The Visitor Centre recommended this place and we now know why. Five small beers to try at the beginning of our holiday so he knew what he might like to drink for ten days....genuine people who all tried to help us find places to go and activities we'd appreciate. Deep sea fishing trip, other bars/eateries - nothing was too much... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and we did not like it the food was overpriced and nothing special, waterfront view was nothing special, it was basically a dive in Marathon Florida. There are much better restaurants in the area..

We stayed nearby and checked out the local places to eat and have a beer. This place was recommended by the locals so we decided to give it a try. The craft beer selection was weaker than portrayed by locals but we were hungry and tired of jumping from place to place looking for a good craft beer with some... More

We ate here one night on our trip. I had the captain's platter and it was delicious. Fried sea scallops, fish, shrimp, clam strips, oysters, and a stuffed crab. I could only eat half. My husband had the new York strip and said that his was not very flavorful. They have indoor or outdoor seating. They had live music in... More

Excellent atmosphere. Excellent food. Excellent location on the water. I will say you won't think that as you drive thru the neighborhood to get there BUT it'll all be worth it. The owner catches his fish daily so there will probably be more than one "daily special" on the menu. I had the hogfish with his special garlic/wine sauce. YUM!!!... More

We stopped here out last night in the keys and let me tell you, I'm glad we did! The sautéed alligator tail is a must try! Best flavor I have ever tasted. The steak was cooked perfectly and also had great flavor. If you are staying in marathon or just passing through make sure to stop in this amazing place!

The only exceptional portion of tonight's meal was our waiter Joey. He was so polite as he brought out each dish. The spicy lobster bisque was not spicy at all. The crab cakes had the consistency of taking cooked crab and making a ball out of it and never cooking it again. We also ordered the coconut shrimp which was... More
