This is a great informal eatery on the docks next to the small fishing and recreational boats. The food isn't the healthiest but it's served quickly and the fish is fresh. The marina faces northwest so catch the sunset as you dine on a Keys meal.

If you want great local seafood at great prices, come here. The lobster rueben was amazing. Tried the stone crab and keys shrimp and was also great. You would pay double going to a really nice restaurant. The place is on the water, so come for the sunset. There is no wait staff so you have to order and they call you to pick it up. All of the tables are outside, so dress accordingly. All in all it was clean and friendly with great food! If you have kids that need high chairs, they have them too!

Stopped on the way from Key West to Miami, we had their famous Lobster Reuben sandwich and the Crab Cakes. Sandwich was tasty and very large, Crab Cakes where very good and had a nice sauce. Add a lovely deck above the water and its a very enjoyable stop!

For many years we owned a timeshare at Knight's Key in Key Marathon.
The Keys Fisheries was always our favorite place to eat. Not fancy, you eat at outdoor picnic tables right on the water overlooking the gulf with spectacular sunsets. The food was always the freshest being caught daily. I enjoy the Ruben lobster roll. A Florida Lobster tail served on a hogie roll with sauerkraut, melted cheese and thousand island dressing. I believe this is the only restaurant that has one. One of my other favorite dishes is the fresh yellow tail snapper served in a wiskey cream sauce (yummy). You serve yourself tea and soft drinks from the drink bar or you can get a bottle of beer or margarita from the regular outdoor bar. The kids always like to throw some saltine crackers in the water and watch the fish from under the dock go crazy. Sometimes you can even see large tarpon swin=mming around the dock.

if you go there I promise you two things. One you will know you are in Florida and two, you will have the best seafood dinner you have ever eaten for the money.

It's a friendly fun place to get down and dirty with your seafood! Gr8 sunset watching too. They have seating in several locations. The bar/eating spot with the best sunset view is set high on stilts(piers) with lots of steps to get to it...we did notice a small outdoor elevator (on the side near the parking lot) that makes it accessible for everyone. Rock crabs (when in season) are priced right and plentiful, oysters on the half shell are as well... and the FRESH LOCAL tuna sashimi is simply AMAZING. Our friends ordered from the raw bar while I went downstairs and found a fresh sushi bar around the corner from the cooked food order window. While this was super busy the sushi bar wasn't. I had a fresh boat of the most amazing sushi, sashimi for $29.50...it was huge! I ordered the #1 Boat and then made substitutions, which they allowed me to do. So all my sashimi was tuna, and my sushi was exactly what I wanted. The salmon didn't look very fresh to me, which was disappointing and concerning, so I did not try it.... but the TUNA, just have the tuna! Everyone is friendly and the atmosphere is casual and fun. The 2 nights we went, they had a guitar player/singer who was partly the reason we went back a 2nd night... the rock crabs, oysters, and tuna was the other reason. Not a bad table in the house... all outdoor patio style dining. When sunset rolls around, the bartender passes out an ounce of fruit punch w a kick... and makes a toast to the sunset. It's a lot of fun.
