Justicia Socail is a local fisherman's coop restaurant naturally specializing in seafood. Fresh everything. Want lobster? You'll walk down to the bay which practically comes right into the restaurant, the waiter will haul out a large crate of live lobster, pick one out and enjoy. We see lots of local people eating here as well as tourists. It's just south... More

I liked this place. My husband loved it. He got the grilled fish, I had fruits la mer which included octopus. Discovered I don't like octopus, it's a texture thing. Rest of my food was good. Laid back place though, nice vibe. Not their fault I didn't ask enough questions. I'd go again but order differently.

If you are looking for fresh seafood, this is the place. It's not fancy by any stretch of the imagination, but don't let that fool you. This place is one of the top 2 places on the island to eat fresh fish! It sits right on the ocean and the fishing boats are tied to the dock or on the... More

You know the fish is fresh because as you walk through the enclosed portion of the restaurant you can smell the fish guts. Outside it is rudimentary but interesting as you are right by the fishermen's wharf and watch the Pelicans mooch and the Frigate Birds steal. The prices are very reasonable and the fish very fresh. We just didn't... More

We had our first meal at this restaurant. The service was very good and the atmosphere was great - sitting along the water watching the fishermen come and go. The fish here is as fresh as you can get. Delicious and very reasonable.

Sitting just South of the ferry dock this place might be over looked by average tourists. A simple patio is right on the water. Fishermen land their boats within a few feet of you or are busy mending nets. The place is a favorite of locals and a few visitors who savor fish cooked to perfection.

We have noticed this place when we leave of the ferry and always wish we would have tried it... so the year made it a point. So glad we did. The fish was very fresh and well prepared. The best price on coconut shrimp and they were delicious, especially with the spicy/fruity sauce they serve. The shrimp cocktail was excellent... More

The food was fresh and well prepared. I loved it that many of the tables were filled by local families eating out. Great civechy! However, margaritas were served in very small glasses and not as good as others on the island.

We ate here twice. The inside dining room is a bit too brightly lit for us but the patio is perfect overlooking the fishing boats. We had fish tacos and ceviche. The best!
