We had a great meal here and would go again. Our grouper and snapper were delicious, the wine is generously poured, and service is friendly and attentive. BEST KEY LIME PIE in the Keys. (okay, we only had five slices in three days, but this was the best one...)

We have been coming here since it opened.Our visit this time was disappointing.The service was good but too quick, in and out the door in 30 minutes with a bill of $75.00 no apps or dessert.food was lacking sauces and the blackening spices were off.Even the BL tasted stale

This was the first restaurant we went to on the Keys. It was on our list of places that rated high in TA reviews. We were seated outside, brought water and menus and then were ignored for 1/2 hour. In this time, wait staff walked past us at least three times, seated others near us, and totally ignored us. We... More

Looking for a good place to eat on my week long birthday celebration drive down the coast and read about this gem of a spot that was not to miss, so glad we made the stop because this was freaking awesome! We had the blackened Mahi Mahi with yellow rice and grilled zucchini, onions and mushrooms cooked to perfection and... More

We stayed at Pelican Cove in Islamorada and upon check-in they gave us a list of 'recommended' restaurants in the Islamorada area. We ate at some of those restaurants recommended by PC but Ma's Fish Camp was NOT on this list. It was by happenstance we ate at Ma's Fish Camp and it was BY FAR the best meal that... More

A friend recommended we buy a pie and take it back to our rental place in Marathon. For a whole pie you must order a da ahead. We decided to do it and come back the next day to pick it up. After coking our fish we just caught on Captain Jeff's charter that day (best fish ever) we finally... More

Prior to setting out for our recent kayaking adventure at Pennekamp, TeamTurpin checked into TripAdvisor to find a nearby lunch spot. There are lots of good options on Islamorada, but the reports from Ma's just sounded intriguing. We chose it and are glad that we did. We arrived on a Thursday around 1pm. The place was empty (which is concerning).... More

The New England clam chowder and fish tacos were very good. I didn't think I was hungry but I ate it all. The key lime pie was good. The service was friendly and attentive.
