We had 8:30pm reservations. We arrived early but got seated at 8:10pm without any problem. We sat at an outdoor covered hightop, overlooking the pool. There was a live duo singing, but they competed with a wedding’s music just down the dock. No big deal. Weather was beautiful. Our server Dan took great care of us, even though he kept getting other tables assigned to him in his section. Would definitely go back, even if not staying at Hyatt Place!

Das Essen ist wohlschmeckend und frisch.
Leider herscht in dem Lokal eine unglaubliche Geräuschkulisse. Es handelt sich um einen sehr großen Rsum, in diesem befindet sich auf der einen Seite die Bar mit diversen Fernsehern, auf der anderen der Essensbereich. Durch die Unterhaltung der Gäste ist es bereits sehr laut, weil geräuschdämmende Maßnahmen fehlen. Die gesamte Szenerie wird noch von einem musikalischen Alleinunterhalter begleitet, leider auch überlaut. Dieser wiederum wird von den sich unterhaltenden Gästen übertönt, weil anders keine Unterhaltung möglich ist.
Für ein entspanntes Abendessen zu Zweit ist das Lokal eher nicht geeignet.

The food was delicious and our waitress was very kind. The view is gorgeous and Rusty that was singing was great. It was very loud on the patio so I would suggest if you don’t like noise to eat inside. My only complaint would be that the service was slow but the place was packed so a little more attentive and faster service and it would have been perfect.

In Marathon for spring break, so restaurants are busy and servers are running all over the place. So far this has been my favorite restaurant. The Lighthouse Grill has very nice air conditioned inside seating and outside seating with beautiful views. The live music outside was very good. Not too obtrusive. The food was very very good. I had the scallops!! EXCELLENT!! Highly recommend. Appetizers were great. The desserts were AMAZING!! All home made. Bread pudding, key lime pie and creme brûlée were outstanding. Must try!! Will go back for sure!

Would have given 5 stars except for, we made our reservations for outside, and the hostess said that open table doesn't reserve inside or outside. We have been here several times and love the outdoor seating. Inside is a bit noisy, but everything else was excellent.

Great food! Best in Marathon. Good value if you go before 6pm, as entrees are $19. The grilled yellowfin tuna was melt in your mouth, and the seafood Diavolo was full of flavor with shrimp and scallops! Our service was excellent! Jennifer was the best! Very rare in the Keys.

Black grouper is not on the menu often, but when it is I highly recommend you consider it. The lamb chops and filet are always done to perfection and you can’t beat the scenery. A favorite dining spot of ours for sure. Chris is an outstanding server as well!

Good food and service. The decor felt like a hotel restaurant. No tablecloths and nothing to soften the noise level. We would have liked to have been seated outside. We had reservations and were paying full price. For some reason they were seating everyone inside and saying ”those outside tables are reserved”. We were there long enough to see that they were Not reserved. It made me feel like a fool for not going during happy hour and getting the reduced prices. That is who was seated outside with the music.

We usually are very happy with the service and the food...Not this time! Their signature dish is Prime Rib. When this was delivered to the table it appear much
Thinner than normal and was about 30% fat. The meat was stringy and lacked taste. Normally I would have sent it back but I was in a group of friends snd decide to
Grin and bear it.

It appears, based on the above, the restaurant is compromising its past quality for profits. That piece of meat should never have left the kitchen. TOO BAD!

Great location over looking the water, the 50% off early bird before 6 PM WAS A GREAT DEAL. My wife’s filet was great, my prime rib was very fatty and tuff to eat. I couldn’t complain cause after the server took our order we did see him. Anyway yes I would go back but wouldn’t order thr primerib.

A favorite in the area. The "early bird special" is outstanding. I ordered the strip steak (which I have had before and is especially good) arrived more medium than medium rare. The waiter immediately returned it and came back shortly with a perfectly cooked one. The manager checked by as well. We retreated to the pool area after for music, and yes, dancing! A lovely evening

As hotel restaurants go, the food here is up to par. But the view is fabulous. Prices seem high, but we did the early bird, so that made them reasonable. If you want authentic Keys, don't come here, but if you want to great view, it's a winner.

I wasn’t that impressed with the food. I ordered prime rib and I would consider it just ok. The horseradish sauce could have used some flavor as well.
My husband ordered filet mignon, medium rare and it arrived WELL done! He tried to eat it but gave up as it was too tough to chew. Eventually he sent it back, it was either that or not eat dinner. This of course left us each to eat our dinners separately, either that or let mine get cold while we waited for his.
I expected better for a Hyatt restaurant. Granted, I was here during “happy hour / early bird” special pricing, if you can consider that an excuse.
I would try this restaurant again as I have heard others say the food is great. Until I have a decent meal here however I really can’t recommend anyone else to try it.

We went between 5 and 6 for the early bird special. Most entrees are max 19.95. We had the prime rib captains cut and the Scallops over risotto. Both entrées were absolutely outstanding. Also well drinks during early bird are only four dollars. It was a great value great food and great service. We’ve already made reservations to go back. Highly recommend!
