you order at counter and then go back to pick up food...there was nine in our group and by the time the last few got their food the first few were done...service is slow...outside seating is a picnic bench on the main road...had been told it was the best seafood...the grouper we cooked at the resort the night before was way better

Ate here in May 2013. The food was GREAT! Never had conch fritters... I have a new love. i also had a cuban sandwich.. very tasty. My husband had the fish tacos and he loved them. I tasted the grilled fish in the tacos and I'll say it was so fresh & moist - cooked perfect. I took an order of the plantains to go & had them later... so yummy. If going or coming from Key West Please do yourself a favor & EAT HERE!!!!

This place was recommended by a local we meet when staying in Marathon. Not a 5 star restaurant but the food was good at resonable price. No table service. You order at the desk and collect when your number is called. We had lobster with yellow rice and a local fish dish that was very good. Parking may be a problem if its busy. Overall a good choice for a tasty lunch
