We had a very good dinner at Blue Heaven. We started with a couple of bowls of a special corn lobster chowder. It had maybe too much cream in it, but did not suffer at all from a lack of lobster -- there was a lot of lobster meat in it. Two yellowtail snapper dinners were very good, as was the BBQ'd shrimp. A piece of key lime pie was a great finish.

Our waiter, Jobie, was excellent -- very friendly and helpful.

The funky, freewheelin' devil-may-care Key West charm and character of three decades ago is mostly history, due to crass commercialism and cruise ships, but Blue Heaven still remains.

This weird, wild and wonderful place is unique, fascinating, quirky, eclectic, and I've never had I meal I didn't absolutely love. The local-source seafood is invariably fresh-out-of-the water and expertly prepared to showcase exquisite local flavors; veggies are just-picked fresh and artfully selected to complement the seafood. Service is Key-West-laid-back, but professional and attentive. Dining is under the stars and gently swaying palms and natural flowering vines; the floor is meticulously swept sand, and the tables are not crowded. To add to the ambiance, feral chickens (and the occasional Hemingway six-toed cat for historicity) roam under the tables and no doubt drive the Health & Safety Department weenies completely nuts. All in good fun; this ain't some stuffy Boston eatery; you in da Islands, Mon.

Bravo, bravo bravo, Blue Heaven!!!

100% of SAS with the quality of food that comes out of that kitchen. The entertainment of the live chickens the friendly atmosphere and just how family-orientated they seem to be as a whole unit. I really enjoy their macro bowl by Chef Dave there. Definitely obsess Worthy. Thank you so much. Every time I come in I feel like royalty. They're just so friendly I don't think that they'd remember me time however I definitely feel VIP every time I enter there

Great breakfast - and delicious drinks - on a Saturday morning. There is a wait/line but once you put your name down, you can get a drink at their bar across the road and even take your drink to go, and go see the lighthouse or walk by the Hemingway house. They also had live music. The bacon egg and cheese sandwich was awesome. My husband loved the lobster BLT Benedict. Highly recommend this breakfast spot!
