Fantastic Sunset Dinner

Dinner on the water front. Toes in the sand. Food and drinks are good. Tables are spead out so you aren't sitting on top of the next people. Pleasant music.

We have been here many times over the years and HIGHLY recommend it. The food is Fantastic and fresh! You may pay a bit more cause you are eating on the beach, but it is well worth it !!!

We had a really nice dinner, at sunset. Service was good, the food was excellent, relatively expensive (especially the drinks) but worth it!

Morada Bay is a very special place. It's almost like a well-kept secret. The first time my girlfriend and I went down to the keys we stopped at Morada Bay for a drink and some snacks.

Terrible customer service. Unfortunate because the setting is beautiful. Was originally told the wait would be 45 min...90 minutes later still no table. Spoke with Manager who offered no apologies simply said "it is what is"...really? That's how you respond when your hostess underestimated the wait time significantly??? This is on top of being charged $40 just to step foot... More

Dreamy atmosphere, gorgeous, serene--can't go wrong. Kids running around, laughing, pregnant bellies, young couples in love, grandparents--everyone makes it out for sunset at Morada Bay. Food is so-so, (some fun unique selections), waitstaff is slow, inexperienced and forgetful, but it's still worth a visit for the view and sunset ambiance.

Look, there is no shortage of great places in the Florida Keys to eat and have a drink. However very few places offer the sort of effortless low key natural charm and atmosphere as this place does. Pair that with exceptional food and charming low key service and this is a winning combination. Have the fish dip! This place ain't... More

I have had the privilege of visiting the Keys for over 20 years (and the good fortune of staying at Cheeca Lodge which is exceptional) always on a fishing jaunt with clients, friends and at times my lovely family. The last 3 times (June 2014, Dec 2014 and today, May 2015) I visited, my friends and I all boldly went... More

Had a very nice lunch here, my wife loved the mahi tacos and I enjoyed the chicken sandwich. Brilliant white sand, beautiful views and good food make this a great location for lunch.
