“Nice place. Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Marathon Grill has a very good menu and specials. Very reasonably priced. I would have given 5 stars, however, service is typically slow. They have happy hour, early bird special from 4-6 (BOGO free), and 25 cent wing night on Thursdays starting at 6.

“Great place for food, fun and sports”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We are part time residents of the keys. I was delighted to see the Marathon Grill open up since our last stay. The food was great. I enjoyed the scallops and lobster dip. They have a huge selection of beers and plenty of flat screen TVs showing all kinds of sporting events going on. They also offer entertainment. Other than going to Key West, they are the only place you can eat until 2am.

“Learning Quickly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

This is still a new restaurant, trying to work out the kinks. We had hamburgers and beers recently. The food was mediocre, a hamburger that you can have just about anywhere much better. It's a noise place so be prepared. As a Marathon resident we wish them well and hope that they make it. We need them in town. We will continue to visit this restaurant, giving them constructive feedback so that they only get better every day.

“Great Food & Drinks@Greater Prices&Greatest Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Can't beat happy hour prices. Bartender Erin is a pleasant pro. Interesting salads and well prepared meals. Will accommodate special diets (gluten free) and not act put out about it. I am personally not a sports bar or beer kind of person but even without a view this place is too good to pass up. Unlike many other restaurants this place is geared to locals as well as tourists and you will get your moneys worth. If you are tired of feeling like the bars & restaurants are taking advantage of you, Try it, you'll like it.
