What a great place. Amazing fresh fish you can take home or they'll cook for you right there and eat. I had the grilled swordfish on arugula. Grilled perfectly! Excellent portion sizes for lunch. Definitely worth trying. I'll be back

We were amazed at all the fresh fish selections. Luckily, they serve lunch from 11-2 and we had an amazing Mahi Mahi Blackened Sandwich. This is a cute little local spot where everyone is friendly! Loved it.

I was invited here by a friend who is a regular customer. It is a simple storefront fish store in a mini-mall which has some tables and chairs. All the fish is on display in cooler cabinets, one glance at the fish showed that it was the very best quality and in prime condition of freshness. I ordered the incomparable... More

This is a seafood retail store that will cook anything for you that they have. They have half a dozen small tables to accommodate you. The food that you will be served is exceptional.

When we vacation in Fort Lauderdale this is our first stop for fresh seafood. The seafood is always fresh and there is a excellent selection. The staff is great and will skin and/or debone to your liking. If you want they will also cook you seafood for you. This is the only place to get your seafood!

We had lunch here yesterday and the fresh fish, muscles, soft shell crabs and shrimp selection is plentiful and you can choose the way it is prepared. The service was also very good and the meal was enjoyable. We will definitely be back to enjoy lunch again soon.

We only eat seafood from Finster Murphy. Always fresh, always interesting choices, always good. My wife's sole source for seafood. Lunch is simple and a pleasure because the fresh seafood is turned into nice dishes at noon.
