Marathon Florida has so many great locally owned seafood restaurants. This is one we always recommend in the middle keys. The food is so fresh and yummy, it was outstanding to eat at Fish Tales Eatery cafe.
Nice small restaurant is a local favorite and walking distance for those staying in Key Colony Beach (north Marathon). Look for it in front of the Marathon Lady Party Fishing Boat. Do also tour Captain Hooks Marina and the beautiful Vaca Cut.
Try the roast pork and sauerkraut dish, so yummy, and they even have beer here. Good spot, close to lots of local hotels so you can just walk over to it on the sidewalk.
I stop at the store on the way home and pick up a few things for dinner all of the time. Quick and easy is nice. The weekend weather is going to be great to go out on the Marathon Lady Party Boat next door.
Thanks so much for bringing up the story and highlighting how good this seafood shop is. We have been coming for years and have never been disappointed. Pay attention to their weekly specials which are fantastic. We (Frank's Grill) are right across the street (11400 Overseas Hwy). Can you post our website url link so people can know what we do. That would be most appreciated. We have a cold beer waiting for you!
You can use the Abyss Dive Center to hit the reefs. The shop is located next to Bonefish Bay Motel and near the Holiday Inn Express. They offer all sorts of dive packages and trips to suit all ability levels. Sombrero Reef is a super treat. After, hit Fish Tales for Dinner!
This is the northern end of Marathon Key, on the top side of the Seven Mile Bridge. It is all about seafood here, fresh from the ocean: Yellowtail, Tuna, Dolphin and other local catch of the day. A good place to eat for fish sandwiches, which you can get to go or take-out.
