Amazing Food!!

Amazing food-super fresh seafood. Excellent grouper sandwich and my boyfriend had shrimp and scallop linguini that was equally as delicious. We shared a slice of the key lime pie. I can say it was yummy with a meringue topping but I think they read the previous reviews and scraped off any burned... read more

Went to eat here last week and sat down and waited about 10 minutes for a server, when she arrived we asked about prices on 4 different fish meals. She answered then left and came back 5 minutes later with 4 different prices. We got our water and then just sat there. Didnt know where she was so got up... More

After much deliberation on where to have our dinner on a Saturday night of our vacation, we ended up trying Ma's Fish Camp, based on reviews. We had a bad experience the night before so we were bracing ourselves. Well...from start to finish the food was very good. The conch fritters were big and fresh and tasty, the fish tacos... More

Food was good service was excellent I believe our waiter was named Fernando the kale once again was way too spicy and that's the reason we went for our dinner last night macaroni and cheese was delicious but portions very small

We drove down to Islamorada one evening while in Florida hiking in the Everglades. I had the smoked fish dip (good), fish tacos (good) and key lime pie. The pie was melty under the weight/temperature of a small mountain of meringue, which I did not care for. But nor did I make an issue of it. Our server was attentive.

This was a family lunch stop headed to duck key. We thought we would give it a try, I was not impressed with the menu nor the food. Yes service is slow. We wanted to try conch fritters for the first time and even though there were only six tables, it was forgotten about. The fish sandwich was nothing beyond... More

The best fish tacos. This place is not much inside but it has the best fish tacos in Islamorada. We have been there before and I have never been disappointed. They have fresh fish. A must if you love fish tacos. You will not be disappointed

The food was not bad, but entrees delivered such that two of our diners were done before the other three got their meals. Go figure... Try them on a slow night, but if you walk in and the place is half full you may want to try someplace else.

I had read some good reviews on this place and decided to give it a try. Service was slow and I had to remind the waitress to bring out my conch chowder. But overall the food was good and prices were reasonable. It is not a waterfront restaurant so you don't get the view that other places have but I... More

Everything was really good, except I didn't really care for the key lime pie. It was my least favorite of the 5 places I had it. It wasn't terrible by any means, just not my favorite. The fish was awesome though, and my salad was really great! Very nice staff.
