Hurricane Irma took it's toll on our little islands. Boondocks was quick to re-open. Their limited menu had something for everyone. The staff could not have been friendlier. The place is packed with locals looking for a good place to eat. Well they found it.

Nothing that remarkable about the putt-putt, but the place is well maintained and gave us free water when asked. Bathroom is AC and clean! Had a nice time. Full sun so wear your sunscreen.

Sorry, but I don't know. They have a banner outside that tells of the entertainment of the day. If you can't get by to see that banner, give them a call. Candy

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS FOR THE LARGEST TIKI BAR IN THE FLORIDA KEYS Boondocks opened their doors over 25 years ago as a small ice cream shop. The current kitchen was the entire building. Quickly realizing Ramrod Key was in need of more than just ice cream the original owners expanded the menu to include sandwiches, and later added beer and wine to the mix. It wasn't until 2001 that the real transformation began to take place. Lanny was first to arrive in the Florida Keys and scope out Boondocks. Seeing past the overgrown trees and broken tables he immediately called this father, Larry and long time friend and colleague, John to hop the next flight down and check out their new home. With Lanny's vision, John's restaurant expertise and Larry's backbreaking work ethic, Boondocks Grille and Draft House and Miniature Golf has become one of the most popular destinations on the overseas highway.
