Enjoy laid back oceanfront dining and Florida Keys style cuisine at Lazy Days South. Marathon's newest restaurant is owned and operated by Chef Lupe of Lazy Days of Islamorada, an annual winner of the "Overall Best Restaurant" in the Upper Keys People's Choice awards. At Lazy Days Restaurant, we guarantee you will be served the freshest seafood in town.

From Trip Advisor (Quiet Surprise) This place was recommended to us by a local. It is not visible from the street except for a big sign before you get on the 7mile bridge. It has a quaint old fashioned feel to it. We choose outside dining for the water view. Very quiet atmosphere. Felt like fine dining. Very prompt and attentive service. The prices are very reasonable. 3 at our table had the local special, each with different reactions. For $16, you got a large piece of chicken with a side and soup or salad and fresh assorted breads (even banana). Large selection of kids menu. Seldom does my son have steak as an option...with ice cream sundae too. My husband had "hog fish" served fresh any way you want it and continues to rave about it. This is a hidden gem.


Editors Note: New boat slips are now available for dockside dinning.
