“Nice Fish market”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The fish market had a large variety of fresh fish and stone crabs. Even though the staff was helpful, they were not friendly and had a poor attitude. The fish was very good and the outside seating area on the water was very tropical like the keys. We did not eat at the restaurant, we bought fish to take home.

“To die for!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We like it so well we ate there 3 times in a week. I bought fish dip from the retail shop and ate it all myself...went back to take some home to Montana. It made the trip fine in my checked bag. Everything we tried from the menu was very good.

“Nice casual atmosphere, disappointing food”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

This place gets rave reviews and seemed like exactly the kind of "local dive" that we were looking for. Unfortunately the food just wasn't very good. My wife had the the lobster B.L.T, and the lobster was tasteless. I had a blackened hogfish sandwich. The fish was actually very good, but the thick bun masked the taste and texture.

“Quite possibly the worst I've ever had”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

I don't know where to begin. Okay, the location is very nice. It's in Key Largo. Nice place. Assuming you don't mind non-stop tourist traps. I'll say this about the food: truly awful. The lobster? How do you make that tasteless? The fries? Cold as could be. Did they even bother to heat them before dumping them into the basket? The lobster BLT: a good idea gone terribly wrong. How long, just how long, had that bun been sitting in the freezer? Talk about freezer burn! It was repulsive!
