We have enjoyed the fish dip here on several occasions. The lounge, located directly above the worldwide sportsman shop, has a terrace that overlooks the marina and is a lovely spot to relax and watch the world go by. Good time to visit is late afternoon, when the fishing guides and clients return and other vessels come back to dock.... More

If I could rate 0 stars, I would. Have dined many places in the Keys and no experience like this one. We decided to show up for happy hour to try it, mistake. There was no one in the restaurant but us. We were greeted by a less than enthused hostess who told us to pick any table. Once outside,... More

We recently attend an outdoor beachside wedding at Islamorada Fish House. Zane Grey Lounge is upstairs in the same complex. It poured rain before and right after the ceremony, so plan "B" was to move the small wedding reception upstairs to Zane Grey. Interesting eclectic space with a porch, where many of us ate for the wedding banquet and a... More

We were the only people in the indoor restaurant and we were greeted warmly by the bartender/server. We ordered and shared the appetizer if Crab Cake, Conch Fritter and... More

I am always surprised when I enter Zane Grey's and find it empty. Perhaps it's because some mistake it for a restaurant. It's not, it's a BAR. Dark woods, taxidermy work, photos of long dead fish and anglers. Knowledgeable bartenders too. This not the place to go for a cold Miller Lite. Martinis, Manhattans and Margaritas are the way to...

Travel up the elevator and enter through the expansive sports store / gift shop to the Lounge. It is on the second floor, overlooking the marina. Great for sunset views looking over the far Everglades. Zane Grey was a fabled writer who came to the Keys for sports fishing and is said to have influenced Ernest Hemingway's own passion for...
