My family of five ate at Garcia's for dinner earlier this week. The view of the sunset was great and the resident heron (?) made for great atmosphere. I've had great meals at my share of seafood "joints" but this restaurant was tired and just...More

What a pleasant place to have lunch! The seafood dip was great. Conch fritters hit the spot. Grilled chicken and yellow snapper were delicious. The service was impeccable. Our drinks were never empty. The server anticipated our needs, before we could even ask he was...More

My wife and ate thanks to the suggestion of our Airbnb host. The service was very good. I had the lobster bisque and conch fritters. My wife had the seafood chowder and grill shrimp. They were excellent too. We will defiantly recommend this to people.

Quality of food and service is going downhill here. This place use to be awesome, not anymore. The Snappers are small and the prices are high. Let's face it, the view of the river is a nice perk, the restaurant decor is aging. Waiters are...More

Garcia Seafood Grille has been around since 1966 and is well known for it's fresh seafood. I have heard about it for ages, but this was my first visit. The exterior is nothing special and as you climb the stairs to the second floor you...More

Lots of great things about Garcia’s. Fish was fresh, river position and outside tables great and service very friendly. Fish paste welcome was nice surprise. Two things brought down the score - first the Caesar salad was perhaps the worst I’ve had and the server...More

Parking seemed very limited. We took an Uber out to the restaurant so I wasn't really paying that much attention to the aspect of parking. My guess is possibly Valet if super busy? Either way the place is definitely worth... More

Their valet parking is at their entrance. We didn't use it, though many did. I'm not 100% sure of the price but I think it's $10+tip. We found metered on- street parking in the same block. It uses a parking app you download... More
