I use to own a restaurant and watched as the hostess quadruple sat our waitress.... She handled it. Screaming kids, screaming customers, cursing, "Patricia" our waitress is apologizing, remaining professional as these people all turn on her... It was ridiculous. We left her a glowing comment card and a great tip. Patricia, we hope to see you again, but hopefully... More

I just hoped the food/drinks would live up to the amazing waterfront setting, and did they ever! Not only is the outdoor dining here incredible - there is an outdoor bar and many outdoor tables (we sat in a four person swinging table with an overhang)! We had the Hogfish and Scallops along with a lobster pizza. One of the... More

We stopped here after a long day returning from Key West. It was close to closing time, but the bartender was still very attentive and accommodating. She created a lemonade/beer concoction for my dad (after having one in Key West), which was nice, and they had Harpoon and Dogpfish head (which are my two favorite beers). I had a locally... More

Food was good, surroundings very appealing.Tables are scattered throughout the grounds, with covered Glider tables a nice extra touch. Service was very prompt. My only suggestion: During this very hot summer, a few artfully-placed outdoor fans would be a helpfull, comforting addition. The Gulf side of the Islands does not have the breezes that the Ocean side has!

We were staying at Cheeca Lodge nearby and wanted to branch out in the dinner department. Saw rave reviews of Marker 88 and thought: Why not? So, we made the trip over, picked inside over outside seating (still a bit humid out) and was served by Joe, who did a superb job of offering suggestions and explaining the preparation of... More

This was right down from where we were staying in the Keys, so we stopped in a few times for drinks and had dessert there, too. First off, get there an hour or so *before* sunset, and probably make a reservation if you want a table. It is the perfect spot to watch the sun go down and enjoy a... More

This restaurant has such a beautiful atmosphere not to mention delicious food. The appetizers and entrees were absolutely delicious and the cocktails were great as well. Our server Joe was awesome!!! He was extremely knowledgable about the menu and pointed us into the right direction and he was spot on and so very personable. I would definitely recommend this place... More

Well if you are so lucky to be in Key Largo or nearby, the restaurant ‘Mile Marker 88’ is just the place. It has a typical laid back Conch Republic attitude and ambiance. Casual dress is par for the course. It has an easy going, yet professional staff. You’re sitting just up from the beach; feet from the water. We... More

We went to Marker 88 for the sunset. We had an outstanding waiter from our home state of New Jersey and he made some great suggestions. We enjoyed the lobster guacamole. We also had the grilled lobster dinner and the lobster was sweet and succulent. The sunset was gorgeous -bring your camera. Ask for the seats that rock back and... More
