“Atmosphere was Relaxing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Stumbled on this gem when looking for another restaurant. It provided us with the perfect Key West atmosphere and put us right into vacation mode. We ordered and within 5 minutes our food was served. Happy to suggest this place to anyone. Oh, the fries that everyone has talked about..... They are truly that good! Enjoy!@!@

“The Keysi Way To Spend Your Day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

For dinner we returned to another of Marathon’s eating establishments, Chiki Tiki Bar & Grille, which is located on the second floor of Burdines’ Marina at 1200 Oceanview Avenue at the end of 15th Street in Marathon. The old-time Tiki Bar atmosphere pervades the place and the simple menu is enhanced by the fantastic views from the deck of the surrounding keys, boats and the stunning sunset view. Locals mix with fishermen and tourists as the day comes to a close. The burgers and shrimp are great, but everyone brags about the huge helpings of fries that are delivered fresh to your table. The Chiki Tiki is also known for their signature desert, a deep fried key lime pie slice, join the “Keysi way to enjoy your day” as they say at the Chiki Tiki. A prevailing breeze makes this a great spot to enjoy a burger and a cold beer.

“Chikitiki sandwich ....wow!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

This is a cool hideaway little place, suggested to me by the girl who cut my hair. It seems to have other names too??
All outdoor seating right on the ocean side of the key. You'd never find it if you were not set to go there (use the GPS!).

Took a break from fish and tried the chikitiki chicken sandwich and so glad we did.
jerk chicken breast (perfect - not too hot but with some zip) on top of a regular white bun.
Here's where it gets good...honey grilled onions on top (lots of them) with juicy tomato and spring lettuce. The combo of onions and jerk chicken spice is PERFECT. We loved it.

Also, don't miss out on the fries. Hand-cut and relatively skinny. One order is enough to split.

Great food. Atmosphere is pretty standard roadside tiki-hut bar. Waitresses were efficient but not warm, which is ok. Might take you some time to get waited on, as it's seat yourself anywhere, so sit back and enjoy the view. They'll get to you. Remember you're in the keys. People aren't in a hurry here!
