We had a great meal here, the conch fritters & fish dip were excellent apps. Our sever had great knowledge of the extensive beer menu. It was kid friendly and the sweet server made a great place even better!

The appearance of this place is very deceiving. It's a real jewel of US1@Marathon. Staff is very friendly. Starters (stuffed calamari and conch fritter) were just wonderful. All entrees we ordered (Fish&Chips, Tuna Sliders, Drunken Clams) were from the fresh daily catch, including the Mahi...More

Herbies is the oldest operating restaurant in the Heart of the Florida Keys! Having been established in the late 1940's under the name Maggie's Chowder House, it has become a landmark restaurant and continued local favorite. While the restaurant is well established, the only thing old school about the menu is the fact that everything is prepared from scratch here, and that includes grinding our own grass fed beef, conch, sausage, and hot dogs (when available). And, our beer selection is unmatched from Miami to Key West. All on tap craft beer. No, you will not find a National branded beer here, but you will find true American fresh craft beer along with some exceptionally fine wines all poured by the glass. So, don't let the Florida road side shack appearance fool you! Come on in and enjoy some of the best food in the Heart of the Keys!
