We ate our appetizer with our fingers! No bread no silverware no clue what they were doing. Place was empty. Wanted us to sit outside in the heat with my 81 yo mom!!! Facing Hairy and the Henderson sitting by the pool. Would NOT recommend

Restaurant is located in Case Key Resorts. You walk all the way through hotel to the pool area. Restaurant seating was next to tiki bar. There was inside seating available but we sat outside. Great listening to guitarist but hot sitting there. Service was good.

Guests going by to swim or to the tiki bar walk right by your table. Not very private or personal. I ordered a filet. I got a NY strip which was the wrong steak and wasn’t cooked correctly regardless Of what steak it was. They then told me oh we don’t have fillets. It was no surprise nobody was there. I took my boyfriend for his birthday and left in tears as it didn’t at all live up to the hype. Wouldn’t go back.

The entertainment, a guitarist, did not blast us, we were actually able to conduct a conversation and hear each other talk. Four different meals . . beer battered flounder, two different kinds of pizza and prime rib. Very pleased with table service. Outside dining near the pool. A very pleasant experience. Definitely going back!

Food average. Finding the dining room all but impossible. Sat at a completely bare table for 5 minutes before a server showed up then didn’t bring menus. The bread didn’t arrive until the middle of the meal. Most items on the menu were MARKET PRICE. ??? The scoop of ice cream for desert was very tiny. Appetizers spaghetti soup. WTF ? I will not go there ever again.

Food was good. But, I suggest waiting until the dining room is completed. Website should have forewarned patrons. It was rather off-putting.

However, the service at this "fine dining" establishment may be the worst I have ever experienced. Our bus boy immediately came over with water and menus as we self-sat ourselves. It then took our waiter about 10 mins to realize someone sat down (we were the only party seated in this space). We ordered 3 margs and 1 specialty drink. 15 minutes pass, waiter brings one drink....another 10 mins pass and finally the three margs show up. Mind you, this is a tiki bar / fine dining establishment. The drinks were all delicious, not quite "wait 25 mins delicious", but still very good. 30 minutes in we place our food orders. Shrimp/Pasta, Tripletail, Scallops & Black & Blue burger. We also had a crab cake appetizer and she-crab soup. Crab cakes were amazing, perhaps again, the best any of us at the table have ever had. The soup came out with my entree...not sure why that happened, but it was good, though I would have preferred with dinner. Food was absolutely fantastic, easily 5 stars. However, the service, or lack thereof, will keep me and my guests from returning until they figure things out. I don't blame the waitstaff, I blame whoever is managing them. Our waiter was like a deer in headlights as a few more tables came in. I actually had to let him know a table sat down and were waiting for service for about 15 minutes. This place has the potential of being incredible. We loved the tiki bar/pool vibe happening. If we do happen to go again, I'll only order a beer or wine and we'll eat at the bar. BTW, just to be clear, the bar area was about 50% full, pool area 20% and we were the only table in the restaurant when we initially sat down. We so badly want this place to make it!

We understand short staffing but the "restaurant" only had 2 tables busy and the one waiter waited 10minutes before taking our drink order which took us reminding him 20 minutes later to bring. He came back 3 times to recheck our food order as he didn't write it down properly and we had to search for him to ask for the bill.

Seating is only poolside, drinks are served in plastic cups. This is not communicated anywhere on the website or when booking reservations. We have dined at the previous location in Sarasota. The new location does not provide accommodations one would expect based on the caliber of the menu. We left and went to Mattison’s 41 for dinner.

I’m so glad we went! Every one in our group of four enjoyed our meals. Two of us had the triple tail special and the other two had other fish dishes from the menu. The sides and appetizers we chose (grouper ceviche, Buffalo cauliflower, sautéed spinach) were delicious. We really enjoyed LuRae as our waitress and seeing Chef Rolf working in the kitchen. We will definitely be back!

Service was good and at a comfortable pace to enjoy an evening out with live music in the background. The setting along side the pool was perfect but will look forward to the new indoor/outdoor restaurant in a few month time.

THE ONLY SERVICE AVAILABLE WAS OUTSIDE ALONG SIDE THE POOL. The Valentine special menu was not that appealing and pricey. Not the place for a nice quiet special dinner.

We ended up leaving before eating. We arrived at 11 for Valentines Day lunch and was told no lunch til 12 and it is served out by the pool. No thanks. Didn’t read the reviews before going because we had dinner at the old location and had enjoyed it. I wish I had read the reviews. Sounds like there is no return to the previous fine dining. Sad to drive 40 minutes and have to find another place for lunch but sounds like we got lucky by not eating there.

This is NOT fine dining. Because it is poolside everything needs to be served on plastic. No wine glasses. No glass dishes. Everything plastic! Even the kitchen is poolside- very small. We ordered a burger, pan seared grouper and a pizza. The grouper was dry and the pizza never arrived until the other two dishes were eaten. The picture in the online photo gallery are not this location. Very disappointing!

The restaurant seating surrounds a pool where children were quite loud. Because of the pool, all food and drinks are served on paper/plastic. While my husband loved his cod, the rest of us were not overwhelmed by our steaks. Side of asparagus a pile of mush, and mashed potatoes were cold on arrival. For the price, the food just didn't wow anyone. Our waiter was excellent. Perhaps once they get over the glitches with the fairly new opening, we will give it another try.

Had to ask for bread, ask for water, ask for soup spoon. Waiter tried to serve our dessert before we even got our entree!! Plastic plates, wine served in small plastic cups. Not what one would expect for dining at Chef Rolf’s.

But overall it was great, the grouper sandwich was crunchy and hot and the potato soup was so hot I had to wait for a little while before I could eat it.

Cool vibe overlooking the pool and tiki bar. On Friday they had live music, which we enjoyed. The wine was served in plastic cups and the dipping oil for the bread was served in a styrofoam bowl. This was disappointing and didn't match the more elegant food offerings. We all ordered filets and prime rib. The beef quality was good, however, every meal was over cooked. We ordered medium and medium rare and they all came out WELL DONE. We didn't really enjoy our meals, but the restaurant was short handed so we accepted the meal. The presentation was cool--filets were served on a wooden plank. The table next to us ordered a pizza and it was huge! The 4 diners seemed to enjoy it and even took to go boxes home as they couldn't eat it all. It appears they have big renovation plans for this hotel. This restaurant certainly has potential if they can fix the chef errors, upgrade the stemware and get rid of the styrofoam! This would be a great local place to relax and enjoy dinner if they can correct the basics.

All 3 of us loved our entrees. The live music was terrific. It was good we were not in a hurry as the wait staff were very busy. Seems a few more waiters would have been appreciated. We loved sitting poolside, wonderful to dine outside, and enjoyed the sunset after-glow over the building.

It was a weekday night and there was only one other table with guests and the musician. Only one staff person made an effort to assist us while the others stood around the bar and talked to each other. My husband was disappointed in the quality of the hamburger he ordered and we would not recommend the restaurant to our friends.

($17.00 dollars for grey goose martini in a small plastic cup)The calamari wasn’t cooked long enough the coating was very soft and undercooked. Our fish and filet dishes were very good.The atmosphere around the pool with kids playing and the great band extremely loud took away from the fine dining expectation of the menu. If you go for a beer and pizza around the “tiki” bar area you’ll have a great time.

My dinner should have come with salad/soup but never offered by waitress. She claimed she was new but looked like she was wasted and didn’t really care. We were seated outside by the pool. There were kids running around screaming and a band playing. This made it too loud for any conversation with our guests. There are too many other good restaurants nearby so we won’t be back.

No furniture ready to sit inside.

Didn’t realize it was going to be outdoors in the pool area in a old motel under construction. Menu intriguing.. cocktail served in a plastic soufflé cup. Chef very helpful on menu selections. Service only partly ok in terms of being helpful and attentive. Table setting basically cheap bequest table and chairs. Lousy place to take your bride for a 46th wedding anniversary. Mosquitos. We love patronizing independent restaurants….but this ????

The prime rib special was cooked perfectly, and the she-crab soup had a unique presentation with greens and a crab cake on the side. Dining next to the pool with live music in the background made for a delightful evening. The Discerning Diner.

The food how ever not so great! The Crab legs were the worst I have ever had! The fish was ok! New Years Eve and I would say $60 for my meal was not worth it! The prices of the food do not fit with the atmosphere
