Ordered the Snapper Tacos and the Hogfish Scampi and while the tacos were incredible, the hogfish really fell short of Marker 88 Restaurant. Marker 88 really blows this place out of the water all around. The bathrooms here were very shoddy, borderline gross, certainly not what you would expect for $100 meal for two. The food was good, yes, and... More

Came back here on our first night back to the Keys (instead of last like last year). Again, blown away by the friendliness, quality of food, atmosphere, and everything! Love love LOVE this place!

Stopped by chance while heading back north from marathon. Fresh hogfish, shrimp tacos, best black beans and rice I have had, the beans were amazing. Key lime pie is a must have.

I go to Ma's Fish Camp to get my conch fix. Cracked conch, conch fritters, conch chowder. The fish dip is very good. I normally stick with the appetizers and throw in an order of fries. The cracked conch and fritters are truly delicious.

My wife and I had dinner here on our way north from Key West. Honestly, we initially selected it because of the combination it was on our hotel's restaurant list and reviews sounded good on TripAdvisor. Certainly glad we did because it was a delightful meal. To start, the hostess (owner?) greeted us at the door, seated us and and... More

The meal was a nice piece of grouper Baja style with two sides. Although it was excellent it was also too expensive. The grouper was $26 and the Baja was an additional $4. That's $30 if you were counting. It came with delicious mixed veggies (a little oily) and sweet potato fries, nothing special. The atmosphere was a little boring... More

Food is good, but the strawberry key lime pie is to kill for. It is big enough to share and is very refreshing.

The outside is rustic but inside it is a jem. I am a food snob and also a published food author. I ordered a scallop dish with scallops at least 2-3 inches tall and as tender and fresh as can be. My husband ordered a special shrimp dish. The coleslaw was completely homemade and by a simple taste it is... More

The food was good but not overly impressive. Prices were reasonable bit portions were on the small side. Shrimp and grits were good as was the catch of the day
