Description: HUMBLE BEGINNINGS FOR THE LARGEST TIKI BAR IN THE FLORIDA KEYS Boondocks opened their doors over 25 years ago as a small ice cream shop. The current kitchen was the entire building. Quickly realizing Ramrod Key was in need of more than just ice cream the original owners expanded the menu to include sandwiches, and later added beer and wine to the mix. It wasn't until 2001 that the real transformation began to take place. Lanny was first to arrive in the Florida Keys and scope out Boondocks. Seeing past the overgrown trees and broken tables he immediately called this father, Larry and long time friend and colleague, John to hop the next flight down and check out their new home. With Lanny's vision, John's restaurant expertise and Larry's backbreaking work ethic, Boondocks Grille and Draft House and Miniature Golf has become one of the most popular destinations on the overseas highway.

“Service was great!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We were there in May 2014. The service was great, and the food was delicious. It's an open restaurant and I highly recommend it.

“Most amazing fish Taco's ever”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We recently returned from a trip to the Florida Keys. On our way to Key West we noticed Boondocks (In Ramrod Key) and decided to try it. We ordered the fish tacos as well as the Bang Bang Tacos. They were amazing!
Great service, great ambience, great food.

“Great Family Atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

The family and I made a stop to Boondocks. They had a great band that seemed to fit perfect for the atmosphere. The kids were dancing and the music wasn't overbearing or too loud. The kids played on the mini golf course and had a great time. Our server Nancy was hilarious and Chad (manager), made sure we were getting great service. Good Food, Great Atmosphere, and Great for the family.

“Extra Charges = BEWARE”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

I am a local and eat here often I love the chicken sandwich. I asked for some honey mustard to put on it and when i checked my bill they charged me for it. My sandwich was completely dry. I think this is just another way " nickel and dime" customers. When i spend 50 dollars for two sandwiches and beers i don't appreciate extra charges!
