After reading the reviews I expected a really great meal with excellent service. I have cooked professionally but I am not a food snob...I know good food when I taste it though. The food was slightly above average but the service lacked greatly. There was no tables open when we got there so we sat at this little so called... More

Again, slightly pricey but for the area and the keys, it is not overly pricey. My party had the swordfish (blackened and they said it was good, not great but good) and the shrimp platter (one fried, one grilled and one blackened) and all said it was really good. Platter is 8 shrimp, the basket is 6 shrimp if you... More

Our last evening on the Keys couldn't have been more successful. The service was excellent and the food even better. Good food, big portions. Our son was the only one to have a dessert, a Key Lime Pie. ....he was allowed to lick the plate :) THANKS!!

Food was great and well priced. The cakes and pies are out of this world. The hummingbird cake is so good that we stopped on the way back to the main land and picked up a piece to bring home. Only thing about this place is that it gets busy, staff is good but sometimes slow so just be prepared... More

Not many words can explain the food at this place. Outstanding. You won't expect it, looks very, very casual. Not on the water but food was amazing. Must stop for dinner. We were told about this place from a local, and it was right on.

Our first night on the Keys and what a treat! Best coconut shrimp ever, the curry sauce on the side is unbelievable. We each ordered grouper, one in a lemon caper butter, one with fresh tomato, avocado and cilantro. Both were delicious. The cheese grits were also fantastic. Couldn't leave without a slice of key lime, one of the best... More

The place was packed. It is an ordinary coffee shop breakfast place. Produces all the basic breakfast menu and the food came out fast and hot. Wait service was great. Kind of noisy and really crowded. Toast must burn in there because I smelled burnt toast. Cute little touristy souvenir shop attached.

What a pleasant surprise! Last time I was in that building, it was for mediocre Mexican, my how times change. The restaurant's name conjured notions of all-you-can-eat fried catfish elbow to elbow with, well, you know the type. Anyway, we all had delectable seafood dinners. A bit spendy but worth the price. The Key Lime pie was top notch.

My family and I stopped into Ma's for dessert during our visit to the Keys. Overall, the desserts were fantastic, but the Key Lime Pie was simply the best. Wonderfully smooth and mild lime taste. Definitely worth a stop for the sweets!

Great little spot in Islamorada. Hubby had 3 huge fish tacos for like $12.95 and I had the mahi fresh catch for $14.95 and made two meals of it. Came with rice and grilled veggies. Very good and very attentive server. We would definitely go back! They are known for their homemade desserts but we were too full.
