Happy hour is at 3pm if you are looking for drink specials. I made the classic error of not ordering the specialty of the house. My wife had a burger and I did have a bite and it was good. I should have ordered the inside out juicy lucy which would have been better than my pulled pork. It was... More

Food was good. Prices were too high. Small space inside to eat. Mainly a pub with some food. Lots of craft beers and mixed drinks.

Staff is friendly but the food was not so good. You start by waiting on yourself but then end up with a waitress when the food comes and to bring the bill. The chocolate shakes are actually Nutella which I threw away after realizing what was in it. The fries were way too salty and the pulled pork with North... More

This place is small, but is very busy because they do their specialties so well. My wife had the standard cheese burger; and I had the "juicy lucy", which is stuffed with pimiento cheese, garnished with bacon and chipotle aioli. Both delicious. Pork rinds were classic, fries were sumptuous and the craft beers were perfect. Would definitely eat here again.

There are tons of great small dives in the Florida Keys, this is a MUST! We go every year, and every year we are floored by how delicious it is. Our new favorite is the Banana Bread Ale and ice cream shake. So good!

Locals in the Keys have read about the Burger awards, the Wing awards, and about Guy Fieri highlighting MEAT on his trip to the Keys. I was scared that there would be lines across the street after that show, but the folks at MEAT have managed their success without taking away from the experience we guests receive. I regularly bring... More

Finally in the mood for a good burger while vacationing in the keys and we're SO glad we were! Have heard a lot of great stories about this place and can say they're all true. Virtually everything is house-made including many of the specialty meats, the condiments and the sides. The inside out juicy Lucy burger has won awards and... More

He place is truly a food experience: great burgers and side dishes; strongly recommended if you like MEAT. Service was also nice and attentive. A good place for a casual dinner out and experience truly valuable burgers and beers.

We went for dinner because we love burgers and we loved their burgers but, this isn't a cheap burger place.
