We went to this restaurant twice last year and returned 3 times last week. Fish is so fresh and delicious. We had the blackend mahimahi, grouper, coconut shrimp and fish tacos on cinco de mayo. Coleslaw, new potatoes and potato salad all great. We also bought fresh mahimahi to cook at home, excellent. Our favorite reataurant in the Keys

We both had grilled dolphin and it was one of the best fish dishes we have ever eaten. The sides were also excellent. The restaurant closes at 6:30 PM so get there early. Not to be missed.

Wow, what a treat. We had blackened mahi plate. Yummy. My hubby complains about everything but not this lunch. Keep up the great food. Definitely number one in Marathon.

Excellent family run seafood spot. Excellent service - they really care and we were checked in on by a few different people, a couple of whom were clearly owners. Not much to look at (but the good places in the Keys usually aren't). Everything we had was fantastic - husband had blackened catch of the day, I had fried dolphin fish with fried green tomatoes. Coleslaw was good. Fries were OK - crispy and unseasoned but for salt. Kids had Caesar salad which had a good oil based dressing. Only suggestion: my kids had grilled cheese on gorgeous, yummy rye bread, but the cheese was processed. I'm not a fan of processed/"American" cheese and would have preferred real cheddar. We've been before, and we will definitely go back.

Yoiu don't want to miss it. Heading north on US1, just as you're leaving Marathon, on the right hand side of the road, before the Vaca Key Bridge. Get a taste of the Keys, and you can take
fresh seafood with you. Great selection of fresh fish, Key West pink shrimps (no dip) stone crabs in season, and a great selection of meats. Owners Jackie and George have been owner
operators of restaurants in the Keys for over 30 years. If you remember the Grassy Key Dairy
Bar, you know them.

Fish sandwiches aren't the only thing they do right, they do everything right, and for Keys dining,
its quality at a great price.
