Located at the traffic circle in Lakeside Village shopping center, Fish City Grill knows how to prepare seafood. I have never had a bad meal here, and, while it is pricey by comparison to other Lakeland seafood restaurants, it is leagues above others. The atmosphere is not all that great, but come for the food and not the decor.

We always get the fish city sandwich with blackened fish .... it is awsome and by far my favorite fish in this area .... if not anywhere . The service has always been second to none. Mondays kids eat free ... try it ! ..

We had the fish and chips, the service was great and we went on a week night so was not busy at all. The mall itself has a lot of restaurants, this one while having a nice variety of fish dishes, is very expensive for what you get. You will get a good meal here, but just be ready for... More

Well walking by and took a look at the menu and saw Oyster Nacho's, so had to stop and check it out. Once inside was seat with in 30 second. I started with the Bill's Bloody Mary which was delivered under 3 minutes of ordering. I thought it was very spice which may not suit some people, but it was... More

I am a fan of fresh fish. I visit average once a week and I have never failed to be impressed. They have a chalkboard with specials that change everyday. They do creative things with sauces that surprise for a small local place. Service is excellent. Prices are moderate, an excellent value. I know of no place in Central Florida... More

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
