Having had just moved to Key Largo, we have many restaurants to try out. We chose Ballyhoo’s for their endless Stonecrabs and I (of course) had Hog Fish Picatta. Our waiter was excellent & his knowledge exceptional. We will definitely be returning here!

The churasco steak had a great flavor. Unfortunately that was the only redeeming feature of Ballyhoo's restaurant. Interior was tired and not very clean. Waitress was attentive as I was her only customer. Menu prices for everything seemed rather excessive for the basic bar ambience...More
