Bars/Restaurants in Lower Keys and Marathon

So, we're going to start our next Key West vacation with a couple days in Marathon. We would love to get some recommendations of some good bars or restaurants to spend some time. We'll have a car and will be driving from EYW to the Marathon area, staying at a hotel around MM 45, so anything from Stock Island to Marathon is fair game. Look forward to hearing about everyone's favorites!

A little further up the keys but worth a visit Is The No Name Pub. Go for some pizza and a cold brew and inquire about the history of the place. Half the fun Is trying to find it. It's a challenge without GPS. Drive slowly because you might see some key deer crossing The road. Have fun !

Just an FYI, if your hotel is at MM 45, you'll be staying ON the bridge ;-)

Sunset Grill is OK, the last 2 times that we ate there, we were pretty much ignored by the waitstaff. IF we go again, and get the same treatment, it'll be the LAST time that we go there.

We LOVE Sparky's Landing. LOVE LOVE LOVE Sparky's Landing.

Agree with Sparky's, always a good time with good food, music and beautiful views! Also in Key Colony Beach is Cabana Breezes, on the water, good food, tiki bar and bands on the weekends.

Square Grouper does have awesome food and I love eating there, they will be closing soon for a short time for vacation. No Name Pub is fun too! And thinking pizza, Zaza's on Sugarloaf is terrific! then you can have a few drinks at the Lodges tiki hut. But for an island atmosphere, and good food I'd choose Sparkys.

Buffetguy, on second glance, I believe we're closer to MM 48. I've read lots of bad reviews about the service at the Sunset Grill. Guess we'll be avoiding that one. Lots of great suggestions so far. Please keep them coming. There are quite a few we we had not previously been aware of!
