We stopped in on a Sunday evening and the place was empty. Service was fine. I had grilled fish tacos. The toppings and dressing were yummy. The fish could have used a little seasoning, but the rest made up for it! And the black beans and rice accompanying it was the best I've ever had! Perfect flavor. All that said,... More

Low key locals favorite. Barbara (Call me Ma) puts her heart and soul into every aspect of the operation. The results are casual authentic seafood that exceeds expectations. They key lime pie is among the best I every tried, and I've been a key lime pie critic for 70 years. Fish basket was generous, perfectly cooked. Blackened Mahi BLT to... More

We ate here tonight at the suggestion of Cheeca Lodge. Just wanted something simple and we ordered 3 Taco Dinners and a Baja Chicken Dinner along with my Yellowtail Dinner. All of the Taco Dinners and Baja Chicken Dinners came out incorrectly and you could see no one ate them. Waitress still charged me in full even after we said... More

We came here for lunch because the Key Lime Pie was rated #2 in the Keys by MiamiNewTimes.com. It's a quiet, low-key place right on Rt. 1 with very good food and the pie lived up to expectations! They have a number of fresh fish options, I chose swordfish, blackened. Very nice. Comes with rice and even the veggies were... More

We have been going to Islamorada for quite some time. This was our first trip to Ma's. It was recommended by a regular who had very nice things to say about it. We gave it a try and were greeted by a wonderful gentleman who seated us. it was a little wait before someone came by to take our order.... More

Great tasting food and friendly service. However we ordered catch if the day, which was small in portion and very expensive for the price. We were not told how the dish was priced when we ordered and we were told the owner took out the price on purpose. Wish felt kind of tricky since it seems this problem happened before.... More

We chose Ma's from reviews on TA and other sites. We were disappointed with the facility when we arrived and disappointed with the service and lack of attention to details when we finished dining. The food was good but we had better meals within a mile or so for less $$.

This place was great. Fresh delicious food, friendly staff, and prices that were reasonable (for the keys). What more could you ask for? Get the conch fritters; best I've ever had!

Nice sized portions of fish with your choice of preparation for their fish choices. We had the mahi mahi which was prepared really well. Desserts are amazing. Key lime is really good if you like it kind of tart.

Description
Our restaurant atmosphere is warm and friendly. Our food is prepared delightfully light, healthy and flavorful. Our seafood is grilled with lovely toppings - and if you desire fried, we fry in rice oil for good health. We do have delicious, made in house desserts including our Awarding winning traditional Key Lime Pie, German Chocolate Cake and locals favorite Hummingbird Cake. MA's also has a desirable Wine and Beer menu.
