I had a great coconut shrimp green salad at this easy walk up window restaurant. The salad was pretty big with several pieces of shrimp, fresh coconut and almonds. We sat on the stools looking out over the marina so it was a perfect last stop in the Keys. My husband had the shrimp burger which he said was "OK"... More

This is NOT fancy - it is just good food, nice service and fair prices. Pull behind the fishery to the Backyard Cafe where there is a nice covered porch with fans, clean decking and tables and uncovered seating. A huge menu - some of the things we tried: Combo basket (clams - fantastic, shrimp, maui), Lobster BST, Dolphin Cuban... More

I found this on TripAdvisor and snuck over one afternoon... great selection of fish and seafood, plus. Had the lobster reuben - yummy!!!! You sit outside near the docks, and we actually saw some guys on a docked boat catch a few fish right in the harbour area. Low-key, you order from a window and sit on their new deck,... More

We came here twice while diving in Key Largo. Walk up and outside eating but it is great seafood. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for fresh delicious seafood in the keys.

Wonderful place for lunch! It is right on the water and part of the fish market (does it get any fresher than that?). I got the "Lobster BLT" and was MORE than happy with my choice! It is all outdoor seating and very casual. We took a break from lounging by the pool to grab some lunch. Not to be... More

I love this place. We have family down in Key Largo and EVERY time we come down we eat here. I have eaten most of the things on the menu, so I can't say what is my favorite because it is all great. Miss Dotty's smoke fish dip is of course at the top of the list. I do buy... More

This place is perfection very time. My kids love eating here. Very cool place where you order at the window and you get a clicker. It lights up when your food is ready and it's exceptional every time. The fish is super fresh and the french fries are delicious. You see boats coming in and out of the marina and... More

The fisheries has grown up to become a local favorite for causal dining. Great fresh caught seafood prepared to-go or dinning on the premises. The restaurant is attached to the Fisheries seafood market where you can get seafood to take home to cook. A little known fact: When hurricane Andrew stuck south Florida, they gave free Ice to the local... More

This is a great place for lunch outside and then go to the fish market inside for fresh shrimp, fish or lobster. For lunch, the shrimp burger was the best. I've never had one and I don't know why. I'll be ordering that the next time I go.

Just a little of the main road. Well worth the time to find it. It's a lunch spot we will always go out of our way for. Everything we ordered was delicious.
