We were recommended this place by locals we bumped into and I'm so glad we went. Fantastic fresh seafood, cooked well, and in a great sunset watching spot. Loved it. The only disappointment was we didn't discover it earlier in our holiday!

After a holiday in which we’ve struggled to find great eating experiences, we came across this place thanks to a tip from a local. No-nonsense, fresh seafood at reasonable prices and in a nice dockside setting. I wish we had found it earlier...

Been buying Cortez special, shrimp and scallops for like 10 or 15 years. Got it tonight and could not believe the shrimp size. Used to be so big and scrumptious. Took 2 or 3 bites to finish one. Now I feel I’m eating popcorn shrimp....More

We try to get out to Star Fish Co. every year when we visit this area. The dockside restaurant has a fish company atmosphere with fishing boats docked nearby. The dock has several picnic tables some under a canopy or umbrella. It is always busy,...More

You hit them on a bad night. The servers were super friendly to me and my fam. I am sure they would have taken care of you. I also recommend a second (or third) beer.
