Boondocks Miniature Golf Reviews
We have had many great rounds of Putt Putt here. It is a nice, challenging course that is kept up nicely. It is hot in the summer but there is plenty of shade and fountains to keep a cool breeze. I wo... more »
This is the only mini golf place in the Keys. It was fun but the course wasn't very elaborate. No windmills or obstacles to challenge you. But it was fun. They have a Bar and Grill with a large menu. ... more »
What a fantastic spot! Great atmosphere and an amazing mini golf course! One of the nicest I've played. The guy working the mini golf was very personable and friendly. Highly recommend. more »
Visiting the keys for my husband's birthday and we're trying to eat only at local, unique restaurants. Boondocks had good reviews so we decided to try it. The hostess told us the wait was 30 minutes to an hour, but we'd be served right away if we sat at the bar. The first thing we noticed was the woman sitting next to us at the bar. She was closing out her tab, and telling the girl at the bar that she'd had the worst service of her life. The other bartender had apparently been rude to her. We thought she was being a bit extreme. We placed our orders. And then waited close to an hour to get our food. The bar is close to the kitchen window, and we watched as orders piled up, not getting served. I suspect they were understaffed, as the restaurant was busy, but not especially busy (there were plenty of empty tables). Finally our food came out. We'd ordered two steaks rare--what we received were well done. My husband's sides weren't what he ordered. Other than when we'd initially ordered no one came to check on us, and we waited so long, there was no hope of correcting the meals. Ignoring how the steaks were cooked, they were tough, chewy cuts and poorly seasoned. The veggies were good (so that's something). The icing on the cake was when I realized there were bits of paper in the bottom of my cup. My husband was worried someone dropped it into my cup, but I suspect it was in the ice. As we were leaving, another party was trying to coming in. The hostess told them there was no way they'd get served because the restaurant was too busy.
I don't usually write a bad review but tonight is an exception. Upon arrival we were directed to the bar area for our dinner experience because the dining room was closed at 8:00 PM. After ordering stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer as well as a lump crab salad, followed by an entree. This order was made clear to our server who also repeated the order back to us. Around the time the appetizer could have been expected the entree arrived. It was not our server who brought it, I said that it must be a mistake because we ordered an appetizer as well as a salad. That server left and moments later returned with the salad and appetizer leaving the entree the entire time. I asked if they had an order that food was placed because we should not have received the food in that order. She looked at me bewildered. Our server cane by moments after apologizing for the way the food came out. No one even tried to rectify the problem and after the meal was done we asked if they at least have a military discount. She replied no. So not only does this establishment not recognize the military or it's officers, they won't even rectify a bad order of service. Nothing more needs to be said.
The food was very good and the service was great. I'd like to give 4.5 stars for the food. It was good, but not the best I've ever had. Not to say anything bad about it. The atmosphere is fun. You are "inside" but outside all the time. It is like a giant tiki bar with the thatch roof. A fun place with Mini-Golf (albeit expensive mini-golf). We will definitely keep it on our short list for places to return to.
Boondocks is as they say in The Boondocks. About the 27 mile marker on US1. It's an out-of-the-way place roadside Attraction with world-class mini golf. Well world-class mini golf for the keys if you're into that kind of thing. A place to take the kids and get away do something different. Food was great, the rib surprise the hell out of me I thought they were going to be dry and boy was I wrong. The soup was crab and asparagus do yourself a favor and get that, it is nothing but pure awesome. The lobster mac, another awesome dish. Stuffed mushrooms mushrooms, potato salad with a special twist ranch dressing that was awesome, and asparagus. Not to mention that world-class margarita. If you drive into the keys or from the keys are you just want to take a little road trip to The Boondocks stop by they will treat you right.
After moving from Key West to Ramrod, we thought we would miss the selection of restaurants. Boondocks more than makes up for the quantity with quality. The service has been great and the food was excellent the two times we've eaten here. The specials are always unique and well executed, just look at their instagram page! I think the prices are just right without being too expensive for the Keys. It's also nice to be cooled off with a breeze under the tiki without being blasted by air conditioning. When we have family visit, we will definitely bring them here instead of making the trek into Key West for mediocre food at a premium cost.
