“Eat outside on the dock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Food good, fish fresh but portions have gotten smaller over the years and prices have risen. It is basically a takeout place where you eat on picnic tables right on the water which is beautiful, but you are paying prices more like you are eating at a sit down restaurant with real utensils and plates, not plastic. I really enjoy eating in this type of place, but would be better at a lower price and getting a bigger portion. Had grilled tuna sandwich which had a very small piece of tuna, husband had hogfish which was larger and delicious by report. Shrimp quesadilla uses baby shrimp, not key west pinks, a disappointment but still tasty.

“NotAs Good as It Once Was”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile


The lobster reuben is still pretty good. Fried seafood was overdone. The old seafood smell was significant. The odor inside the fresh seafood area would ruin your appetite.

“Great seafood & fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

When you place your order at the window, instead of your name you give the name of a cartoon character of your choice. They call you by your cartoon name. Delicious fish, some of the best fries I ever had. Outdoor, casual. No fish to feed.

“best seafood in the Florida Keys!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We were down in the keys on Sunday and decided to give a try to the Keys Fisheries. It was simply awesome. We tried the lobster tails, chicken wings, Mahi-Mahi, conch fritters (best ever!), conch salad and stone crab soup, and of course KeyLime pie. We loved everything and we are looking forward to go back. The best thing about this place is the setting. You are eating basically by the water, on picnic benches, or you can go upstairs to the bar. You place your order on a window and later they call you on the PA letting you know the food is ready. If you are down near Marathon, make sure to stop at this place. Also they have a fish market, with really good fish. It is not cheap, but is average price.

“Great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This small but very busy, restaurant that more than excedes expectations. The choice of dishes is great as is the quality of the food on offer. A great little place in a wonderful setting.
