Ziggy's Conch in Islamorada - is it still open and, if so, how is it?

Would love some casual reviews, as we're thinking of making it a stop enroute down the Keys this week.

Ziggy's reopened recently after being closed for a while. Jim "Mad Dog" Mandich (ex-Miami Dolphin from the 1972 perfect season team) is now a co-owner and the new name is "Ziggy and Mad Dog's". I have not been in there, but from what I have heard the place is a little higher quality than it was, but more of a steakhouse that serves some seafood rather than a seafood restaurant that serves some steaks. So while the place is worth a try for its own sake, if you loved the "Old" Ziggy's you might be disapointed.

Thank you. And the key lime pie and conch? Things of the past? Or arrive frozen from Miami?

Hmmm, I havn't heard, but FYI it is illegal to harvest queen conch in Florida, so all conch you get served in Florida comes from somewhere in the Caribbean and probably arrives frozen in Miami before shipped to seafood dealers......

Ziggy's may not be the OLD "Ziggy's Couch" The food and wait staff are wonderful. anyone going to Islamorada Fl. this is one of the "don't miss to eat".Couch is shipped in the U.S.A. now.If you try it at "The Island Grill" in also, Islamorada Fl. Keys is to die for!The veiw, food (all kinds steaks,seafood and great spiecals),music and nice wait staff. I go there every time I'm down in Islamorada Fl.
