The mini golf is fabulous. What a fun (and somewhat challenging course!) The restaurant has a fun vibe -- the food is fine but the service and setting make it worth your while. Our entrees were good enough; my spinach salad was bland but the addition of the blackened fish (I think it was grouper?) was amazing. The fried club... More

The food was good, the staff was helpful and there was music! Nice evening! Our friend had a chipotle bean burger that he raved about... his wife had a nice soup; the hubby had a burger and I stuck to the appetizers and we enjoyed our choices! I had the bang bang shrimp! It was super!

Staying at nearby Parmers resort and read / heard this restaurant was a good choice. It clearly met/exceeded my expectations. Live duet was playing and they were excellent, not too loud, and covered "Willin'" by Little Feat ! We sat at a breezy / elevated table... had a very pleasant and excellent waitress. Service was quick, Specialty drink menu was... More

Stopped on a whim as we were traveling back to Key West. Once we stepped in and heard some good tunage and smelled some good food, we knew we had hit a good spot! The decor was fun and the massive amounts of TV's was mind bending. If you like fried, finger foods - this is your place. A tad... More

I'll start with the positives, mini golf was a blast, and the chef knows what he/she is doing. The vibe seems fun, and the night we went they had two charity events happening. This still is not the reason for my low review..... We showed up the hostess seemed stressed, which, we could understand why. Not a big deal. Our... More

My husband and I stopped at Boondocks while on the way to Key West. We enjoyed a refreshing beer while playing a competitive round of mini golf in the Florida sunshine. My defeat was followed by the tastiest lunch. (Black Bean Burger and Fish Tacos) Our server, Casto, was very personable, attentive and outgoing. MJ in the gift shop was... More

We hit the 18 hole mini-golf course before heading next door for some amazing food. The swordfish was great. You can't go wrong with any of the good. There was even live music the night we stopped. Great for Families and couples.

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.
