Food was average. Prices were too high. 75$ dinner for two. With no bells or whistles staff was friendly but pushed too hard for sales. Wasn't unpleasant but wont go back

More than just a tiki bar! Divided into several sections with TVs, fire pit or dining only. Do believe they have live music at times in addition to a gift shop. Dinner was a step up from bar food - the fresh fish sandwiches were outstanding. The staff were very helpful and attentive. Fun place!

I've come here at least 200 times and thought I should show some love! The staff is always friendly, great bartenders who can always make a good drink! Always have different events during the week (bingo Tuesday, trivia wed), live music every night and specials everyday. Just a good fun environment! Chad the manager is awesome, friendly and helpful!

Been here for lunch twice in one week! Outdoor atmosphere, inside comfort! Clean, fast, and very scenic! The beer was cold and the burgers and seafood were plentiful! I only wish it was a little cheaper!

We stopped here a couple times while we were in the Keys. Live band was good and plenty of seating both at the bar and tables. Bartenders were friendly and fast. Will definitely be back.

We stopped here on the way to Key West. It was fun, got us in the mood for our Florida trip and the food was amazing. Our server was great and friendly and we were served promptly.

If you like the usual touristy music, food and environment, then this is a great spot. Always busy. Locals love it. I felt the food was ok but not great. The music was as close to elevator as you could get without actually playing elevator music

We took my friend from Minnesota out to eat. She got the hogfish which was very good. She ordered a side salad and it was brought with the meal. Her preference like up North is they bring ahead of the meal, so possibly the waitress should ask if you want that ahead of the meal. Overall, she was satisfied with... More

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.
