If you need decore, or fancy atmosphere forget it. If you want great food served by a very friendly staff, this is it. The smiles and warm welcome are the Florida Keys from an earlier time, as is the fresh seafood. This in not a belly buster, over spiced, haute cusine kind of place. The food is fresh, especially the... More

Only two other tables occupied, the host greeted us wearing a rather greasy cap not in keeping with the style of the restaurant. The food was good but portions extremely small.

I have visited Ma's Fish Camp 3 times now. When you bring your own fish I would give it a 5 star rating, they cook it really well with a number of options. When you visit without your own fish, the menu is too static, no specials, portions are small and if you want bread, its $2 bucks. We visited... More

We were looking forward to dining at Ma's Fish Camp since the last time we ate there and were delighted to experience the same amazing food and super friendly atmosphere again and again, with each and every trip we make to the Keys. One feels welcome the instant one walks in due to the friendly greeting by the staff and... More

Fantastic food! We brought some tuna and snapper that we had caught that day. They prepared the fish in different styles and flavors. It was cooked to perfection and the flavors were amazing. Would definitely recommend this place!

My husband and I stopped at Ma's on our ride back from Key West. After discussing key lime pies with a clerk at Office Max, of all places, she told us Ma's in Islamorada, was the best. Key lime pie is my husband's favorite so we definitely had to stop. We weren't ready for lunch quite yet, so I cannot... More

Our restaurant atmosphere is warm and friendly. Our food is prepared delightfully light, healthy and flavorful. Our seafood is grilled with lovely toppings - and if you desire fried, we fry in rice oil for good health. We do have delicious, made in house desserts including our Awarding winning traditional Key Lime Pie, German Chocolate Cake and locals favorite Hummingbird Cake. MA's also has a desirable Wine and Beer menu.
