We ate from the restaurant menu and wasn't disappointed either. Staff are friendly....owner stopped by to say hello......and the chef here can cook!!!!! Happy... More

The restaurant was empty except for a few in the bar. It was our anniversary and the restaurant recommended by a co-worker. While there is no water view the staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable. The drinks were good and the atmosphere was enjoyable. Our whole meal was delicious and reasonable priced. We would try it again. Menu is small... More

This was our second visit to Ky West. I believe their slogan is "where the locals dine", or something like that. Usually a good sign for a resort town. Anyway, both of our dining experiences have been awesome. During our last visit in the fall of 2016, we sat in the main dining room. This time we had a cocktail... More

We have eaten here several times on weekend evenings and it never disappoints. Always consider the specials....freshest seafood with divine execution and tasty sides. Crab bruschetta is scrumptious-loads of lump crabmeat paired with fresh tomatoes and spices on a perfectly toasted, fresh French baguette. Spinach salad is amazing, Mahi Mahi with shrimp, tuna with grits, rockfish with a potato and... More

All I can say is that we will be coming back. Service was great, and the food was excellent. My girlfriend ordered the Oscar Filet and I got the Blackened Chicken and Penne. Both meals were fabulous. We met the owner and told him everything was perfect. We even had the owner's son as a server. He did a wonderful... More
