Known for many years as a place to get beer and shrimp steamed in beer. After all, in 1951 there were many shrimp boats parked a stone’s throw from the restaurant and if you never met a shrimper, the you probably don’t know it but them boys can drink some beer.
In 1999 John and Arlene sailed into Marathon, Florida ending a voyage that began in Los Angeles. They bought the restaurant and began a new adventure, oh yeah, they also got married that year, quit their jobs, sailed the boat and moved to the fabulous Florida Keys.
Lionfish Central is dedicated to bringing you all the restaurants that serve lionfish. This restaurant is helping control the invasive lionfish in our waters. We continually look for restaurants that are taking a bite out of the lionfish population. Please visit this restaurant and help us eat our way out of the lionfish invasion.
You can also do your part by simply asking any restaurant you visit if they have any lionfish dishes on the menu. If the answer is no ask if they can try to put it on their menu. Just that little question or two will help with the demand for lionfish on the menu. If enough people ask regularly they will want to start serving it.
