    Amazing gluten-free menu! Best in the Keys that we have seen. You can check it out on their website. So many options! My daughter loved the food. The only negative was they did serve her salad with croutons, but apologized and had a new one out in 5 minutes. And they do have gluten-free rolls!

    The food was bad. My husband and I felt nausea for the entire afternoon and ruined our day. The setting is very nice. It s a shame they couldn t deliver proper food. Plus i did not feel very safe with the GF as they made a mistake with order and had to send it back...

    Great food in a nice waterfront setting. Has a limited GF menu and some of the items listed in previous reviews are not available (bread). French fries are listed in their GF menu, but we were told that everything is fried in the same fryer. Menu is misleading!

    Flavor of the food was very good. Service was attentive. Server was well versed about gluten free menu items. Had the hot crab dip, caesar salad, and grilled shrimp skewers. Portions weren't very big, but they were flavorful. I'd definitely eat here again. Be aware that outdoor patio tables allow cigarette smoking in case that would disturb your meal to have your neighboring table putting off second hand smoke.

    They have a great selection on the GF menu. The food was delicious. They even have GF cheese bread 😃. It was delicious. Great service.

    Best place we ate all week. Great ambiance seated us right away (had reservations and it was crowded). Waiter Nick was awesome and knew all about gluten and their menu. They have a gf menu but fries are on it but not safe as he pointed out that shared fryer. I will go back when in the keys again. Thank you M88.

    Great place, nice waitstaff, but beware. They have a gluten free menu that lists fries, but they use the same fry oil for everything, so fried foods are not safe for celiacs.

    Have to be cautious with this one, I was on vacation and went for dinner. They have a gf menu, I was specifically told I could have the fries. I even commented how rare it was that I could have them, so how could I not go for it? I felt a bit uncomfortable after the meal, but nothing outrageous. I did wind up with skin issues, but that's not super uncommon and didn't think too much of it. I then stopped for lunch on the way out of town, asked to see the menu again, and before I could say another word, was warned to stay away from the fries since they share a fryer. Not sure who was telling the truth, but the staff could use a bit more training.

    Dinner was delicious and had a good gluten free menu. Our waiter seemed fairly new and struggled a bit- it took 25 minutes for us to get out check- but the other waitstaff seemed like they were amazing! Would have been a 5 star review if our waiter hadn't been new to the job.

    Amazing food and atmosphere. However, I ordered the same meal as my husband but without the sandwich bread and they charged me $14 more for "entree" dish. It was the same thing! Delicious and not worth the worry- we went with it. However, just make sure you are clear that you don't want the entree. There is so much food as it is!

    Wonder wonderful wonderful!!!!! It's a little pricey (meals are like $28-$60, apps range $10-$20, and drinks are like $8-$15) ( we spent like $100-$120 for a couple both nights) but VERY worth it! The staff and kitchen are very knowledgable! We went there twice this week when staying in the area! Everything was amazing! The fish was fresh and the sides were delish! I lived the sautéd mushrooms! Rangoon style fish was to die for! Our server even brought me out a basket of my own cheese rolls and dip sauce so that it would get cc with the other breads! The drinks are really good too!

    Separate gluten free menu available - Wow! Excellent food; I had hot crab dip and blackened mahi. Delicious. Nothing was too much trouble for our server Joe. Great food in beautiful surroundings.

    Gluten-free menu! Knowledgeable server. GF Cheesy rolls were great! We loved the Blue Crab dip (mostly crab, not lots of filler) and lobster guacamole (though the actual lobster portion could have been more generous). Key Lime Baked Alaska was inedible. Luckily the server traded it for the luscious White Chocolate Brulee. Also great atmosphere on the beach!

    I'm a "local" and eat here GF all the time, never been contaminated. As a matter of what I've been told they only hve rice flour in the kitchen so even "normal" people are eating gf and not knowing it. :) like that dedication. And the cheesy rolls are very yum!

    We recently traveled to the Florida Keys and we enjoyed two very good meals at Marker 88. The food is freshly prepared, so be patient waiting for it. Enjoy the sunset from one of the tables that have gilder chairs! Great fun! I had fish with salsa both times, (so delicious!!) but the hubs went for the filet of beef and he said it was tender and juicy. And as an added bonus, the Gluten Free cheesy rolls were moist and delicious! yaay!! I was not thrilled by the key lime baked alaska to be honest, but the service was great (thanks, Joe!) and the drinks generous.Some of the menu items are a bit overpriced, but that's the Keys during season, so I was not surprised. The sunsets--well, those are priceless--and spectacular. ***They really "get" what gluten free really means; I could tell by the statement posted on the menu. The waiter assured me that the chef takes every precaution in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination. I did not get sick either time, and that's my barometer, so go, and enjoy!
