We had a terrible experience here. We started with dinner then drinks. Food was okay, but very overpriced! Then after dinner it went from ok to really bad... we were enjoying our drinks and in came 4 people with 3 dogs! Sat down next

Having visited this restaurant five times over the past eight months, I can honestly say the service and food has been inconsistent. On my most recent visit yesterday, a friend and I came specifically for the $7 lunch special (which I had

A very good local restaurant featuring an attractive menu with an old time Florida Keys decor. However, new ownership has allowed the operation to slip a bit. The menu remains varied, attractive and creative with many fresh local seafood selections and a nightly special or two but for no apparent reason the service at times can be slow to non-existant. Should that be the case on your visit, rather than wait until you're upset, seek out the manager and ask for a server. Food quality remains quite good but not quite up to previous standards. Still, Mama's is worth a visit. The sunday Eggs Benedict, Crab cake Benedict or Filet mignon Benedict are excellent. Dining inside is pleasant in the tropically painted atmosphere and the patio is quite nice most evenings but during mosquito or no-see-um season the patio can be uncomfortable and you may spend more time swating and scratching than enjoying your meal. The tiny bar off the patio is a favorite local hangout and serves a complete selection of cocktails. Seating at the bar is very limited but some table seating is available. Mangrove Mama's is certainly worth a visit and the new owners seem to be making a sincere attempt to maintain the reputation of quality food while working on the service issues.

There's an amazing chef in this kitchen. I had a seared scallop dish that was beautifully presented and wonderful. They also had the best conch sandwich (of the three places we hit). Their key lime pie is sublime. =) It's a perfect balance between sweet, tart and creamy. The key lime pie martini is also a must try.

We only stopped here to get out of the rain and have a cup of coffee. We arrived between lunch and dinner and could only get beverages and snacks in the smoky, local-filled bar. What we discovered was an absolutely amazing key lime pie. They don't sell whole pies to go, though.
