We had a late lunch - the special (lobster, stone crabs and shrimps) and some fish. All was very fresh. We even tried the dessert - it was fine too but did not match the sea food ;-).

This place is a hidden treasure. It is a bit off the beaten path but is a stop during every trip I take to the Keys. It has outdoor seating, amazing fish with decent prices.

We stopped for lunch and had the best lobster BLT. They also have fresh fish of all kinds from the fish market that is part of the restaurant. If you like lobster, you have to get the Lobster BLT sandwich. It's a bit pricey but worth every cent. The outdoor seating is next to a marina, which is the perfect... More

Nice lunch spot by the water. The wife and I had fish sandwiches, one grouper and one hogfish. We also had a side of conch fritters. The fritters left a lot to be desired but the fish sandwiches were good and very fresh. We would go back and skip the fritters.

Wonderful place for lunch. Friendly staff, prompt service, freshest seafood outside of catching it yourself. Maria from the retail area was very approachable and guest friendly. Decent prices and they even cracked the crab claws for us so we could eat them on the patio without conch fritters. Worth finding and most definitely will return again.

Grabbed a Hog Fish sandwich and a place on the deck for lunch this week. The sandwich was awesome and the setting was even better. Nothing fancy about it, just good food and a great location.

Service with a smile. Had the grouper sandwich which was excellent! the coconut shrimp were good. the Lobster BLT was awesome! It is very casual, you order at the window and then find a table. Once your buzzer goes off you have to pick up your food at another window. Right on the marina.

Whether you're in Key Largo or Washington State....if it's October 15 through May 15, the stone crabs are fabulous! They also have a full menu of great seafood...but it's stone crab season, folks! I'm having some shipped for Christmas!
