Great beer selection (though not cheap), and the chef (who came out and spoke with us) did good work, giving choices from tasty brauts to a chickpea and edamame burger to good St. Louis style BBQ. This could become my favorite place. Get there early, there are only half a dozen tables or seats at the bar.

On March 7, 2013 we went there for lunch. I had a brisket sandwich with fries. Aside from the fact the fries were cooked in duck fat (I have no idea exactly what this does) the restaurant makes its own condiments. There was super ketchup with secret sauce that was yummy and the brisket was melt in your mouth delicious. There were interesting beers and even craft brewed root beers (my fav). The staff was friendly & knowledgeable and even the fellow patrons were a delight. We were a 3 with a baby and the guests moved around on their own so we could put 2 tables together. It was a great place. Can't wait to stop in again.

Do not miss MEAT!! Easy to find at mile marker 88 on right side heading North. George and the crew are real welcoming folks. It's cool how you grab a menu, seat yourself, then walk up front to order. The real downer is that there are too many great items on the menu to try. We will go back before we leave Islamorada. The homemade fare of burgers, chicken, and a great special of brisket is awesome! Our group had the brisket, nancy pants burger and a house burger. Burgers were big enough to share. Fresh toppings were noticeable on the burger and let's not forget the special touch: branding the burger buns. The brisket special melted in my mouth. The condiments are really special - homemade ketchup and mustard. But above all, save room for dessert. We had banana bread pudding and a chocolate peanut butter banana cupcake - both were over the top. I wish mine was a double serving.
Great selection of beer, and microbrews sodas. Milkshakes are another must - try the one with Nutella ice cream.
