We spent a year looking for the best fish tacos between home and Key West and this is the place! Oh, but don't leave without trying the World Famous Tuna Nachos!

Stopped by for lunch... tempted by the fish tacos which were fantastic. Some local beers on tap, and great view across the ocean.

we enjoyed a nice meal and drinks here on a rainy friday night. typical pricing and slower paced service for the island. but we all enjoyed a nice meal and drinks after a long day. Our party had teenagers, vegans, and meat eaters and all were satisfied.

Good atmosphere and live music. You can feed the mangrove snapper off of the pier. You must have the Tuna Nachos. Amazing! Way more tuna than expected. Everything else we had was OK.

The staff were wonderful and the bartender even bought our small dog a bowl of water. Open air with live music on Sunday evening 10-9-2016. Some of the best conch Fritters I've ever had! Excellent combination of quality without over the top prices.

I had the tuna nachos at the island grill today. They were the best I have ever had. The fish was so fresh. The scenery was nice on the ocean, with the breeze. Very casual in the keys.
