM.. We got to restaurant and they seated us immediately..and then that was it...never saw a waitress for 20 mins..we had a table come after us and sit next table over and a table come 2 tables behind us..the first table (who came after us) got serviced first and drinks..and then finally our waitress came over (you could barely understand her language) and said she would be right back she needs to take care of the table that came 10 mins after us..we were like no we were hear before the first table came..other then that the food came out within a decent time and the food was amazing..but they left bad taste because of leaving us sit for 20 mins and taking care of people around us who came after us

Great location in Key West. Booked a sunset-timed meal, though the sun was not visible on the horizon from the restaurant and the sea was too rough to watch from the pier. That said, it's a nice setting with friendly, efficient staff. Menu is not huge and the prices are what you'd expect for the location. Dinner for 6 approached $250 with drinks, dessert and tip. I suggest going on a calm, warm evening when they can refrain from lowering the plastic windows and blocking the view.

My husband ,son and I decided to check this place out. It is prime location for Key West , as it is on the beach. Our server was great and we enjoyed getting to know her. The following are items I would not recommend ordering: Pork Belly , very dry and smothered in hoisin sauce. Which leads to the grouper tacos, again smothered in hoisin sauce and overall the tacos were soggy . The scallop dish was a big blob of not sure of what, and we could not find the scallops. We love grilled romaine hearts if done right. Our romaine hearts were not fresh as each one was Brown inside , not a good flavor. I forgot to mention we ordered a bottle of wine for dinner. Our food came out and the server had to hunt down our bottle. Overall, great location and service. Food not so great.

We were staying at the Southernmost Resort and wanted a late dinner. Dinner was lovely--outdoors, right on the beach, but in a casual chic setting. We both ordered fish meals--local seafood that was very fresh and sauced nicely. Ended with a nice slice of key lime pie! Relaxing and delicious meal.

Ambiance was nice but when we dined you could not see the sunset from this location we had to leave our table to go onto the dock and we notified our server we would be right back and when we came back in our table had been cleared and everything removed. Also ordered the Filet Mignon that was recommended by our server. May have been one of the worst steaks I have ever had and the temperature was very rare! I ordered my steak medium well and I was only able to eat the end where it was cooked to temperature. We would definitely not recommend this place!

A very nice place to eat. We sat next to the beach with great views. Food was better than 2 years ago when we had only a so-so meal. I had the stuffed Hogfish and it was delish. My wife got the lobster special and did not think it was as good as the lobster she has gotten other places.
