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.

We have stopped in here for drinks during past St. Patrick's day parades. It was packed then, but we always planned to get back to try dinner. Recently, after already eating dinner elsewhere and wanting to get after dinner drinks, our group decided to stop by on a rainy night. We instantly felt welcome at the bar and settled in... More

By the name Ky West, we thought that this restaurant was a seafood restaurant. Yes, they were serving few items in the menu but not specializing on seafood. Although we were a bit disappointed, we ended up having the nicest, juiciest and tastiest cheeseburger that I have eaten so far. It was pricy but was worth. We have to climb... More

This is a review from a Ky West insider. I have not only come to Ky West many times as a customer but I’ve also worked there for 2 summers. I have close observations on everything there and, since I’m not part of the team anymore, my opinion is not biased. The food couldn’t be better – and believe me,... More

Was recommended by a friend, this place I guess is fairly new but they nailed it! Sits high overlooks the avenue, very nicely decorated with great big comfortable seats. They had some kind of fruit punch drinks that were very good, great flavor and the right amount of booze. Their chicken wings are great, has a unique flavor I couldn't... More

This is a great place to relax and have a meal or snacks. The people are very friendly and you feel like a member of their family.

jAn excellent mea, reasonably priced (compared to others in OC) My wife had a lobster pot pie and I had grilled mahi mahi with shrimp. Alcoholic beverages were good with a good selection. Bar in adjacent room serves same menu but was noisy. Service was excellent. We'll be back
