After years of passing through Marathon one of our friends told us to try Burdines and in summary we have been back 6 times since.. This is not a fancy restaurant, reminiscence of a fish camp restaurant, open air with a roof on it, on the second level overlooking the water and Boot Key. Try a fresh squeezed lemonade! We... More

Our kayak guide took us here during an all-day kayaking trip, calling it his favorite place. Had great grilled mahi mahi sandwiches and amazing fries sitting on the deck, taking in the views. Decent prices, great atmosphere.

A little hard to spot for a visitor to the keys but worth the journey. Sat on the upper deck overlooking the channel with the strong breezes keeping it comfortable. My wife loved her shrimp burger (whole pieces of shrimp) with spinach, etc. My taco salad was a success but they need to cut down the sodium in the beef.

We made a stop here during a long day on the water. I had been before and wanted to show my friend the place. Again, I got the mahi with pesto and it was remarkable. I also like the convenience of being able to gas up on their dock. Staff does a great job attending to you and making sure... More

Everytime we go to Marathon, this is our go to place to Burgers. I guarantee you that this will become a favorite spot of yours also. Their burgers are to die for and the fries are the best I have ever had, one order of the fries will feed four of you. Be sure to try their Key Lime pie... More

Awesome shrimp burger for my hubbie and I had a chicken and spinach burger with melted feta in it. Yum! Great service and great sandwiches. Sandwiches are messy to eat but they provide plenty of paper towels to wipe your hands. At least a 9 if not 10!!!

The burger and hand cut fries can't be beat. My mother loved her fried mahi. The hush puppies were yummy especially with the raspberry jalapeño dipping sauce. Top that off with good service and a beautiful view and you have a winning combination.

We ate here a couple of times in the summer. No complaints about the place. Plenty of parking , good service, nice food. Nice setting, overlooking the mangroves and watching the sun set. The bill can get a little high quite easily- the second time we went back, we were a bit more careful about what we ordered to keep... More

We were looking for a place that had a water view and dog friendly and found much more. The staff very friendly and inviting, the food was to die for. Between the staff, the food and the scenery you couldn't ask for a better location.

Not sure what we expected from all the good reviews. We sat at the bar for lunch and I'm still unclear who actually was the bartender. Had to wave to get attention for service and to order. No draft beers. Bottles $4.25. Nice location with gulf views. Cost us $31.50 without tip for 2 burgers, french fries and iced teas... More
