Service was a little slow but food was good. I ordered the "Mile High hot pastrami & swiss", thinking I'd get a NY deli kind of loaded sandwich. The name was QUITE misleading as it wasn't a very thick sandwich at all. But it was...More

I had the "Catch of the Day" dinner last night. The preparation was great, as were the seasoned French fries. However, the portion of fish was very small and thin (see photo). Not even 5 ounces. Price including 1 cola was over $26. I should...More

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.
