This is a no frills restaurant that serves excellent food. The conch fritters and chowder were great with tender conch. The fresh daily caught fish was yellow tail, magi and something called triple tail and each was good and fresh. Great prices and friendly service.

My family and I go to Ma's almost every weekend and we are always extremely impressed. The fish is fresh, the service is great and the environment is wonderful. You must try the cracked conch appetizer!

We stopped for lunch. There was only two other tables eating. I had their healthy fish plate. It was Mai Mai cooked perfectly and grilled veggies also cooked perfect. My wife had fish tacos which were good but not as good as the ones we had at Garbo's in Key West. Very good food.

No water view seating to lure in the tourists - the food is what this restaurant is here for! The fish tacos here are awesome! In a very tourist oriented area, it was great to find 5-star food at an affordable price!

Good service, healthy portions and fresh fish for a reasonable price. We thought the key lime pie was the best in the area.

We ate here last year and enjoyed the food and was never packed. This time we waited about 30 minutes for a table and the service was slow and not very attentive. My wife and I split the broiled seafood platter and the other couple split the fried platter. Again the food was good. We just expect coffee and water... More

We were looking forward to eating at this restaurant for lunch and trying their key lime pie during our drive back up from Key West. However, we were disappointed when we got there at lunch time only to discover that they open at 4pm during the fall. It would be a good idea to update the trip advisor web information... More

We stopped at MA's for a light dinner... can't comment on their main entrees but my husband had the cobb salad and liked it a lot and I had their chopped veggie salad with balsamic dressing and thought it was quite good. I also had the WA organic Reisling which was excellent. We couldn't resist getting dessert and German Chocolate... More

Having left another local restaurant where the welcome and food offered were not up to scratch, we decided to eat at Ma's Fish Camp. We had tried before but apparently the restaurant is closed on Wednesdays. The food was good, portions plentiful with friendly helpful service.

Our restaurant atmosphere is warm and friendly. Our food is prepared delightfully light, healthy and flavorful. Our seafood is grilled with lovely toppings - and if you desire fried, we fry in rice oil for good health. We do have delicious, made in house desserts including our Awarding winning traditional Key Lime Pie, German Chocolate Cake and locals favorite Hummingbird Cake. MA's also has a desirable Wine and Beer menu.
