As a Caribbean born used to eating fresh fish in front of the beach, I have to say that the fish here was very very good, fresh and tasty. The ambient is very casual, plastic cups and nothing fancy at all. Hopefully you get a table looking over the water so you can enjoy the food better. We also tried... More

My friend and I arrived here with the intention of ordering a simple burger and beer. Walking up to the restaurant from the parking lot, there is no obvious entrance or signage leading us to the correct entry. We walked around to the other side to see if it might be there and ended up just walking up the stairs... More

I don't think most people would be dining here if it wasn't on the water. The service leaves a lot to be desired, if you do not eat fish... This is not your place. We had some guest in our group who ordered the large whole fried fish and they enjoyed it, the rest of us rated the meals so-so.... More

This restaurant is located within a state park in KeyBiscayne, Florida. Very pretty setting. We ate outside because we had a dog. I went upstairs to the restaurant to get menus. I advised the waiter that we were sitting downstairs. We waited approx. 15 minutes and no service. I had to go back upstairs to get a waiter who was... More

Boater's Grill you arrive by land and by sea. The food is very good, but the view and ambiance are also good. Their sea food is fresh, but they also make the Lechon of Miami...award winners. Fun time for the family!

Very loud. Waiters are to be called, they hit your table, move it by 2in and don't excuse for that. Steak is terrible!

This joint could be fabulous but it 's run down. plastic tables, plastic chairs, below average food, poor selection but above all, no life. it' s a pity because the location is super amidst vegetation and overlooking the lagoon and the structure could be super cool. but it's not...fried platanos ok though..

12:00pm on a Saturday with at least 10 servers standing around talking with each other. Took forever for someone to break away and offer us a table. Took twice as long to get a drink order. Seemed no one cared. Everything was a struggle. They didn't offer a lunch menu, we felt it was a bit pricey. Ended up sharing... More

At the far end of the Key Biscayne state park is this convenient little restaurant. They have some adventurous offerings of whole grilled fish. Great sights while eating on the deck. My wife got the fried mozzarella sticks (out of a bag I'm sure, but still tasty). I got the smoked fish dip. The waiter said it was salmon, and... More

I live very close to this restaurant. It always bothers me that I have to pay an $8.00 State Park entrance fee to access this restaurant. Had lunch with a close friend and had the Majuas (Fried Smelts) for starters, they were excellent ($11.95) although a very small portion for two. The Tostones (Fried Green Plantains) were very good ($4.00),... More
