“Great views with excellent food!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

My family of five visited the keys and ate at this restaraunt by chance because we couldn't find the one we originally were looking for. It ended up being a very pleasant surprise! The lazy day style fish and conch was delicious. The service was fast, friendly, and helpful with us and our small children. We frequent the keys and will be back!

“Gorgeous view, tasty food!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had lunch here and were the only ones in the whole place-- I don't know why. It was one of the best meals we had in our week in the keys. We were seated outside and the view was lovely--if we come back, we'll certainly come for a sunset. I ordered the gyro, which was a little too dry-- the meat was overcooked, and there wasn't enough sauce. It wasn't terrible, though. My husband had a burger, and said it was wonderful. We had been told about their banana bread, so we ordered it as an appetizer. We got a little loaf for $3, warm from the oven. Yum! The prices were reasonable, and our server was really cheerful and nice. We'll definitely be back.

“If you are in Marathon Florida don't miss this wonderful restaurant.”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Enjoy some of the best food in the Florida Keys. You will never be letdown it is always fresh & always good. We sat outside underneath the fans on the water and were actually cool enough to enjoy our dinner. The server was delightful and was training another server while she worked with us. He made sure I always had ice from my ice tea ( since it melted rapidly). We watched Boats as they Pulled away from the dock sailing into the sunset. And enjoyed watching two young boys with your fishing rods and their catch proudly walk through the dining room. You have to watch for the turn to get to the restaurant other than that ENJOY another great Keys dining experience!

“Lazy Days should be the #1 restaurant in Marathon!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

We've been coming to the Keys for years and Lazy Days has become a regular restaurant of ours. We love it! The quality is great and the value is true for what you pay for. Entrees are huge portions (about 3 fish filets) with a side, plus choice of soup or salad. They also serve up some great drinks! Some recommendations- crab cake (best crab cake you'll ever eat), mahi mahi (lazy day style preparation) and the yellow tail snapper-jalapeño encrusted. If you're in Marathon or Islamorada (another location) you've got to try this place!
