We arrived in Marathon late afternoon. The hotel recommended two restaurants, we drove by both. Their sign says they serve 36 craft beer, so that caught my attention and the decision was made. Enjoyed a delicious fish and chips dinner at this very laid back...More

Lots of local, relaxed laid back atmosphere, excellent service, food was good. Had clam chowder and mussels and pretzel and beer cheese, all were yummy. Lots of craft beers to choose from but no liquor or domestic

Stopped in for lunch on the way from Miami to Key West but didn't realise that they only do the breakfast menu on Sundays. Never the less, we had a pretty good crabcake eggs benedict and corned beef hash. I particularly liked the basket of...More

We had seen Herbie's from the street, but never thought to try it until we checked out the reviews. When we saw that they had tons of craft beers we were sold. Don't let the inside fool you - the food was really good, with...More

Like many restaurants in the Marathon area, this one has a "bar and grill" atmosphere with really good food. From what I gathered much of their menu is made on site (i.e. hamburger ground on site, etc.). All of the food our party ordered was...More

Stopped here twice for lunch while on spring break with family and friends. Enjoyed conch chowder, mahi wrap, and crabby patty. Especially the crabby patty was awesome, not to mention a truly impressive selection of craft beers from around the country. Food seemed very fresh...More

We were so glad we checked reviews on Trip Advisor because we could have easily driven by. From the outside we weren't sure what we were going to get when we went inside. But once we walked in the door, we were greeted by a...More

Hi! We offer a chicken and smashed potato on our menu. While somewhat similar to Nashville style given the marinating in our own buffalo sauce and buttermilk, it is not as hot as it's Nashville cousin. The other sinful... More

Yes we do! While our main room appears more like a bar setting, we are exceptionally kid friendly here.

Herbies is the oldest operating restaurant in the Heart of the Florida Keys! Having been established in the late 1940's under the name Maggie's Chowder House, it has become a landmark restaurant and continued local favorite. While the restaurant is well established, the only thing old school about the menu is the fact that everything is prepared from scratch here, and that includes grinding our own grass fed beef, conch, sausage, and hot dogs (when available). And, our beer selection is unmatched from Miami to Key West. All on tap craft beer. No, you will not find a National branded beer here, but you will find true American fresh craft beer along with some exceptionally fine wines all poured by the glass. So, don't let the Florida road side shack appearance fool you! Come on in and enjoy some of the best food in the Heart of the Keys!
