Once you get to the marina, there are many places to dine. We liked the Boat House and has a short wait to get in. Once seated, our server did a great job in bringing drinks and taking our food order. The restaurant was crowded...More

Stopped here last year and could not wait to go back, and it did disappoint. Half price beers and great platters. Would recommend the Filet, Lobster, and Fish Bites. Best Happy Hour in Key West. Make sure you are early for seating.

This was one of our favorites during our week at the Keys. The best happy hour with 1/2 off their small plates which were not small at all. I think we tried 1 of everything. The drinks were great and the staff was amazing.

They have a great happy hour with half off appetizers and drinks from 4 to 6:30 pm. Our dinner entrees were fabulous as well and presentation was nice. Prices were very moderate for Key West.

Stumbled across this place while exploring key west. For an early dinner during happy hour was one of the best tapas style meals we’ve had.

The food here is great. We ate here twice in two days. The daily happy hour specials on drinks and small plates was the attraction but the food was our reason for a return visit. Try the boat bread, sooooo good. The service was good,...More
