I took my children and grandchildren to Marathon for a relaxing vacation. We wanted a nice seafood place with a sunset. We thought we had found it. We looked forward to ending our vacation here. What a mistake! The ambience is great and there are outdoor games and a pool. The drinks were also good. Then came dinner. We waited for the waiter for over twenty minutes after being seated. The
Manager finally came over to take our drink order. I did not know at the time it would
Be the only order of mine to be received. We ordered apps and entrees. The apps came and the entrees arrived five minutes later!!!!! Except
for mine. Our waiter said he would be right back with it and the proceeded to take and input an order for a table of twelve which took another twenty minutes. Still no food. It never came. I finally walked out leaving my wife to settle the bill. The manager took my entree as well
As beverages we did not receive off the bill plus 25%. When my family reviewed the bill it was
Wrong!!!!!!!!! My daughter order a spicy tuna roll and was charged for a sushi platter. Items
And drinks that were never ordered were included. If I could give less than one star I would. Do not eat here. If you take the chance let a sober person review your bill.

We had a wonderful vacation in marathon and thought to end it with a beautiful
Sunset. What a mistake. Although
The drink were good and atmosphere pleasant on the water don’t eat here. We were seven people. We waited twenty
Minutes to order after being seated. We were not given water when we asked. They
Also forgot bring the alcoholic beverages. The place was less than half full. When we finally ordered the waiter said he would put in the apps then the entrees. The apps came out and then two minutes later the entrees arrived. Except for one. The waiter said he’d be right back with it and then proceeded to not only take an order
For a table of 12 but also put it into the computer. We still had no water and beverages and missing the entree!! Finally our diner missing the entree walked out. We asked for the manager and she removed the entree and discounted our bill 25%. This would have been sufficient but still a poor rating but wait there’s more. Our bill was completely off. Drink we never ordered food we never ordered pricing wrong. It took three tries to fix and as I write this I’m not sure if it’s done yet. The charged us 24.00 for 6.00 with
Of sushi!!! The food we got was plain and missing the sauces on the menu. Be forewarned.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Key West. The setting is great and there is even a pool if you want to take a quick swim. Prices were consistent with other restaurants in the area. Service was friendly. Food was good. In particular I really enjoyed my seared tuna salad. Large selection of tropical drinks

Arrived for dinner around 7:30pm. Bar was full and took awhile to get drinks. (Bartender got into a little tif with an obnoxious customer who was bellowing for service, but handled it well. Could tell he was overworked by just himself).

Table call about 20 minutes after that. Was seated at a poolside table near the seawall fence and as it was windy and wave were breaking, the sea started lapping up over the seawall and the mist started to cover the seating area. So we suggested to the hostess that we should move. She wasn't quite sure why so we moved ourselves to a table further away from the seawall. (Eventually, they closed the outdoor bar which was flooding from the tides coming up over the seawall).

Food was just okay. I'm surmost go for the view. Our server was a bit distracted - noticed our beer bottles from the bar, said we couldn't have them at tableside by the pool (fully understand), poured our beers into plastic cups then left the bottles on the table for a good 30 minutes before he realized and came back to collect them.

Service was 'leisurely' (which again is okay, we're on vacation in the Keys). Server was nice and polite even if somewhat forgetful about orders.

So we realized too late that in late-March, the sunset is blocked by the 7 mile bridge! The bridge (and old bridge) were west of the restaurant, so at this time of year, the best view is on the west side of the bridge, not the east side (where this place is located).

We would try here again because it feels like a good vibe, may have just caught them on an off night, and the sunset view was disappointing.
