Went for dinner on a somewhat cool night. They had the heaters on and the dining area enclosed. Comfortable enough. Great prices on drinks and food. It is a place by the water next to a fish company where I think the help unwinds after a day of fishing. No frills, just great food and drinks at a very good... More

Went here for lunch . Had the royal red shrimp appetizer. They were absolutely scrumptious. Dipped in melted butter you would swear you were eating lobster. Had blackened scallops you would kill for and Mac and cheese and hush puppies for sides . Time for a nap now!

We were told about the Cortez Kitchen by a local family… What a great recommendation. The atmosphere was great, staff friendly and the food fantastic. We arrived the day after the snow crab season started they were straight off the boat, you don’t get fresher than that. All I can say is that this is the place for snow crab.... More

We were driving around just to see what this area is about and found this restaurant - you have to be investigating to find it! It's on the fishing docks in Cortez Village (bottom of 119th St) We were there tonight and were completely delighted with our dining experience. We arrived at Happy Hour - beer (Bud light $1) and...

If you want eat seafood just off the boat in a very casual setting, this is the place. Not only is the food good, you can watch the boats and the Egrets, Herons and Pelicans that perch nearby. We were there for lunch. I understand they have live music on the weekend. A very fun place a very short trip... More

We went to this place just for a little "happy hour" fun. Pulled into the lot and there was hardly a spot left to park. We knew we were at the right place. The place was full of people of all ages having fun. They had a basket of wings for one of there happy hour deals ($4.50), very good... More

Went to the Cortez fish market looking to check out the fresh seafood and decided to get a bite to eat here. We are so glad we did. They weren't busy so we could sit anywhere we wanted and opted to sit outside. We were entertained by the birds all around the market and boats in the canal. Hubby and... More
