Hot Tin Roof Ratings and Reviews

The food was okay but overpriced. We frequently dine out at restaurants in all price ranges. The view was much better than the food. The tuna appetizer was the best thing we tried. The food was very very bland overall.

Good food but the view wasn't as promised. We stayed in this hotel which comes highly recommended and the view from our balcony on the ocean front was stunning but the restaurant is on the first/second floor and the pier bar obstructs any decent view of the ocean. You would get view from the pool side but that overlooks the cruise port which is not as good as the front view. Food though was very good and not too badly priced given the calibre of the hotel.

We dined at Hot Tin Roof on a recent trip to the Keys and really enjoyed it. This is the second time we have had dinner here and enjoyed it just as much as the first. The restaurant has a great location and you can sit on the patio with a water view or inside. We chose to eat inside this time around and had a nice cozy booth. Our waiter Adrian did a great job of being attentive without being over bearing. We had another couple with us, their first time to the restaurant, and they seemed to really enjoy it as well. All of the food we ordered was prepared and seasoned well. The timing of the food was well spaced so we did not feel rushed. Overall a great meal and next time we are in the Keys we will definitely dine here again.

Great for dinner! Must sit at the balcony for sunset views. The best part of dinner is the menu: we just love the small plate choices. The tuna satay is a a must if you like tuna! Cook it to your liking at your table.

We dined here after our private Beach wedding in Key West. The service was excellent, the Food was great (Grouper & Swordfish). They held our wedding cake for us, and served it after the meal. We were treated extremely well by the staff, and it made for a memorable evening.

We had a wonderful family dinner! Service, food and view were fabulous. Will always go back when we visit Key West.
Although a little hard to find...you have to walk around the back of Ocean Key Resort and past the pier to find the staircase up...once inside, you'll realize its worth the effort.

Wow! What a great experience! From the point we walked in and was greeted to the food and of course, the sunset views. We had a spectacular table on the patio, which was a bit hot for us, so we dined inside at the bar. The service was flawless. Our food was delicious and nicely presented.

One of the best meals I've ever had. I ate way past fullness because it tasted so good. My husband and I really enjoyed everything about Hot Tin Roof. The service was perfect. The bathroom was fabulous. And we saw the sunset from where we were sitting. Very special. Can't wait to go again.

We have been going there for over 8 yrs
So on our 11 year anniversary we decided to go back
they had changed their menu which is fine
"try something new" you know
But even. There "corporate" menu sucks now

-Took Way too long between four people to figure out who is going to serve us ...,
-But most of all the bartender was very rude and hasty
-The manager tried to make it right he would've even take care of our meal and drinks , he was very sympathetic with us and promised to handle the staff
but we decided we wanted to be happy on our anniversary so we went somewhere else.
I firmly do not recommend this place any longer
Really sad. I use to loveeeee that Resturant

Despite having a reservation made several days ahead, our reservation meant nothing. We had to wait over an hour in the bar. I noted on the reservation it was for my wife's birthday and we'd be entertaining guests and wanted a table with a view.....nothing was accommodated! The hostess was unfriendly and the manager never stopped by or apologized for our wait etc. Chip our server though was outstanding and the food was delicious.

On the plus side the food and the view, especially of the sunset, are both great. On the negative side were the wait staff. The cocktail waitress made us feel like she didn't care we were there. The waitress was better, but slow and inattentive. The restaurant is billed as finer dining and it was my wife's birthday so we wanted a special evening. My wife and I love trying new places so we don't regret making the reservation, but probably will not be back.

I have eaten at Hot Tin many times, and never disappointed. Great food and outstanding service. The portions are smaller than anywhere else, but I like that I can actually finish my meal. Their small plates are awesome!

This was a great find. We made reservations and were offered seating outside or inside by a window table. We chose outside as a storm was coming and it was not warm. The hostess was fantastic and was very patient and helpful with our seating. She came back serveral times to check to see if we were ok. Our waiter again was not very friendly and had to work at being pleasant. We chose the small plate menu and had 3 entree's, crab cake, conch chowder, and calamari. All were fantastic and portions were larger than anticipated. The best part was the window panels on n the porch. They were on sensors so when the wind and rain changed directions they would automatically go up and down so you stayed dry! We left our table and had after dinner drinks at the bar area. Our bar tender was fantastic (sorry forgot name), but she made a superb Expresso Martini! We almost went back after our dining at Latitudes the next night! We would definitely recommend this stop while visiting Key West. Make reservations we were fortunate the cruise ships were not in and it was during the week, so we had a choice of times and seating!

You couldn't ask for a more beautiful place to dine- ESPECIALLY at sunset!! The food was incredible, the wine list comprehensive, and the staff accommodating and professional. Excellent choice for a romantic date night.

This is one of the best locations in Key West to watch the sunset, especially from the balcony...even though the average-sounding band on Sunset Pier was a little loud. The next best thing was the service, which was friendly and attentive from reception to waiter. On the other hand, the food was just good. The small bowl of conch chowder was rich in tomato flavor, with tiny pieces of conch; but the paella was rather bland and lacking in saffron flavor. The texture of the rice was more like a risotto than true paella, all of which dampened our enthusiasm and enjoyment. The range of the wine by the glass selection was pretty good. So, bottom line is we would recommend this place to our friends for the scenery, the ambiance and the service...and hope they find dishes they like better.

Overall, we had a pretty good experience. Our waiter was not very attentive. My biggest pet-peeve is having my glass of water run empty. Key West is very hot and humid in the summer and water is like your best friend. Also, if you have kids that like to drink soda, it is not fountain soda - it's bottle...so no free refills.
They have an interesting menu that allows you to order several small plates or large plates with some smaller sides. Our food was not as warm as I would have preferred, but it was still good.

Another smashing success by the Ocean Key Resort in creating a truly pleasurable and unique dining experience. Brunch, ordered off the menu, as much as you wish to sample or re-order, for a fixed price. The selection has something for everyone and the food is excellent. The service is impeccable and if you want to have a great brunch in Key West, Hot Tin Roof is the place. If you need any proof, there were as many locals on a Sunday morning having brunch as there were tourists. Nicely done, Hot Tin, nicely done.
