The Ahi Tuna Salad was fantastic and so was the other fish we had. The setting right on the beach is pleasant and so was the service.

Thank Sven S

We took the kids here for a few hours and the little ones loved it. They loved not having to wear water shoes as they waded and swam. About $5 per person to hang out and $10 to rent a chair....parking is free. You can’t bring your own food or gear, but there were sunny and shady spots to set up, so no need for an umbrella. The restaurant next door had a great adult and kid beverage selection to make the afternoon complete. We didn’t stay for dinner but I bet the sunset would be amazing from that location. All in all a good family adventure...

Beautiful spot to see the sunset. Had dinner after renting a boat for the day. Live music great grilled cheese and the chips, balsamic and blue cheese were unusual and tasty. Also recommend the ALT.

The first turn off was the smell. There must be a sewage treatment facility close by or a broken sewer......something smells foul. We sat outside and the only relief from the smell at one point was the hint of weed someone was smoking somewhere close by at one point. I ordered the filet with some green beans. The steak was fine, nothing extraordinary but the beans were terrible. I asked my waitress (when I could finally find her) if they were canned beans. She claimed they were steamed, I won't argue that point but they were extremely over steamed anyway. The service was very poor. Once we ordered it was an hour before we were served. The food was served by a runner rather than our waitress and we were never visited again until the bill came with exception of my complaint on the beans where I sought her out. Living here in Islamorada, I have an opportunity to visit many of our fine restaurants. I hadn't been in Marker 88 for several years and it will be several more before I try it again.
