My wife & I held our rehearsal dinner at GTI a couple of weeks ago. They rented out the entire restaurant for us. Guests couldn't stop talking about the food, atmospher, live music (hat tip to Scott Youngberg) and service. Truly a great experience that was a perfect prelude to a great wedding weekend. Much thanks to Catering Manager Kathleen... More

Been here at least ten times over the years. For my money they have about the best Conch chowder and cracked Conch in the Keys. Have eaten everything from Mahi-Mahi to Grouper to Conch and shrimp, and every time left with a good feeling about the wholesomeness of the food and the value of the meal. It's nothing real fancy...

The breakfast was what we had here. Food was great but the service could have been better. She was good when she came around but she hardly came around. It was busy as hell in here buut the food was really good.

One of the best breakfasts in Islamorada. Have eaten there many times and have never had a bad meal. Love the fruit infused ice water! We used this idea in the boat for a refreshing drink and rinse on a hot day.

I'd read some reviews about this place getting kind of loud during games, but when we stopped in for breakfast it was nice and peaceful. The service was very good and the food was good but nothing special.

I had read great reviews of the restaurant before planning our trip, so I was eager to try it. However, when we tried to stop there for lunch around 1:00 pm, we were turned away. The explanation was that they had an overwhelming breakfast rush and the kitchen could not keep up. I truly appreciated the honesty but was disheartened... More
