Plenty of parking. Really good menu choices. Pleasant staff and professional service. Early bird choices are great- $15.95 for soup or salad, warm loaf of bread, entree and dessert, oh and includes a decent glass of house wine. Very hard to beat!

Soggy under cooked calamari, crab stuffing with no crab, and a lobster tail that was under cooked, mushy & flavorless. House salad was ok but the baked potato was flavorless & unsalted. Service uninspired, no offer to refill drinks, no checking back after our entrees...More

After a week on Marathon for a Habitat for Humanity project we had tried nearly every seafood restaurant there was. Key Colony had delicious alternatives to the standard fare- seafood with an Italian twist. Sicilian snapper was breaded and pan fried, served with tomatoes, olives,...More

A fellow camper recommended this restaurant. I had snapper, conch chowder, fries& bread for only 12.99. It was enough for 2 people. My husband really enjoyed it. I will definitely go back if I am in marathon again.

Great food and service..Early arrival specials at $16.95 with good variety. A bartender told us about this out of the way find. Best food on our trip. Portions are generous and service really good. The menu is vast and the specials looked great.

The food was ready when we were told it would be. Seafood (grouper) was exellent and my husband enjoyed his chicken parm. We both enjoyed their conch soup. Would recommend.

My family of five just had a wonderful dinner. My Mermaid Delight was amazing, but my sons chicken and ribs stole the show. They could stand to turn down the air a little... bring a light jacket if you’re cold natured.

The menu is the same, but they do have daily and nightly specials. The carpeting was taken out and new carpet installed a few months ago, otherwise the decor is the same.

I can't remember exactly what time happy hour started at both Sparky's and Colony Beach, but I believe it was 4pm-6pm, and the shrimp and drink specials were best at Sparky's. Love it down there!
