Seated outside next to the cigar maker who was very loud and was a huge distraction to a beautiful view and dinner.
Chose the oysters and my husband chose the snapper New Orleans. Oysters were small and just ok, plate filler was French fries and a half corn on the cob. Honestly the fries were the best.
Snapper presentation was awesome but disguised the puny piece of fish that was surrounded by a mountain of mashed potato, a potato cake and fried onions with a moat of green beans and carrots. Fish was tasty but not a $24 meal.
In and out in 60 minutes. Opted for no birthday dessert because I had no faith in the possibility of it being worth it. Disappointed

My granddaughter made this selection and she was on the mark cause it was really good. We were 30 minutes before happy hour so we had an appetizer with our drinks. When we finally decided what we wanted it was happy hour and some of it was on the menu for happy hour. King crab legs and peel & eat shrimp to share and off we went. Both were delish and I would recommend anyone to eat here.

The restaurant is located in the Key West Historic Sea Port, a lively spot with stores, restaurants, and a large marina where the sunset cruises launch. Our server was good, sea food was fresh, plenty of drinks to choose form menu, outdoor and indoor areas. Parking in this area can be challenging but some hotels have shuttles that drop off guest there.

So impressed with the menu here, we ate here two different times on on our trip. First night we tried the Avocado Crab Salad and Coconut Grouper and both meals were delicious! Also a wide variety of Fresh oysters to choose from. Second time we went during happy hour and enjoyed half price drinks and $1.50 Oyster of the day. Lobster Roll was also a delicious choice. Definitely worth a visit when nearby.

I've been coming to their happy hour since 2002 and it's still good. I love their conch fritters :).
