Was suggested while at Islamaroda to try M.E.A.T., glad we did. Excellent house burger and my wife had the brisket sandwich special which she too enjoyed. What was especially interesting was the homemade condiments (mango/chipolte ketchup) and the wide variety of home brewed sodas. This establishment is small with only eight tables but plenty of bar stools after all it is a pub. No table service, you place your order at the counter then they deliver it to your table,quickly.The place appears to be a local favorite, so you know it won't be "BAD". The music could have been more mainstream, or "mellower" but for some reason we have encountered a strong following to alternative music (I think that's what they call it) here at Islamorada, it's just a little strange to hear songs for Armageddon,while having a meal. But that doesn't discount the fact that the meal was excellent. I wish them continued Good Luck, for we would definitely return when we come back.

Lobster roll. Do it, just do it!, It's awesome. Also the Pulled Pork sandwich. Great value. Great taste. Great service. Only negative is its a bit hard to find the place. Right hand side driving North on O.S. hwy. Don't go there until you're hungry, because they'll fill you up.

Value is excellent. If nothing else, go there for the experience.

Went to MEAT for lunch with the wife. I love the place. Great burgers - I had the cow and pig burger. Ground beef and homemade chrizo sausage pattie with beer sauted onions with all the fixings. They make their own ketchups and mayos too. The fries are amazing - sea salt and duck fat...mmmmm. So are the string oniopn rings. Great selection of beers and hard ciders. Even Root Beer on tap.

I am a "foodie" and this place is awesome. At first, you think it's the "run-of-the-mill" burger gastropub... but it's much more! With handcrafted burgers, duck-fat fries, home-brewed ales AND soda, handmade ketchup and mustard and a wonderful menu of sandwiches, sides and awesome desserts..................it's truly a culinary experience.

Everything is fresh and made right there on the premises. And, the menu is very interesting and has lots of different flavor combinations. It doesn't look like much from the road.. but I promise it's worth the trip! It's a 2 hour drive from my house... and I will be back again!
