My wife who has to work in a Marathon classroom from time to time was introduced to a cheap and cheerful lunchroom in the city.
Hurricane is more than a place to eat food. A "lounge" in Dixie is not just a place to sit, but a place to sit and drink and you have to be 21 to do that. You can vote at 18 though, which I think generally, is a bad idea.
If the fish isn't marker enough for this place on Marathon's endless strip, check out the other big fish sign at the other end of the restaurant/bar.
We drank tea, which in Dixie is a cold drink with ice cubes and stuff. There was television and a pool table in the room which I think generally is a bad idea but lunch made it worth it.
My wife figured this was an excellent way to enjoy the good medical news we got that her foot wasn't actually broken. And for half the copayment at the doctor we got lunch. For two.
The menu was long, sandwiches, platters and fish but we hadn't had ribs in a while so we indulged.
I loved the mixed plates and the waitress with the English accent, similar to mine, but we both affected not to notice. It's what English speakers do. "Where are you from?" is the most asked question in the Keys and the most tedious. We enjoyed our sensible portions, and our own company.
I liked this place, low key, funky decoration and unpretentious food. Good value in a town devoted to that very earthy concept.
