Love their view and the best they have is the fried fish. Also the fish fingers are amazing. Didn't like the fish ceviche. Lemonades are fresh but the view is the best you can have.

Fresh fish but expensive for being a "dive" type place, I suppose you are paying for the lovely view of the water and boats. 5 PM brings a 3 course dinner for only $ 25. We had fried fish nuggets appetizers which is fresh and delicious for $ 17 nothing comes with it but order tostones for around $ 4... More

Since we live close by, this place has become a must for us, so we're regulars. I know that people come all the way from Ft Lauderdale to dine here. That says a lot about the place. Food is excellent and on weekends music is being played. You should reserve on weekends since it's usually packed and people even wait... More

Great little hidden away place in the park. So - after the $8 park admission fee you then have access to The Boater's Grill. We visited on a Saturday morning for breakfast. The staff and menu have a Cuban feel. SOmewhat limited but hey - the local Fire Dept was chowing down (8 hungry Fire Fighters) and they were local... More

Decent place but very rustic. Staff was somewhat pleasant but not like other places on the key. Didnt eat the food but looked decent from what I saw. Not really worth the expense or time.

This restaurant is located in a small bay in the Key BIscayne Park, it has a large area to dock boats. The bay is beautiful! The food is very good, not much waiting time and the service was great. The food was not excellent but it was very good. There's no A/C so it might get hot!

We tried this restuarant because it had a nice review for water view dining. We sat on the patio overlooking the still water, 1 boat docked at the side and surrounded by mangroves. Rather peaceful but not quite impressed based on the previous review. It was almost like sitting at a lakeside restaurant. The food was ok, my $20 grilled... More

I have eaten here many times and the food is always good. The fish is fresh and I definitely recommend asking the advice of the waitress on which fish she suggests. The yuca fries were incredible!!! I love their ceviche too. The views are always spectacular and the park is gorgeous and very well kept. You do have to pay... More
