We stopped on our way back to Miami and were delightfully surprised to have a wonderful fresh seafood lunch. The conch ceviche was fantastic and the grilled gulf shrimp were the best I have ever had. The local gals were delightful (even shared some of the recipes with me!). The coleslaw was amazing with coconut & pineapple--all very fresh flavors.... More

Came here with my fiancé who fancies himself somewhat of a Conch expert. We came here on the recommendations on Trip Advisor and boy were we pleasantly surprised. I ordered the salad that was so fresh you would swear they picked it from the garden...oh wait they did! The star fruit was from their own tree and everything is locally... More

My husband and I are just finishing lunch...absolutely fantastic! He had the hog fish sandwich - delicious! I had the grilled white shrimp on a salad with blue cheese vinaigrette...the shrimp was gelled to perfection and the salad so fresh, complete with star fruit, strawberries and perfectly ripe avocado. Cannot wait to come back. Stop for lunch, you'll be happy... More

Stopped while driving up the Keys. Based my stop on the TA reviews. Ordered the Hogfish Basket which came with with fries and a great pineapple mango cole slaw. The fish was lightly fried and had a fantastic taste. The two ladies were friendly and run a great food truck. Seating is a couple of picnic tables, some under cover.... More

These ladies prepare really great fish. The fried fish sandwich is great. Blackened fish over salad is great. Tried a sushi roll once - that too was delish. Great option for lunch for everyone. Get it fried with fries, or healthier version blackened with side salad. Salads are really good - they add strawberries! A bit expensive for a food... More

Food was excellent...had the hog fish and grouper and both were perfectly cooked. You eat outdoors on picnic tables so don't expect a fancy setting...just great food.

Perfect lunch! Wife had a salad with grilled mahi and I had the fried hogfish sandwich. Both were cooked to perfection and accompanied by tasty touches like homemade tartar sauce and mango coconut pineapple slaw. If we lived here we would be eating here every day!

A small place by the US1 that serves fresh fish full of flavor. No battered, no strong sauces that mask flavors. Just great grilled fish.
