“Lunch n Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Sitting at TJs tiki bar chatting with the friendly bartenders and enjoying an awesome lunch while taking in a spectacular view could only be described as lunch in paradise. Great service, great food and great atmosphere.

“Great sunset spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

My girlfriend and I are locals in Marathon and our friends have been telling us to go check out the tiki bar at Tranquility Bay. We both got out of work early one evening and thought we would head over to catch the sunset. What a great spot on the water, and also a pretty large sandy beach area! The drinks are a little pricey, but poured well. The staff is friendly and attentive even with a full bar. It was definitely a great evening of music, drinks and a beautiful sunset. We will be going back again soon!

“Terrible prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is part of the Tranquility Bay Resort, which we were staying at. I would have stopped there more during our week long stay, but each drink is $10+ and an 18% gratuity is automatically added to every purchase. It's cost me nearly $40 to order 1 round for 3 people.

The sunset view is stunning, but there's no reason you have to buy something at the bar to enjoy it. There are chairs all up and down the shore owned by the resort.

On the plus side, the bartenders were all really friendly.

“Great bartender, great location, great everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This bar is a great place to view the sunset, and the bartender Jeff is wonderful! He shared lots of suggestions of things to do in the Keys, we tried several of them and weren't disappointed with any of them. He was very personable and made every visit enjoyable.

“Tropical drinks and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This place is a great spot to kick back and relax. The drinks were flavorful and strong. The food was quick and delicious. The sunset was AMAZING! The sunset from the tiki bar was the best that we found in Marathon. What better way to catch a sunset than to be catered to with impeccable service by Jay and Crystal. They really made things a lot easier for us. Rather than us normally running back to our kitchen and preparing our own drinks,Jay and Crystal would constantly check up on us to make sure our drinks were filled and that we had all that we needed. They helped create some great memories.
