I've eaten here a few times, and its always an experience. Their menu is varied so anyone can find something good to eat, and everything they make is excellent. I would definitely recommend the stuffed shrimp appetizer. The location (right on the harbor) makes for great views, and the fact that it is an open air restaurant makes the experience even more "Key West." They have the biggest bar from Havana to Miami, great live music, and a huge fish tank that I noticed kids seemed entranced by. Also, it seems like their huge dining room is perfect for large groups - I've definitely seen some in there. Overall, a fun place with great food.
Casual, on the water, and great fish!.
We ate their twice on a recent trip. We loved the location right in the marina, being able to see the boats and hear the water lapping. Our entrees were all wonderful (mahi mahi, grouper) and the drinks were good, too. The service ranged from absolutely excellent the first night to fairly good the second. If you want an absolutely quiet dinner, it may not be the place, but it isn't too loud, either. Especially if you get a table for 2 around the outer railings.
The Conch Republic is FANTASTIC!!!! My parents suggested to use their facility for an informal wedding reception...and I would not have had it any other way. They catered to our every need. Even when our wedding cake (order from somewhere else on the island) was too small for all of us, they gave us another cake. Six months after the wedding I went back down to KW & it was the first restaurant I went to!!
