I had the Caesar salad with perfectly cooked blackened mahi and my husband had it in a fish sandwich..... great food, busy place, but good service. It was nice to eat outside on their deck after the Saturday farmers market.

Best seafood restaurant in Florida. Everything is excellent including the service. Ahi tuna is the very best...either as an appetizer or full meal.

Great seafood and steaks. I almost always order the days special if they aren't sold out already. They also have a variety of oysters to choose from at market price. The Miami Vice is a mix of conch and clam chowders. Good beers on tap and a nice wine selection as well. Its popular so expect a wait at peak... More

Always delicious. Sometimes there is a wait but it is certainly worth it. Fresh cooked food. Never disappointed. The lobster Mac and cheese is the best!

Every time we have gone, it's been wonderful. Some days we had to wait, but it's been worth it. The Miami Vice soup is amazing, the lobster mac and cheese is the best. The appetizers are enough for a meal! Outside seating is by far better than inside.

We started with the conch dip and the stuffed peppers. I had ahi tuna that was out of this world. My husband ate a seafood pasta dish he thoroughly enjoyed. One of my sons had shrimp scampi that he said was delicious. The other had fried shrimp -- yum! We sat outside and there was lovely live music -- mostly... More

The seafood pasta was amazing. Very good food and service. Loud inside because every seat was filled, but the food and the service was great.

We chose this place based on TA and Yelp reviews. We must have just had one of those nights. We waited for our table for approximately 45 minutes. No problem - we expected that. Ordered appetizer and meal soon after. Portabello mushroom appetizer was good and on time. Then - we waited and waited. People that were seated after us... More
