Went here for lunch today. It looks a little on the rough side but that is no indication of what the food is like. The fish is really good tasting and fresh and a very reasonable price. It is worth a stop if you like fish.

Stopped here today to try out their all you can eat fish and shrimp. This is sea bass they get locally (not imported talapia crap). Started off with blackened fish and shrimp. Was very good. Then tried the fried, and it was lightly coated. Again very good. Then went with grilled. It was good, but not great. Finished off with... More

The server was very attentive, service was very fast, food (all you can eat Shrimp) was great. The free salsa/chips were different that most but really tasty. Used to be the Lost Gallion which based on our experience a number of years ago is good that it got lost. So we thought we'd try out the Rincon Veracruzano and we... More

The vegetables and corn are delicious, but the fish and shrimp are excellent. The best is that they'll serve you more until you say you're done. In addition, order the lemonade.

Fresh fish, shrimp, and a variety of other choices served in baskets and absolutely DELICIOUS. For a few more bucks, they even have an "all you can eat" option on shrimp, served 6 ways. The dining area is very small, but you will not be disappointed with the food. Eat here on your way to the island.

Hair under the fish so the was no way it didn't come from the back like that. Waiter very rude saying no women were in the back which was a lie...We clearly saw waiteresses go back there with no hair net. We didn't get any type of discount even though it grossed us out and nobody ate. 4 adults 1... More
