Was looking for a place to have lunch and this looked like a neighborhood dive (in a good way). Le Tub is located on the site of a former Sunoco gas station, on the intra-coastal waterway. It is decorated with toilet seats (?) and various artifacts that have been rescued from the water. It is a multi level wooden spot with a bar and TV, very casual and laid back. Plastic silverware, paper plates and napkins. It seemed the thing to order was the burger, so I did, with a beer. It was $11. I was thinking about ordering the (healthier) peel and eat steamed shrimp, but it was $20 and I just couldn't do it. The burger came out perfectly cooked and reminded me of the ones my Dad used to make- hand formed and bulging on the top. It was pink in the middle and came with lettuce, sliced tomato and onion. I asked for pickles, which the waiter said he would "track down". He did and they were good. It was hot, juicy, tasty and filling and, unbeknownst to me had been voted "best burger" by GQ magazine. My only complaint was the bun was your soft, run of the mill bun and would have benefitted from being toasted or grilled, to prevent the juices running into it and making it soggy. Service was good. Other offerings were fish dip, chili, fish sandwich, other seafood, soup of the day and salads. The menu is limited. Supposedly their Bloody Marys are famous, but I did not try them. I told my son this place was a cross between Scotty's and The Keg, two Miami landmarks. One has great burgers and fish dip, the other is on the water. He said "That sounds like the perfect restaurant." They now take credit cards (welcome to the 21 century!) and judging from the menu "No children after 8, No kid's menu, No high chairs", children are not encouraged here. It is a saloon, after all. It seemed to be filled with locals enjoying their lunch.
