Such fun was our vacation trip to Marathon Key, which is when we discovered catch fifty three. The restaurant sits right on Tarpon Creek, on the upper side of Sadowski Causeway. You will love the food, and it is really nice inside. The restaurant is set up to be all tropically tiki style, which really goes nice for a waterfront restaurant.
The pulled pork sandwich is special. Has loads of fancy dishes, wine, draft beer specials, and is a nice place. We had fun here.
Right on mark was the gulf shrimp pizza and they make a veggie pizza too. The french fries are excellent here, with a little sea salt. There is plenty of boat docking space to tie up. Yeah to a waterfront tiki bar.
I am following the slow cooker beer pulled pork recipe. The recipe I found from allrecipes website was highly rated and included one can of beer! Yes beer, with pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, but the beer ultimately gets poured out after eight hours of cooking.
At that point you put the pork roast back in the cooker and add the barbecue sauce, then cook for one more hour! It should be just like the tiki bar slow cooker barbecue restaurant.
The wood burning oven is the main reason the food is so good here. You cannot go wrong with one of the pizzas, it is the top pizza on the island. Everything is patio style, with an open air dining room. A very inviting place to relax and have a special cocktail from the bar.
There is a fancy restaurant at our hotel in Marathon called Catch 53! Yeah! Yeah! They serve fancy pizza, salads and cuban sandwiches. The bar in Marathon for gulf shrimp pizza. The decor is tiki-chic inside and it is nicely placed on the waterfront. I can't wait to go chow for dinner again at Catch 53. There are so many good restaurants in Marathon, plus the bonus of Key Colony Beach!
