I have been to Boondocks many times over the years. Stopped by last week for Lobsterfest and had a great Florida Lobster lunch! It made the day! Always time to stop by Boondocks Grill!

We had the Mahi and it was dry and the portion size was small. My son had fish tacos he said were good. I personally won't eat there on my next visit to the keys.

Drinks are reasonably priced (I live in Miami) and seafood was decent. Family had the tuna, swordfish, wedge salad, and kids had chicken tenders. Decided to check out since we came with our dog and place is dog friendly. Service was reasonable being that there...More

We ran in for a quick break on the way down to KW. It was Lobster fest and the lobster bisque was awesome. It's an all open type of bar/ restaurant so it's hot but worth a visit.

We went to Boondocks for the first time ever very recently. We had three adults, two teen boys and an 8 year old girl. The menu had something for everyone. The boys loved the choices of different kinds of mac and cheese (lobster mac, bacon...More

Expensive, food is below average. Went a couple times for Monday night football, they played music over the game. Irritating. Food was not good and expensive for what it was. Never went back.

We've lived in the Keys for 7 years and have had our ups and downs with Boon docks. The food is ok and $18 for a pitcher of Ugs Chug is ridiculous but still as locals we've tried to give them the benefit of the...More

We just visited the highly recommended Boondocks Grille and had the misfortune of having a dog pee on the floor at the table next to us. Why do I have to eat around other nasty people's nasty pets. Don't expect me to return.

Had a visitor in from Texas with her dog. Good food, good music, good ambiance, nice gift shop, and dogs are welcomed with their own menu. If you have a visitor in from out of town with a dog, this is the place. They will...More

Sorry, but I don't know. They have a banner outside that tells of the entertainment of the day. If you can't get by to see that banner, give them a call. Candy

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS FOR THE LARGEST TIKI BAR IN THE FLORIDA KEYS Boondocks opened their doors over 25 years ago as a small ice cream shop. The current kitchen was the entire building. Quickly realizing Ramrod Key was in need of more than just ice cream the original owners expanded the menu to include sandwiches, and later added beer and wine to the mix. It wasn't until 2001 that the real transformation began to take place. Lanny was first to arrive in the Florida Keys and scope out Boondocks. Seeing past the overgrown trees and broken tables he immediately called this father, Larry and long time friend and colleague, John to hop the next flight down and check out their new home. With Lanny's vision, John's restaurant expertise and Larry's backbreaking work ethic, Boondocks Grille and Draft House and Miniature Golf has become one of the most popular destinations on the overseas highway.
