Love this neat little locals spot. Everything looks homemade, even the ketchup and the mustard I'm told. I had the beer cheese soup and the juicy burger and they were both delightful! The craft beer selection is great, but today the ice cold Bud light was the ticket for me. They also have a happy hour. Keep up the great... More

Enjoyed the juicy Lucy burger and all the homemade condiments, each with a distinct flare and nice flavorful kick sure not to be found anywhere else in Islamorada. Fun bar atmosphere totally suitable for kids and adults alike. Sit up at the counter to be served or take a table and walk up to place your order at counter. Great... More

This little place is very cool....good hamburgers and a variety of craft beers. The decor is nice too. The staff members were friendly and helpful. My wife & I had an early dinner at around 5 PM and there was plenty of room. I expect around 6:30 every night it becomes crowded. We ate and had a beer for under... More

We saw this was a diners and dives restaurant and decided to try. It was a real 'whole in the wall' from the exterior. We we went in for an early lunch. There were only two others there. When we left there was a line. The hamburgers were amazing, cheese fries were excellent as well. Milkshakes were great, excellent array... More

Well the "where do we eat" argument ended with this place. We decided to try something new and who had good reviews. So we drove right by this place looking for it. Went back found it and the outside does not match the inside. Really small cool place. The whole right wall is bar seating with tons of beer on... More

One of the best burgers we've had in a long time. They have a large selection of craft beers as well as brand favorites.

We had high expectations after seeing this restaurant featured on Guy Fieri's DDD. The burger was good but nothing that special. I did like the breading and size of the fried pickle appetizers. We probably won't return on subsequent visits to the Keys.

We rolled in here after a long day of traveling with our family of six... and everyone came out completely satisfied!! As it has been said earlier, it is in a strip mall, so you have look for it. They have a little something for everyone and a great atmosphere! Cow/Pig, Nancy Pants and Juicy Lucy were all hits! It... More

The Meat Eatery and Taproom offers a break from all the delicious seafood in the Keys in serving up great burgers and craft beers. What a delicious combination.
