Great Change of pace in the Keys

Love this place. We stop there at least once a trip. Chorizo Patti Sandwich is our favorite and must have Truffled Bistro Fries. If you want a change from fish please try you will not be disappointed.

Stopped here just by chance while we were on the road to our hotel. Food was excellent. Best burger I've ever had. Other family members had other choices and they gave rave review too. Place was small, not much seating inside during busy lunch hour so we sat outside. Really it was only a couple tables set out front the... More

We stupidly tried to drive through Islamorada during the Founders Day festival. Bad mistake. Google maps estimated almost 2 hours to go final 8 miles. Happily, we decided to stop for a late lunch instead. MEAT was the nearest restaurant. What a lucky break! The food was excellent and the service was friendly. I had the bacon and fried green...

I had one their special burgers, asked for rare and was given just that. The burger was delicious and the meat was very high quality. Loved the eclectic collection of beers on draft. Only downside was how small the place is on the inside and the service was a little spotty, but extremely nice.

The good was truly amazing. Well thought out "concoctions" of burgers and desserts, shakes and sides! I had the lamb burger with upgraded truffle fries and a beer cheese soup. Explosive! The condiments are homemade and it was an experience on it's own to try the mustard and ketchup. Staff was knowledgable about their craft beer selection and very helpful... More

We ate at MEAT on our way back to Miami after a vacation in the keys. Saw it on Urbanspoon and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The service was fantastic. We were immediately greeted at the door. You order at the counter and they bring it to you table. MEAT is a small place but... More

Looking for a bite to eat while visiting the Keys and stumbled upon MEAT. Great selection of beer and the food was outstanding! There were choices for the meat lovers as well as our vegetarian. Service was great. Be warned, the ketchup and mustard are a homemade recipe. Not your Heinz from the grocery store.

We went in search of a late lunch and we found this place on Yelp! They make most of their foods. Use good oils such as duck and truffle oils for fries. Homemade condiments. Service was fantastic! Employees clearly take pride in their establishment. Great find! Wish there were more places out there like them!
