Food was just average here. Service was awful and rushed. Couldn't wait to take our plates and get us out of the booth

The breakfast surprised us. from the outside, It looks like it would be a tourist trap, serving small portions for a lot of money. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, and the portions were quite large. We would definitely eat here again.

Mangrove Mike's is another Islmamorada treasure! The wait staff are friendly and the restaurant is hopping. Food is Awesome!!! A must do on your way up from Key West or on your way down! Visit the Lobster Trap Art store (attached) and pick up a great work of art from local artists. :)

Went for breakfast twice while staying at The Islander across the street. Our breakfast was always out quickly, the coffee was always topped off and the prices are reasonable.

We actually ate at Mangrove Mike's twice, both times for breakfast. It was very good. Large portions, eggs cooked perfectly, can not complain about anything. Would definitely recommend this being your breakfast spot while in Islamorada. With such a varied menu I could have eaten there every morning and had something different and delicious every time.

Mike was in full control the morning we were there. He was directing traffic to keep the line moving as good as it can be done. The food is good, the price is right for the quantity. Service is attentive (trust me if it's not Mike will fix it!) The one negative was the place stunk of burnt toast the... More

This place is fun, friendly, popular but quick, great food, huge portions too! Thoroughly enjoyed our first time here. The omelette with spinach, tomatoes and feta was excellent! Lots of flavor and lots of food. We live in little torch and rode our Harley up for breakfast. Nice ride and found a new favorite breakfast spot! That's a good day!
