We've been coming here for 20 years. I have yet to have a bad meal . nice relaxing evening. They started having live music at night, not sure if it's every night, we were here on Sunday night.

A fellow in our hotel told us he had an incredible meal in this little place by the side of the road out away from the city center. We went and it was the best meal I had my whole trip. Huge shrimp cocktail, great salad, and you pick the lobster tail you want and pay by the gram. It... More

We didn't do our homework on this restaurant and arrived thinking we would have a few choices -- but it was lobster or lobster. So glad we came because the meal was outstanding. The lobster tails were succulent and wonderful. We really enjoyed the outdoor ambiance of the restaurant. We were too stuffed to enjoy the key lime pie, but... More

When you first enter this establishment, some may wonder what they are getting into. The decor is very rustic with portions of the establishment being open air. It was lighted with candles when we arrived at dark. Once seated, Fernando, his sister and crew were very friendly! We started with fresh warm bread and butter along with some of the... More

They only served lobster and do them in an outstanding manor. After picking out our lobster(sold by weight) we tried the Conch Bisque(very... More

We were seated and waiting over an hour for our food. But...it was definitely worth the wait. The lobster and grouper were to die for. The owner was NOT friendly, and was very upset that we asked for separate checks...which is funny because they were handwritten. He never did come back to our table to collect our $, but all...
