“What a find!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband had seen this place on a tv travel/foodie programme and it is so out of the way we couldnt find it at first and had to stop and ask directions but worth it. Nothing to look at from the road and it really is served outside from the backdoor of the fisheries and picnic tables, but wow, what great food and wonderful view of the dock.stone crab freshly caught and the best i have ever had.

“great concept”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Fish and seafood come in one end of the building and served right out the back door.We had stone crab 19.95 pound cracked and a buck for mustard and a grouper sandwich 14$. Great breeze and a nice setting made for a good time. Beer, soda and desserts available. Self service.

“Was ok”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

After reading many reviews, we went for lunch after a long drive down to Key Largo as it was rated so high. It was not what we expected as far as the food. Service was friendly and fast, but the food was just warm, and not what we expected from past reviews. Seating was great with a view.

“Great food, fun outdoor atmosphere”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Was really looking forward to eating here. It is a little hard to find, but worth it. I had the Lobster BLT, which was good, but a bit pricey for what you get at 15.95. It came on a croissant with fresh lettuce and tomato and a mayo dressing. The bacon was crispy and the sandwich was balanced, but should have had more lobster in my opinion. It came with fries which were hot, well seasoned and plentiful. My husband had the fried combo basket which was perfectly seasoned and fried to perfection. It also came with fries and slaw which was just ok and an afterthought. The combo included fish, huge shrimp and the best clams we had ever tasted. We also tried the conch fritters which were as good as any I have had. The outdoor seating was nice and plentiful. It was fun to watchthe boats come in and unload their catch. The retail area is a must, and we bought some smoked fish to bring home. The menu is surprisingly large, and everyone seemed to really enjoy their food. I would recommend and we will definitely return on our next trip.
