A park ranger pointed us to this gem. It's off the highway a bit with no signage advertising that we saw. Mostly local crowd. Awesome service from the staff. Great views. Mr ranger recommended the bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp, good call.

Showed up on Saturday evening to watch college football and they only had one tv. They had no idea what channel college football was even on. I think this place would be awesome during the day, watching the boat traffic going in and out.

We had sesame tuna and mahi mahi quesadillas. The tuna was perfectly done. It was a rainy day but sunset would be beautiful here. The key lime pie was delicious.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local and did not disappoint! We loved the view from the high deck overlooking the water and it afforded a wonderful breeze. The hand cut fries were delicious and so was everything else! This restaurant is off the beaten path and a favourite of the locals. With the quality of the food... More

Chiki Tiki is on a high deck overlooking Boot Key. To get there turn east onto 15th street in Marathon, drive until the marina, climb the stairs and enjoy. Burdines is popular with the locals for its casual atmosphere and low prices. I had a dolphin sandwich and fries $7.95, the beer was another couple of bucks.

Our kayaking tour guide Miranda from AquaVentures recommended this restaurant when we kayaked past it. Fantastic place for lunch and dinner. We went there for lunch right after our kayak trip and had a great place to sit and watch the boats. We came back with some of our fish we caught with Sea Dog Charters, the seasoning they prepared...

I reviewed this under Burdines, same place, I guess it has 2 names. Actually I asked what this name meant and the owner just laughed & laughed. It is that kind of place - good fresh & week prepared food in a friendly place full of local boaters, people who love to fish & live near the ocean. You would... More
