2nd time this week we have eaten here.... Party of 6 tonight, no problems with being served EIGHT different tasters of beer before we made our choices....Everyone very happy with their food orders (which we all got to taste). Between MEAT Eatery and their sister restaurant "Tasters" (Tavernier Towne), these guys are providing some of the best food you can find in the Upper Keys, no hesitation in recommending them.

“Really Tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

We went to M.E.A.T today after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, and we're really pleased that we did. I had the lobster roll which was delicious and my husband really enjoyed his "Juicy Lucy" burger. There were a good range of beers on draft and some interesting looking sodas. I'd highly recommend - the staff were really great too.

“The best burger ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

A friend from Florida said we had to stop at this place on route to Key West. He said it would be the best burger we would ever eat and he wasn't wrong! In fact, the food, beers and hospitality were all fantastic. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and George the Chef talked us through the mouth-watering menu, explaining how each dish was made, how the meat was cured and how all the sauces etc were home made. He also encouraged us to sample a few of the great beers on offer. We had two burgers (one from the main menu and one from the specials) with parmesan and truffle fries. The burgers were so tasty and perfectly cooked and the fries were gorgeous. The food here is really phenomenal and great value. We loved it so much that we returned on our way back to Miami from Key West. We only wish it was on our doorstep so we could go back every week! Thanks George and team, and best of luck!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Great spot. You will not find better food at this cost in the keys. Period. I live in key west and have eaten everything in between and word of advice if your making the drive to key west fit this in on the drive down. friendly staff but The food really is special there. House made bacon... house made pork rinds... Ketchup... Chips ... Duck fat fried french fries Etc . Etc. It's killer.
