Hot Tin Roof
Hot Tin Roof features bright vibrant colors indicative of the overall style of the Ocean Key Resort & Spa. The restaurant's 3,000 square feet of dining features indoor seating for 60 and an outdoor deck overlooking Key West Harbor, accommodating up to 40 people. The restaurant's lounge, Stage Door, serves a unique selection of themed signature cocktails and is highlighted with a custom-designed mural by Key West artist Jeff Beal. "It's a melange of tastes and fragrances, combining traditional Florida foods with Latin, Caribbean and tropical influences. It's funky, fun, and fresh with a broad range of tastes and sensations. The restaurant features a relaxed elegance with dramatic water and sunset views.
My husband had just come back from over seas and I wanted to have a nice dinner. So I called ahead and asked to get a table to see the sunset. I wasn't dissappointed it was a great table. We got our drinks right away and the food was very good. Our server even took time to take a picture of us. I would go there again.
We never had a chance to eat at Hot Tin Roof. We arrived at 7:45, having an 8pm reservation. We ordered drinks and waited, and waited, and waited with all the others. One lady fell asleep. An hour later the maitre d', noticing our impatience, asked if he could seat us outside. We then said no, as we had been sitting by a chilly draft while we waited. We said we were tired of waiting and he said he understood. If they would have offered us an explanation or a complimentary anything we might have stayed. We were very diappointed.
We celebrated our anniversary in Key West this past weekend, and had a wonderful dining experience here! We had a great view of the sunset (or would have if it hadn't been so overcast that there was no sunset), and while we had an outside table, all the tables inside also had nice views. The service was very attentive, and the food excellent and unique (Conch fusion). When we made the reservation, the hostess asked if it was a special occasion, so we told her it was our anniversary. They didn't make a fuss about it, but after dinner our waiter brought us the dessert menus and told us that there would be no charge since it was our anniversary. There was a couple at the table next to us who were also there on their anniversary get-away, and they received the same treatment, from a different server. We ate at the Commodore the night before, and they were both excellent meals with terrific service, food and ambiance, although they were quite different. They were in the same price range ($100 for two). All in all, we'd highly recommend it.
