Key Largo Fisheries Backyard Cafe is a reflection of a laid back keysie style restaurant with outdoor seating on a covered deck. We offer a diversified and delicious menu. We have quality seafood at affordable prices. You can come dine on our deck or take your fresh catches home to enjoy with the family. We also have a seafood market that houses a variety of Fresh from Florida seafood. From Florida Lobster, Stonecrabs, Yellowtail Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Grouper and Hogfish to freshly made salads like Smoked Fish Dip, Conch Salad and Ceviche. We have it all!!! We also provide free tours!!! Call ahead to schedule your free tour of a local, working fishery. We are a family owned and operated business that has been in business since 1972. Come see everything from how we fillet the fish to packing ballyhoo to watching the fishermen unload their fresh catches.

Doesn't get much fresher

The fish we had for lunch had been swimming early that same day. Grilled to perfection. Not a fancy place, but definitely worth the stop.

Excellent place for lunch! Walk up counter service at the marina. Beautiful, new, clean covered outdoor seating. Fresh catch served any way you can imagine - sandwiches, wraps, fried baskets, grilled platters. Also have a great selection of bottled beers.

This is an outstanding low key restaurant that serves fantastic food fresh from the boats. Located slightly off the beaten path, this open air restaurant has absolutely the best Lobster Bisque around. All their food is in the same category, fish, lobster bites, and seafood chowder. Not fancy (place your order, pick it up at second window), but make sure... More

This casual restaurant was great for good seafood at a reasonable price. We ordered the Mahi special and then went back for lobster bisc, seafood soup, and more beer. All on an outdoor patio surrounded with fishing boats. Unfortunately, discovered this place on our last night in the Keys.

My family and I are all so happy we went to the Fisheries for lunch. We were able to get some great,fresh seafood that all of us (even the toddler) enjoyed. This was better than most of the waterfront restaurants around, and without the tourist-trap vibe. Really nice staff and a seafood store on site as well. The ordering was... More

Very fresh seafood in a beautiful setting in a harbor. The lobster BLT is served on a croissant and is very tasty. Not sure how this place is #6 - the top places must be really good. Full line of beers (including Yuengling from PA).

Lobster BLT is excellent. All our seafood was very fresh. Fries were very good. Outdoor dining/takeaway only. They serve wine and beer. Music on weekends. No frills, just laid back Keys vibe.

Walk up to a window to place your order, grab a table and wait for your buzzer to tell you your order is ready at the Pick Up window. You are sitting outside under a roof -- nothing fancy at all but good food that is as fresh as you can get. There were four of us dining. One diner... More
