Great food at very reasonable prices. Excellent service and atmosphere. Very relaxing and opted to eat outside as it was unseasonably warm this time of year.

On the water which was nice but it took forever to get our meals. The prices were affordable. The food was ok but nothing very memorable. I would probably not eat here again.

I had heard from a friend that the fish stew was wonderful here, so I decided to try it. Yesterday was the perfect one to eat out on the deck and enjoy the view of the Inland Waterway. I can sincerely say that the fish stew was out of this world. I got the bowl rather than the cup. It's... More

We dined here recently while in the area. We were seated quickly and the very friendly young lady took our orders with a smile. I was a little tired of seafood and decided to try the pulled pork sandwich and homemade potato chips with a side of onion rings and my wife had the fish and chips. Our orders arrived... More

We came here for a weeknight dinner. Service was very good, and the view was great. You can see the boats on the docks. I had the blackened fish tacos, and they were fantastic. The cocktail list is not very big, but they have beer and wine. The menu didn't have too many choices, but they were delicious.

We arrived at 8:15 and there was no wait. Parked across the street and followed the smells. We had oysters Rockefeller, fish n'chips, and salmon dinner. My mouth is watering just recalling how delicious the battered Cod tasted dipped in their homemade tartar sauce. I hate hate hate tarter sauce, but for fun dipped my finger in it and then... More

After looking for a place downtown we decided to try the Fish House Grill for lunch. I had the fresh fish sandwich of the day which was blackened mahi mahi with curly fries. My wife had the tuna steak sandwich also with curly fries. Her tuna was very good and prepared as ordered, rare. My mahi had a great blackening... More

If you want a view of the boats and yachts, this is a place to go. It was a lovely evening so we chose to dine outside. We started with tuna bites and calamari appetizers, very good. We were a group of six, one having the Caesar salad with shrimp. The salad was fresh and he remarked that he enjoyed... More

We went here because it required only a block detour on the way to the beach. First we had trouble because our server didn't know we had been seated so another server had to go get her. This a local seafood place serving local seafood in fairly typical ways. We had the hot crab dip with toasted triangles and a... More
