“Loved it!”
Reviewed March 16, 2008

4 of us ate here twice during a week in Marathon...

Food was great both times and staff was attentive and resonably quick (they were packed!). Seating is basically outside (they do have cutains they can drop when cooler or windy) under a giant Tiki Hut right on the water (bayside). If winds are out of the north or west, it can be a bit cool at the tables.

Parking is atrocious though... and tricky. They definitely need a bigger lot.

“Bad Burger and Mahi”
Reviewed March 14, 2008

Overcrowded with drunken spring breakers. It was hard to get a table at 2PM, we just wanted to eat but had to wait to accommodate the drunk kids. This is out of control of the management but the food quality was in their control. My wife had a funky burger and I had a mahi sandwich that was almost all "dark meat", need we say more? No need for oat bran the next morning! Stay away from here until they adopt some quality control practices and better food storage techniques.

“Fun atmosphere & great variety on menu”
Reviewed March 12, 2008

We visited this restaurant twice on our trip to the Keys (there and back). The atmosphere is fun and lively and there are a lot of items on the menu to satisy all levels of appetite. We did wait quite awhile on Friday night for our drinks in the waiting area but when they came they were very good. I had the Pain in the #@! which I think was a cross between a Pina Colada and a Rum Runner...either way it was tropical, frozen and fruity! The Key West shrimp were yummy as was the regular Key Lime Pie. I will have to come back for the deep fried version. The gift shop also has some colorful t-shirts for a souvenier. It was cloudy both nights we were there so I cannot comment on the sunset.

“A good sunset view in season”
Reviewed January 23, 2008

When we visited in December, the sun set out of sight, but most of the year, the view is excellent. We had baked oysters and whole fresh scallops, which are very good. This is a good place to come with a group, it's casual and lively.
