Don't be shocked if they take your business for granted. Food is great though!

Service is starting to slip! Yikes. I have been coming here for three years, during almost every month of stone crab season. Their seafood is great and mostly above reproach - I've only had two bad crab craws in all my time there. The crab claws are $1.25 each, a great deal. With a skilled... read more

The scenery is great. It is tucked in a little harbor with lots of fishing boats and great views. The lobster Reuben was ok, but the other fish sandwiches were delicious! Yummy key line pie! The view and atmosphere are worth the trip. Fast service. Order at the counter and pick up your food. Informal and casual just how we... More

The stone crab from the raw bar was excellent and the sunset sublime. Friendly bartenders. Appears to be a popular local haunt.

I am a great fan of seafood and I can taste what is fresh and stale covered in grease. Many of us eat our seafood fried and it I'ds not the best was to enjoy seafood. First night we visited the fishery we had grouper sandwich, fried conch, and crab cake sandwich. They all tasted good but was not able... More

It is definitely an old florida type place..walk up to a window to order..they asked us for a country but didn't say why just that they needed that first...that was after we waited while they talked with a person who had a dog with them before taking our order...did not tell us that we needed to walk around the corner...

a lobster reuben sandwich, are you kidding me? Not to be missed. And feeding the Tarpon from the railing in the evening is also fun for all.

It's a hole in a wall where you order the dishes that are written clearly on the wall. Every day the system changes, one day you pick a color from a crayola pencils box, another day you pick a name of a cartoon character. When they call you, you take the tray with your food to one of the tables... More

Been eating here every year for many years during Feb. Always get lobster reuben. This year is the worst! Changed large marble rye bread to smaller plain inferior rye dried out bread. Cut back on sauercrout. The lobster (if it is anymore) tasted old and was chopped a little larger than rice. Don't order!
