We wanted to love this place, but despite a fantastic waiter, we found it just so so. We shared conch fritters and fish tacos. The fritters were OK, and quite huge, but the tacos were very bland.

We were staying at the Pines & Palms Resort and wanted a place to eat that was near our accommodation. I looked on Trip Adviser and they recommended Ma's Fish restaurant. We arrived at 7pm and were warmly welcomed. The menu had a good selection and was reasonably priced with large portions. The puddings were yummy but unfortunately we had... More

The best meal I've had in Islamorada- better than waterfront restaurants in the area. Fresh fish and healthy-sized portions. Check it out.

We were there two days ago. The atmosphere is very friendly.our waitress explained everything very well, and answered all our stupid questions about the food. They were out of hogfish. We tried mahi mahi and halibut which were very tasty. Everybody should try conch fritters. It is the must in the keys.

How appropriate that this restaurants signature dish is the key lime pie...and two different types to boot. Don't ask me which one to pick--they are both fantastic. As mentioned, this is truly a roadside stop that doesn't command much in the way of exterior attraction. But, don't let that dissuade you from making this your Islamorada choice for lunch or... More

kids & grandparents alike enjoyed the fresh fish, shrimp, & salads & dessert. The hushpupppies were the best I've had, and the key lime pie was sublime. I also have to mention the kids' fried fish dinner, which was truly special--who uses mahi mahi for their kids' fish dinner? Very nice service too.

After a long day at the beach with the family, we went to some places around Ma's, and the wait was over one hour. They didn't even mentioned this place, and I pulled in to this place. Waiter Michelle was awesome! Thus, gave her a 20% tip as usual. The fish was over priced, but the food and freshly made... More
