The crew from our dive shop recommended Burdines as a place with a great cheeseburger. After a morning of diving and snorkeling, cheeseburgers just hit the spot. The restaurant is on the ocean side along a canal at a working marina. Unfortunately you have to drive through a run-down trailer park to get there. The food was very good, and there was a lot of it. We had bacon cheeseburgers with green chilis on top, and I will have to try that at home! Very yummy! They aren't kidding that one basket of fries is plenty for a table of 4. Service was a bit spotty though. We had 8 people at 2 tables on the outside balcony, and one table was finished with their meal before we even got our food.

Visit for the drinks...not necessarily the food. Ordered the fish sandwich...it came out from the kitchen to quick to have been freshly grilled and they put coleslaw on the sandwich which made a bad sandwich worse.

I hate to even mention this great little waterfront restaurant hidden away in Marathon... sometimes us locals like to keep secrets so we can eat without a wait for a table! Burdines has great hamburgers cooked just perfectly. The rest of the menu is great too, but we always have a hamburger since they are so good. An order fries is enough for four, but my husband and I manage to eat every last one between the two of us... they are so good. The restaurant is outdoors - elevated so you have lovely views of the water and the boats coming in and out of Boot Key Harbour. Restaurant isn't easy to find - turn toward the ocean on 15th street - about a mile or so north of the famous 7 Mile Bridge. Twist your way to Burdines near the end of the street... passed all the little old mobile homes. You'll be glad you tried it!

We had lunch and everyone ordered something different from cheeseburgers to fried shrimp and it was all very good! The basket of french fries are huge & sprinkled in the secret dust! While waiting for our lunch, we occupied our time playing shut the box and enjoying the view of Boot Key Harbor. Our table was located in the shade and the warm summer breeze was blowing! I have also placed orders to go & the food is always good!

Food was excellent and at very reasonable prices. This is not a tourist location, locals know this joint and was recommended to us by a local. I had the Mahi Mahi w/ black beans and rice, this was an excellent, healthy choice. Definately try the deep fried key lime pie!
