We had dinner and we were able to view the sunset above the Mallory Square crowd. The waitstaff raised the shades so our views were excellent. This is really the highlight of the visit. Service was fine and attentive, but the food was lacking in the quality that one expects in Key West. The fresh catch was tasteless and lacking... More

We had a guest that was coming to the Keys for the first time. We have enjoyed Hot Tin Roof many times for sunset. I made a reservation 1month in advance for outside seating to watch the sunset. I verified the reservation twice during the month to be sure we had a great table and was told each time "You... More

Our server- Adrian- did an excellent job of taking care of us. He made sure that we had enough time to savor each course. We... More

The food and staff were outstanding. There were four of us. 2 had the Key West Pink shrimp, 2 of us had the Risotto wit scallops. The shrimp and scallops were perfectly cooked, as well as the risotto. Would definitely come back.

We went because of the view at Sunset Pier. Then we were pleasantly surprise by the quality of both the food and the service. It's kind of pricey but worth it. The atmosphere is clubby and warm. This was the first time I have seen lighted menus using the same type of technology as tablets. Great idea. We had the... More

Foremost, reservations are a must. Weather permitting, make sure you get an outside table next to the railing for the beautiful sunset view. Don't let them seat you outside, but away from the railing unless this is not important to you. This is expensive dining, so get what you want for the total experience. Sit at the bar for a... More

I made the reservation after I read about the sunset a week in advance when I got there I didn't get the outdoor patio with the view. My TA friends make sure you request outside table otherwise you won't get the view.

My wife and I had dinner here and I think the winner was their key lime pie. It was a little more tart than most and we just loved it. My wife had snapper and it was cooked to perfection. I had a steak and it was very flavorful and tender. Reservations are a must, We would go back again.
