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. <br /><BR><BR><br />"It's a mélange 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.

"With a 6pm reservation, we were warmly welcomed and promptly seated. The bar prepared an excellent Sazerac which is not often available. Close to Mallory Square and sitting higher above the Gulf, this restaurant has a direct, breathtaking view of the Key West sunset and the sailboats. We were offered a table on their covered open air balcony, which was a bit hot in the setting sun, so we took a booth just inside with the AC. The service was attentive, the food delicious. Definitely on our list for next time."

"We were looking forward to dining at the much heralded Louie's Backyard, and arriving ten minutes early for a 6pm reservation, we were taken to the Afterdeck, an ocean front open air bar/lounge. Immediately we realized we would not be able to actually see the complete Key West sunset as implied on the website, also not able to see it from their Upperdeck. We had to pay for our drinks separately since the Afterdeck is separate from Louie's. We were seated for dinner at a noisy, smokey table next to the bar even though many, many tables were unoccupied. After some effort the maître d' coldly changed our table. The wait staff seemed inexperienced, the food was outstanding, but at this price point one expects no less."

Set in historic Herndon, the Russia House Restaurant offers Russian hospitality and culinary excellence in all its details. The restaurant opened in July of 1992 by the friendly owners Ali and Homeyra Darugar, and together they created an atmosphere of aristocratic dining with classic cuisine, with the warm feeling that you are dining at your aristocratic grandmother’s table. Mrs. Darugar moved from Russia with her grandparents to Switzerland, where she learned to cook in her grandmother’s kitchen. She brought her great culinary talents here to the United States and created the exquisite menu and served as the head chef in the first few years the restaurant was opened. The restaurant features Russian, Continental and Georgian cuisine with a French flair.
