We stopped here on the way to Hawks Cay, we got a spot on the beach and had cocktails and apps. We had fun time and the food and drinks were delicious. We would highly recommend stopping on the way down the keys.

Wow.. this place is breathtaking. Prices are similar to New York City so prepare for that. We're from NYC so it felt normal. Food and drinks were on point. And being on a white sandy beach with those views sealed the deal.

Walked out after being sat for 20 minutes no service. No apology given. They really didn't care. There were a ton of workers so there was no excuse for the crappy service .

We're so very sorry that this happened. We remember you, the host informed me on your departure. I immediately investigated it and gave a stern 'coaching' to the server whose table was yours. We have no excuse for you, we agree this is unacceptable; I can only in going forward assure you that this will never happen again. We hope... More

The service at this restaurant is the absolute worst we have ever received. We went a year ago and while the service was horrific during that visit the food was delicious and the atmosphere warranted a second chance. This recent visit we were seated sooner than we were promised which seemed hopeful. Sadly 45 minutes of sitting at our table... More

We're so very sorry that you had a bad experience. There have been some evenings that we have been so busy that due to the sheer volume of guests coming all at once for lunch or for sunset dinner, we may have bit off more than we can chew. In either case, we agree that this is unacceptable and we... More

Our first night in Islamorada we were encouraged to try Morada Bay for dinner. The food was exceptionally good....blackened grouper, snapper, and steak...each person was very happy with the quality and taste of their meal. We sat at tables in the sand and listened to live music...the atmosphere added to the satisfying experience.

We stopped there with my family. The location is lovely, the food is delicious but the staff is scornful and not welcoming which ruins the potential great moment.

Wife and I ate at the Morada Bay Beach Cafe for lunch, an order of fish tacos, shrimp tacos, a Pinot noir, and a coke will set you back $52.00, but view, atmosphere, and service make it a great value!

Absolutely delicious meals on the beach under the palm trees with great sunsets and live music. Their Whole Fried Snapper was perfect with a Morada Bay Margarita. Staff was attentive and friendly. The whole experience came together as the evening lights came on and live music wafted across the beach... Parking was ample and free.
