“Not sure what all the excitement is about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Tried this place based on internet reviews. Walked in on a Saturday night at 7 pm to find it completely empty, which is never a good thing. Resisted the urge to leave and sat down to see what the reviews were all about. Had the whole fried snapper which was okay. There wasn't a lot of meat on the fish and absolutely no seasoning so was fairly bland. The plantains as a side were good though. Also had the grilled mahi sandwich, which had a generous portion of fish that was again completely bland. Added some tartar sauce to give it flavor, but was later stymied by the poor quality bread that collapsed from the weight of the fish. The meal wasn't expensive but it wasn't that good either, so I'm not sure that makes it much of a deal.

The cuban sandwich was great as was the fish dinner and other plates. Great flavors and we all enjoyed our food.

“Great fish sandwiches and fries!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Are here tonight with my husband. He had a grilled mahi mahi sandwich and I had blackened grouper (hog snapper was sold out). Both were fresh and well prepared. We split fries which a single order is good for two. Very hot and crispy. Friendly service, low key atmosphere and a great meal.

“THE BEST SEAFOOD MARKET IN MARATHON”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

King Seafood, is the absolutely best seafood market in Marathon! I live down here in the Florida Keys and have tried every seafood market, King Seafood is a must. The high quality and freshness is everything that one needs or wants. I love the fact that they also have a restaurant. The seafood soup is on point I get it every time I pass through Marathon. King Seafood knows what they are doing and they are doing it right!
