LOCAL TALK< back to topic list >
I am doing a destination wedding in Key West in April 2012 and going down in 2 weeks to check out some places for a reception... we are looking to do an extended cocktail hour or buffet reception...It's a very laid back/casual day so we looking for a beach-side, garden or open-air resturant to have the reception at... nothing major, just like a 2+ hour dinner and music... (not the whole wedding reception) since we are going to have a reception back in NY in the summer.
I have appointments at Kelly's and Southernmost Cafe so far. I also have emails and phone calls into Michaels and Mangoes.
Any suggestions and reviews welcomed :)

Check out the Reach Resort!! It's at the end of Simonton Street. They have an open air patio right by the beach that is great! We had our wedding there on the pier and there were absolutely no regrets. Their restaurant, The Strip House, is incredible as well. The view is awesome! Good luck!!
Hi! We got married May 2010 and had our rehearsal dinner at Bistro 245! It was great and I definitely recommend them! They reserved a private area for us outside on the Pier at sunset!! We had 30 people total and they were very accomodating! The view is aweseome and all of our guests raved about the food!
Have you tried Margaritaville? I heard that they do awesome parties!!
Thanks for all the info! As I mentioned I am going to KW in 2 weeks, so I will definitely check these places out :)

We had ours at the RoofTop cafe and the timed it perfectly to walk across the street to see the sunset at Mallory Square. I can't say enough how pleased we were with the RoofTop!!! We got so many compliments!
I checked out a ton of places throughout the keys and felt that the Southernmost was exactly what I was looking for. We had a station/buffet reception for 85 people. Our wedding was great and I would not have wanted it any other way. Here's a link to our pics...
@jhanley3 I came across the Rooftop and I definitely like the look of that place and sent them an email!
@sgieda - Those pics are amazing! Thanks for sharing!! We'd definitely prefer something on the beach but we'll see how it is with our budget.
Thanks again :)

I really wanted Rooftop Cafe but we have 100 guest so idk where to go. have you looked at the Hemmingway House? i've seen pictures and it's amazing!!!!
@melinda - I'm thinking that beach or Smathers... I am going to meet with a planner and look at both beaches and check them out.
@MBankz - Haven't looked into the Hemmingway House but I will!
Thanks again everyone :)
