“Beautiful location food not up to snuff”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We went to Marker 88 for dinner. First off the staff was great, the location beautiful with a magnificent view of the sunset. The meal started off great with the coconut shrimp. Large shrimp very well prepared. The main courses were a bit of a dissapointment. My wife ordered lobster, what she got was a tiny tail maybe 6 ounces if that. For $32 it was a joke. I got snapper, the fish was a bit mushy, tasted good but almost seemed preprepared. Again for $28?. The highlight was the Thai green beans. We would like to go again buy next time may e a sandwich or just an appetizer. $103 with two glasses of wine was a steep price to pay for a nice view.

“Best meal ever!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We were in the Keys for the week, and this was our favorite. The Hogfish was the best fish we ever had. The sunset was perfect and the service was just right to enjoy the experience. We will be sure to visit again. The Leppla's,Mukwonago Wi.

“Good food, great sunset.”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

I had a delicious yellowtail snapper meal outside overlooking the water. The sunset was beautiful. It was very windy, which the waitress said was unusual. She was very helpful and informed us of other places to try in the area. The menu is a bit pricey. Overall a nice experience.

“Ok”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

While the view was spectacular and most of our food was good, there was a long wait for everything, our waiter was confused a lot, and we had to ask for things a few times. Also it was VERY expensive.

“Drink for sunset”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Stopped in hoping to get dinner and watch the sunset. We were told we'd have a 15 minutes wait -- which is OK because there are benches to watch the view over the bay and a bar to get a drink while you wait. The bar was busy but the bartender was nice and made us great drinks. We watched a beautiful sunset waiting for our table -- there were about 10 empty ones -- When I asked how much longer after 20 minutes, we were told it would be another 15 minutes. We were HUNGRY. So we left. THe hostesses were not nice. Too bad - it was a beautiful view and the musician playing was good. Food? I only wish I knew.
