My husband and I came here for lunch after his doctor’s appointment. It was our second time, and our son’s first. Both visits have been on Fridays. We always order too much because we can never narrow ourselves down to one entree each. We have gotten two for each of us and share both times. And we eat EVERYTHING- we have never left with a doggie bag. The service is always fantastic and the food is amazing. It’s clean, and our favorite drinks are the Hurricanes. The BEST I’ve ever had. We cannot wait to be able to go back!

A must for seafood. We went early 5:30) on a Friday. First come first serve. You see the enclosed deli counter with the freshest fish I have seen! And the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen...garlic and other! Two split the drunken shrimp appetizer that came with a small mound of a summer fruit salsa, the sauce was excellent. I had the lobster taco..fresh avocado and summer fruit salsa! Hubby had the tuna steak (medium) on the spicey side. Two drinks each, one app and 2 meals...120 incl tip. Service was excellent

Husband had the enchalidas, I had the BBQ shrimp. Both tasted very good. Service was great. Nice patios for outdoor comfort. We'll do it again.

We had never been there before. I was skeptical as I drove up to the small strip mall. We went inside and it was understated but very pleasant. We look at the patio which was very cute and sat out there.

I ordered the fried calamari and Chilean sea bass. The calamari was very tender, rather than super crispy, which made it extremely enjoyable. I assumed that the Seabass was not Chilean because, who sells Chilean sea bass in a restaurant for under $30? The answer is, these guys do. It was a generous portion and one of the tastiest preparations I’ve ever had. My wife had a nice salad and the seared tuna. It was good, but I definitely ordered better! My wife ordered tea after dinner, and they had a very good selection of surprisingly upscale teas.

I have to say that this was a true find. We will be back often.

Yesterday evening we joined friends for dinner at Lucky Fish, a new restaurant for all of us. The entrance to the restaurant is at the back of the parking lot so keep your eyes open for it. When we entered the retro-furnished dining room we were warmly welcomed by the hostess who asked our preference for seating and graciously walked us past the fresh fish counter (wow!), down a few steps to a small quiet area where we could have a nice conversation. Our drink order came quickly as we took our time reading and debating what fish we would order for dinner. The selection is very broad from shellfish, to lake fish, and onto ocean fish with a variety of preparations. We started with gazpacho that had just the right amount of spiciness that was balance by three slices of avocado and 4 fresh shrimp - it was almost a meal in itself. As we finished this delicious cold soup on a very hot summer evening the waiters arrived with our main courses - red snapper filet, Spanish style seafood paella, and Molcavete Mar Y Tierra, a wonder assortment of red snapper, scallops, shrimp, octopus and tenderloin tips served in a hot mortar stone bowl. The presentation of each dish was beautiful and a compliment to the delicious flavor or each unique ingredient. Silence hit our table as we slowly enjoyed the vast aromas and flavors. Wonderful! The portions are LARGE - enough to either share, or as we did, bring home for a second meal. We left full and content with plans to return soon. One caution - this is a seafood restaurant with very few non-seafood options.
