Sausage gravy

A nice small local eatery with really large portions of food for a very good price. i had the silver spoon special, two eggs,two bacons,two sausage and two pancakes. was filling and tasty. My pretty lady had sausage gravy on biscuits(1/2) . She says it is the best in Marathon.

The Wooden Spoon is a favorite place for locals to grab breakfast or lunch, so you know they serve great food in large quantity at a reasonable price. You will often see charter captains filling up with a hearty breakfast, then taking a sandwich with them for their day on the water. This is a typical Keys place. You will... More

Had breakfast here and it was really busy so I think the food speaks for itself, also the service was very good. But even though there is no excuse for it not being clean. Made us worry how clean the kitchen would be if the actual restaurant was dirty. A real shame.

We stopped in for Lunch: was average. nothing special to write about, no... More

We stopped for breakfast on Sunday morning because we heard it was so great? We were very disjointed with the cleanliness of the restaurant. The food was below average, the server was very good and they were very busy. If you like local color and just a couple of eggs for breakfast in a very dirty establishment, go for it!... More
