For the comfort of leaving your boat there and eating

The place is by no means a great place, but its a pretty cool place to go with your boat and have a quick bite to eat. The service isn't great and neither is the food, but the view from the second floor is very nice, and its a laidback boat day kind of feel.

I have never paid so much for a plate of Paella that contained so little. The pictures on their web site are beautiful DO NOT BE MISLEAD. The prices of whole fish are more than anywhere else and it was very dry. Also if you are not a regular please don't expect to be treated with the same level of... More

Very casual. Food, depending on what you order can be excellent or very poor (sometimes too much oil cooked several times) Watch out! But best view on a beautiful bay. Service very good.

Food was awful as was service. Don't waste your time. Got a cheeseburger and fries, was informed they do not have pickles. Ridiculous.

This place is absolutely casual with fresh seafood and an incredible location named "No Name Harbor". At Boaters Grill you will find fresh Snapper, Paella, Ceviche, and cold beer!

Really excellent fresh seafood (superb calamari and delicious ceviche). Friendly service, informal and relaxed atmosphere. Nice long walk to get to it along the beach too.

We have eaten at Boater's Grill each year when we have visited Key Biscayne. The atmosphere is very casual, but the food is quite good. And you can't beat the view of No Name Harbor.

I am not surprised by other reviews stating that this is a good place for a meal, with a Cuban based theme. We did sample the food and found it fairly good. What I find ironic are the reviewers' comments about enjoying the harbor view with all the "yachtsmen". Speaking from the point of view of one of those "yachtsmen",... More

I would highly recommend this place for a low-key, yet very high-quality seafood lunch. Plastic chairs on the veranda are the order of the day, but don't let this image fool you - the food is top-quality - the best we had in a week in Florida and keys! Try the fresh Conch Fritters, the Seafood Paella or fresh Snapper... More
