Great Lunch and Seafood Market

This is one of my best go to lunch places.. yes the fish is awesome. probably one of the best fish sandwiches in the keys. BUT... the non fish food is AMAZING too. They do german type fare that is to die for. And they have a great fish and meat market.

We went one day for lunch after not having been for awhile. We had great service. Each waitress came by more than once-not one of the wait staff ignored us, or refused to get us what we requested. The food choices are so much better than most other restaurants-not the fun of the mill fried, tasteless, junk. There is a... More

Always good, different specials every day. Don't forget their fish, shrimp, and steaks at the takeout market!

Fresh seafood simply prepared is a staple. I've eaten here half a dozen times & gotten fish & crab to go too. Paired with ice cold Spaten almost anything is good, but here, the fish remains the star. Reasonable prices too.

Our family of five ate dinner here. The food was excellent. We had boiled shrimp, chicken fingers, mahi fish sandwich, and buffalo shrimp. All were good, but the buffalo shrimp was divine! The buffalo sauce is made in house and worth ordering. My son even dipped his chicken fingers in the leftover sauce. The cole slaw and new potatoes were... More

We came for a late lunch. Bisque was outstanding, red conch soup was super, and the fish tacos so fresh they were practically flipping. And the Key lime pie was so perfect I almost took a whole pie home. And reasonable prices for this area. Don't miss it!

Stopped in for a quick lunch after a trip to Key West. Very basic but very good and friendly service! Good variety too! Fish market looked good but we weren't up for buying fresh seafood that day.

We stop here for our fresh fish, Florida pink shrimp and stone claws (in season) when we are in the keys. The service is friendly and knowledgeable and prices are reasonable.

We ate here twice in our week at Marathon (the base for our visit to the Keys). The menu was great - lots of choices - and the seafood was delicious! The wait staff was friendly.
