Service , food , atmosphere excellent! Thank you . I do recommend your place to my friends!
Great fish, served hot. We really enjoy eating at this restaurant
Simple and Fresh food for cheap price i will say. Ordered whole fish and it was really tasty.
Loved it! Very nice people........good food, nice atmosphere and decor
We went for a late lunch. The service was very friendly, the food came quickly and was delicious. I had the fried conch basket and my husband had the coconut shrimp and grilled chicken sandwich. He said both were great! Glad we stopped.
Great hole in the wall place! Good prices too for the amount of food you get. I got shrimp basket and it was delicious. Very casual so no need to dress up! Definitely recommend.
Quick service, fresh and tasty seafood at an affordable price. It is nicely decorated and the staff is friendly. I dont know what else you could ask for.
I really enjoyed my meal of seafood soup w/such a variety of fish included and conch fritters.
Worst Restaurant on the Keys. This has been one of the worst restaurants I’ve ever been to. The food was not fresh and they fry everything together the fish, fries and shellfish all in the same oil for everyone. I have a shell fish allergy and had an allergic reaction because they use the same oil for everything. Also my wife ordered fish and it was raw. Please don’t waste your time and money, there are better options nearby. La Niña much better option.
Had the grilled shrimp basket I was great
I would have rated them higher but I can't understand why they dont serve black beans with their yellow rice? When I asked they just didn't want to. So much for my 80 dollar lunches. They lost a good customer. Wouldn't even consider it. Bye bye. Waitress is very nice. Too bad she won't make much in tips. The restaurant up the road bends over backwards for their customers. Maybe why they were packed and we were the only people at Kings
On the way to the Key West and found the restaurant to have lunch with family. Seafood is fresh and good even not seasoned very much. Price is reasonable. Nice place to stop by.
Great experience! The staff was very friendly. Food was great!
Best seafood prices in the keys
King Seafood in Marathon Key is the real deal. Big portions with small prices. A win win situation!
Laid back vibes, Friendly staff, very tasty ad fresh food. Reasonable prices. Def recommend it.
Awesome restaurant delicious I ordered the snapper with my lovely fiancée and she loved it so I was able to impress her I coming to this great restaurant. The oysters were fresh not frozen like at some places the Cuban rice was awesome I definitely will be coming back here and recommending this place all my friends
Excellent service, amazing food. Had the fried fish, very delicious. No line, no wait. The lady who brought our food was so nice. Definitely a place we can go every time we drive to key West
Great selection and friendly people. We picked up some Conch to make chowder
Great food, seafood sampler was fantastic, good prices, friendly staff.
Great food and friendly staff. There was a nice selection of food for everyone, including the kids. Dont judge it by the appearance as it is an older establishment. Also had a fresh fish case including fish dip and catch of the day.
I went to lunch there and had one of the best chicken burritos I’ve had in a long time. It was two very big burritos I was so full I could hardly walk
Delicious food at a great price in a cute fish market/restaurant and super friendly staff! Definitely stop in and try some of the incredibly fresh seafood. It's nice to have lots of options that aren't the traditional deep fried everything. I'd been looking for conch that wasn't breaded, since I wanted to try it, and found multiple options here. Would definitely recommend! It looks a little off-putting on the outside on the side of the 1, but is delicious and super comfy inside.
This restaurant is a health hazard. We ordered two mahi mahi fish baskets later to find out they fried the fish,shrimp, chicken & fries all in the same oil. My husband has a shellfish allergy and had an allergic reactions. The food was not fresh. I ordered a linguine with mahi mahi and it arrived cold and the fish was completely raw and tasted slimey. The owner at the pay station was rude and basically wanted to blame us for their bad service. Needless to say save your time and money and go somewhere else.
Amazing food and great location. Had the Spanish rice with fish and it was outstanding. Conch fritters were really good too
Fast, fresh and delicious! Staff was super sweet and friendly. We tried everything from the grouper sandwich, to the Cuban sandwich, to conch fritters, to fried sweet plantains, to grouper soup, to Cuban coffee. My only wish was I had more room in my stomach!
Stopped by for lunch in our way from Key West. It’s right on hwy1 which was convenient. We both had the fish basket. There is a generous portion of tasty hot fries, good creamy cole slaw, and the mahi mahi was really tasty. Restaurant is clean and although it’s attached to a fish market, no fishy smells! Give it a try.
If you're from Miami, it's a little bit of home away from home. ❤️
Their Crab cakes were amazing. The best I've eaten so far. The Sandwiches are great too!!
This place is Great. The food was delicious. Fries shrimp, coconut shrimp were perfect. The tuna ceviche was so fresh. The rice dish was like you were eating Sunday dinner at mom's house
It is a wonderful place to enjoy seafood, I recommend it.
We went there for dinner, the "todays catch" lobster was my girlfriends favorite food from our 7 day trip in the area. The steak was good, but if you go there get some seafood!
The food is awesome!!! Prices are reasonable and place is clean. Would have given 5 stars but u have go up n order and get own drinks and they still want tip.
Wonderful Cuban influenced seafood. Generous helpings and prompt service.
Order at counter different. Nice food and decor
Coconut shrimp were delish! They ran out of crab cakes though.
We had dinner here whilst retreating from the cold northern weather. It was a very nice restaurant and fish market. Prices were reasonable. Recommended
Cooked our catch -yellow tail. Great service and cooked to perfection. We were here two years ago still excellent!. Greg and family from Edmonton, Alberta
Tuna ceviche was quality like sushi, whole fish was tender and not over fried, crab cakes were a lot of crab meat, and seafood soup was amazing and fresh I love this place. Prices are super reasonable order up front and sit down.
Good food amd decent prices
Best Cuban I ever had, and I have had a lot of them. The fish was extremely fresh. The place is no frills just good fresh food at a decent price. Also very friendly staff.
Great food. Fresh seafood. Amazing experience. Will come back again.
Dissapointed. I ordered fried fish and French fries. I didn't like the taste. Bad customer services
Great taste and fast service
First and foremost, this is a fish market, with a small restaurant on the side. One would expect good, local seafood. The coconut shrimp were nothing more than the frozen ones found at any grocery store. The conch fritters were all bread, with very little conch in them. The grouper soup was good, but did not have chunks of fish, bit rather ground up fish in very small bits, with a lot of rice. I expected more. Won't be back.
Excellent selection of fresh seafood, bought some lobster tails, shrimp, and stone crab claws, grilled it up that night and it was delicious
This place is a hidden gem in Marathon Key. It provides not only excellent food, but also a great value in comparison to various other competitors in the area. I recommend the Linguini from the specialities, it’s loaded with delicious and fresh clams, mussels, and shrimp. The Grouper soup is also a great addition before any meal. Overall I would say the combination of freshness and value are extremely hard to beat. I have attached a couple of pictures from my recent lunch, I believe they speak for themselves.
Great food! Good service. Been here in different occasions and the food is always on point. The skirt steak is great, the seafood soup and grouper soup are both awesome!
amazing as always - fried whole snapper and delicious sides
I don't like seafood! My friends told me if I was going to the keys..I should try seafood while there..My husband brought me to the keys and made sure the seafood was fresh, local caught. He ordered me a mahi mahi fried sandwich. I gingerly tasted a small bite..nothing fishy going on here! I enjoyed the sandwich..on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayo, alongside an order of onion rings. Cole slaw had a hint of lime, which I also liked. My husband enjoyed fried shrimp basket..said it was excellent!
We stayed for the first time in Key Colony so we didn’t know of any local place. We googled restaurants near by and came across this one. After reading reviews, we decided to go. The food was AMAZING. We had a large party so ordering at register made it easier. The food came out quickly and hot. Staff was amazing. Lady/owner at the register was very courteous and you can tell she took a lot of pride when informing us of quality and the amount of food served. Places like these are important to support. Local owners who strive to please! Will be back in a heartbeat!!!
Very good food. We had the fish burrito and it was actually two burritos. We are planning our trip home around this place so we can eat there one more time.
Great seafood place. Fast and excellent service.
Quiet restaurant with a "local" feel. Good prices and good food. Friendly service and fresh seafood available.
The food was delicious and the customer service was great, I would rate five starts if the food quantity was better. If I pay 23 dollars for a dish I expected more food for the price. Nonetheless very good food overall.
Great food. Easy ordering online.. Thank you
Fresh and excellent seafood.
Always fresh local fish. We always pick up fresh catch and cpok at home. Very friendly staff.
Ordered the blackened
This is the BEST place we've eaten at while in the Keys! We had the Coconut Shrimp, Crab Cakes, Smoked Fish Spread with crackers, and the mahimahi fish basket. It's obvious to the pallette, that the food is freshly caught and the prices are SO reasonable.
Amazing seafood for the right price! The ceviche was very delicious. Don’t forget to try the French fries!!! They were so good I ordered extras
The food was good/average. Hubby got a Cuban sandwich that he described as "good, large, lots of meat, good flavor". I got the blackened shrimp sandwich and it was about a cup of very tasty blackened shrimp on a plain cold roll with lettuce, tomato and onions. I ate the shrimp and left everything else. Got a side of sweet plantains that were fantastic. Got crab cakes for my daughter and we had to send one back since it was all breading (but the replacement was fine). The ambiance was strange, it's a cross between a diner and a fish market, and it's dark even during the day. We walked in and were seated with menus, but then the waitress came back to our table to say we had to walk back up to the front to order. You order, then pay, then go sit back down and they bring the food. Odd. Maybe it makes sense when it's busier? Overall it was fine, but I probably won't go back. Brutus Seafood up the street is better IMO.
Some of the best and freshest seafood around!! I always try and stop by when I'm in town. The waitress was extremely friendly and personable and she makes the experience that much better!!
Food was fantastic and the staff is friendly
Great tasting food....friendly laid back casual atmosphere....incredible food quality....friendly staff....a return to place
This place was very easy to find. Upon arriving we were greeted. You choose your seat and order up front. We ordered the Whole Fish which was fried just right and a blackened Shrimp Basket which was flavorful. The staff was nice and checked on us a few times to see if we needed anything. The food was delicious and the atmosphere is cruise kine
I ordered the grilled mahi sandwich and it did not disappoint! Best fish sandwich I’ve ever had. Friendly staff and clean restaurant. Overall great experience!
Food was good with an excellent selection of seafood and also fresh catch for purchase.
Seafoods are so fresh and good. Lobster is so yummy. Waitress is so nice and friendly....
Dont let the unassuming looks scare you off this place is a little hidden gem, blackened shrimp was great, prices are fair, definitely worth a try
We ate here for Thanksgiving during our vacation, and it was fantastic! The conch and shrimp were both the best we have had on our trip! So glad we stopped here!
Amazing food at a GREAT price, and the portions were more than enough to fill you up. Also, the staff were outstanding....super helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend!
Amazing blackened shrimp. Probably the best I have ever had. The staff was also great.
Fried Mahi mahi was chewy and did not taste like mahi.
This is a great place to go when in the keys. Great food, great portions, and prices.
Very friendly service and terrific food. Excellent value. I had the grilled snapper and it was delicious. My wife enjoyed the crab cakes.
Great food and great service. Will return
Casual laid back restaurant. So glad we stopped in here to eat in Marathon! I had the shrimp basket and man these were the BIGGEST tastiest fried shrimp I've ever tasted
The food was really good and affordable! Plus the waitresses had a great attitude ❤ I would recommend this place. And of course would eat there again.
Definitely a Cuban dining facility..... As long as you know that.....all else is great. The fish was great, we had mahi mahi and Shrimp dishes, served quickly and complete. Cuban coffee (no American coffee). Service attentive and top notch. Our server had some English language challenges... But I would request one of her tables again! Infact, she was the only server for the whole place for lunch and handled everything for all of us diners well! This is not fine dining. But, we did not have to pay fine dining prices either. If you visit Marathon Key....give King a try!!
Very kind and friendly. Loved It
Liked this place very much
Came for lunch and was very disappointed. Quesadillas were served cold and coleslaw was spoiled and rotten. Frank's Grill a few blocks away is a much better choice for lunch. I hope I dont get sick from the coleslaw. Took one bite and spit it out!
Good and affordable seafood in the Keys. Will definitely come back again when we are in the Keys.
Food was great and was able to get some lobster on the way out ,but the service wasn’t the greatest
Delicious and fresh seafood! The table's favorite was the seafood pasta!
The fish sandwich was delicious. The onion rings were a bit too breaded for my taste but it was easy to get the onions out and they were still delicious. The girl who took my order was sweet and accomodating. 5 stars!
Great atmosphere and staff. Awesome food. I highly recommend the seafood pasta, and the flan. Although it may not look amazing, the whole snapper is great. Overall great place to eat and chill. What I also find cool is that they have Coca Cola and Pepsi fountains with unlimited refills.
Awesome place to come eat seafood... great staff , great food ...
Amazing!! First night in marathon and we tried Kings!! We will be back on this vacation. The fish sandwiches and conch fritters were awesome!!
King Seafood always is a delight. Seafood is always fresh and delicious!
Food was good, service was also good
Excellent food, service and affordable prices
Great grouper, salad and yellow rice. Price is excellent and staff is nice. Portion was on the smaller side but ok for the price. I don’t usually write reviews but this place made me happy to do it.
Stopped here on the way back from Key West, and it was awesome! Easy access off of U.S. 1, reasonable prices for fresh seafood, and a cool atmosphere! The shrimp were perfectly fried and the sandwich was a nice break from all the over-the-top sophisticated sea food in the Keys. Simple, but delicious! Everything is fresh caught, and the market portion sells fresh seafood to take home. All in all, a great choice when you're down this way!
Saw all the good reviews and some that weren't so great so I decided I'd try it out. Brought my family here to eat, we are visiting for a week in the Keys. I thought the prices were okay at first but then when we got the food the amount of food that we received was disappointing. They claim jumbo shrimp...these are not jumbo. The chicken fried basket was literally small chunks of chicken fried. Not enough for an adult at all. The Cuban was big but very very bland. The woman at the counter was nice but really faked it where as the waitress was extremely nice. We will not return, just wasn't that great especially for the price.
KING SEAFOOD REMINDED US WHAT GOOD SHRIMP TASTES LIKE!! After a REALLY bad experience in Key West at the Eaton Street Seafood Restaurant paying $17 for FLAT, BADLY BREADED AND CRAZY DRY Shrimp...we needed our pallets to be brought back! King Seafood was nothing fancy, but for $10 we had their Fried Shrimp Basket and they were battered well and VERY juicy...DEFINITELY worth the stop!! We also had their handmade Onion Rings...pretty good! Would definitely recommend stopping if you are going through Marathon!!
This is the freshest “from the boat to the table” lobster and stone crabs you will ever have. Judy, Daniel and the entire family are wonderful and will make you feel welcomed. Try the “flan”, best in the Keys!
Excellent food! We eat here at least twice every time we visit Marathon. Prices are cheaper than other local restaurants. Food is fresh and delicious.
Fresh seafood market! Loved it, I got the calamari as an app and then we each got the snapper with two sides. We had tostones, sweet plantains, yellow rice and yucca fries. Didn’t give 5 stars because the snapper was smaller than we wished but all was great. Will definitely come again!
Great grouper soup. Unassuming interior nicely cooked seafood.
Looks like a hole in the wall but was legit the best seafood pasta I have ever had. Owners are Cuban so there is a definite Cuban flair to the execution of the dish. If you are a seafood lover, you would love this dish, brimming with various seafood items. Will definitely return!
King seafood is a real deal. Everything is fresh and deliciouso. I would definitely come back here. 5 star and would recommend this restaurant
Conch fritters were amazing! Friendly quick service! Will definitely come back
Huge cuban. It was delicious . Sea food market was friendly and selection was good. The fried key lime pie is amazing.
Unique, authentic food. Good prices.
Clean and cool escape from the Florida sun. Ordered the crab cake sandwich and sweet plantains. The service was quick and food was delicious. Key lime pie and flan were an excellent end to our meal.
Great fresh seafood for an amazing price. Been coming here for years and still love it! Very consistently fresh seafood. Very friendly staff too!
Husband loved the blakened snapper on Cuban bread. I had the grilled shrimp fajitas- shrimp were bland and served with tails on in a dish with peppers and onions swimming in oil. Key lime pie was great.
We were on our way back from key west when we stopped by for a quick bite the place is very clean and welcoming. The food was ready soon. We had the minuta sandwich and the crabcakes sandwich. The food was great and a reasonable price. We recommend it
Enjoyed the shrimp basket which has very tasty local Key shrimp. The tuna sandwich was very fresh tasting. Great speedy service at a good price!
We chose this restaurant based on reviews here and were not disappointed! The food was great and the portions were huge. and the prices were right.
Nice servers, good food. Blackened shrimp very good. Tasty fries. Steak sandwich could have used more flavor.
They had nice stone crabs at a decent price.
Just stopped in to look at the local catch.. not a whole lot to choose from but what I saw looked fresh !
It is a Cuban restaurant, specialize in Seafood their blackened Lobster was outstanding I highly recommend this restaurant I will be going back to try some other dishes.
Fresh as you can get. Very generous portions. Fast courteous service.
Seafood is fresh and delicious. The staff is so nice and helpful. Our family of 5 tried a variety of dishes and everyone liked what they ordered. A nice variety of seafood and Cuban.
Great night with family, courteous staff and wonderful displays for entrees. Food was marvelous and worth the reasonable pricing.
This place has amazing Cuban food. I loved the shrimp Spanish rice dish.
Very good food. Casual atmosphere. We had crab cakes which had lots of crab in them. We also had the coconut shrimp which had an amazing sauce with them. Good prices and fresh food. We would come back again.
AWESOME coconut shrimp!! We also had the Conch Strip basket and it was fantastic! Great food!! Great atmosphere!! Highly recommended!!
Great food and the food portion is more than u can eat. 4 star review only because, they give you menus and tell you to have a seat then you have to go back up to place your order and then pay. That's no big deal tho. So there is no waitress or waiter yet they still ask for tips. But they have awesome food and great prices.
Not much selection. Price is pretty steep.
Excellent food and staff. Prices are good too.
Always our favorite when away from home and in Marathon. Great food and priced just right. Love the yellow rice and shrimp and the lobster croquetas.
Absolutely horrible. The Groupon was bad in my sandwich. Straight up vinegar tasting rotten. Waste of time waste of money.
Have only picked up take out from here but food smells amazing when people eating in house! Great selection of seafood!
Very nice flavor , quick service, fresh local seafood.
Everything else was packed so we ended up here and everything was amazing. Unique service but it was still a great meal.
Excellent seafood! Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly! Loved everything we ordered.
Really good food, and great prices. We ate here twice during our stay, and were very satisfied!
Very good food and service, but portions were small
Excellent Snapper fish sandwiches! Nice crispy fries, lettuce, onion, tomatoes.
Phenomenal dining experience! Located directly on overseas highway. Modest decorations of netting, buoys, and saltwater gamefish. The staff is friendly, upbeat, and willing to answer questions in detail. The portions are amazing for the price. The seafood soup is delicious and has a large variety of things in it. It is so flavorful with the right amount of spices, so that it does not mask the seafood itself. For a main course, the Minuta fish sandwich was authentic and a must try. It is butterflied and fried with the skin and tail left on. It is boneless, so no worries while consuming. Since visiting the keys, Key Lime pie is a must. They offer it chilled or fried. Having it fried was a new experience and simply amazing. The key lime taste is not faded out by having it fried. Bottom line, this is an inexpensive and excellent way to try a variety of seafood. Stop in and see for yourself.
What a hidden gem of a seafood restaurant. Grouper was prepared perfectly. Definitely coming back. Great prices and great service.
This was a delightful dining experience. The establishment is as much a fish market as a restaurant, and the freshness shows. I had a grilled snapper sandwich; the snapper was absolutely perfect and full of flavor. I ordered a side of sweet plantains, and they were perfect too. Others with me enjoyed a grilled mahi mahi sandwich, and a yellow rich bowl with conch, which was amazing. The staff is super friendly. Don't skip this one of you're in Marathon.
Very clean, prices are low, service is good and the food was very good.
Great food and reasonable prices
Awesome place, great food and portions. The food is fresh and authentic. The next time I visit Key West, I'll definitely consider visiting a second time. Keep it up!
we ordered several seafood dishes and not one of them tasted fresh. Ironically the Cuban sandwiches were good. But it’s suppose to be a seafood place. If you say you sell fresh seafood, then do so or don’t present yourself as a fresh seafood place. Will not go back and will not recommend.
Nice food, perfect for family. Hippie band singing Beatles was great.
Great value for money, very friendly service, and very tasty food. Very happy with the Stone Crab and the Arroz con Pollo. Would come back next time we visit. Whilst they offer free desert for a review (up to three), we simply couldn’t take them up as we were too full from the large portions. Didn’t stop me from giving a good review where it is much deserved.
Awesome experience. Great service, excellent food, huge shrimp. Sad that I don’t know when I’ll be back.
What a find!!!! The freshest fish ever. Both the grouper a d seafood soup are delicious.
We ended up here when we tried to go to a different seafood restaurant which was closed, and while we probably wouldn't have chosen this one on our own we sure did have a good meal. Fried key west shrimp, a Cuban sandwich featuring a batter-fried whole de-boned snapper, the fish soup and the Chicken Alfredo were all absolutely delicious. If you're looking for a casual location offering traditional seafood-shack grub with a Latin American kick, friendly if a bit sassy service and fabulous people watching, this is the place for you.
The food was good. My husband ordered a fried snapper and it was excellent. We loved it! My step-daughter ordered the seafood past plate and she said it was worth the money! The service was okay.
The food was average and the amount of food was poor. Probably my expectations were too high
I was not pleased with this place. Food was bland and way overpriced even for the Keys.
Food was the best we had the entire week!
Awesome seafood. You order when you walk in which I thought was a little quirky and you seated yourself at booths with beautiful wood tops. It is also a seafood market. Grouper soup was very good, nicely spiced. My 2 friends ordered grilled grouper and mahi and they both enjoyed them. I ordered blackened snapper worried the blackened mix would be salty. It wasn't! I especially enjoyed the snapper . We will definitely return, OFTEN
Great food, very fresh. Has the geel of a fast food place, but the food isn't
Great fish sandwiches and friendly staff!
We are so disappointed, last day of vacation, we got really sick eating conch fritters. That's all we ordered, and all I had all day, my entire family got sick, be aware please, we dont want same to happen to you. Not a fresh seafood market!☹
The food is fresh and delicious, and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
Best coconut shrimp ever!! Conch basket was also outstanding!! Great food and Great service!! Highly recommend!
Fish, fried shrimp, calamari, and stuffed plantains were all good and reasonably priced for the portions. Key lime pie was overly sweet with little lime flavor.
