You know when the parking lot is full it's good. The food was delicious and quick. I loved all the wooden spoons hanging on the walls.

Got there early on a weekday. I had the 2 egg breakfast with scrapple. Scrapple, as described by our waitress all the leftover scraps of a butchered pig. It was actually very good. One of my guests had the cheeseburger omelet. Filled with hamburger, tomatoes, onion, and cheese. A tasty omelet! My other guest had the pancakes with corned beef... More

Whether driving through or staying in Marathon, the Wooden Spoon is the best place to eat breakfast in the Middle Keys. Extremely busy for breakfast and lunch, they do a great job getting your food out. Our server was very entertaining and boy was she fast serving the customers. The look is typical Keys rustic, eclectic and kitschy outside and... More

On our visit the power went out in the building but that didnt stop us from enjoying a wonderful delicious breakfast. The staff was very entertaining and friendly. They kept the restaurant patrons entertained while they somehow whipped up delicious breakfasts for everyone. Very reasonably priced but again its keys style...very small...and thats so they have time for each guest.

Went to the Wooden Spoon to try a new breakfast spot on vacation and was very let down. My wife and I sat a dirty table as it was one of three un-cleaned, empty tables as we walked in. Server never took a drink order but walked up and asked if we were ready to order, not a big deal... More

My family and I heard about the Wooden Spoon from the concierge at our hotel. Given the outside décor is quite rusty, we probably wouldn't have stopped if it wasn't for the recommendation. Fantastic food, quick service, made to order, friendly people. We were all stuffed and quite satisfied with this little gem. Highly recommended.

We came back to marathon after a trip last year. This dinner was a must then and is a double must now. Came back with our teens this trip and had two meals there so far. Lunch and Breakfast, both were excellent. If you leave hungry its your own fault because the food and the staff are both wonderful. Two... More

We visited this cute place on our way to the Turtle Hospital and I'm sure glad that we did. We told our waitress that we were in a bit of a rush and only had 20 mins to order and eat so that we could make our reservation at the Turtle Hospital. Our waitress couldn't have been any sweeter or... More

The title says it all. I go for their un-believable Banana bread. Thick moist huge and scrumptious with walnuts. Have it grilled with Butter on top. It'll knock your sox off unless Ur wearing flip-flops like most of the locals.

I was needing to get away from our resort in Duck Key and via Urban Spoon I found this place which was highly rated. This place is not fancy, it's a dive but it's good stuff. The people are super friendly and its seemingly always busy which means the locals know where to go get their greasy spoon on, and... More
