Stuck in a very non-descript strip mall at Mile Marker 88 in Islamorada is a great find. The locals have known about it, but due to recent publicity it is catching a lot of tourists and other out of towners. Home brew with a good selection of popular bottle beers. Even home brewed root beer and soft drinks. Great hamburgers... More

Meat is the best food in town. It's a cute location with excellent food, beer, soda and desserts. I had the Ruben and everyone else had burgers. Onions rings were the best ever! I mean ever. So many good fresh things on the menu to choose from, you can't go wrong. Try it. Note: it's not fancy inside, just a... More

Stopped for lunch after reading Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed with the type and quality of the food. However, the place is a little pricey and very small. Would still recommend!

This was a last stop on our way back to Miami, but boy, was it unforgettable! We started with a delicious lobster mac & cheese and fried pork rinds. Pork rinds were delicious- light and crisp, dusted with a chili powder-type seasoning. We ordered A+ craft beers and sodas with our terrific burgers. Chorizo burger was spicy and juicy, cheeseburgers... More

This is a mixture of unique blend of burgers, French fries and condiments that have special seasonings. I prefer to stick to the norm but my wife likes this place. I like a cushion when I dine and there aren't any here but it's a pretty cool and unique place. Prices are on the high side for the selection but... More

Just left MEAT and both my wife and I are very pleased. I had a burger and she had the "BLT" even though theirs has a lot more letters. The burger was very tasty and the BLT was the best my wife has ever had at a restaurant. The fries were excellent and the prices were a delightful reprieve from... More

My family and I stopped into MEAT on our recent trip to the Keys. Given the good reviews, we had high expectations, but were very disappointed. The hamburgers all were undercooked and our waitress seemed very annoyed with everyone that stopped in. She seemed to treat the locals at the bar well, but all the tourist looking families that came... More

Across the board- one of the best meals I have had at a "pub". Had the homemade bacon and fried green tomato sandwich- really tasty. My wife tried the lobster roll- perfectly done. Doesn't look like much from outside - basically in a strip mall. (And really doesn't look like much on the inside other than a pub) But the... More

Small dining area with a bar, we didn't have to wait long for a table. We had a burger and the duck fat fries. The food was excellent and the micro brewed beer was good.

We had heard M.E.A.T had a great hamburger so we decided to try it out. It's kind of a combo of eat in, fast food place. You place your order with the cashier, the seats are kind of weird to sit in but the burger? It's excellent! The salt and pepper seasoned fries are also excellent. Buyer beware. Their 5... More
