“A unique experience not to be missed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Went for lunch our first day in Islamorada and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the helpfulness of the staff. Loved the cow+pig burger and the alcoholic root beer (yum). The homewrecker brat wasn't as impressive but all three of the burgers we had were great.

“Pretty good, pretty pricy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

so this being ranked number 1 we had to try it. It's a small quaint place, staff was very welcoming. We had two harpoon ales at $6.50 a piece...that was the median price for a beer, others were $9.50. I'm not cheap by any means but wow. We split the South Carolina pulled pork topped with slaw and it was good. Really wanted the fried chicken everyone raves about but couldn't get it until 5pm. Lastly, no cupcakes...I was bummed but probably wouldn't of bought one anyways as they were $8.50...a piece...for one cupcake?! They rave about their bread pudding but I don't care for that dessert. So, it was good, not great. Glad we tried it!

“YUMMY & unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Very yummy place! The burgers and bratwurst were delicious. It's small and cozy and we didn't feel awkward in our just-came-from-the-beach clothes. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, and it was obvious how much pride they had in their unique/original menu. I don't often drink, but their beer and wine list was diverse and reasonably priced. I regret not tasting the cupcakes, but I was stuffed. Go see for yourself!

“Great lunch spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

I had the burger with blue cheese and beer onions, and my husband had the lobster roll. Both were fantastic! The fry upgrade is well worth the money, as well!
