So, on our second night, we went there. It was crowded when we arrived around 7, but we were immediately seated at a big umbrella-covered table. We thought the 10 person table was a bit large for our party of 4, but we enjoyed the room. Bread was quickly brought to our table and drink orders taken. As we browsed the menu, we decided that this would be our "expensive seafood meal" and we would get whatever we wanted. The waitress announced the specials, and my friend and I both thought the lobster tails sounded good (4 lobster tails for $26). We also ordered an appetizer of fried calamari with marinara (my new favorite seafood - YUM!).
However, after we ordered, the waitress came and said "I have some bad news." At first I was afraid that they were out of lobster or something terrible. But, no, a large party had come in and she asked if we would mind moving to a smaller table. Of course we didn't mind, but the waitress felt terrible and offered to buy us a round of drinks! Two of my friends had pina coladas, I had some kind of Key Lime sangria, and my other friend had a strawberry something. The drinks arrived with fun umbrellas and sparkly garnishes! My friends enjoyed their drinks, but I have to say the Key Lime Sangria was just not all that great. (I think I'm learning that Sangria is only good when it's homemade or from Spain!)
Our food arrived soon enough, and the lobster tails were VERY good dipped in melted butter. But, the best part of my meal was the green beans. They were the best green beans I've ever had - they were totally fresh and crisp and salted perfectly. My friend that ordered the same thing agreed, and she doesn't even like green beans!
Overall, I'd have to say that it was one of the best meals I had in Key West. The atmosphere was great, the waitress was cool, and the food was delicious!

Right after we gave our order, saws began sawing and hammers began to hammer - all within 15 feet of our table. Being a Friday afternoon, it looked as if a new outside bar was being built and it had to be completed in time for the weekend.
But despite the constant noise, which made it very hard for us to converse with our table companions, the food was quite good. We both had seafood quiche with a salad topped with a citrus dressing, while our friends had fish sandwiches.
