Approach

The main channel from the ICW would be Dinner Key Marina Channel, well marked.

From the north: Follow the markers for the Intracoastal Waterway going SOUTH. This will take you under the Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge. Continue south in the ICW passing green marker #71 . Right before statute mile 1095 on the ICW you will see a marked channel to starboard that runs alongside a spoil island. The channel will be north of the island. Towards the ICW there is a flashing red marker which has a '2' on it. The channel is beyond it and has no flashing lights. The makers begin at the tip of the island. Remember to stay well within the boundaries of the channel, as the depths to the south and north of the channel are shallow. At the end of the channel you will see on the port side of your bow a restaurant with outdoor seating. That is Scotty's Landing. If you pass the spoil island you will see another channel to the south of it, which runs alongside it also. That is the entrance channel to Dinner Key Marina and you can reach Scotty's from there also. The very first marker of that channel is a flashing green marked '1.' Its markers begin far out from the island. If you take this channel, when you reach the flashing green marker '15' turn towards starboard and around the docks of Pier 1 of Dinner Key Marina. Scotty's Landing is behind Pier 1.
From the SOUTH: Follow the markers for the Intracoastal Waterway going NORTH. Continue north until you pass Statute Mile 1095 . You will see a large anchorage and a spoil island. The marked entrance channel for Scotty's is north of the spoil island, on your port side. Turn into the channel, remembering to stay well within the boundaries of the channel, as the depths to the north and south of the channel are shallow. At the end of the channel you will see on the port side of your bow a restaurant with outdoor seating. That is Scotty's Landing. There is also a marked and lit channel to the south of the spoil island which leads to Dinner Key Marina. You can reach Scotty's Landing by heading down that channel, and when you reach the flashing green marker '15,' turn towards starboard and sail around the docks of Pier 1 of Dinner Key Marina. Scotty's Landing is behind Pier 1.

Reviews for Grove Key Marina
Fuel service only, 2014-12-28
Captain: , Port Everglades (525)

Very pleasant attendant, contact only by cell phone .. no VHF.
Competitive prices for diesel $3.90 on 12/19/14



No Water REALLY!, 2014-11-23
Captain: , north east (10)

After filling tanks with diesel fuel, I was told I could not top off The boat’s water tanks. Talked to the manager who said the slipHolders would get mad as they pay for it. She refused to give or Sell water for the boat, then pretended to call around to see if another Marina would sell me some. No they would not, she said. I found water Nearby at Matheson Hammock, dock hands were Great and I Showed my appreciation for not having to waist any more time. I will never go back to Grove key marina




Poor Signage, Poor Information = No Sale, 2014-06-16
Captain: , Placida, FL (276)

Walked to the (unmarked) office from Dinner Key to inquire about depths at the fuel dock before bringing the boat over from the morring field. Woman that the desk had no idea, man in the office advised that "it depends on the tide", "it's deeper at high tide, but probably 4 to 6 feet". Really? Water depth varies with the tide? And you don't know the depth at your own dock? Thanks, but no thanks. We went next door where they knew the depth and had nice clean docks with canvas on the pilings and professional people in the office and on the docks.



Good service, 2014-02-28
Captain: , Key Largo (392)

In and out with a quick refuel.. Service was fast and pleasant.

Minor annoyance that they didn't answer radio channel 16



Outboard engine repair, 2013-06-11
Captain: , Newport, RI (230)

My freshwater pump and thermostat failed on my 2000 15HP Johnson two stroke. I called every outboard repair facility in Miami looking for somebody who would come to the Dinner Key Marina to fish it onsite. After failing about nine times, we pulled into Grove Key for fuel and asked the marina office if they serviced Johnsons. Thankfully, they did. This guy was incredible. Not only did he repair and clean the engine to like-new condition, but he took the time to teach me and show me how to repair everything. Prices were very very reasonable and we took good care of him. For fuel and fixing my dinghy engine, I give it five stars for customer service and quality.



Ethanol gas?, 2012-05-30
Captain: , miami (33)

Staying long-term next door with motor yacht at Dinner Key Marina means I usually get gas here or next door at Shell.
Here they appear to have automotive 89 with ethanol gasoline. Very dirty facility but competitive fuel pricing (for area).
I usually pay much 10-15% more for Shell next door because it is non-ethanol and appears to be well-run.



fuel dock service, 2011-05-03
Captain: , Cambridge, MD (71)

Good fuel dock, no docking assist. Had to go to dockmaster's office for someone to help fuel despite being in plain view of dockmaster's office, and calling on phone to announce arrival. Service was peasant and fast once we got someone's attention. Diesel was 4.50/gal.
