Totally! We took our 6 and 7 year olds. You can write on the tablecloths (paper over linen) and there are crayons on the tables. There are also kids menus. :)

As I understand it, the term is 'slang' for a bale of marijuana that drug smugglers would drop into the ocean current from a plane to be carried to the Keys and be picked up there. I guess it makes sense. Anyway, that's what... More

Innovative fresh local seafood. House Smoked Fish Dip is phenomenal, a definite "must try"!! Our Conch Chowder and our Key Lime Pie are also something you should not miss. We also have a great Square Grouper Fish Sandwich, 16 oz Grilled Ribeye (Certified Angus Beef!), Salads and lots of small plates to share...Flash Fried Conch with ponzu and wasabi. We are open on Mondays from the last week in December thru April! We close every September from the Sunday AFTER Labor Day and reopen on the Thursday BEFORE Columbus Day Weekend.
