A great choice on Key Colony Beach whatever the occasion. They have one of the best views around, elegant outdoor dining and excellent entertainment later on in the evening. A nice place for couples and families!

Enjoy the best sunset in the middle keys on their outside deck. Trendy gourmet preparations characterize their menu!

 


ROMANTIC DINING

Grassy Key

Hideaway Cafe
Phone: (305) 289-1554
If you want to impress him or her, don’t go anywhere else! Without question, this is the best place around for intimacy and service. I highly recommend that you select prime rib or one of the many cuts of beef here, this is their specialty. 

In their words:

Award winning cuisine coupled with a breathtaking view is served up every day in the casual atmosphere of the Hideaway Café. The only thing we overlook is the ocean!!

 


Duck Key

Porto Cayo

Excellent cuisine across the board. High end dining at its best, with a a nice selection of menu choices.


CASUAL DINING

Key Colony Beach

Sparky’s Landing

Phone: (305) 289-7445
Great wings, the best fish sandwich in the Keys and excellent happy hour prices. The food is good here, whatever you choose and the prices are more than reasonable. 

In their words

Sparky’s Landing was founded in February of 2006. Our focus is good times, fresh fish & refreshing cocktails. Sparky’s is located on the docks of the KCB Marina in Key Colony Beach.

 

Marathon

Burdines
Phone: (305) 743-9204

I recommend the chips and salsa or the sausage sub which you won’t find anywhere else. Another favorite is the hand cut fries and you’ll find this to be a great choice for lunch.

Castaway
Phone: (305) 743-6247
A Marathon tradition amongst locals and long time middle-keys vacationers. You’ll find reasonable selections and a salad bar. They also serve honey buns with every meal, which are their version of fried dough, they are absolutely addictive!

The Island
Phone: (305) 743-4191
Fast and friendly bartenders, excellent happy hour prices, great drinks including frozen varieties and its the best place for a classic burger; all with a very nice view of the water on the gulf side.

Keys Fisheries
Phone: (305) 743-4353
Self serve dining on their outside deck, which surrounds the restaurant. The specialty there is the Lobster Reuben. They also provide vending machines filled with fish food which you can buy a handful for 25 cents. As you can imagine, this keeps large Tarpon and Snapper around their deck year round. The kids love this place.


CHINESE FOOD

Marathon

The Panda House
Phone: (305) 743-3417

The best Chinese around these parts. They deliver and they also have an excellent luncheon buffet!


PIZZA

Marathon

Marathon Pizza
Phone: (305)743-9993
Prompt delivery, fresh toppings and good pizza. Their style is on the thin side, but not exactly Neapolitana.

Upper Crust
Phone: (305)743-7100
Excellent, hearty, gourmet style pizza. You’ll have to pick it up or dine in though!


AUTHENTIC CUISINE

Marathon

Taino’s
Phone: (305) 743-5247
If you want to try traditional Cuban cuisine, try this place. The food is very good, reasonably priced, and the servings will feed an army.

 


BEST FOOD PERIOD

Layton

Little Italy
Phone: (305) 664-4472
If you believe that locals know where to go for good food, try this place. Very casual, but the service and food are absolutely first rate. The prices are better than reasonable, servings are large, the salad bar is well stocked, and the people are always friendly.


WINE, SPIRITS & DELI

Marathon

Marathon Liquor & Deli
Phone: (305) 743-6350
If you want a better selection of wines and high end spirits that you won’t find elsewhere, this is the place. This is also the best deli in town, with everything you need!

 

Cabana Breeze’s

(305) 743-4849
I have mentioned this place many times because it really is a great spot. To catch the real flavor of Key Colony Beach, hang out with Randy or Lance at the Breeze. This is the place that you’re going to do a shot with the bartender and most likely the place where the bartender will buy you a drink. The atmosphere is nice, the view is great and the drinks are outstanding!!

Sports Bars

Grassy Key

The Wreck
(305) 743-8282
Excellent prime rib at a great price along with great fried fish and chicken. There are TV sets positioned nicely around the bar and they’ll accommodate any game of your choice. If you’re into sampling Key Lime Pie, theirs is home made and my personal favorite!
