“Good Burger, Nice View, Laid Back Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

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.

“Rustic atmosphere with a super size burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The atmosphere was rustic and the burger was huge. The two of us split a burger and fries and were full. The burgers have been recognized by Oprah in the past and they were very delicious. Don't wear your Sunday best there though and apply bug spray prior to your arrival. Fyi, seat yourselves.

“Phenomenal Burgers, amazingly fresh & huge Greek salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

He had the massive, well-cooked, scrumptious burger, I has the mahi-mahi sandwich and, we shared the salad & fries. It takes a little time to get your main course but the salad came quickly and what a salad! Chock full of feta and kalamata olives. This fresh, fresh, fresh salad was fantastic! When the his burger came I just had to take a bite (clearly sirlion & the cook knew what he was doing). My sandwich was sooooo good. Too much fish for one meal...had to take some home. The fries were delicious too, Key lime pie made on premises by Kue, an extraordinary server. We sat on the water side& watched the tarpon play....everything was absolutely perfect.

“Voted best Burger in the US for a reason!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Le Tub...is fab!!!
It's very low key...organic in its surroundings...tiki bar vibe...casual!
Friendly servers...beautiful views of the intercostal marina...chilled music...very kitchy tubs everywhere, and street signs pointing to different cities' directions!
So...I saw on tv that Le Tub was voted no: 1 Burger in the US...its TRUE!
The menu is handwritten...by a man for sure...very cool...short and focused!
We ordered the famous burger...HUGE..12 oz...moist...delish...order fries on the side!
I had the Salisbury burger - no bun....just as delish...moist..LOVED it!!!
Had the frozen "mudslide" drink...have one, you'll love it...and we also had the "chi-chi" drink...can't go wrong!!!
The food is served on plastic plates...drinks in plastic cups...so definitely no dirty crockery....
If you don't take your left over food home...it "sleeps with the fishes" ...literally...it gets thrown into the water...and the fish devour it!
This place is great...if you want a chilled, relaxed bite out...great views...and a fantastic burger...
Go to Le Tub!!!!!
P.S....." no children after 8 pm....no high chairs...no children's menu"
P.S.S....kitchen closes at 5 pm!
