They said get there before 5:15, some of meals half price,($15.50)but depending on what you order could be a lot of food. Ours was in that category. If REALLY hungry order from main menu, prices will match.We didn't have reservations, but were seated anyway, closer to 515 you might wait a little. Other reviews indicate a somewhat shabby entrance, but... More

This is our 4th year eating at this little gem in Grassy Key and what a meal! We come to Marathon for a month each year and so enjoy Robert and his staff. We did miss Gabor who retired this year. Nancy was our server and explained the menu in great detail. My husband had beef medalians and I had... More

The first thing you notice is the tattered stair covering climbing the stairs to the restaurants. Once inside it was cozy and nicely decorated. Keep in mind we were here a night and it wasn't bright inside. As you look around you can see the place is rather worn and dusty. My husband had hog fish and it was mushy.... More

Wow. We LOVE this place. Time after time our experience is remarkable. As other reviewers have noted it is hard to find (some of the best places are) mile marker 58, is where it's at- at Rainbow Bend Resort. Looks like a whole in the wall, but out near the water & up a flight of stairs- you'll find a... More

The fact the Hideaway was difficult to find should have been a clue to keep on driving. Our dining experience at the Hideaway was a big disappointment. The food was tasteless. The service was indifferent. The cost was expense. Not much else to say.

I am perplexed by the good reviews of the Hideaway Cafe. I usually can find something redeeming about a poor restaurant but in this case I am at a loss to do so. The food was poor and the service was inattentive at best. Our party had a variety of dishes. Comments include; the steak was overdone and tough, the... More

We enjoyed tHe experience but the hog fish wasn't great. A bit bland and too much butter in the preparation. Shrimp bisque was very good. The seafood soup was good, but seafood was a bit sparse. Good, but not exceptional.

It's tourist season in the Keys and I just wanted to rave about the best hidden gem on Grassy Key. I've been coming here regularly for decades and the food, service, an evening ambiance are consistently good even after all these years. I love bringing new visitors here for what they believe will be a "Keysie" experience, but the surprise... More

A hidden gem just north of Curry Hammock State Park, located inside the Rainbow Bend Resort. It took some time to find this place as the GPS kept indicating it was at the resort and we didn't know it was 'inside' the resort. As we drove around we saw the sign toward the back and found a place to park;... More

We enjoyed our dinner at the Hideaway Cafe. It is tricky to find so based on other reviews we scouted it out the day before our reservation. The restaurant is very small and tables close together. The decor is tired but we weren't there for that. The owner and host visited us several times during the evening to insure we... More
