A quick review, since we already wrote one this summer: Visited for lunch with the out-of-town folks this time. Again, fish was incredibly fresh and flavorful. Between this time and last, we had the grouper, and both red and mangrove snapper. I personally liked the red the best. Quick overview: basically a fish market, no-frills restaurant, a few tables, they... More

Excellent service, very helpful, incredibly fresh fish. Awesome Crab cakes! We visit every time we are in Cape Coral. We didn't eat at the restaurant, we bought the fish and cooked it at home. It was excellent.

Andy's is really a fish market that also prepares a couple items daily for guests wishing to eat a fresh-cooked meal. Our choices were crab cake or red snapper. We had the snapper sandwich, blackened. You seat yourself outside (there's a few no-frills tables waterside) and the guy running the front counter cooks it for you and brings it out.... More

Interesting place. It is a seafood Market with no menu so I did not realize they serviced food until after I had eaten elsewhere. The market is great. Good options of fresh seafood of which I purchased several thing that were all great. Will go back to try the sandwiches.

Small local fish market with two tables inside and a few picnic tables outside on the back bay. We always get fresh fish to-go but have never eaten there so we decided to try it. They have two choices on the menu (crab cakes or grouper sandwich) with coleslaw. The crab cakes were excellent and all meat!! We had some... More

First, the grouper sandwich was wonderful -- generous, juicy, and tasty. No one in my party ordered the crab sandwich, but when I return to Andy's I'll certainly try it. The place was jumping - lots of customers for fresh fish to take home for dinner as well as diners. Apparently Andy's also has a truck that is driven into... More

I suggest you call before coming as we drove half an hour one time only to find out that they were short staffed and not serviing. A bit pricy but you are paying for the food... More

We had some of the best crab cakes and grouper at Andy's Island Seafood. Yes, the menu consists of two items because they are catching their seafood fresh daily. Yes, it is a little expensive for the serving size. And yes, it is totally worth it. We watched dolphins right by the dock as we enjoyed our sandwiches in the... More

This is the pace to go for fresh, just off the boat raw shrimp. But they also serve a couple of items at two small tables inside, and a few picnic tables with umbrellas that overlook the dock and part of the harbor. Only choices were fresh grouper sandwiches, prepared in two styles, or a crab cake. Go for the... More
