This restaurant was in walking distance from the condo we rented. The atmosphere is like an older country club that was never updated, however, the food and service were outstanding. The first night we were here, we had the stone crab claws for an appetizer,...More

Excellent restaurant with great food, service and Bar area. Reasonable prices and nice atmosphere. The problem is the acoustics in the meeting room next to the dining area. When someone is speaking or playing music it's not possible to hear them clearly. The room echos.We...More

Service was great. Wine list was awful. Dinner was pretty mediocre. If you’re stuck in a condo there & sick of cooking, this would be a change. Otherwise, go to Marathon for much better dining.

The 5:00 pm bartender that takes over after happy hour definitely needs an attitude adjustment. He failed to greet us, take a drink order, or offer a menu. This guy needs to be removed from serving the public.

Should be Best of Marathon! Predictable, always good! Anything you want, fish, pasta, soup, salad! Can't go wrong! Owners, servers, bartenders, bussers, always helpful and pleasant!

We have lived in Marathon many years and one of our go-to favorites is Key Colony inn. Whether it's for a week day lunch or a holiday special Buffet, it's always a place we can count on for a great meal

The menu is the same, but they do have daily and nightly specials. The carpeting was taken out and new carpet installed a few months ago, otherwise the decor is the same.

I can't remember exactly what time happy hour started at both Sparky's and Colony Beach, but I believe it was 4pm-6pm, and the shrimp and drink specials were best at Sparky's. Love it down there!
