We arrived on Marathon after a 4 hour drive just after noon and this was the first restaurant we saw entering the island. Not knowing what to expect, but needing to satisfy a starving family of 4, we stopped. Great choice my said after we sat down! The view was tranquil and the food hit the spot.

It was our first time for dinner and our last. The dish was tasteless, cold, not any food aesthetics and the fish was dry and over cooked. In my opinion the fish was not fresh as told but frozen. My friend was unhappy with his dish as well. The waitress and manager were professional, courteous and compensated us for the... More

This restaurant is located in front of Holiday Inn Xpress Marathon. Since we always stay in this hotel when traveling to key west we have been couple times to the Island Fish Company restaurant. It opens from breakfast and stays open until 10 pm with a large variety of food. Food is good quality and not expensive and it has... More

Excellent offerings of seafood open air restaurant. Service was quick however the waiters were not engaging and the one "dude with sunglasses: should look for a job in a skate shop. I found it unsettling to pair $75 for a meal and have a waiter with his hat on backwards and sunglasses. Less than professional. Aside from this little distraction... More

Island Fish Co. was located right across the street from our hotel in our recent vacation in the Keys. Good thing because we were so full from delicious food that the after dinner walk did us some good! We had conch fritters at every restaurant we went to, and Islands were hands down our favorites! Our kids loved the fried... More

Their menu, their location and the casual atmosphere of being in The Keys makes this a magical spot to eat any meal (or drink for that matter)! This is our 3rd time to visit here and if it was closer, it would be a lot more often! We were seated directly next to the water and it was a lot... More

We stopped hear for dinner when we drove from Miami to Key West. We have a 2 yr old and were looking for a family friendly place to stop for a bit. The restaurant staff was very nice and understanding (especially with a small child running around). Overall the food was good and had large portions. My wife had the... More

After a successful day of fishing, we sought out a restaurant that would cook what we caught. The Island Fish Company was recommended by out Fishing Guide. No disappointment on our point. Our waitress recognized immediately what we wanted and guided us through the process. Our catch was prepared family style and was very tasty. Make sure to top off... More

Very mixed feelings on this restaurant, the fish sandwiches are awesome but the fish dinners are smaller portions than the dinners. When you order any shrimp meal the shrimp are small and tastless its like they got them from Costco. The servers are all great but not that impressed we have been going their for around 15 years on and... More

Not good. Felt like we weren't wanted from 5 mins after walking in. Overheard a server being told to stop chatting to customers and hurry up!! $25 seafood pasta was completely drowned in cream we needed a net or rod to find the scarce seafood. Shrimp tacos drowned in cheese. With four or five tables still dining they were sweeping... More
