We just wandered in here, mostly because of the printed list of specials. Enjoyed it very much. Good drinks. Recommend the BTL& Shrimp sandwich, crab cakes and lobster bisque

This restaurant wasn't overly busy when we visited and yet we were rushed through our meal by an over bearing hostess. Starter of tuna tartare was absolutely tasteless. Mains - swordfish was ok, mahi mahi was overcooked. Overall not a pleasant experience as we were not allowed to relax over our meal.

Food was mediocre and waiter was RUDE! Celebrated a friend's birthday there for lunch...arrived for lunch as restaurant was just opening...needed a table for 8. BIG effort for the waiter...little attention.. burger was dry and messy..snapper dry, also. Can only recommend the awesome Key lime tart for dessert.Too many other good restaurants on and near Duval..will not go back.

We sought refuge from a rain shower and jumped into the restaurant an hour earlier than expected. The service was attentive and the fish was excellent! We paired Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi with a clean, crisp Chardonnay and enjoyed a leisurely meal. Well done! Casual, yet refined! Well done!

We were disappointed in the burger and fries. We requested medium rare anticipating a pink center, but we got a well done burger that taste re-heated. The fries were slightly warn and greasy. We ask for hot fries and got them, but we believe they were re-heated too. We paid with a credit card. Our bill was $50 dollars, but... More

Apparently nothing stays the same. They no longer serve their delicious burgers at night. The server told us about their specials and one of them was a chardonnay. We ordered it. He didn't mention it was 20.00 a glass. We were just about to order another glass when my husband happened to ask about the price. We are locals and... More

We were looking for a late lunch spot in KW. The outside patio was great. I highly recommend the lobster bisque and salad nicoise. The service was great and location really convenient

So much in Key West is noisy, so it's nice to find an oasis away from the madding crowd. From the moment we walked in the host and server was welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu, and the service is very efficient (if not slightly too fast with food arriving quite quickly after ordering) The food was delicious, excellent wine...
