Nice view, good food

You have to eat on the deck outside, don't even think of eating inside here. The deck area is where the view is and is the happening part of the restaurant, at least by Marathon Key standards. When we sat down, we saw dinners being served next to us. The Hog fish specials, they looked real good... read more

After a day of fishing, we took part of our catch - queen snapper, snowy grouper, mahi - to Lazy Days to cook. It was fabulous. Prepared four different ways. The trimmings were just as good. Our waiter, Jose, did a great job considering juggling multiple tables (ie needs more help). It's a crowded place and nosy, right on the... More

Can't really rate this place as we walked out 15 minutes after being seated, having not been served even the water that we requested. When I asked the young gal who came to take our order for her name, she looked at me blankly and said, in a tone befitting a morgue lab worker, "I'm real busy.... it's (withheld here)"... More

I pulled up the web site for Lazy Days South. Reviewed their menu and made a reservation for dinner. It was our anniversary. We got there and the party in front of us didn't not have reservations and we told they could wait at the bar and it would probably be a 40 to 45 minute wait. When we gave... More

I am a local resident. Went there for happy hour. We were told to sit at table to be able to have the happy hour drinks. After sitting at the table the table next to us were all smoking and the smoke was blowing in our faces. Asked the waiter if we could move to a table away from smoke.... More

Great food, great service, great view. What more can you ask for? It's literally inches from the water. You can drive or boat there. Absolutely wonderful place. Definitely top 5 restaurant in Marathon.

Four of us had lunch here on a Monday afternoon. I was a little hesitant after the mixed reviews it has been getting, but as we were not in a hurry, we decided to try it. We ate outside, and the view was wonderful. Lots of Pelicans, boats, and the bay out to the sea. Service was a bit slow,... More

Lazy Days in Marathon has gone downhill every year since opening, and it didn't start at the top of the hill. I come to Marathon for the winter every year. I go to a lot of restaurants as I almost never cook. The food here can be good, but it is hit and miss. I have never had a baked... More

If it wasn't for cigarette smoke, I would have given this a 3 star - and if you don't like smoking while eating food, Lazy Days violates Florida law by permitting cigarette smoking. In fact, they promote it with a sign, "Smoking Area" (see picture) and by providing ashtrays. Florida law prohibits smoking in restaurant areas serving food. Even though... More
