Great Place

This reminded me of the "fancy yet old" type of restaurants. You have to remember that Key Colony began back in the 30's-40's and a lot of the buildings are original, just updated. This restaurant has a huge selection. The meal portions are huge so sharing or "leftovers" to take on the boat will be... read more

What a find! Classic old style Keys restaurant with lots of ambiance. Gourmet selections at unbelievable good prices. The food was much better than we expected. So good that we dined twice during our week in the area. Piano at dinnertime just added to the experience. Our Waitress Tracy was fantastic. We requested that she be our waitress the second... More

This was a great place to eat. The only down fall was the server tried to rush us and ask if we were ready to order before we opened the menu! We asked for water, she brought it and ask again if we were ready to order! This pattern continued through the entire meal. The food was excellent, tasty and... More

We went for drinks, rude locals were harassing another local couple to the point of tears for one woman. The locals laughed and clapped when the couple left. The bartenders and staff let it happen and we were the bad guys when I brought it up. Disappointed and will never go back. Not a good atmosphere, no good views, food... More

This is a good restaurant for couples, double dates and solo travelers. It's good for families for breakfast (check out the buffet!) or lunch, but the mood gets fancier come supper time. One side is dedicated to the restaurant while the other half has a piano bar. Most of the dishes are Italian, a little heavy on the cheese but... More

I have eaten in this restaurant several times and it never disappointed me. The early bird special at $14 can't be beat. The stuffed Mahi was great and I would order it again. They also have a man playing the piano during dinner time. I will always eat here atleast once when I visit the keys. This place is a... More

This is an amazingly good restaurant! A little off the beaten path, lots of locals, and the best food ever. If you're in Marathon you should put this place on your list. You will be glad you did!

Our son chose Key Colony Inn for his birthday dinner after reviewing Trip Advisor reviews. Yes, the decor and atmosphere screams 70's but it was such a nice change! It feels like a 1975 country club dining room but that's perfectly ok and suits Key Colony Inn perfectly! Servers and staff are super friendly and efficient and we enjoyed speaking... More
