There was a crowd at killer seafood, and with only six tables, we were worried about the wait. It turned out most of them were there for carry out, so we got to sit fairly quickly. The menu is spare--shrimp, fish, a burger. We had the catch of the day (grouper) and the house special killer shrimp. Both were delicious,... More

We stayed across the street for a month and this became the place we visited frequently. Food is outstanding and although most is fried, it is not greasy. Friendly atmosphere and staff and by far the best seafood in area. Definitely try tuna tacos and Killer bowl.

I knew I was getting seafood, I knew it was all deep fried and as far as that goes it was good but the batter doesn't have any flavor too it. Their home made sauces is whats killer here, try them all.

Food was excellent, but if you want a fancy seafood restaurant, this is not the place for you. The walls are covered with signed dollar bills, and it is difficult to avoid the loud music on the speakers. You order your meal at the counter, take a number to your table, and wait for the food to be brought to... More

Wouldn't think that there would be a plant based choice at a restaurant called Kiiller Seafood yet, had a delicious veggie burger and salad! Enjoy the atmosphere and everyone that works there!

So glad we ate here we visited this area in Sept. 2014. And all though we were a little throwed off by how you ordered, because when you walk in you just walk up and tell them what you want. And then you can find you a seat! It's not fancy service or a fancy resturant, but it was Great!... More

I do not go to this restaurant because of the service. They are way to smug and they need to change their frying oil once in awhile.

MS&KHMexicoBeach, Owner at Killer Seafood, responded to this review

Well, thanks for reviewing, and I'm sorry you do not care for our establishment. Being the owner and chef, I am concerned. If you have been here, especially during the simmer frenzy, you know how hard we work trying to please the hundreds of people we serve a day out of our 40 seat restaurant. There may be a time...

One recommendation from friends I decided to finally try the food. Tried it on two different occasions, both takeout for me and some friends. First time we all got the fish tacos. They were pretty good. I would go back for them again. The next day we ordered again. I wanted something different so I had the fish sandwich. Unfortunately... More

We have always dined at the beachfront spot a couple of blocks away when in Mexico beach. No more. This place more than makes up for the lack of a view by serving MUCH better seafood. We tried the fried shrimp and grouper. Fresh and tasty. Next time it will be the simmered shrimp. We tried the sauce and it... More
