Had a nice dinner on last Thursday evening. I had a hogfish filet and my wife had the tuna tower, we also had the stuffed mushrooms. .. food was good, ambiance nice, listened to a nice acustic guitar player. Fair wine list, nothing special. We enjoyed the place.

Our teenage Granddaughter suggested this spot in the Keys for great, fresh fish. She and I had the mahi mahi and my husband had the grouper. All three meals were delicious. Presentation was beautiful. We hope to go back before we leave and try another fish plate. They have many to choose from.

My son and decided to drive along the Keys and fish along the way. We left Ft Myers and headed south. By the evening we were ready for a good dinner. My son looked on Trip Advisor for some good restaurants near our location and discovered Boondocks so we decided to give it a try. We arrived around 7 pm.... More

Went for Mother's brunch. The food was excellent, I had the prime rib, lamb, poached salmon, shrimp and scallops salad. Wonderful atmosphere and great staff. I wish they would have that brunch more often. Great price!

We visited a couple of weeks ago, with a party of 8 for my nephews birthday. Our intention was to eat dinner and then play mini golf next door. We learned we would have to start the mini golf by 9pm in order to play and it was 8:10. And we had 4 kids-we could not wait to eat dinner... More

The service we received was amazing but the menu was very expensive for average food. The french fries and chips were good but our burgers were just so/so. The restaurant itself is cute and airy. We asked about playing mini golf but when we heard it was over $11 per person we decided to pass.

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.
