The atmosphere is great. Best to have reservations, but we only waited about 20 minutes with a drink down on the river. I had the haddock sandwich and my husband had the turkey sub, both delicious. He had the french fries too, quite the big...order. The seafood trio appetizer was great also.More

Ate on a Saturday afternoon. Needed reservations, but quality of food would not have you expecting to make reservations. Fish and chips were meh, fries were the frozen crinkle cuts. Service was friendly but not efficient. One of our party ordered peel and eat shrimp...and they forgot about it. They were cleaning fish on a table about 20 feet from our table and you could smell the fish being cleaned. Not horrible but not the aroma I want during a meal. Went on a recommendation but one and done.More

Had a wonderful meal of friend haddock n chips. (Ff) with sweet coleslaw. Staff was very accommodating and concerned with our every need. Appetizer of clam strips done to perfection. Will return often.

We’re old acquaintances at Miss V’s…although it’s been a year or so since we’ve even there. Docked the boat and walked up, and we’re met with a very brusque “please wait till I seat you”. No problem. “How many?” Two. “Reservation?” No. “Let me see...if I can fit you in.” (Three tables vacant…and a fourth could have been if cleaning supplies weren’t occupying it! Ordered the crab cake sandwich…my wife said that if she hadn’t ordered it, she wouldn’t have known what it was by taste alone. She-crab soup…one of the signature dishes from way back…was bland and uninteresting. All in all, the frozen fries were actually the best part of the meal. Won’t be back until something drastic changes.More

We visited Miss Vicki’s for lunch for the first and last time. Parking is a disaster. When we walked up to the host stand instead of being greeted and welcomed we were yelled at for not having a reservation. Who would have thought you need...a reservation to eat at a dumpy boathouse. Next we are told fine you can sit but you have to leave in 1 hour and 15 minutes. Server was incredibly rude. Food was reheated frozen garbage. Under normal circumstances we like to enjoy our time on weekend lunches, order drinks and unwind. All we felt here was rushed and disappointed. What business owner chases away paying customers? Get it together Miss Vicki’s!!More

We used to be regular customers of Miss V’s but based on their changes we no longer will visit. We again visited this week however they still have not opened up bar seating or bar tables. They are possibly the last bar in Florida, inside...or outside to not open up all seating. They also still limit customers to a time limit while not utilizing all seats. The food is still very good but it appears they really don’t want to serve the customers that used to sit at the bar. With so many other good waterfront places in Holiday and Tarpon, I no longer see a reason to visit Vickies, which I will miss.More

First of all it is a small but awesome place. Wonderful location looking out at the Anclote River. We kayaked from the kayak launch area to the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks and back. So we were hot, hungry and thirsty! There is a sign that...says to see hostess which is normal. Yes they have a 1 hour and 15 minute limit as to allow other diners to enjoy it as well. There were 10 of us and they seated us at unreserved seats 5 at each table. Our drinks came fast as well as our delicious lunches. All of us were quite satisfied and hope to come back again.More

Recent reviewers seem to either be ignorant or have a political agenda that doesn’t allow them to acknowledge the realities of a restaurant dealing with the pandemic in a responsible way. Make a reservation using your phone or expect to wait and/or sit on a...bench or Adirondack chair. Safe and socially distanced environment. The food is what it is for a boatyard but always good. Grow up reviewers and act like adults or go to your favorite chain restaurant in a strip mall.More

First thing that happened is we walked up to a table, we got screamed at because we did not see the hostess first. Mind you there are no signs posted saying anything to help you know what to do. So I walk up to a...girl writing on a dry erase board. Then the owner herself yells at me to stay behind a kind I could barley see painted on the floor. We should have walked out right that second-but we had other friends there. So we we seated snd told we had one hour -as they had reservations coming. Once we sat down we decided we did not need to pay to be treated like crap. The sad thing is- we have gone there for years to meet friends who live nearby. I fought like crazy to keep this place open when it was almost closed a few years ago. I’m very sorry I did that. It was that same owner who treated my 88 year old mom and my family like crap yesterday. Good by Miss Vicki. Word of mouth travels fast.More

Omg what an absolutely HORRIFIC experience! Once seated we were told we only had an hour 15 minutes to sit at the table. Wow! NEVER heard that before! Placed drink order and before the waitress leaves to place order one of our party changes her...drink order and we were told “Only one change is allowed!l WTF?? Appetizers came - burnt - sent back. One hour went by and no food. No new appetizers! Seriously?? Waitress and manager says we still have to vacate the table even though we don’t have our order! We were told we could box up our food and eat our food on a bench. Wow! Absolutely the rudest and worst dining experience we have ever had. Avoid this place at all costs!More

Never in my life have I been greeted at a restaurant with the phrase: “You can only sit at your table for 1 hour and fifteen minutes”. What is sooo special here? The food is defenitely nothing to write home about. Most food trucks have...a better cuisine. Would it not have been from the charming bartender Bethel, this place would have been given a one star. And that star is for the view of the beautiful sunset on the river and not for Miss Vicky’s cooking skills. My visit will not be repeated.More

My wife and I have patronized this establishment numerous times across the years but this experience takes the cake. Went on a Thursday mid afternoon with out of town couple. Ate and drank several buckets of beer but was told by our waitress we had...to leave due to owners policy of time limit of one hour and 15 minutes at a table. Worst part was all the other tables where absolutely EMPTY! Even spoke with owners sister and she even pushed this rule. Who chases away paying customers. Nobody was waiting for a table. Never going back to this establishment. BEWARE!More

Nice off the beaten path outdoor hidden spot to catch the sunset. Ice cold beer and good munchies. Pleasant quiet crowd and friendly staff. Little divey Florida joint.
