“Great seafood, about as fresh as you can get it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Beautiful bayside view (Gulf of Mexico for those not from the Keys), fresh seafood, delicious and tender fish, lots of dishes on the menu. Only downside is all drinks are served in plastic cups.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

I'd heard good things about this place, but honestly, I wasn't very impressed. The stone crabs were ok, but the "shrimp cocktail" was basically 5 boiled shrimp on a paper plate. The friendly bartender and nice view are what bumped this review up to 3 stars.

“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.
