I had lunch there between dive trips with Key Dives. It is just across the parking lot from the shop, and adjacent to the docks. The sandwiches are huge, I could only eat half, but they use the freshest ingredients. The tuna salad was made with fresh caught tuna, and was the best I've ever had. It is a small... More

We only stopped to use the bathroom and get some coffee but decided to try their breakfast sandwich on one of their freshly made biscuits . They offer three different meats, ham, bacon or sausage. I had the ham, egg and cheese. I am not usually a fan of biscuits, but this was like something I've never tasted before. It... More

We called the day before and placed an order for lunches that we could take with us on our day out fishing in the back country. They have a pretty large menu selection. We stopped in the next morning on our way out to fish, grabbed our meals and were on our way. The people were very friendly and courteous.... More

I really liked this place, but I don't want to mislead people into thinking it's something that it's not. It's a very casual marina cafe where most people grab a bite or a box lunch before going out fishing. If you're seeking "decor", "ambience" or any of those other things you think of with a Very Good rating - go... More

We were driving from Miami to Key West and were absolutely starving, when Bud and Mary's came into view. According to Google Maps, we could get food there, so we pulled in. The first thing I have to say is that the rest rooms were wonderful - clean, bright, clean, airy, and clean! Did I mention clean? That is something... More

If you are looking for a tasty burger, look no more. At Bud and Mary's Marina. Go get you one of these burgers. Then, you can wander into the dive shop and onto the docks to take a look around.

If you are going out fishing at Bud and Mary's don't eat breakfast before you go there! Wait and eat at Kev's Café right there by the tackle shop. Best breakfast in the area!! This breakfast is so big it will last you for hours of fishing. Want to take a boxed lunch out fishing with you , the box... More

Excellent for breakfast. Had my most memorable poached egg with avocado and tomato smothered in hollandaise! Family owned and operated. Affordable and well worth the trip!

Located right in Bud n' Mary's marina, this is a great little place to grab your breakfast before going fishing on one of the many charters or diving at Key Dives.

We are located at Bud N Mary's Marina in Islamorada, FL. We are a small sandwich shop that has good food for a decent price. We have been at Bud N Marys for four years now and we keep getting popular year after year. A nice place to sit outside on the water with your family. We are also a pet friendly restaurant.
