The restaurant was bustling on a Friday night. A short 15 minute wait for a table, but well worth it. My husband had the fried seafood platter (shrimp, oyster, catfish) and I had the Andouille Chicken, which was awesomely outstanding!! Both dishes were seasoned very nicely-nothing bland about this food! The restaurant is casual, the server was attentive without hovering,... More

I had some out of town quests that we're staying a few days. We were looking for a quick place in Lakeside Village. We selected the Fish City Grill. Great choice! Our waiter was outstanding, fun, attentive, and knowledgable. We started with drinks and the crispy calamari lightly fried and served quickly. Then we each ordered a special, crawfish etouffee,...

We had eaten here a couple of years ago, and the experience was just ok and not really memorable. Recently, friends raved about it, so we decided to give it another try ... and we're glad that we did! We arrived long after the lunch hour and were surprised that the place was still filled with diners. Their menu had... More

My friends from Virginia and I made arrangements to meet in Lakeland, FL. They wanted seafood so I recommended another restaurant, which they declined. Since they were traveling they wanted something casual so I recommend Fish City, although I had never been there. Our waiter, Corey was fantastic! The food was good and we had a wonderful time together. I... More

It's gotten better over the last couple years, but I've never had anything that was so great I'd order it again. The food isn't bad at all, just not great. I typically only go to Fish City Grill when I have a gift certificate or something.

I have had better fish and chips at Mr. Fish. The waffle fries were interesting and flavorful. The clam chowder was good and loaded with clam. The lump crab sandwich was good and that comment came from someone who grew up in Norway. Service was very good. We'll go back and try some other menu items before we make a... More

For a casual seafood restaurant they seem to have an excellent menu of fresh seafood. They have a chalk board on the wall with the daily specials and that is usually what I order off of. All of my meals have been great. The one dish that stands out for me was the grouper with the bacon jalapeno gravy. It... More

Friends took us to Fish City Grill and we will be back! Excellent fish & chips. Also Kentucky Ale on draft! That is as good as it gets!

Have had several dishes here; the tacos really are good. The wait staff seemed a little clueless the last time we were here. For seafood, there are better places to spend your money.

I enjoyed my meal and the staff was very nice, but the system seemed disorganized. It wasn't very busy, but every single employee was running full-tilt and barely keeping up.
