“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We stopped in here for dinner one night ate outside which we had a nice breeze. The atmosphere is great,relaxed, live music. Food was a little overpriced cost was over $100.00 for 2 people eating on plastic lawn furniture. We would go again for the atmosphere there but would probably eat somewhere else first.

“Most memorable day of my life”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

I recently got married at Marker 88 and couldn't imagine having a better experience anywhere else. On one of the only sandy beaches you can find in the keys, I walked to my husband under palm trees, facing the sunset on the bay which was peeking through numerous lightning storms over the many small mangrove islands scattered in the gulf. This was the view for all of the diners at marker 88. The entire restaurant celebrated with us as we walked off of the beach and danced to fabulous music provided by the talented musician Lee Sharp who plays at the restaurant occasionally. The bar provided our guests with excellent key lime mojiots and pina coladas amoung other fabulous cocktails while we took breathtaking photos. All of our guests complimented the food. Expertly cooked filets paired with an equally professionally made bernaise, horseradish encrusted mahi mahi (so flavorful), and south beach chicken over pasta, not a noodle of which was left on a plate and I'm sure it wasn't due to the fact they were starved because we had incredible appetizers made from the general manager herself and hand passed around by our servers. As for the servers, they never let a glass of wine go under 1/4 of the way full and were entirely too helpful ensuring the toasts, food, cake, and such went off with out a hitch, or in this case with a perfect hitch. Thank you Becca and Adrian for making our night extra special. The price of our priceless night was surprisingly affordable. We will definitely recommend to everyone who wants a great meal paired with an awesome view and atmosphere to go and enjoy marker 88.

“Expensive for the quality of the food”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Nice spot, great sunset, found the food over priced for the quality of the food. Sandwich menu turned out pretty good but the higher cost items were just okay on the flavor scale.

“Awesome view”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Unfortunately view was the best part. Beers were not real cold, food is overpriced, service was ok. Was expecting more when I saw the menu prices.

“Bliss”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Perfect stop between Miami and Key West. Resembles a private club with a beach, pier, restaurant and bar. The waiters are swift and understand that cold drinks should be served fast. Good food! Tuna salad! Key lime pie! We even got a salt scrub!
Relaxed and cool place with good food!
