“Melt in your mouth…”
“This is a favorite local hang-out and one of our top picks in the Keys. In fact, we eat here about once a week and always run into lots of local celebrities. The eclectic menu includes really excellent wood-grilled local fish, prime steaks and a great sushi list. Mindy’s Ribs Appetizer are melt-in-your-mouth “gooey-good.” Also love the fried Eggplant Chips with spicy misonaise. For Sushi Rolls, you can’t beat the Kaiyo Roll – fresh Maine lobster, mango, avocado, cilantro, masago and spicy misonaise or the Island Star Dekiy Roll – spicy escolar and cucumber topped with Yellow fin Tuna and avocado with spicy misonaise.
When we’re not satiating ourselves at the Sushi Bar, we often opt for the gluten-free Macadamia Encrusted Hogfish with house-made Mango sauce. It’s crispy, light and absolutely delicious. Another favorite is the Cilantro-Glazed Ahi Tuna served over peanut sauce noodles with Thai-style vegetables. Even if you’re not a big sushi and fresh fish fan, you can still indulge on meatier items like the 24 oz. Bone-In Rib Eye, Lemon-Seared Chicken, Rack of Lamb or Wagu Beef Burger.”
“A welcomed change…”
“Ate here recently on a trip to Islamorada…there was an extensive sushi menu (including a few vegetarian options) and a lot of fresh seafood. I’m a vegetarian, and other than the sushi and a few small side salads, there were no other vegetarian options. I went with the veggie sushi which was actually pretty good…Given the alternatives in the area (small grille and bar places, etc), this was a welcomed change. I’d recommend here for a bit higher class experience (jeans is still acceptable attire though) and something different…..not often do you find good sushi in the smaller Keys.”
