We stopped in to this establishment after driving by several time. The interior decor was festive and caribbean. Unfortunately, that was the best part of our visit. We found the menu options overpriced. The staff was unprofessional and lacked training. They would not provide a soup sample. We won't be back.

Had friends from out of town. Enjoyed dinner of frog legs and crab cakes. Of course, key lime pie - fantastic. Only problem was to get our bill at the end of our meal. Had to finally ask for it.

Don't be fooled by the seafood appeal! Service was mediocre at best. I usually assess a serving staff by their attentiveness and energy. As I watched the servers deal with customers it was very lackluster. The food was poor. Calamari was not fresh. It was actually burnt and you could tell the fryer oil had not been changed for a...

The only bad thing about CoCoNuts is that everyone in the family wants to eat there every night. The atmosphere and the food really do take you back to the Florida Keys. The Fish dinners taste like they just came off the boat. The staff was helpful and attentive. If you are in the area, don't pass up this wonderful... More

We have eaten at Coconuts several times and enjoyed it every time we have eaten there. One thing to remember is about the months they are open or should I say not open.

Cocktails are seriously overpriced. The food is average. The atmosphere is cute. If you dine there, I would recommend the fish tacos. they're decent. Very friendly wait staff. I personally think their appetizer menu is better than their dinner menu. Overall I'm not seriously committed to their food.

Fun and great food. Key lime pie best I have ever had. Shrimp were wonderful. Fun place to go with 2 or 10. So sad we missed the music. They close for winter which is to bad.

Only open in warm months, this is a Margeuritaville wannabe. Very friendly, very Carribean, lots of fish, clams, etc. Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere

I had dinner here with family and the place could be transported to the North Shore of Hawaii without skipping a beat. The seafood is good, wait staff were friendly, and service was quick.
