I have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed. Good selection of wines. Tables on beach area are wonderful, but probably not as much in August! Small dogs welcome in bar patio area.

En route home from Key West to Miami, found this great place. Will be our top choice next time. Tried a seared tuna salad with really fresh tuna. Also tried unbelievably delicious roasted Brussels sprouts petals.

Very good food that varies from tuna salad and fish, burgers and nice desserts. Service is very attentive and very nice. Very calm place to spend a day or half a day with family and friends. The place deserves a visit.

We tried to make reservations during our stay and were told they didn't take them. Could be that our party size was only three. We decided not to wait and did get immediate seating in a section off to the side, and frankly... More

Is it difficult to get a table outside around sunset during the week? Better to get there early, by 5 or 6?
