The menu was promising, but this ended up being a really bad dinner. I ordered the special Spanish rice with lobster, and it was completely tasteless. If I didn't know it was lobster, I probably wouldn't have been able to tell it was seafood. I left pretty much the whole thing. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing, because other reviews... More

We had a very good meal at King Seafood. One of us had blackened hogfish, another had the steak sandwich. Both delicious. The sides were good as well. Service was friendly and prompt. This is not a full-service restaurant, you order at the counter and they bring it to you when it's ready.

Out of all the restaurants we tried in marathon, including the nicer ones, kings had the BEST seafood. Especially the fresh stone crabs. Definitely don't miss out on this hidden gem!

We stopped in for luch on a busy Sunday afternoon & were amazed by the service and fresh seafood. We came back later in the week and bought some Jumbo Shrimp to grill at home. Everything was fresh and wonderful.

We eat here and buy seafood here every year while on vacation. It just gets better and better. Always a great selection of fresh seafood and the restaurant is fantastic. All that, plus friendly owners and staff, and every visit is a delight.

Not a fancy restaurant, wear shorts and flip flops! Place your order at the counter and they will bring you your food, serve your own drinks. It was busy the night we went. The stone crab claws were good, the crab cake sandwich was fried. The seafood soup is great!

Went here on a whim for dinner one night. The seafood pasta and fried shrimp were marvelous and the atmosphere was laid back and casual. They were reasonably priced and there was no wait for dinner. I would go back here again. If I lived on Marathon, I would be a regular!

I highly recommend this place as the seafood we purchased was very delicious and ultra fresh. We grilled the shrimp and lobster under the broiler once we were home and it came out so good we had wished we had more. Next trip we will visit King and then ship the fresh seafood home through the UPS Store next to... More

Ok so I was a little nervous pulling up to this place. I think we were the only car in the parking lot & it looked a little dark inside. Well well well, I went with my gut from reading all the good reviews & was NOT disappointed. Possibly the best seafood we had while in the keys. We ordered... More
