Having read the reviews maybe expectations were to high, however we found the food bland and expensive for what it was. And as for the service, well let's leave it at it was missing something.

The tuna salad, the wings and the peel and eat shrimp were so yummy. The service was great. We loved that we could shuttle from the hotel to the restaurant. Everyone is friendly here. Highly Recommend for family, date, fun with friends. :)

Very good service, excellent food. It was pretty full on a Wednesday evening and pretty loud with conversations. The Cajun grilled seafood combo was fantastic (the crab cakes were incredible!), as was the crab stuffed salmon. The Key Largo grouper was very good, but a...More

Sorry Kas B. I've never had the fried oysters there but sounds like I should try them! If you haven't tried the lobster rolls you should! Best around!

The Atamanchuk family and the entire staff welcome you to the Lock-N-Key where every entree is a “Specialty of the House.” Our menu items are made fresh from the finest available sources and prepared with loving care by our talented chefs.

Please inform your server of any special request and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Great food at great prices. Great entertainment several nights a week. Catch your favorite team on one of our many TVs with your friends or rival comrades. Soak up our gorgeous sunsets or come for lunch and glory in the warmth of Florida.

No matter what the reason… we’ve got a table ready just for you.

If you close your eyes you’ll hear the sounds of small waves tumbling on the gulf sand, the clatter of silverware as patrons dine, and some pleasant chatter amongst friends during a break in the evening’s musical entertainment. Your taste buds are stimulated by the smells of cooking garlic and steak searing on a grill, mixing with fresh odors coming from the salt-water beach across the street, and your body is caressed by a warm Florida breeze.
