“Diamond in the rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

My husband and I like to find restaurants that have character and that "want to stay here all day feel". Well that's Marker 8.5. The Chef/Owner Mike comes out to check on your experience. We gave him two thumbs up on the food and what a view. Ambiance was feeling like you've stepped back in time to a Hemingway novel. We'll defiantly put this place on our "frequently go to list".

“Awesome quaint little spot....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Our waitress was so nice! The atmosphere here is really cool.
A couple of us had salads with grilled grouper......very good. The men had grouper po boy sandwiches and said they were good too. Would have liked to go again!

“Great atmosphere, great food, friendly and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Loved the set up - drink and/or eat either inside the screened porch area or outside on their pier and on land. When in Fla you just have to eat with the warm breeze gently surrounding you and this place is perfect for that. We had breakfast there twice. You have to try the Bowl of Caribbean Conch Chowder with one or two poached eggs dropped in it - AMAZING! with their own hot sauce. We also shared 2 pancakes - yummy. Dinner was really great too. The Conch Fritters did not disappoint and I've had some blooper but these were perfect. The Grouper and Mahi Mahi were wonderful - fresh and flaky and lightly flavored so you could actually taste the fish. We topped it off splitting Key Lime pie - wonderful way to cap off the evening.

“Very good-but better last time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Excellent Buffalo Shrimp & Key Largo Grouper again. Great service from Tony again too!

The Fried Grouper Fingers were somewhat bland & our steak fries seemed undercooked & tough.

I'll still return but will probably stick with the shrimp & Key Largo Grouper next time.
