Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You guys have been open the entire time and we want to thank you so much. It kept us from going crazy to get a little "normal" during this almost every day. We really appreciate that you deconstructed the to go food so it was fresh and nothing was soggy. Everyone was so nice and your great people have been wonderful to talk to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Stopped in on our way through Big Pine Key. So glad we did. Had the French dip...it was loaded with tasty, tender roast beef. My other half has buffalo chicken salad and said it was also very good. Plenty of chicken and flavor. Soledad was our server and she was perfect...great personality, great service. Will stop again next time in the Keys!

Restaurant changed hands recently but still the same food. They always give you more than you can eat, so we usually take something home. Pleasant atmosphere and service. We usually go there several times while on Big Pine.

Terrible take out I gave 2 stars because the chicken lark was ok but I ordered a shrimp Alfredo pizza it came with nearly no topping and one small drizzle of sauce. The whole pizza was basically dry crust with a few onion slices and I think 3 shrimp and literally that was it. I should’ve take a picture for this review. I think it was $20 for just pizza plus $10 delivery and driver tip and I ate 2 bites and threw it out because it was awful. Avoid this for take out. Haven’t eaten there in person so can’t say but I wouldn’t bother when there are other places to go.

Because we were a party of 2 we were seated quickly. Small restaurant so there would normally be a wait Meatloaf and beans and rice with shrimp ordered - very average. But the key lime pie was delicious I heard a lot of apologies at other tables- order messed up, long time to get food.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Key West. Reviews were outstanding and we used to eat there when it was Big Pine Diner I believe. Won't be back. Service was horrible, we sat for almost almost ten minutes before waitress brought us menus, then at least another 5 before she came and asked if we wanted something to drink. The place was NOT packed. Got our food and it was the worst breakfast we ever had. Not sure how you can screw up eggs, potatoes, bacon and such but they did. The egg tacos were dry and served without salsa, my dish was supposed to be smothered in sausage gravy, I don't consider one tablespoon as smothered. 6 hours later and still can't get the horrible taste out of mouths.

This was once a great restaurant...now...most of the seafood is off the menu, fried shrimp is mostly breading. My soup was cold. Not warm but cold. No soap in bathroom...how do employees wash their hands? My husband says men’s room was disgusting. Guest at nearby table were upset with their meal. Waitress was running around like a chicken with her head cut off. Guess she was a Piney Rooster, my bad. Sad that such a good restaurant took such a bad turn

We ate at the Rooster expecting it to be a shack atmosphere but inside was bright, clean and cheerful with light wooden beams! Our server, Mike, was great and attentive but not intrusive. We ate their conch fritters and although they could have used another minute of cooking, they were good. We had a fried shrimp (huge) and scallop dinner, a bowl of chowder (very good) and their crab cake dinner which was really good! We would definitely eat there again!!

The calamari appetizer melted in my mouth, probably the best I ever had. The conch fritters came out almost black. The soft shell crab was delicious but the shrimp and scallop basket was over cooked. It was a spicy dish so much that you could not taste the flavor of the food. Was expecting a fried plate with a roulade on the side, but was served with a spicy breaking then a lake of hot sauce was poured over. I eat spicy food all the time but you couldn't even taste what you were eating. There are a couple restaurants nearby that we will visit before coming back here

My husband and I ventured out for an early dinner, we visited at 5:15 PM. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our friendly server came to take our drink order and brought it within a minute. She told us about the daily special, which was coconut fried shrimp and scallops, topped with a coconut fried pineapple ring and mango salsa, Spanish rice and fresh green beans. We ordered the frickle appetizer, which was crispy and delicious, and came with a zesty dipping sauce. I ordered the special and my husband got the crunchy fish soft tacos. Both dishes were excellent, we finished all our food! Usually I take something home, but it was so good we both couldn't stop eating. Our server checked in from time to time, bringing us drinks and checking to make sure we were enjoying our food. The friendly service, great ambiance and delicious dishes will bring us back for more! So excited to have found a great spot for local flavors and great service.

K and I stopped here first last year and decided to try it again this year. Its a quirky beer and wine joint. We enjoyed a pair of cheeseburgers, cooked almost perfectly and a side of fries. I enjoyed a glass of Pinot Noir and K enjoyed a Cold beer. This is a quiet place to enjoy lunch, nicely decorated with multiple channels on the TV's. Don't know what it's like for dinner.

On a Sunday morning, we went for breakfast and we have a horrible services. Never get a re fill for coffee, water for the dog, and we need asked twice for water for our party of 4. One of the meals came 5 min after everyone was eating and with the wrong side ( we wanted potatoes not hasbrown). Also, the pico the Gallo slipped on my clothes when the server was giving the plates, and never apologized or offer something .. like napkins, we need to ask. We went inside to pay for the tap and we decide to tip 10% on our experience and services. Food was great thought. I will never do a review for this. But… Our review is based in the fact that another server from the restaurant approach to us while we are waiting to used the restroom and in a LOUDER voice she indicated we need to tip MORE. She says we need to tip following te suggestion tip, and handled the check book, we decided to change and add the additional $4. When we were doing this we tell her we can tip what we want based on our experience and that is why we are giving 10% only. She was asking what happened ?? We told her wasn’t the best services and in a rude way she crash the tip option to NOTHING and she says we don’t have to tip nothing. We are locals, leaving in Key West and Bay point for the last 10 years and I’m shock this happened to us. I would never go back .

I do not believe we have a server that would do this but if it did happen like this please contact us immediately with a description of the server so we may address it. If this did in fact happen we will immediately refund your meal and terminate or discipline the server. This would never be acceptable at our restaurant. We pride ourselves on a friendly family atmosphere, fantastic food and professional service. Please email me directly at employees AT bigpinerooster DOT com

We dined here Jan 2022. Picked because it had good reviews. My wife ordered a Pizza. I had the Lobster roll. After two bites of her Pizza she could not eat it as it had some kind of hot sauce on it. Waitress talked to the cook and the cook said there is nothing hot on Pizza. I tried it and agreed with my wife. So they obviously have no clue WHAT they are putting on the pizza. They did not offer to fix the problem by any means. Very sad. Lobster roll was large, but did not seem fresh.

This restaurant was not where we had planned to stop. When we got there there weren't a lot of people. We had our doubts. We were seated immediately and they could not have been nicer. We ordered tea that was not so great and she was quick to correct it. The portions were VERY generous and the food delicious. We had coconut shrimp, crab cakes, conch fritters, beer marinated shrimp, chicken alfredo, seafood pasta, and scallops and shrimp. We all left full and pleased with the meal. The service was top notch and like i said the staff was so nice. It started getting busy but the service was still top notch. I will definitely eat there again. The prices were not unrealistic for the portion sizes and the quality of the food. If you pass it you need to stop and eat there. It was so good

We were excited to visit Big Pine Rooster when in the Keys a few weeks ago. We read rave reviews online before visiting. The service was excellent and the restaurant itself is adorable, but the food was just okay. There were 6 of us and none of us liked the conch fritters. Each of the dishes we ordered were really average at best, and unfortunately, we wouldn't choose to visit this restaurant again.
