A must do experience in Key West

This is a tiny seafood market on Eaton St. with a phenomenal selection of seafood and accessories for preparing your own meal, but also a great place for a daytime meal. Make sure you don't miss it as they close at 6 p.m. most days and 4 p.m. on Sundays. Lobster rolls, grouper sandwiches, shrimp... read more

If you're renting in Key West, and looking for the freshest fish, this is the place! We tried the supermarkets, but were disappointed in the offerings, so we checked around and found Eaton Street, because it wasn't far from our place. We bought yellow tail, grouper, and backjack. All of them were fresh, beautifully cleaned, and trimmed. The fish market... More

Try the fresh grouper or snapper sandwich. The crab cake sandwich was fantastic. The fresh Lobster roll was better than any restaurant in Maine. Lots of lobster meat. We highly recommend this place. Very Casual setting. You'll love it Joe and Ann Gauvin

Maybe my tastebuds aren't what they used to be, but I felt that a more flavorful sauce would bring their sandwiches alive. Good fresh fish is usually hard to come by, so they do deserve credit.

Whenever we are home this little gem is a must stop, the service is hometown feel, even with tourists milling around. We have put together many a fine Conch dinner with goodies from this little secret on Eaton St. The crab cakes are killer, great conch dishes and lot's of neat stuff, oh, the key lime mustard is the best...

I love restaurants that do only a few things, but do them perfectly. Thats what this is. It isn't really a restaurant, its a store/takeaway with a few chairs inside and a few out front. Just get the lobster roll....that's it. Perfectly fresh, in grilled sweet bread.....just perfectly simple. They are friendly, sell great fish to take away also -... More

Not worth the hype. Housed in an interesting Art Deco relic of a building, the seafood selection is tiny, sparse and mostly frozen? I was expecting fresh and huge. Ordered a shrimp salad croissant which was $10, and although the shrimp tasted fresh, the croissant was less than fresh, tasteless and small and not worth the high cost. We were... More

They mostly sell fresh sea food to locals, but also prepare some simple snacks/meals. the store was clean and offered fresh daily catch seafood from local fisherman. I grabbed a dozen oysters on the 1/2 shell (they shucked them for me) for $.65 EACH. where will you... More

For lunch I had crab cake on croissant and my wife had shrimp salad on croissant. There is one communal table outside and food is brought out to you. This no frills with decent food albeit a bit more mayo than either of us would have liked. We came back a couple of days later and bought fresh salmon which... More

My wife and I walked the whole island looking for stone crabs! You would not think that a difficult task - but for whatever reason it was! If you want the best option for stone crabs in key west - they cook them and crack them and provide the key lime mustard dipping sauce. We purchased a few pounds and... More
