This place use to have great live music but now it's absolutely horrible. I've been to high school choir concerts that were better than this. The food quality has gone downhill as well. They have good days and bad. The only good thing about them...More

I try to get to Boondocks whenever I’m in the Keys. Nice setting and great rare tuna. Generally pretty busy.

We ordered the grouper sandwich sans bun. Sue, our server was accommodating. The lime and pepper crust was light and went well with the fish. Seating is under roof, open sides, a setting which should be enticing. Unfortunately the close proximity to US 1 with...More

Food was good just a little salty, live entertainment and friendly staff. I think pets are allowed saw a few with their owners.

I had the house salad with chicken, chicken seemed warmed over. Would not get that again. Very over priced.

Went here on our first night in town. Dinner was okay (I had fish tacos with Grouper, and husband had a steak because they were out of his first choice for dinner). Fish tacos sounded better on the menu, as they were kinda bland. Husband...More

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS FOR THE LARGEST TIKI BAR IN THE FLORIDA KEYS Boondocks opened their doors over 25 years ago as a small ice cream shop. The current kitchen was the entire building. Quickly realizing Ramrod Key was in need of more than just ice cream the original owners expanded the menu to include sandwiches, and later added beer and wine to the mix. It wasn't until 2001 that the real transformation began to take place. Lanny was first to arrive in the Florida Keys and scope out Boondocks. Seeing past the overgrown trees and broken tables he immediately called this father, Larry and long time friend and colleague, John to hop the next flight down and check out their new home. With Lanny's vision, John's restaurant expertise and Larry's backbreaking work ethic, Boondocks Grille and Draft House and Miniature Golf has become one of the most popular destinations on the overseas highway.
