I lived in Key Largo for 12 years and the Hill family is one wonderful group through and through. If they do it, it's done right. Always enjoyed buying my fish there whether cooking at home, in my restaurant around the corner, or eating in their quaint spot on the water there in the yacht basin. I used to send... More

While on our way to Key West we decided to give this place a try for lunch. It's a casual, outdoor seating place with a large seafood menu. Lunch was good and the location was wonderful. We sat by the marina and watched the pelicans as we ate.

This place was just what we needed. Shade, fresh food and beers! A great little place off the main drag that has amazingly fresh fare at great prices. We had the Grouper, a half pound of shrimp and the Coconut Shrimp Salad, none of which disappointed! I feel like you can't really make a bad decision here.

Great relaxing spot for a laid back lunch. The fish is really fresh. Had a Mahi-Mahi taco and my husband a Mahi sandwich with fried clams for appetizer. Go there for lunch every time we go down to Key Largo.

For a casual delicious meal, this is a must go to place. You order off a large menu on a wall at a window outside. Then you sit outdoors. There is no indoor seating and no wait staff. The food is fantastic. I usually just get a fish basket, but my friend ordered the grilled grouper platter with veggies and... More

Good seafood, not fantastic, but good with a reasonable price. Order at window, pick up food and sit down anywhere to eat, nice views, right at a marina, relaxing atmosphere, sometimes live music

LOVE coming here! Either by water or land. I get takeout at least once a week from here also! Tony and Cassandra at the front window are AMAZING! They always give recommendations and are super friendly and accommodating with my special requests! Love the tacos, the scallops are so flavorful and juicy and the fish is always fresh!

We watched one of the boats come in to the pier at the restaurant's side and saw some of the employees come to greet them and check out the catch. Had the lobster BLT they are famous for. Good sandwich but the lobster gets lost in the other ingredients. Had grouper, veg & rice. EXCELLENT and large portions of everything.... More

If they have fried oyster available get some. You might have to stand in line for a while at this place, but you won't be served some of the less than fresh fish you find on this Island and south of here. BTW, all of the seafood is better than anywhere else on the island, and cheaper.
