Hot Tin Roof is a fantastic restaurant, offering great sunset views, delicious food, and excellent service. The dinner we had there was the best of our entire trip to Miami and the Florida Keys. Our server, Tom, was very authentic and knowledgeable. We started with...the two smoked cocktails which were a nice change from more standard drinks. We then shared the blackened shrip mac & cheese, moved on to the grilled shrimp and osso bucco entrees, and finished with the key lime pie. We were able to hear the live music from the Sunset Pier restaurant which sits below and in front of the Ocean Key resort to which Hot Tin Roof belongs.More

Saw that this restaurant faced the waterfront and decided to check it out. As soon as I walked in I fell in love with the decorations and the feeling this place gave me. It was a busy night and I didn’t have a reservation so...I had to wait a little and my date and I sat at the bar. Nick the Bartender attended us and he was Magnificent, his descriptions of the fun cocktails and delicious appetizers convinced us to get some and it was all fantastic. We later sat outside and enjoyed the sunset with some live music. It was a very successful night and I’m glad we chose The Hot Tin Roof, and thanks to Nick for the wonderful recommendations and tasty drinks!More

This was absolutely perfect for our 25th anniversary dinner-we felt like everyone went above & beyond to make this a most memorable evening for us! It was the perfect setting with outdoor seating overlooking the water, and we viewed the gorgeous sunset as we ate....Our table had a cute, personalized Happy Anniversary sign when we arrived at the restaurant. The food was divine! We shared small plates: the crab cake, the grouper, the blackened shrimp mac & cheese, and the baby iceberg salad. Our cocktails were wonderful as well! We were wished a Happy Anniversary by several of the staff during our visit and our waitress was top notch-everyone there was so friendly! This was by far, our favorite dining experience while visiting Key West!More

Went here one morning when a friend was in town visiting. Sorry we did. Didn't even recognize it was our anniversary. Requested a front table with a view and didn't get one. We used to go here for dinner before covid but since they never...brought back paella we loved to get and share.More

One of the best experiences ever! Andrea was our waitress and she made the evening delightful. The food and drinks are delicious. We had the coffee dusted cauliflower and brussel sprouts to begin so tasty. The crab cake was a good size and tasty as...well. The table shared the chocolate torte along with Key lime pie with no complaints at all! The view is stunning. We bought our family who was visiting from Nova Scotia and we all can't wait to return! Andrea especially made our visit memorable.More

Hot Tin Roof is a beautiful restaurant in Key West and, if you sit outside, you have a spectacular few of the sunset. The drinks and food were amazing and the service by our waitress Joanne was perfect. She was very attentive to our needs...and checked with us throughout dinner to make sure we were enjoying our experience. I will definitely be back and I highly recommend you try this restaurant.More

Impeccable, friendly service and fantastic food! Came here right after watching the sunset from Mallory Square for a celebratory birthday dinner for my husband. Our table wasn't ready yet (we were early) but we were able to sit at the bar and enjoyed a couple...of signature cocktails. When we were taken to the table we were surprised with a Happy Birthday sign! Joanne, our server, was outstanding along with all of the other staff - would highly recommend!More

We sat in the dining room by the window which faces the west. That will give you a great view. But honestly the hotel whether you’re in the dining room or by the outdoor bar will give you a great view of the sunset.
