I was referred by a good friend of mine. She told me they had great fresh sea food. As I walked in they have an open kitchen in which allows you to see your meal being done. I ordered at the register with what seemed to be the owner, a very welcoming lady. In the kitchen I spoke with her... More

I ordered the lobster soup (see photo) The only thing "lobster" about it was the hunk of shell they threw in it. There were no chunks of lobster, no FLAVOR of lobster, in fact it was a very bland tasting soup. I gave it to my husband who added hot sauce just to taste something. Overall a very disgusting looking... More

I had always heard great things about this place, and sent people there. Boy was I WRONG! I figured I would go and splurge on a Lobster Dinner to the tune of 26$! I had gotten some great news and thought, what the heck as I was shopping at Bealls across the street. OH HOW WRONG I WAS! The owner... More

Probably the best conch fritters in the Keys along with fresh fish sandwiches and crevice which was served with fruit. The fresh crab dip was also outstanding. Just a plain self serve restaurant, clean with knowledgeable food preparers and staff. The best!!!!!!

We mostly went for the fresh seafood. We had the mahi, snapper, shrimp and all of the cevice we could shovel into our faces while staying in Marathon. We only sat down to eat once but the sandwiches were great. The 5 year old begged to get Cuban Sandwiches everywhere we went for the whole week. It's no-frills, and wonderful.... More

Had the Minuto (yellowtail snapper boneless filet) with yellow rice and fried plantains, my fiancé had a half dozen oysters on the shell, and grilled shrimp. Both were excellent, and our conch ceviche appetizer was so refreshing! Order at the counter and they bring the food over to you. No fancy frills!

My wife and I decided to have lunch here based upon the menu, and reviews on TripAdvisor. King Seafood is a small, simple, authentic seafood "shack" in Marathon. I use the word "shack" because it reminded me of all the small seafood restaurants that dot the New England coast. This is not a fancy place, but the food was incredible.... More

While teaching a course in Marathon, this restaurant was recommended to us. I ate there twice and had different meals each day. The ceviche and fish burritos were phenomenal. Great fish soups. I was only there twice - but I I had stayed all week to teach, I would eat there every day to try everything on the menu. Strongly... More

Looking for some fresh fish for dinner and was impressed at how clean and tidy this fish market and eatery was-- just perfect! The men behind the counter were polite and ready to answer any questions--had fresh hogfish, mahi, beautiful grouper, two different sizes of shrimp, tuna and whole fish also. Happy to wrap or cook-- chose large shrimp and... More
