After downing a few of my favorite brews, I had a great dog and some great fried chicken. Service was fast and friendly. I will be back soon…

My husband and I stopped here for lunch based on reviews while driving back home from the keys. Located in a little strip mall out of the way, we wouldnt even have seen it from the road if we weet looking for it! We're so glad we did. Chorizo burger and house burger were delectable with the parmesan truffle oil french fries. Simple food made with equisite care and finesse. Not your average bar food! Beer selection was great, as another reviewer noted. I wish I were drinking as they had a few tasty selections. Chimay is an old standby that you dont find often in hole in the wall taprooms. Would have liked to try the banana bread ale... unfortunately we live about 300 miles north of here so we may be hard pressed to get back anytime soon. But when we do, we will most definitely come back.

On the way back home from the best gym in the Keys, Mariner's Wellness Center, we were discussing where to have lunch. Clark mentioned MEAT or Lorelei. I said Lorelei for the outside view/ambiance, but at the last minute said , "Naw, let's do MEAT." Thank God for that brilliant intervention. George Patti and Tom Smith who opened Tasters in Tavernier a few years ago have rocked the lunch scene in Islamorada at the Plaza 88. The decor and ambiance is perfect: trendy and comfortable. The food is creative, fresh ingredients, ingenious recipes, lovely presentation, a treat for the taste-buds, bottomline it is superb. The beverage selection is unique and unparallelled in the Mid Keys. Craft beers, wines and great non alcoholic beverages. The service is efficient and friendly. I hope I don't eat there so much I tire of it, but with these two owners on board I don't think that is even a remote possibility. Looking for 6 star food in a 6 star establishment? Try this one out.
