It is located in the state park on Key Biscayne so you will have to pay $8 just to get there. We went for breakfast and we were the only ones there. They don't open until 9 but there is plenty of stuff to look at while you wait. Be sure to take your bug spray, the mosquitos are bad... More

My wife and I each had the fish special, with different sides. The fish was good, the sides were not. The service was hit or miss, but always indifferent. Do not make a special effort to eat here, but if you are in the park, at least you won't go hungry.

One would never guess that hidden between the quarters of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. While the food may not be much to rant about the service and the surroundings are spectacular. Amazing sunsets can be caught at the well maintained sidewalks and walkways and boaters mooring at the nearby cove is the perfect romantic environment for couples and... More

The view from the deck adds a lot to the experience. This place is very casual, plastic plates and glasses so don't go there if you are expecting fancy. Service was good, plastic chairs need to be upgraded. Menu is not extensive but what they have is good.

As a visitor to Miami, I had the grave misfortune to go to "dinner" at the Boater's Grill on Saturday May 3. There were five of us at table, and four of us ordered grilled red snapper. In spite of that we all got pan fired tilapia. The french fries were so dry that they were probably cooked at lunchtime... More

I took my niece here for dinner as it was the only restaurant in the park, and it was amazing. We both had shrimp scampi... But save room for dessert cause their homemade guava cheesecake and key lime pie are worth the wait! Service was a little slow but the food was wonderful!

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
