Beyond AMAZING!! The very Best restaurant in the FL Keys!

We have been to The Keys a couple of times. We have gone to so many places, disappointment after disappointment, until we found Ma's!!! This place is awesome, the food is always fresh and delicious. We haven't tried anything that wasn't outstanding. Everything is clean. The employees are very nice... read more

Visited this place last night looking to get away from Memorial weekend crowds. Huge mistake! Arrived 15 minutes before closing and were seated in a 90% full restaurant. Ordered drinks, Shrimp & Grits for me with Shrimp Scampi pasta for the wife... Salads arrive immediately and were ok. But the rest of the food took over for ever... Server kept... More

Not the most fancy decor, but super friendly service and the most incredible Key Lime Pie. We went just for dessert and were not disappointed! The pie was exactly right - tart with a homemade thin crust. Not the quasi cheesecake muck that's usually served up as KLP. If you love real KLP, don't miss this place!

I had the Mahi-Mahi sandwich wife had the fish tacos Both were very good. I also like my craft beer brewed right in Islamorada. The topper was the Key Lime Pie. Unbelievably good.

I'm not a fish eater normally, but I decided to try the red snapper. It was excellent with a light lemon-butter sauce on top, nicely done. I also tried a few lightly fried shrimp and they also were very good. The server was excellent with lots of info about the surrounding area. It's a very comfortable restaurant.

This is a small, nice place to grab a bite to eat. Food was good, service was good and prices were good. Nice place to grab a bite while you are in the area.

We saw the ratings for this place and drove by it and decided to add it to our list. Made reservations, got in easily, wasn't too crowded at 6:30pm on a Saturday. Hostess was super friendly. Didn't wait too long to get to our table. Menu has a lot of variety. We had the coconut shrimp and fish tacos. Both... More
