This is a small place with tables right by the fish counter but the service is friendly and the very fresh fish is a bargain. Just see what's fresh that day and order either a sandwich or a platter. Don't forget a cup of conch chowder and a side of cole slaw.

Easy to find and visit. Consistent and fresh.
Tight seating, somewhat of a hole in the wall atmosphere but always a good place to stop in for an affordable fish sandwich, or a nice sized portion of fish and side.

One of our quick fix stops in Marathon.

The title of my review is because during the month of October, they do a German menu that is so good!! This place is right off of Overseas Highway so there is no view. There is inside & outside seating. There is also a small bar inside. They sell hand cut steaks and fresh seafood as well. I am not a big seafood fan so Octoberfest is what got me to go here. They are always busy and the service is always friendly and efficient. I wish I could say more about the regular menu, but I can only go by what the hubby says. He says its very good. Always fresh and a wide variety of options. I will probably do an updated review after we go back. But I would recommend this place to anyone. Why would it be so busy, daily, if they weren't putting out good food?
