Dated atmosphere but clean and neat. Food was a little pricy for what it was. Waitress was great! There desserts looked very interesting but we were full. We would go back for dessert next time we are in area.

Tradition dictates that we stop at Ma's Fish Camp for our first dinner in the keys. This year I had the seafood pasta which included shrimp and scallops. As usual, it was cooked just right and came with a very crisp dinner salad. Fishermen can bring their own catch in to be prepared and served. They offer a wide variety... More

I had a great lunch. It was the fish tacos. Also the humming bird cake was good. I would go back there.

I've been to Ma's fish camp twice and both times enjoyed it. The first time I had a Mahi Mahi sandwich, which was very good. The second time I tried the fish tacos, one grilled and one fried. They were both great!

I had read about this place on a blog which raved about the Key Lime Pie. The waiter was really friendly and explained what Hush Puppies were. The fish taco was delicious and we shared a slice of Key Lime Pie. To die for! Nice and sharp with a fluffy meringue top.

The food here was amazingly wonderful treat. If you stop here and don't have the classic key lime pie you don't know what you are missing. It's the best in the Keys.

We had a key lime pie and a fish soup. Both was very delicious. Easy to find, friendly and helping waitresses. Nice atmosphere, try to get a table at the window.

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.

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.
