King Seafood, Marathon???
Just wondering if anyone has been to King Seafood in Marathon? I'm down in the Keys 2-4 times a year, but I always stay in the Lower Keys. I'll be taking my sister-in-law and brother-in-law (and my wife of course) down for a trip in a few months. Since we'll be bringing guests we'll most likely be stopping for lunch on the way down (I'm always just worried about getting there).
I was looking for a laid back, Keysie type place to take them. Got a bunch of suggestions on another board (fishing forum), but I found this new place in Marathon online. They don't have a website, but there is a video on Youtube. It looks like the kind of place I'm looking for, and I was trying to find some people that had been there to confirm that. Looks like it is a fish market/restaurant opened by a Cuban couple.......so, of course, the food has a Cuban slant to it.
Yeah, so it's been open for less than a year if I recall correctly. I eat there a few times a month mostly for the price, and their "fish sticks" which are really good and priced at $1.25 a piece.
It's picnic bench seating only... not necessarily Keysie... unless you consider the Cuban-owned restaurants overlooking US HWY 1 as Keysie... seems more like progress from industrious immigrants. Either way, I'm going there now. Ciao!
As long as the seafood is fresh and cooked well it's okay with me. Just looking for a place to stop in for a quick lunch on the way down to Key West. Taking a couple of my sister-in-laws from out of state (and wife) down for four nights......they love seafood, especially whole fish. I was thinking of their whole fried yellowtail or something similiar
I know this place is fairly new, but I was hoping someone on the board had tried it out......oh well, I will stopping for lunch there on my way down to Key West in June (if I don't go earlier). I will post a review from my visit. I will also post reviews of any other new places I visit. Of course I'll be stopping by El Sibony, Sandy's, Bad Boy Burrito and Cuban Coffee Queen while I'm down there like usual.
