The food is fair and the waitress was great. The drinks are watered down. The best part used to be the atmosphere and the key lime pie. The atmosphere is still good once you get in and are seated. The last visit I ordered the pie and it wasn't the same. The key lime filling was scant to the bottom... More

The staff are always friendly and give great service. The patrons are all of varied ages so it works well for everyone. They also have live... More

WOW. Historic restaurant, supposely the oldest in Florida. Beautiful views from every room and the bars are all open to the sea. Casual and easy going with a "fun Vibe." Food was exceptional.

Love this place because of the ultra beach, boat and Water vibe, Kinda like something you'd find in Key west. The wedge salad is the best, but share it cause it is huge and if you like fried seafood also order the calamari or anything else fried as an appetizer, No need to order a big meal but Hubby had...

We had a wonderful evening sitting at the outdoor bar. The food we ordered, coconut shrimp, was excellent, and the beer and rum runner were good. The two young men serving drinks were very friendly and eager to please. The band was a pleasant distraction, especially since this time the singer could sing! Our only complaint was the Mojito which... More

Old Key lime house is a great place to get lunch, Dinner or drinks on the water. It's a fun atmosphere with a friendly staff and good well portioned food. They had great mahi tacos and conch/shrimp fritters. The fritters could be a meal in themselves. We ate here twice and had leftovers both times. Perfect place to get a... More

I love the place! It's right by the water with the good vibe. The food is on point, I always take the shrimps and sometimes a reg burger. Going there everytime I'm back in Florida!

After seeing a piece about this waterfront restaurant on the Travel Channel I couldn't wait to get the opportunity to check it out. It should be noted that the restaurant is located in a late 19th century wooden building and they bill themselves as the oldest waterfront restaurant in all of Florida. It's located right on the Intercoastal in Lantana... More

I was a little worried about this place when I read it had no A/C. It was not an issue. Sat on the dock with a great view and a great breeze. Had the crabcakes...we are really picky about crabcakes but these were billed as "Maryland Crabcakes." They were excellent with very little filler. We would go back there. (We... More
