This business is no longer a restaurant, just a seafood market. My wife bought some fish labeled baso at $7 a pound. She asked the clerk if it was from China, and the clerk didn't answer. I checked the internet, and there is no fish called baso. There is however a fish called basa; it comes from Vietnam and Indochina.

The fish was not labeled Baso, its says BasA on our price board. Sorry if the "a" looked like an "o". Since there is only two people that work here in this small establishment, myself (owner) and family member I highly doubt she was blatantly ignored. Since its a farm raised fish, there are fish farms all over the world... More

Since my last visit the restaurant (prepared seafood) side has closed. It's now a seafood market to-go only. Lots of fresh local shrimp & fish as well as from the great white north. Prices on the high side so 4 stars.

Simple Seafood is where I go for my fresh seafood. I have been going there for the past 3 or 4 years, when ever I'm in the need for fresh shellfish. Last time there I ordered fresh calamari and they cooked it for me to pickup on a later date. Perfect!

Great owners down to earth with great food. A little pricey, but good. Fresh. She is very creative and friendly. Fun to dine in but only a few tables. She accomodates everyone. Very humble atmosphere.

the place could definitely use a face lift. the food was blah, although one of our party liked the seafood chowder. they need to do a better job on their entrees, unless all you eat is fried food.

Considering the restaurant has been closed since June 2016, Im thinking you are confusing our closed restaurant with another. Also, when we were open for business we didn't serve fried food. We didn't even own a fryer. More

The seafood is very fresh & tastes great. It is a little more expensive than the grocery store, but worth it. The staff is very knowledgeable about where there seafood comes from & ways to prepare it. I purchased the Seafood Patties with lobster & crab in them. They were great at $4.99 each they were enough for a meal.... More

So, first, be prepared. This restaurant and market are a little hard to find and there is no bathroom inside. The bathroom is behind the building. Ours GPS couldn't find the address to begin with. It is next to a bait shop in what appears to be an old gas station. The restaurant side has only 4 tables, but they... More
