Friends we were vacationing with had raved about the place, although they'd never actually been there themselves. Their family owns a condo just off the pier and had heard over and over how great the food was. We had a party of 7 and based on the physical size of the place, there was understandably a bit of a wait... More

Pretty darned good killer shrimp. Atmosphere is just ok and no frills. I like killer shrimp but the casualness and size detract from this place.

This is a top rated restaurant in Mexico Beach. The food is great and the prices are more reasonable than some of the other area restaurants. I had the Killer Bread bowl and my wife had the tuna tacos. Both were super-yummy. I'd definitely go there again but this time I'd get there at 4:30 for their 5pm opening.

I typically don't enjoy seafood, but the Killer Shrimp meal I ate here was delicious. It was a great balance of spices. Kevin, one of the owners (I think), told me it's spicy and they gave me a sample to try (since I'm not typically a fan of spicy food, either). But it's not spicy on first taste. Once I... More

Food was on par with fast food seafood...but way more expensive. Portions were small. Only one high chair for the restaurant. Hostess was friendly, waitstaff needs some training. I'd strongly suggest trying somewhere else.

Couldn't wait to get there! I'm addicted to their fish tacos. But you gotta get there early. The shrimp eaters in our group loved the grilled and fried shrimp. Lightly breaded, large shrimp. The food is always good. The service is "meh". They argued with my daughter while ordering about whether she said 1 grilled, 1 fried. Really?? But we'll... More

Killer Seafood is a must stop place when in Mexico Beach. It is well worth the wait. We were number 9 at opening, but the staff got us in as quickly as possible and were very nice. Waiting is not for everyone especially those with little patience, but the food is outstanding!! The Killer shrimp bowl is outstanding. Make sure... More

We just went on 6-25-2014 for the first time. First of all it does not open until. 5:00 p.m. for dinner. You better get there at about 4:30 because if you don't you will get to stand outside and get as fried as the food they serve at Killer Seafood. We got there at 4:45 p.m. and still were the... More
