Description: HUMBLE BEGINNINGS FOR THE LARGEST TIKI BAR IN THE FLORIDA KEYS Boondocks opened their doors over 25 years ago as a small ice cream shop. The current kitchen was the entire building. Quickly realizing Ramrod Key was in need of more than just ice cream the original owners expanded the menu to include sandwiches, and later added beer and wine to the mix. It wasn't until 2001 that the real transformation began to take place. Lanny was first to arrive in the Florida Keys and scope out Boondocks. Seeing past the overgrown trees and broken tables he immediately called this father, Larry and long time friend and colleague, John to hop the next flight down and check out their new home. With Lanny's vision, John's restaurant expertise and Larry's backbreaking work ethic, Boondocks Grille and Draft House and Miniature Golf has become one of the most popular destinations on the overseas highway.

The entertainment was enjoyable and the food was very good. I have to say that the Elton John tribute entertainer was the highlight of our time there. The Chocolate Pudding Cake, awesome! Trivia night or just listening to music, the staff was friendly and the atmosphere was perfect.

We had a large party of 13 and were accommodated, although it seemed too much for our server to handle. He suggested the fish of the day which was Hogfish and I got it prepared with lime pepper. It was very good! I have mashed potatoes and veggies on the side. They had a James Taylor cover band the night we went and they were pretty good too. Overall a nice experience.

Boondocks continues to re-invent itself. Chad, the manager, leads by example. You can find him taking drink orders and bussing tables. He always has a smile and kind word for his customers. The waitstaff, particularly Vivian, are fast and friendly and accurate. Anastasia is a great hostess who keeps her cool! The food is very good and quite ample. The bang bang shrimp is amazing. The live music keeps us coming back time after time.
You would have a great "keys experience" visiting Boondocks. We love it.

Wings were good but over priced. The drinks were mild and the waitress kept telling everyone that they were measured shots of alcohol.
