The best key lime pie I have ever eaten. They even give you an instruction sheet on how to serve it. Be sure to follow the instructions and keep it very cold.

I desperately wanted this place to be great so the subject could be: "ahhMA'sing" alas I can't do it. So many locals recommended this place though that I think it must have been an off night. We got the fried fish and fish tacos - about $15 each. The server was ahhMA'sing (whew got it in after all) though!

Stopped in for drinks and pie. You know what kind of pie. Tart and sweet with perfect carmelized meringue. Can't review food since we just stopped for pie

We ate here for lunch, and WOW, what great food and reasonable prices. My wife and I both enjoyed various makes of the fish tacos and we also split some hush puppies. I don't think I could pick a favorite between the grilled and the fried fish taco. Everything they told us is made fresh, and the guacamole both proved... More

My husband and I were in search of the best key lime pie in the Keys. We found an article that rated Ma’s Fish Camp key lime pie as the second best key lime pie. We have tried a few from the list in Key West including the #1 pie, which we liked a lot. On our way back home... More

We stopped here for lunch one afternoon, after exploring the keys.The place was virtually empty with only one other table occupied and one guy sitting at the bar. I ordered the fish and chips basket and my partner got the Mahi Mahi Sandwich. The food arrived quickly and I was really disappointed. My fish was a couple of slices of... More

Compared with the lively and extrovert restaurants in this part of Islamorada, Ma's Fish Camp is very old school. The exterior is plain and rather unpreposessing and so is the interior! No sea view, no flaming torches, no stunning sunsets, no energetic tarpon - just good ingredients cooked properly. The Key Lime Pie was pronounced "good, if rather chilled" by... More

We usually eat here each stop in the keys. This time we ordered a whole Key Lime pie. Theirs is the best in the entire keys. Their fish is always good. The only reason I'm not giving five stars is that the menu, while great, needs some more dishes.

This is a wonderful small restaurant in Islamorada. My partner and I stayed i for two days at Casa Morada, but did not get the time to stop and take dinner whilst we were there. However on route back from the Key West we stopped for lunch and glad we did. The food was simply divine, a must for anyone... More

Our restaurant atmosphere is warm and friendly. Our food is prepared delightfully light, healthy and flavorful. Our seafood is grilled with lovely toppings - and if you desire fried, we fry in rice oil for good health. We do have delicious, made in house desserts including our Awarding winning traditional Key Lime Pie, German Chocolate Cake and locals favorite Hummingbird Cake. MA's also has a desirable Wine and Beer menu.
