“FRESH OFF THE BOAT SEAFOOD”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

My husband and I went to Key West the end of September and drove to Marathon. We happened upon this place and were pleasantly surprised. Everything is fresh off the boat. Having never tried Hogfish Snapper, we ordered the sandwich and the platter. I got the platter blackened with yellow rice and plantains; my husband ordered the sandwich. It really was amazing and the flavors were spot on. The staff were very nice and the atmosphere is very basic, but clean. Try the cilantro mayonaisse....it's very good. A lot of food and great prices. Can't beat it! Marguerite G.

“Maybe we caught them on an off day?”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

I've heard great things about King Seafood but I was not pleased with my experience. I am hoping we just caught them on an off day! It took an extremely long time for our number to be "called" and when the food arrived it was cold. The lobster bisque was thick and glumpy- so much so that I thought maybe there were refried beans in it. Again, I hope our experience was a rare one but I don't think we'll be back.

“Great food; Reasonable Price”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

My husband and I went to King's Seafood at the recommendation of a guy I met diving. I wanted to try the Hogfish Snapper, and my husband was hungry for lobster. Well, it was excellent! Spoiler: split the order of fries! Huge order!

“Authentic Flan”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stopped here for the flan which was authentic. Wonderfully creamy texture, just right! A great dessert.
Fish looked fresh and the restaurant was clean. We will be back.

“Not bad, not great either.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Little restaurant and fresh fish market. When you walk in its a little fishy smelling. You order then they call your number and pick up your food. Everything was fresh made and tasted fine just nothing WOW. Probably won't go back but don't regret going.
