Amazing fresh seafood and reasonably priced. Came for an early dinner. Order what you want at the window, grab a table wherever you like and then pick up when ready. Eat and enjoy the Marina view and the best seafood around. You won't be disappointed. 1lb of large Stone Crabs for about 20.00 and it was fresh and delicious....nuff said!

Best fresh seafood in the Upper Keys. We come here often as locals and have never had a bad meal. The lobster BLT on a croissant is to die for!

Very tasty food and great view on the patio. Glad to have found this restaurant on our way back from Marathon Key. The red snapper was excellent as was the mixed green bean and carrot stir-fry vegetable alternative to potatoes. Salads were crisp and fresh. It's a bit off the beaten path but well worth the extra effort to get... More

The food was tasty and the place has a good "locals" feel to it. It is tucked away in the back. Get to sit and watch local fisherman clean their catch and feed begging pelicans.

I doubt that seafood gets any fresher, since the boats pull up to the back door and unload their catches! It's a fun, outdoor atmosphere with great seafood. It's extremely casual waterfront dining, with a walk-up window, paper and plastic ware and dock-side dining. The new covered outdoor area will be great for the rainy season. Sometimes there's a live... More

We're locals and decided to go out of our our waterfront lunch norm and try this place out. We had the shrimp tacos and triggerfish basket and I thought it was excellent. The atmosphere was great too. The only thing that really put a damper on the day was we wanted to have stone crabs; so we went to the... More

Awesome! This place was recommended by a local and it lived up to and beyond expectations. We were told this is where the little Cala buy their fresh seafood. It's half market and half marina-view dining. Rustic and clean. You order at the window and seat yourself. Prices were reasonable (cheaper than the other restaurants) and just as good. We... More

My wife and I I stopped in and we were not dissapointed. I had the shrimp tacos and they were some of the best I have ever eaten. My wife had the Hogfish and raved about it. You would be hard pressed to find fresher fish as it is also a fish market. The atmosphere is simply being a tent... More

We also provide free tours!!! Call ahead to schedule your free tour of a local, working fishery. We are a family owned and operated business that has been in business since 1972.
