Obviously the view makes this restaurant! The food is ok, service is ok, BEST things are the drinks, apps and a lazy happy hour on their deck. Just remember u gotta drive home!

Typical waterfront restaurant menu. Fish items both main dish and sandwiches. Gumbo soup and seafood chowders etc.
Will all of the planned changes (going for an "Asian flavor" include serving fresh local seafood, as used to be the rule? Servers now say that shrimp (we asked specifically) is imported in frozen state--not local. She didn't know about grouper or oysters--both of which are available as local harvests and once that was the source for The Fishery. There is a fish market attached to the restaurant, but seafood there also is other than local. If you want fresh, locally caught shrimp or crab, hop across the parking area to the vendor (not part of The Fishery) where it always is available at very good prices. So--any plans to get back to fresh well-prepared seafood?
