This place is great! They cooked fish we caught on our chartered fishing trip on the "therapy" right in the harbor. It was a very cool experience to catch the fish and have this wonderful restaurant prepare it and cook it in no time.... Doesn't get any fresher than that!!! But the best part was the key lime pie... best... More

Food was really good & the portions were generous but our server acted like he could not have cared less that we were there. For example- We were there late - 8pm & the restaurant wasn't busy at all. Group of 4 ordered 3 appetizers & meals for all; total of bill was over $168.00. One of us ordered ice... More

Stopped at this restaurant because of the big sign out front that said seafood buffet. Turns out there isn't really a buffet. Food was decent, with large portions. However it was a bit expensive. Service wasn't great either.

The bartender was very nice and helpful. He made great suggestions on food we should try. We had the wahoo bites which were excellent. Also grab a seat outside and enjoy the view.

Stopped here for lunch out on a bike ride. Had salads with fish and grilled shrimp and fish tacos. Food was good and fresh, but service was worst of anywhere we had in Islamorada. Views are beautiful, and it was fun to walk around the docks and talk to the various boat crews.

My husband and I recently tied the knot in Islamorada. One of our favorite restaurants in the keys, is Wahoo's. We thought this would be a great place to have out wedding rehearsal dinner. With the threat of hurricane Matthew off of Florida's coast, the manager Jody was absolutely amazing and accommodating to my husband and I. With short notice... More

So good we stopped coming and going on our trip to the Keys, the fresh fish sandwiches and fish tacos were delicious as were the cocktails which were all very reasonably priced. It overlooks a small fishing cove and provides a quick and great value meal.

Went here because of the huge sign claiming a huge buffet: THERE IS NO BUFFET! They put the sign up months before building the buffet, yet somehow the back of the menu already claims that the buffet is "world famous." A company with dishonest advertising makes me question their food sourcing. The bartender was terrible, we had to send back... More

"PLEASE BUY YOURSELF SOME NEW GLASSES" The Seafood Buffet sign has been there for over 60 years and if you would of taken the time to really look you would of noticed it was not lit up and extremely faded. Before you openly trash someone on the internet you might want to be more aware of the facts. First clearly... More
