Seems like a local spot. Sits in the water. Nothing prestigious about the service, there is none! Order at the window. Pick up at the other window. Clean up after yourself. Seafood seems fresh. We had a grouper plate and a seafood combo plate.

Hard to find, stumbled upon it actually, realized there was a restaurant out back of the commercial operation. The seafood market was perfect. Picked up two pounds of freshly caught yellow tail snapper (de-boned) and a quart of conch salad, best meal all week!

Of the main drag. Ate lunch. Got lobster roll, if from North don't bother to.much filler etc. Shrimp were fresh and excellent as we're gator bites. Most sanwiches we're good. Bonus, saw a manatee off the deck.

This is one of our favorite seafood restaurants/markets in Key Largo. Fresh shrimps and stone crab claws. Nice outdoor seating area. There are many fishes, pelicans and manatees in the marina. Perfect.
