We often come here for Bingo and their food is pretty average. It’s really a hit or miss for their extensive menu, we pretty much just get drinks their now. Occasionally have good events and music, but food needs improvement.

Salad and fish choices were good, as was our service. Skip the desserts, they are terrible! Nice atmosphere on a warm night.

Very nice restaurant and the service was excellent, but the food was not worth the price even in this location. Conch fritters were bland and dry.

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS FOR THE LARGEST TIKI BAR IN THE FLORIDA KEYS 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.
