Description: Breakfast, lunch, dinner, beer & wine, provisions…get it here! Welcome to Grassy Key Outpost; an island market and grill. “The Outpost” is a “must stop” spot in the middle Keys. Its home at mile marker 58 has been a famed stopping point for travelers passing by and vacationers settling in, for generations. Today we are newer but just as comfortable. The concept for “The Outpost” was to create something to meet combined needs of a small island including exceptional local dining with hand-crafted fare; groceries and market fodder for home, vacation home, or on the water; a bar for cold drinks or a home-style lunch; a tropical patio for al fresco dining; along with food and fine wines to go. Our menus feature specialties like Fire and Ice Ceviche, hand-crafted oven baked pizzas, Classic ‘diner’ burgers and everything in between. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, the best authentic espresso west of Itlay,or for snacks at the bar, we’re here to welcome you and feed your soul.Whether dining or picking up provisions, at Grassy Key Outpost you can “Get It Here!”

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We had dinner and I had Hogfish fried with Bok Choy, edamame with a sweet soy sauce. My wife had a hamburger and a salad.
We both enjoyed our meals very much! We have been there several times and each time we loved our meals!

“Mediocre food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

The food was ok. Hamburgers and salads are average. The tuna sandwich was pretty good. But the service was super slow-- 2 hours for lunch!

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We love this restaurant. Their pizza is fresh and just enough of everything on it. The fried green tomato and lobster salad is one of the best things I have ever eaten.
The $5.00 corkage fee is the only complaint. The wine is pricey so adding this on to it if you want a bottle with your dinner seems a bit wrong.
Overall service and food wonderful.

“Don't miss the Grassy Key Outpost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We had lunch yesterday at the Outpost and it was outstanding! One couple ordered the wedge salad while we waited for 2 pizzas. They said the salad was delicious with plenty of blue cheese dressing. While the wait for the pizza was a little longer than a pizza joint, it was well worth it and the owner explained the preparation to us. Every pizza is made from scratch. Thin crust, just the way we like it! My husband I and shared the Roma, tomato, prosciutto, arugula and basil and we would definitely order this again. The other couple had the Roni, pepperoni, mozzarella and basil. A nice new find on Grassy Key!

“Great Grill Cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Ate here twice during our stay. First time I had the meatloaf which was good. Reminded me of my mother's. The 2nd time I had the grilled cheese that I highly recommend. The combination of cheese they use was excellent. Good coffee!
