I've picked up fresh stone crab to take back to Orlando twice here. The last time was 12/29/2016. This time I also picked up a coconut cake. Both were great. Lot's of amazing stuff available in the fishmarket, so it's not just the casual backyard restaurant to tryout.

Order at the counter, pick up and eat at a table over looking the water. Excellent choices, fresh seafood and reasonably priced given self service. You'll get the same seafood meal for half the price of a full service, waterfront restaurant. A mix of seniors and travelers heading up/down highway. Clean, courteous staff. Great fresh seafood market too if you... More

We stopped in here last year. Our lunch was very good then so we decided to make sure we stopped in again this year. Anyways, when we got there they had a decent sized crowd but it wasn't to long of a wait to place our order (you order at the window). We decided on the fried grouper and combo... More

This is exactly as named, a 'backyard' atmosphere. Yes, the plates and silverware are plastic and it is mostly self serve, as is your backyard, but the seafood is FRESH, prepared well, and delicious at a better price than you will get fresh, local, prepared seafood anywhere else in the Keys. Portions are a great size. The atmosphere is relaxed,... More

The system for ordering is goofy because some things (sandwiches) are ordered at the window and some (stone crab) are ordered inside. This may be because Stone Crab is seasonal? Honestly it may have been on the window menu but the menu has way too many items to look over while standing in line. The picnic style set up (with... More

The fish is good tasting but the environment and plastic and paper instead of more substantial dishes and utensils is depressing. You have to provide your own service and busing.

I have been to the fisheries backyard a half dozen times now, and it has always been delicious. They have a wonderful fresh fish market which allows them to serve some of freshest fish you can find, prepared many different ways. My personal favorite is the seafood bisque. It is rich and creamy and just fantastic. I always bring a... More

Wow, the fresh food was awesome and great eating. This is spot to visit when in Key Largo. The place is clean, neat and organized. Friendly environment and staff. I had the coconut shrimp platter with fries plus Arnold palmer drink which was good eats. However, the shrimp did not have a coconut taste but it still taste good. Upper... More

Key Largo Fisheries Backyard Cafe is a reflection of a laid back keysie style restaurant with outdoor seating on a covered deck. We offer a diversified and delicious menu. We have quality seafood at affordable prices. You can come dine on our deck or take your fresh catches home to enjoy with the family. We also have a seafood market that houses a variety of Fresh from Florida seafood. From Florida Lobster, Stonecrabs, Yellowtail Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Grouper and Hogfish to freshly made salads like Smoked Fish Dip, Conch Salad and Ceviche. We have it all!!! We also provide free tours!!! Call ahead to schedule your free tour of a local, working fishery. We are a family owned and operated business that has been in business since 1972. Come see everything from how we fillet the fish to packing ballyhoo to watching the fishermen unload their fresh catches.
