    We had a very bad experience. It was to be our Thanksgiving dinner.We had reservations weeks in advance. They ran out of food and what they did serve was cold. The prime rib portions were slivers to stretch the servings. Was told they had recent employment issues. The manager made excuse one after another. They would have been better off to have notified customers to make other plans and save face. We will not go back.

    We waited 30 minutes after we were seated to have a waiter come over. They seemed to be having some difficulty in who was taking care of our table. They did comp us our appetizers which was nice and were very apologetic about keeping us waiting. The food was good. They ran out of grouper which was disappointing but the replacement meal was still good. The waiter was very nice and attentive during the meal after they started serving us.

    My drink was very watered down and it was $12. My son's French fries were not cooked properly. Limp and soggy . His burger was excellent, my tuna was good, the key lime pie was not that great. Should use a good basic recipe instead of attempting an unusual flavor.

    Simon was our waiter and he was very friendly and efficient. He let us take our time and had perfect timing on refills and the check. The view of the water and boats was really pretty. The live singer was not great and I think just soft music would have been more enjoyable. Overall the food was good and the pricing seemed to be the best we’ve found in the Keys so far. Thanks Simon!

    Several of our friends surprised my wife for her birthday at Lighthouse Grill as this is one of our favorites in Marathon, FL. And surprised she was! On top of that everyone's meals were delicious although I must say the swordfish stole the show. Wonderful prep and everyone's meals came out timely and hot. Nice touch by Lighthouse Gill bringing a happy birthday key lime pie with 6 forks. A memorable evening. Oh, and Jen was an excellent server. Thanks to everyone! We will be back!

    I got the tile fish recommended by the waitress called Jen and when it came I thought she had brought me a child’s portion, I’m not greedy but for $38 I expected a little more fish than the amount I was served, there is more fish in a can of sardines than what I was served, also my wife ordered the salmon and it came raw uncooked inside, they took it away to replace the salmon and by the time it came back I had finished my small meal, so all in all a really unpleasant experience was had. I’m sorry to say I will not recommend this restaurant

    Fabulous drinks, great food and view, first class service. We tried the chicken lollipops, queso blanco, plantains, the tuna salad, grilled chicken, chicken burgers and a Caesar salad. The island lager was delicious but not as good as the lime basil martinis - they were so good I had 3 of them! We loved all of it.

    the food was standard if we were talking about a bad restaurant, but the cost and the place where it is located should be of better quality. They didn't have something as simple as sparkling water. the attention was quite good. but the quality of the food very poor. everything is reheated nothing is done at the moment. I do not recommend it 2 stars is more than enough.

    We've been there several times before but this was the worse service we have received, after half an hour waiting on drinks and appetizers, it took an hour just to get our order in. The server never returned to our table. Management had to take over . It is really a shame because the food is always on point!

    This was a tough one. The location is great. The waiter tried his hardest. But it was just one of those night. We called in advance and reserved in advance. We called to confirm some special things (drinks, desserts, birthday celebration). After two phone calls they dropped the ball on all of it. Which was pretty frustrating.

    This is our fourth time visiting after 24 years of vacationing in Marathon. We’ve enjoyed the atmosphere, music nights, bar drinks and food. Tonight we had the pleasure of being served by Simon who without a doubt delivered one of the best services we’ve had. We are usually accompanied by family and friends and this year we decided to do it alone as we’re officially Empty Nesters now. We are looking forward to next year as we dock at Faro Blanco for a few days before checking into our weekly rental. The Canals Family

    Highly disappointed in my choice of restaurant. We are vacationing in Marathon and decided to have a meal off-resort for my sister's birthday. At 7pm on a Sunday night the place was practically deserted. The waiter was friendly and chatty but the overall service and food were lacking. I'm afraid I cannot recommend and will never return. 😔

    There wasn't much of a selection of entrees. We ordered a pitcher of white sangria and in all honesty it was like a cheap white wine (didn't taste good at all). We shared a meal and they offered to divide it in kitchen for us and by the time it got to our table it was the size of a small appetizer. Needs less to say the plate was 40.00
