Stopped at happy hour on the outdoor balcony 3 times during the month of February. Experience was different each time, with service ranging from very good to average. Cigar smoking is allowed outside and we took advantage each time, while trying to isolate our party somewhat to not upset non smokers. Overall, happy hour drinks and appetizers were good, had dinner once and was not really impressed. Food comes from downstairs/next door and is difficult to keep hot.
Conch fritters, oysters, wahoo dip and peal and eat shrimp (all from happy hour menu) were very good and a good value for the price. Place was not very busy except for Wednesday sing along night. Sunset view from the balcony was usually beautiful. My advice: come for happy hour drinks and snacks, skip dinner.

Unique decor inside. Nice view outside. Nice atmosphere with chickens on the grounds, aka Key West. Good raw oysters and
coconut shrimp. Went back more than once.

While visiting World Wide Sportsman, we had lunch/dinner up stairs in the lounge. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in many years visiting the Keys! I had Blackened Shrimp and Scallops Alfredo. My wife had Fish and Chips with sweet potato tots. She loved hers too! Also was the appetizer, Wahoo dip with crackers! Unbelievable!!!!! She had a Morris Mule to drink (very refreshing!) and I had a Budweiser. Great food, views, alfresco!

There was a 2 hour wait at the restaurant downstairs, so we were offered the option of going upstairs to Zane Grey, where they serve the same menu. We were seated right away, then proceeded to wait. When we finally received our food, it was good (I enjoyed the grouper Rueben), but it was clear that the staff was overwhelmed. Also, given that the food must be transported upstairs, it did not arrive hot. Nice sunset though.

Loved having the guy playing the guitar, that was nice! The view is lovely. The food was not that good, it was average to below average--especially for the prices they charge. The service could have been way better! They don't like to split checks and got pissy about it and wouldn't split them all. VERY slow on food coming out and then didn't offer more drinks or clean up the table. But save your money on the alcohol drinks, had the Mojitos and I'm pretty sure they forgot the alcohol -- it was not a four count pour that is for sure!!!!!
