Horrendous. Overly large portions of badly cooked food. Ingredients are not fresh. They are in the Keys, but cooking with frozen shrimp. Couldn’t be more disappointed.

we really enjoyed this dining experience. The steak was perfectly cooked, the lobster was amazing, it was melt n your mouth good. They really know how to cook. If it wasn't for a trip to Maine and tasting the lobster there this would be the best I have had.

We went on our first night in Marathon. The parking lot was packed but we had a reservation and were seated right away. There is only indoor seating. The menu is extensive and definitely has something for everyone. The crowd was a mix of locals (always a good sign) and tourists. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed surf and turf (although the steak was a bit overcooked) and scallops. The portions are generous and every entree comes with a choice of two sides. Great place if you want a solid/safe meal..

This was probably the fanciest restaurant we've been to in Marathon - it has cloth tablecloths and is indoors. Don't go if you have a problem with a crowded indoor restaurant. The food seemed pricey until we received our food and saw the gigantic portion sizes. I got the boiled seafood platter, which for $35 was a ridiculous amount of food. The crab cakes were probably the best part because they were well seasoned. The rest of the seafood had little to no seasoning which is great if you want the true flavor of your fish and don't like salty food. My husband had the stuffed snapper I think, or some other white fish, and it was really good. The kids got a burger and quesadilla and enjoyed them as well. This is a nice place for a date night or nicer family dinner.

Our server, Jess, was polite and attentive. The food was excellent—we had sautéed conch as an appetizer, my fiancé ordered the broiled seafood platter, and I had the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp—all was awesome. It was a little crowded (which we were completely fine with), and there was a sign at the host’s stand stating current FL COVID protocol in restaurants that was thoughtful. All staff on the floor were wearing masks—we felt perfectly safe. We will definitely be back!

Phenomenal service! Wait staff and kitchen second to none. Food good, but not 5 star, but certainly 4 star. But 5 star service and kitchen. The overall “value” is not great, (Eg a $15 lettuce wedge). But other prices only a bit higher than most similar competitors. But the place was packed and it felt pretty Covid and that was mentally and spiritually refreshing for me. The kitchen must be one of the best. As deep and varied menu with perfect timing of food courses and nothing sits under a heat lamp. Not one mistake the two times we went while on vacation this week. During the Xmas - New Years crush.

We LOVED this restaurant! We would go there again in a heartbeat. The staff were friendly. Our waiter, Bob, was top notch. No one’s drink at the table was empty for more than a second, if that. The coconut shrimp in the appetizer were huge. The salads and bread were tasty. Every entree my family ordered was delicious. I ordered the Moroccan seafood platter and it was one of the best dinners I’ve ever had. The creme brûlée and chocolate cake for dessert were incredible.

Was looking forward to a nice dinner, however, server was not friendly at all and did not make the experience pleasurable. Seafood was overcooked, which was disappointing. Ambience was okay, but would go elsewhere in the future.

Went here based on great reviews. Had seafood platter which was good but not exceptional. Biggest problem I had was that there seemed to be no concern about Covid and social distancing. Tables were very close together and it is all indoor dining. Made me nervous so wouldn’t go back until things get back to normal.

Very good food, but overpriced. Cowboy Ribeye and Lobster. Steak good and cooked perfectly. Lobster a little tough and chewy.
Service outstanding and very quick. If it was 2/3 the price it would be worth it.

This place was billed as "easily the nicest restaurant in Marathon." OK, maybe, but don't go expecting 4 stars. Maybe 2 or 3. The lunch menu was pretty limited and boring, the food was totally meh, people were seated too closely together, and it was expensive for what we got. I had been excited to try it, but not likely to go back.

Came into town for thanksgiving and our twins 4th birthday. This was our last night and we chose to eat here. The best choice we made all trip. Ms. Tiffany was our server and she made our dining experience more than wonderful. It was perfect. They sang happy birthday and kept the cake in the back for us. Thank you all for everything and we will most definitely be returning. See ya next year.
