“Very Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We went here because they advertised a Lobster Reuben and that sounded interesting. Not only was the sandwich great but this was a very cool casual, outdoor dining place. You order your food at a walk up window and give them a song name. When your foods ready they call you by your song name. Lots of outdoor waterfront tables to choose from. Plenty of fish right there in the water to look at while you eat. They also have an elevated pub (2nd floor) where you can have a beer and look out over the marina. Fun, funky and enjoyable.

“Not at these prices....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

Almost $100 for 1 appetizer and 3 main courses. All served on ugly and soft plastic plates, with plastic utensils. Lobster tail, ordered for my wife, was gummy and tasted like it was frozen before. My "diablo" lobster meat with linguini was awful, covered with spicy tomato sauce and haf-cooked vegetables. It tasted terrible. All four meals ordered by us were not good, not tasty and subquality. Ther is nothing scenic about this location as well, that could justify the prices. There is no waiting service, no air conditioned rooms; you just order, pick-up yourself and you eat outside. Such a scenario would be great, especially for a location like Florida Keys, but this particular one is neither nice and scenic, nor clean and inviting. At least not for the prices that this location is aspiring for. This was our first and last visit at Marathon Seafood Mkt & Grill.

“casual fresh caught”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

had dinner there several times while vacationing in marathon, best sea food I have had in FL, they have a fleet that catches the fish daily, reasonable prices and your kids can feed the tarpon that are every where around the dock

“Packed!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Place was packed but it was well worth the wait. Fantastic view and good food. Just don't be in a hurry. Expect to have a drink or three and see the overworked staff running around like crazy.
