We visited mid August, for dinner. After looking at TripAdvisor at reviews, this was on our 'must try' list. Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed with our visit. There were a lot of positives.. good servers, nice fried key lime pie :) , lovely view,...More

Nothing to write home about; just average food, massive tourists and just no big deal. Just typical seafood restaurant, if you like fried, fried, fried whatever!

Best fish sandwiches and fresh fish in the Keys. You've got to try their spicey fries-one order is enough for your table.

Let me start by saying if you are trying to choose between Burdines and Castaway, choose both. But if you only have time for one, go with Burdines. The views are incredible throughout this restaurant. The Tuna Tar Tar and Shrimp burger were on point....More

I found Burdine's on yelp with great reviews and so I had very high expectations, that were cut short thanks to the biting flies. My hubby and I started with a local Islamorada brewing Co beer (delish but $4.75/bottle).. and then ordered dinner, the California...More

Laid back where the locals go. Went there after a snorkeling trip on the Spirit and had an AMAZING lunch. Fried Mahi samdwich, fresh to order hush puppies and fries ( enough to share). And don't forget the Fried Key lime pie! !!!

I know I'm the outlier here, but I'm not sure I understand the love for this place. It's basically average bar food at above average prices. Sure they've got that waterfront bar quality to them, but there are literally dozens of waterfront bar-restaurants from Key...More

Well I'm already here! Don't need a boat. But if you mean can you come by boat then yes! Just ask the guys on the dock where to tie up and come on up to the second level. We even have an elevator to get there. Enjoy!

We have a mini elevator that you can use. Easy to operate but you can ask for help too no problem. In the event of a power failure we have some young strong cooks who have been known to carry damsels in distress up and down... More
