Extremely busy but seated within 15 minutes. Ordered ahi tuna tacos which were really good. Crab cakes were good, but have had better. Although food was a little slow getting to us, it was hot and our waitress was very attentive and kept our drinks topped off. Great waterfront view.

My wife and I ate here on 20 Apr 17. The wife was eating light that night and had a cup of King Crab Soup and Crab dip appetizer. Both of which were excellent. I, on the other hand, decided on the “Special” Mahi with a sauce, Broccoli, and rice. Sounded good. But when it came out there was a... More

First things first... parking is at a minimum so take that into consideration upon arriving. Wait times are estimated and based on who you know, we personally watched "buddies" or the little waitresses being seated as they pulled up on their boats when we know they don't take call ahead seating. We waited an hour to be seated, then an... More

The out side of the restaurant looked friendly and interesting so we decided to stop. Fish House Grill has outdoor tables overlooking the marina and indoor dining with a rustic decor. The food ranged from sandwiches to meals with a variety that would appeal to all members of the family. Service was friendly and we all enjoyed seafood and fish... More

This massive spot has dining near a bar, tables indoors, and on the deck. I almost always choose the deck but one day it was being repaired so we sat near the bar at a hightop. The service was good even though the bartender had a long walk to us. We had salads, fish tacos, blackened grouper and lots of... More

We ate here cause it was within walking distance from our hotel. The reviews for this place were great. Unfortunately, the night we went so was a bus load of 28 people. The seat we had outside had a great view of the Waterway. Our server was also helping with the large party, so he wasn't very attentive to our... More

The location is wondeful. It is located on the water. The food was very good. We enjoyed the seafood. Sadly, the slow seating was our only negative. At point, I saw 9 tables that had not been cleared of dishes. The wait time could have been reduced if they had an extra bus boy. I noticed numerous people not waiting.... More

Have eaten here previously, and we were looking forward to eating outdoors overlooking the marina. However, the winds were too gusty, but the indoor dining was just as pleasant. The thai clam wrap was amazing and the fish tacos were also tasty.

This was an excellent experience for the entire family/party of eight, incl 3 teens & one pre-teen. The server, Ashley, was just as great as our host said she would be, and the meal was excellent- complete with a GF menu. It was a great meal, great service, and simply a grand experience!!!

My daughter and I had a very disappointing visit to this restaurant. We came on a Monday afternoon for cocktails and appetizers and it was relatively dead. The waitress arrived and asked us for our drinks orders and we ordered two bloody mary's. They were so spicy they were undrinkable. The appetizers then arrived and although the calamari was good...
