“Favorite place in Keys!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Whenever we are in the Keys (we are a lot as we live in Fort Lauderdale), we always hit this spot! The atmosphere is the best, and the food and service are perfect. Right on AIA but with a great view of the bay.

“Racist restaurant”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

The food was good, so as the waitress, but hostess (probably the owner's daugther) was terrible to say at least. I'm a Japanese descendant Brazilian and my wife is also Brazilian. When we got to the restaurant, around 2pm, we asked for a sea sidetable, but she said that it wasn't available. She put us in a back table next to the kitchen. We asked the waitress if we could move to a seaside table (as we saw many of them where empty), the waitress came back and told us that the hostess said that there was a line, but both the waitress and we knew that it wasn't true because other costumers just came in and sit on those tables.
As said, the food was good so was our waitress, that apologized a lot during the meal. As we saw during that afternoon, you don't go there expecting to seat seaside unless you are a white American. I would not recommend this restaurant not even if this was the last one in The Keys.

“Relaxed atmosphere and good food.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Picked this place by coincidence.
(Marathon is deserted on sunday evening?!)

Good food for a reasonable price. Service was excellent.
After being ripped of several times in Miami this was a relief!

“Convenient and tasty”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express across the street and tired of driving. The hotel clerk recommended Island Fish Company, so we walked across the highway. It was a Friday evening and the dining room was full, so we ate in the bar. Our server was very friendly, which got us off to a good start. I had fish tacos, which were very tasty. Others in my party had fish, as well (it *is* Island Fish Company, after all), and they said the fish was excellent. We were very pleased with our experience and would go back.

“Skip the dessert but eat lots of the other stuff!!!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I just had a bunch of appetizers including oysters, shrimp cocktail, calamari, and crab cakes. All outstanding. The frozen drinks-exceptional! The desserts are a big box of just OK, but overall, I would highly recommend!
