Stopped in for a late lunch. I had the Mahi-Mahi sandwich (fried) and wife had the coconut shrimp. Outside tables so we could accomodate our dachsie in her pet stroller. Plenty of parking but it is around the side and not on the road any longer since the road was widened. Food was good, I had a beer, (bottled) since... More

Food and service and music were all great. The band played a nice assortment of blues etc. Dessert choices make for s difficult decision.

While spending almost a month on Sugarloaf Key, my husband and I ate at Mangrove Mama's 5 or 6 times. We found the atmosphere to be great. It really has a Keys vibe. With one exception we found service to be excellent. And the food, while not gourmet, was very good. We especially found the less pretentious dishes to be... More

Food was real good!! Service was a bit slow as they seem to not have enough people working the tables. Atmosphere was good as they had the classic beach scenery / feel to the place. Prices were a bit high in my opinion. But overall good place to eat.

This restaurant advertised their Sunday brunch by sending high quality colored flyers thru the mail. The flyer showed a delicious looking plate and a listing of foods a available for the brunch. Do not trust advertising. The food was horrible. All items were cold. The eggs benedict was dry with hard beg and a dropper of flavorless sauce. They had... More

We enjoyed coconut shrimp and the Mahi sandwich; and it was excellent. We loved the Key West atmosphere, which honestly; I don't think any establishment even has to try very hard in the Keys to be successful at! The staff was courteous and attentive; I would have to say the only drawback was the Florida law that allows smoking in... More

This small place was a nice, welcoming stop away from the crowds on Key West. The weather had been rainy, so we didn't eat outside. (It's not on the water, so outside eating is a little less inviting). My wife got mahi tacos and said they were "pretty good". I got the blackened mahi sandwich, which was quite good. They... More

Stayed in nearby Lower Sugarloaf Key, placed order for pizza pickup. Mamas, service quick and responsive. Ordered, 3 pizzas Mamas specialty combo pizza, pepperoni and cheese. Crust and sauce great, toppings great, hot and ready to go for pickup despite a busy saturday night. Will definitely do again when we are back in the area.

Extremely slow service and blah food. I guess it's a hip place but 3 stars is he best I can give. Music outside, drinks average and pricy.
