Fantastic and unassuming restaurant. Good service with excellent food. We visited two nights running tried different plates but portions are far too big, my wife and I could not finish. My wife ordered two starters that would satisfy four people and I had the chicken which was two plump breasts with a side of asparagus. This was way too much... More

We go to Ziggie & Mad Dogs each time we are in the area and are never disappointed with the service or food, as this place is simply wonderful! Our server Cesar O, was super sweet and knowledgeable and attentive to our every request and made our dining experience very special. From the scallop appetizers, to the Delmonico steaks and...

Ziggie Mad Dogs is the absolute best. I've been here a hand full of times and have never had a bad meal or experience here. I went there this past weekend to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and once again they definitely went beyond there task to deliver top service. The hostess was super friendly and accommodating and the food was... More

Ordered the Cajun dip which was great. Homemade bread and honey butter was good. Steaks were a disappointment. Such a disappointment. Hubs ordered the bone-in ribeye and I ordered the King Filet. Nice meat cut but ZERO seasoning- not even salt. Clearly the pan or oil was too hot when they seared it because both of our steaks actually tasted... More

This place is simply amazing. The servers are all well versed and certainly top-notch. The steaks are the best I've ever had, which you might not expect in the Florida Keys. The atmosphere is great. The sides are amazing as well. If you are in the keys, it's a must.

We dined here to celebrate our Anniversary. Service was elegant and our dinners were awesome. Had the best filet ever. Well the second best-had a similar steak in 1985 in St.Croix. Yes it was that good. The side dish of potatoes Au Gratin was divine. Told the server it was our anniversary and she brought us a wonderful key lime... More

Just a little bit of a wait, but it was worth it. A little noisy but what can you expect when people are having a great time? The food was good and the service was friendly and warm.

The story of Ziggy & Mad Dog's sums up the Florida Keys to a T. Colorful past, lost in time, and then resurrected to glory. This quiet little Islamorada steak house gets over looked like so many other Keys landmarks, until you finally run out of other places to try. Then you're sad it took you this long to get... More

This was the second time dining at this restaurant. The first time my service was second to none. Not so much this time. The food is amazing. The apps are incredible. Food is fresh. Great selection. Our waiter was just not up to par. I will definitely return to this restaurant again and again for the food. I won't let... More

The Triple tail was awesome, truffle Mac and cheese was very creamy and delicious, Broccoli and Cheese also good. The Delmonico ribeye was chewy. Not what I expected fir the steak
