We stopped for lunch and I had the red conch chowder and the conch fritters. They were very fresh and tasty and the waitress was very pleasant and helpful.

Don't let the size or location of this restaurant deter you. The food is great and the family atmosphere is wonderful. I stop to eat here at least twice while visiting Marathon each year.

Great fresh sea food at a fair price. Friendly owner & servers. Got an education on seafood along with a great dinner. Got a discount also since we went to the aquarium. Even if you don't visit the aquarium, definitely try this place.

Wow, very sparse restaurant but the food is incredible. Had the tsatziki mahi and it was great. Another in the party had grouper fingers and they were lightly battered and fried golden brown, not greasy. The turtle cheesecake was very good.

We stopped in only to buy a couple pounds of fresh Key West Pinks. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but the owners were very friendly and accommodating. Not a fancy place, but looked tasty. Our shrimp were great. Stop in.
