Mike did the catering for our welcome dinner (buffet style) and wedding reception (served hor d’ouerves and plated dinner). The paella is so good, and they make it in a giant pan on-site. Our wedding night, we did mahi and steak and got several compliments on how great the food was. Mike and his team were awesome! They made everything easy for us and worked with the party rental place to make sure everything was set up perfectly. They helped us pack up some leftovers we had from our welcome dinner, so we could enjoy them for days to come. He was on top of any concerns I had and personally came up to congratulate me and make sure everything was perfect on the night of. Highly recommend- great food, great people.

Mangrove Mike's Café & Catering did a phenomenal job catering our wedding. He was very flexible and understanding with all of our questions and made sure the night was just perfect. The food was cooked on site so everything was fresh, hot, and delicious. Our guests were very happy as were we!

Mangrove Mike's did an excellent job catering our wedding. From beginning to end they were responsive and professional. The day of the wedding the guests commented on how awesome the food was and how great everything came out.

Wedding Wire:

Food was AMAZING! The appetizers were delicious and I'll be dreaming of the conch fritters for weeks! Our buffet lunch was great, they forgot my rice pilaf and mixed vegetables so the only thing for vegetarians was the salad - but the food was sooo good that I didn't even realize that until the next day when my mom said something. The only thing we really wanted for food was a pig roast and Mangrove Mike's made that happen! They even came and got us before they carved it so we could see it in all it's glory (we cut the roast instead of a cake!) Mike himself was on site cooking and he and Jen and their team were absolutely top notch. My now husband said some of the food needed salt but he is a seasoning freak and almost always says that things need more salt and pepper. They boxed all the leftovers up for us so we were able to eat more fritters while going through our cards at night. Everyone I worked with from start to finish was incredible, easy to communicate with, helpful, flexible. I'd recommend them to anyone, anytime.

We had our dream wedding on 9-19-15 at La Siesta Resort. Mangrove Mikes was our caterer and they were beyond amazing. The quality of the food was A+ and their prices are very reasonable. Michelle helped us put together what we needed and even coordinated the rentals. We also hired the date of coordinator through them. Her name was Emily and she was on top of everything and made the day go by without any issues. If we're ever having a party in Islamorada again Mangrove Mikes would be our first call.

Wedding Wire:
What a great team of people! We were very picky about the good with my husband being in the culinary field, but they definitely lived up to or expectations. The appetizers were to die for. The mushrooms were my favorite. As a bride you don't get to eat much but they made sure to bring over a plate full of appetizer for us to munch on while taking pictures. Thank you guys for everything. We love you!

"When you have every guest come up to you and rave about the wedding food you selected, you know you did something right.  When every guests says that all aspects of the food experience were off the charts, you know the catering company is doing everything right!! We met with the catering company and had a pretty selective and diverse menu.  We weren't sure if they would be able or want to do such a diverse menu.  Not only did they perform our menu to our exact needs, they knocked it out of the park.  The staff was providing service with a smile....and constantly looking to refill and empty glass or hand out their amazing apps!

We have had several inquiries about this company since our wedding...oh, just 5 days ago.  A couple of specific guests were inquiring about their services throughout the South Florida. 

To have the opportunity to get married in such a beautiful destination as Islamorada and be able to have Mangrove Mike's Catering deliver an amazing food experience...was over and beyond our expectation.

This company didn't find happy customers....they found RAVING FANS!!!"

  "You have to go here!! Sooooo goood!

The best spot in town!  You have to come here!  Best breakfast and lunch options!  Every time we go Mike always has a smile and gives us a most generous welcome!  I loved the pressed turkey sandwich and tater tots and my fiancee loves the BLT and biscuits and gravy!  We also just tried the key lime pie and it is heavenly!  Thanks Mayor Mike for having an awesome place!"



"Delicious Breakfast

ABSOLUTLEY the best breakfast in town.  Prices are reasonable.  They will make to order breakfast IF there isn't what you want on the menu.  Very friendly, clean place.   Next door is a must see, to get either a picture frame made of crate or paiting.  Beautiful art."

"Great Breakfast and Quick, too!

We love to have breakfast at Mangrove Mikes!  Delicious and great service.  Often in a rush to eat and run to the boat for a day of fishing.  Cool place."
