Pretty darn good. Fantastic location under the palms on the water at sunset. Fresh fish actually tasted like fresh fish which is increasingly rare. Our waitress was a bit abrupt but quite attentive, and a pro. I wish we had gone back tonight, we went to another place down the street not the water that was lousy. When you find a good place while traveling, it is smart to go back because you might not find one better. This place is good.

This restaurant has amazing views and is so cute. Unfortunately, that’s the only thing it has to offer. Our waitress, Kiara, was terrible. I don’t think she even said hello to us, and by looking at the other tables she was serving, it looked like she was consistently bad. The food was bad. The tacos we ordered were ok in flavor but very small portions. The chicken sandwich had no flavor. The key lime pie we were looking forward to was WARM like it was sitting out all day. I don’t understand how this place has such high reviews. I would never recommend this to anyone. There are much better restaurants in the area with better food, service and the same views.

My husband and I decided to stop in for a quick lite-bite, and a couple of drinks, on our way back from Islamorada to Tavernier. We arrived at 5:15 pm, and wanted to sit on the beach but were told if we wanted light bites we had to sit father back, next to the bar, even with only 2 of the other tables being occupied. That was odd but whatever. So we sat at the bar and ordered the mahi and shrimp tempura tacos. They were incredible !!! The bartender ended up being really great and friendly and we loved the food and drinks. Other than the confusing and a little off-putting welcome with the table situation we'd definitely return.

We sat outside on a lovely night. Waiter was very unpersonable and didn't seem to want to be there. Menu was average choice wise. We got fish and veggies which were tasty. Flies swarmed us when food came. No candles or bug repellent provided by staff.

Never going to Miranda Bay again. They are king of the road. Don’t need any business. Last 3 times I called - no reservations taken - show up and closed for private event. Not wasting my time again. And to top it off, they treat you like crap when you show up! Plenty of great places down here without them.
