The food here was quite good! I got nachos and was impressed...the sour cream had a flavor to it that was yummy. My husband loved the NY Strip Steak as well. I'll be returning here when we come back to Key Lime Cove.

While the food isn't great, portions are big and staff is very accommodating. My son dropped a very full smoothie under the table and our server couldn't have been more pleasant about it.
