“Don't miss this place.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

The food and service here was brilliant! We had shrimp with key lime butter on angel hair pasta and the Morgan Salad, which consisted of strawberries, mandarin orange, blue cheese (although we opted for feta instead), caramelised pecan and topped with a raspberry dressing. Staff were really friendly too. If you are travelling through Islamorada, watch out as the building doesn't really have kerbside appeal and you could miss it.

“Small place, great food”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Stopped here while exploring the Keys on motorcycles. They had great raw oysters BUT the crackers were stale. Hope they stay on that because the rest of the meal was great. I had the fresh catch which was a Mahi prepared continental style. It tasted even better than it sounded on the menu. The server recommended a rice pilaf for my side which was an excellent compliment. Trust the servers here. They push what's good, not what's making the house money! I would definitely eat here again.

“Love their Shrimp & Grits!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

We discovered this gem while staying a week in Tavernier back in 2012, and enjoyed it so much we had several delicious dinners and a lunch.

Each meal was fresh, tasty and presented very nicely on the serving plate.

Besides the great food another reason we probably returned so many times during the week was the warm and friendly manner extended to us by the staff and owner.

So naturally when our trip this year took us from Ft Lauderdale to Key West by car it was a "must stop" opportunity for us to enjoy their wonderful Shrimp & Grits once again.

We were not disappointed, the dish was superb!

The shrimp were fresh, plentiful & meaty, the grits were perfectly cooked and just the right portion, the sauce was so delicious we found ourselves running our fingers around the edges of the bowl to get the remains - LOL.

Because we arrived in between the lunch and dinner service the wonderful fresh rolls they make in-house were unfortunately not ready when we were there.

We can't wait for our next opportunity to visit the Islamorada Shrimp Shack again and strongly encourage you to stop in to enjoy them for yourself!

“Shrimp”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

I have been here several times. It is casual and clean. I order the same thing every time.....cannot seem to try anything else. It is the Key lime shrimp with angel hair pasta. Makes me hungry just talking about it.
