The main draw for the restaurant is the on-beach dining experience, which is wonderful. The seating is steps from the water and really sets the tone for dining in the keys. The food is very good - the caesar salad is a huge (almost entree)...portion which delicious dressing, and the fish dishes we had were very well done. Service was friendly, but slightly confused and our entrees arrived mere minutes after we received our appetizers, which was awkward. The key lime pie was delicious!More

Amazing view, terrific service, less than average food, overpriced. This place was better 1 year ago… now it does not worth the price paid. I will never return.

Our first time here and we loved it!! What made it extra special besides the gorgeous view and the delicious food was our very wonderful server by the name of Mendi! She did her utmost best to make sure that we enjoyed our dining experience...there! Marker 88 is so lucky to have her as their representative. She was excellent! We got to sit in those old school rocking tables, which was a blast! We had our little Chihuahuas, Lucky n Love, with us and they got to stretch out and then doze off comfortably. We appreciate that Marker 88 is dog friendly. We ordered the special of the day, the Lobster omlette with potatoes and the French Toast with Bacon and Iced Mocha coffee. Both were so delicious!!! What a great lunch/brunch. We definitely plan to go back on our next trip to the Keys! Beautiful location, beautiful trees, ocean, and the best service in town! Don't miss this spot!!More

Busy, popular restaurant with patio and beach dining, fabulous sunset views, large menu for cocktails and food, fun atmosphere. The coconut shrimp was delicious and the tropical salad was refreshing and large enough to serve 2 or 3 people. The berry cobbler was a wonderful...ending to a wonderful meal!More

Marker 88 never disappoints! Great food, service and spectacular view. Go for dinner and the sunset, and don't worry, they don't rush you. Bring your sunglasses and sit back and enjoy.

Have been here on and off for decades . Last number of years the quality and value have gone downhill. In fairness the outdoor ambience has been expanded and improved (see title).

We found this at the last minute since most restaurants do not take reservations and you have a long wait. The setting is lovely. The food is good but not great. It took forever to get my Grandsons steak out after all our dinners were...delivered. I had lobster and would not order again.More

We were headed to Layton Key for the weekend with the family and decided to grab something to eat. It was around 8pm 8/4, they sat us down, waited and waited for someone to come and take our order, they never came. We picked up...and left, I guess they were too busy attending other clients that they didn’t even bother bringing us water. Sad because, this has been a favorite place when ever I drive down to the keys with my family. This time was an awful service! Going to spend my money somewhere else!More

Fun spot for lunch or drinks at the bar. Dinner menu somewhat pricey. Very good burgers and crisp fries. Tasty! Thanks to great barkeep Brett or Brad…not sure. Nice guy. Stop by and enjoy the fun atmosphere. Joel…Delray Beach, FL

Beach seating probably means sitting at tables that are right on the beach, on the sand, a few yards from the water. Outdoor seating likely is very open air, like on a deck,
