They have raised their prices but not the quality of their food. A glass of house white for $6 is outrageous. Won't be back any time soon.

Can’t beat the view here. Fresh seafood and a fun, casual atmosphere. Matlacha is not fancy. Casual dress, laid back atmosphere and a water view.

Happened to be in Matlacha on Super Bowl Sunday. Most places were closed or closing, Sandy Hook was open so we tried it. Food and service were both good, especially my grouper.

I didn't see outside seating precisely. There's a bench where you can sit to watch the water but I don't think they'll serve you out there even though I saw people having drinks outside. I hope the management gives you a... More
