We went for happy hour and enjoyed the stone crab claws, oysters, sashimi, conch and view from the bar. I would highly recommend this wonderful place.

I was really looking forward to a lobster reuben at the Keys Fisheries on Thursday 11-13-14 when they opened at 11am. Earlier around 10am I stopped to look at the menu next to the window where you order. An employee informed me they were not opened yet and would be at 11am. I told him I knew that and was... More

Stone crabs and beer - what more can I say? After a long day's travel to Marathon, we enjoyed a simple yet delicious dinner of stone crabs and beer upstairs at the bar of Keys Fisheries. The place is a classic dive - which I mean in the best and most complimentary way. Fresh stone crabs right off the boat,... More

This place used to be the place to eat and I'll admit, we were a little sceptical when we pulled up because it wasn't really busy, and for good reason. It's horrible now. The food we were served was frozen crap that was barely edible. Matter of fact one person in our party threw their whole dinner away. I managed... More

This is set up like a traditional fishery, not a sit down dinner place so don't expect it. First thing I noticed was a new menu, not the same as the one on the website, all the prices went up a couple dollars, and drinks went up from 1.50 to 2.50. I know not much but typical of everything going... More

Having read previous reviews, we called in here and we're not disappointed. If you want to sit upstairs you can order crab claws or oysters and downstairs is the cooked menu which is ordered at the hatch and if you are sitting upstairs they ring the bell. I ordered the coconut shrimp which comes in a basket with fries, coleslaw... More

Our family ate here on our recent vacation and the food was just ok. My fried conch was probably the least favorite conch I've had. My wife's grouper was ok. Our biggest problem, and it's really no fault of the restaurant, was the bell they kept ringing. It scared our daughter (she's 1) and she kept crying. It ruined the... More

We stopped in for my husband to try the lobster ruben. It is located off the main road, but is right on the water. You order and pay at a window and take your seat outside at one of the picnic tables. We were very entertained by the birds while waiting on our food. My husband loved his lobster ruben.... More

Great atmosphere. You can sit on the dock and enjoy your meal. We went during stone crab season and my only negative comment is...you can get claws $2 each upstairs BUT no one under 21 is allowed upstairs....soooooo the claws downstairs are twice as much. We paid 39.95 for 7-9 medium sized claws. Upstairs that same order would have been... More

We ordered the lobster bisque and sauteed lobster tails. The bisque had NO lobster, although it had some lobster taste; it seemed like a tomato soup with a hint of lobster. The tails were small and undercooked so that it was very hard to get the meat off the shell. They were also swimming in oil and parsley. It's served... More
