Our restaurant atmosphere is warm and friendly. Our food is prepared delightfully light, healthy and flavorful. Our seafood is grilled with lovely toppings - and if you desire fried, we fry in rice oil for good health. We do have delicious, made in house desserts including our Awarding winning traditional Key Lime Pie, German Chocolate Cake and locals favorite Hummingbird Cake. MA's also has a desirable Wine and Beer menu.

Ma's.......Good Food, Good Location

Ma's Fish Camp is a solid, solid eatery in Islamorada with a menu for both adults and kids. We had the BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp to start which was outstanding. Followed up with the main entrees of shrimp and grits for me while the kids had a burger (which was huge) and more shrimp followed by an... read more

Nothing fancy but who needs fancy in the keys. Fresh fish every time we have been there. Nice desserts and nice size portions. Can't remember if we had hogfish or monkfish but it was the special and very tasty. In off season be sure to call for their hours.

We needed a lunch snack and stopped in at Ma's Fish Camp. Service was slow and food was slow to deliver. We really enjoyed the seafood meal.

We arrived around 4:30 PM for dinner midweek. There was only 1 server at the time and 2 other tables. Service was good, but a bit slow. Not sure if it was the kitchen or the server. We started with the Conch Fritters, which were good. We were surprised our dinners came with a salad. The salads were large and... More

We had 8 Scouts and Scouters who who just finished a week sailing in the Keys looking for "mom and pop" restaurant serving fresh seafood. We had some young men who are picky about what what they eat. At the end of the meal, every single person loved their meal. One of the famlies who staying an extra week made... More

This restaurant had very nice meals, fresh fish at fair cost. Try their fish tacos, they are excellent. It's not a big restaurant so hit it early if you want to get seated. The waitress was excellent and very pleasant to talk to.

Stumbled across this place while deciding where to get a spot of dinner in Islamorada. We were welcomed in and it was excellent. Blackened hogfish was perfect. The fish tacos were outstanding. The sides were expertly prepared. The deep-dish key lime pie -- the only thing that wasn't great -- but still very good. Highly recommended and looking forward to... More

Loved the gumbo! Besides the normal shrimp, chicken and sausage, there were also scallops and clams in this delicious concoction. Hearty portions. Try to save room for dessert. You'll have trouble deciding what to get. Hummingbird cake was awesome! Service was quick and waitress was attentive. I'd definitely go back.
