This was our second visit to Ky West. I believe their slogan is "where the locals dine", or something like that. Usually a good sign for a resort town. Anyway, both of our dining experiences have been awesome. During our last visit in the fall of 2016, we sat in the main dining room. This time we had a cocktail... More

We have eaten here several times on weekend evenings and it never disappoints. Always consider the specials....freshest seafood with divine execution and tasty sides. Crab bruschetta is scrumptious-loads of lump crabmeat paired with fresh tomatoes and spices on a perfectly toasted, fresh French baguette. Spinach salad is amazing, Mahi Mahi with shrimp, tuna with grits, rockfish with a potato and... More

All I can say is that we will be coming back. Service was great, and the food was excellent. My girlfriend ordered the Oscar Filet and I got the Blackened Chicken and Penne. Both meals were fabulous. We met the owner and told him everything was perfect. We even had the owner's son as a server. He did a wonderful... More

For the many years we've been coming to Ocean City we passed it up, but glad we decided to stop. Food was good, a very cool bar. The locals highly recommend it. The burgers are great and nice drink specials. When I dined in the dining room menue selection was good and the service and atmosphere is nice.

I heard some people talking about how good the food was recently, so I gave it a try. The staff were very friendly, but still professional and the food definitely a cut above what you normally find on the strip.
