After walking the length of Duval Street in hopes of finding some good food we finally chose Grand Cafe. No reason in particular. Every dish was absolutely perfect. Caesar salad with anchovies and clams were exceptional. Main dish of Seafood pasta with white sauce was also delicious! Definitely need to stop in!

Was in the Keys during Fantasy Fest and ate here three times. The Key West Shrimp w/ Penne in rose sauce is unbelievable. Clams and mussels in cream sauce was wonderful. Salads are beautiful.Service is very good and prompt. Wonderful atmosphere and very nice staff.

We enjoyed a lunch of fish sandwiches and crispy fries on the porch of this Duval Street cafe. The covered porch is far enough away from the street to offer an elevated view for people watching and quiet enough for lunchtime conversation. The food was quite good and the wine selection was decent. Service was very good.

This was our 'go to' happy hour spot. The specials on drinks and apps was awesome and seemed to be the best happy hour deal on the island (half price apps and I believe half price or severely reduced drinks). We loved the front porch but, upon a second visit, (being historic house buffs) really enjoyed the interior high ceiling dining rooms in the historic house. The bar in the rear has a special, fiber optic lit, ceiling that is not to be missed. Just get over here by 4:30 and stuff yourself. Key west is all about apps and drinks and dinner can wait til you get home! No, seriously, save your money.

Had dinner there yesterday. Nice location right on Duval Street and white tablecloth’s which is not the standard at that street...
The vaitriss were really nice and effective and were forgiven when my girlfriends maincourse started being served at the neighboring table - coming to ours when the mistake were detected. So far so good.
But - the quality of our food were not that good. I went for the most expensive thing at the menu - “Chiefs Selection” menu. Supposed to be Filet Mignon, Lobsters, Ravioli with mushrooms and Crab. What I expected - separate servings. What I had - one plate with 4 miniature dishes. Not a menu but one dish. Of 49$! My girlfriend ordered a maindish with a whole grilled Yellow Snapper. And she got. With rice. And nothing else. The fish were so dry so she had to tell the waitress it - who complained and a new fish maincourse came. At that time I had finished my one maincourse. All in all - not convincing. And even worse - the four small dishes at my plate were not that interesting. Thumbs down.
