“Best restaurant in the Florida Keys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Once again, King Seafood came through with the absolute best meals of our trip. The conch fritters were outstanding, as was the seafood soup and fresh Hog Snapper. The portions were plentiful and the gracious service could not have been better. The owners have expanded the dining area since last year, which made for very comfortable dining. Very clean throughout. Thanks, King Seafood for making our trip just that much more enjoyable.

“Hog fish (Hog snapper) Sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We stayed on Marathon Key the last week of July. King's Seafood is a small restaurant and a fresh fish market. We had the Hog fish Sandwich, I've always called them Hog Snapper. It came on a large bun and the fish fillet hung over the bun, served with a side item. We had one fried, one blackened. Excellent choice at $8.50 When you walk in you are handed a menu, you order from the cashier and pay. When your food is ready, they call your order and you pick it up at a service window. No frills or service, just good food and friendly people. Some menu items have a Cuban influence, I liked the Flan. Next time I'll try the Deli Style Cuban sandwich.

“Very fresh fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Rustic restraunt but very good food for the price. You order and pay at cashier, then when your order is ready you pick it up for your table. We had 3 different fish sandwichs and they were all great. Side of fries shared by 3! If you like Cuban food this is your place. Parking was tricky so park in the back.
