    We sat outside which was very comfortable. The beach is at your footsteps but had a lot of seaweed so need to be careful some days if to pick sitting outside or inside due to the smell. The food was average, was told this is one of the best restaurants in Key West but I would disagree. I had calamari for appetizer, average, although a good place for calamari is hard to find. The batter would fall off the calamari right when you would grab it with fork leaving only the calamari exposed. The blackened mahi mahi was chewy and slightly undercooked. The risotto was also average. The service was good although I felt they might be a little overwhelmed, maybe due to being understaffed. Overall very average restaurant and for the price would probably not return.

    This is the 23rd year we’ve had 4th of July dinner here. Amazing food, professional level service, and a clear view of the fireworks! What could be better? Key West shrimp appetizer was scrumptious. Grouper was so tender. Fabulous evening….again.

    Great experience dining at Four Marlins! My waitress was very friendly. I was stuck between some amazing choices and she helped me curate the best dining experience. For appetizer I had the conch and blue crab fritters which was absolutely amazing. For entree I had the miso grouper and truly loved every bite of it. Finished my dining experience with the mango brûlée with compote and oh my goodness it was delicious. To top off an amazing dinner, I had outdoor seating with a beautiful view and great weather to enjoy with my meal. Absolutely recommend enjoying a great meal here!

    The Summer menu seemed limited. The scallop appetizer was dry. My portion of tile fish was very small and over cooked. The other 2 with us liked the mahi dish. I use the Reach Four Marlins as a go to for company. I was disappointed. Also the ceiling fans were on super low in stagnant heat. More air flow was needed outside. Great view here!

    Update: My first review was for Town & Tavern! This is for Four Marlins.. Went for a late dinner after a hot day. It was warm in the restaurant and we were the only ones there. The doors were wide open to the hot sticky air, but our Server turned it down and it got cooler. The Islamorada IPA is great. The Calamari portion was stingy but tasty..too much breading not enough calamari. We had the Fish and Chips…lots of French Fries and enough Fried pieces of fish for 2, which was a good selection considering the $46 price! Thanks to the server for letting us know we were going to have enough with that one entree. Normally beautiful to sit outside but the heat was unbearable. No ambiance inside it felt like a cafeteria, try to go when it’s cooler and sit outside it’s so nice there.

    The venue & view were outstanding! The food was excellent quality but seemed grossly overpriced, even by today’s (new) standards. The kicker was paying $48 for a small (albeit good) portion of fish, and them still charging extra $ if you wanted any bread with your meal. That’s just rediculous. I mean, really??!

    Food is just mediocre and not worth the prices charged. Views are beautiful, but the decor is dated. Flies throughout restaurant (we were indoors). Service at tables was good (considering restaurant was empty on a Saturday night). Bar service friendly but very slow. Disappointing.

    Four Marlins is one of our favorite spots in Key West. Beautiful ocean view, great food, resort atmosphere and friendly service. The jazz brunch on Sundays with bottomless mimosas (orange, mango, pineapple or strawberry) is very enjoyable. Cocktails are amazing!
