I am not a restaurant snob, in fact many times the best meals are found at little Mom & Pop places which arent fancy with plain tables and decorations. But to serve very mediocre fish in a place called the Fish House is inexcusable, Mediocre is kind. The Flounder was microwaved. Cajun style meant some paprika and pepper thrown on... More

We liked this place so much we went twice on our trip! Don't let the down home atmosphere fool you (some people like myself love that). The oysters on the half shell were fresh and cold. The fried shrimp, fried oysters, and grilled basa were cooked to perfection. This place is just like the rest of the town - no... More

Credit card machine was down not a huge problem just had to go to bank before we got seated. Service was great but we were disappointed in the food. Only place in town that had scallops on the menu ( thought we were there in scallop season), they were only so so. I had fried shrimp and really could have... More

I went here upon a recommendation of the locals. I ordered the grilled seafood platter with garlic butter seasoning. It took forever for our party to get our food and they weren't very busy. My seafood platter arrived and my food looked like it had been boiled instead of grilled and had absolutely no flavor. I added lemon, salt and... More

When someone thinks the food is overpriced in Mexico Beach then they should try eating in Kyoto, Japan lol. This (supposed) run down diner is clean, staffed with good people that are trying to give you the best, and the owner/cook is top knotch period. You can never please all of the people all of the time but you will... More

We stop the 1st day we were in Mexico Beach. I really think it was very good food with very fair prices. Read an review about overprice food. Perhaps this person this should have prices of one of the fast food seafood places. But it think it was very good and even went back to next night to try something... More

I thought i would be disappointed but I wasn't. Food was fresh, fast and very tasty. Although the building wasn't a "chain" style restaurant it wasn't bad. It is the old florida!! Service was great and quick. Listen to the locals and not paid contributors this place is really good!!

What can I say - overpriced food. Place looked a run down diner. Food was very average, but the price was quite high. I ordered the grilled Basa and was unable to eat it. Flounder was so-so. Shrimp tasted like it was something I would pull out of the freezer and dump in the fryer. However, they did have a... More

This was my family's first dining stop while vacationing at the beach. We were not disappointed in the least. No great views from here, although they are only a block or two from the beach, just very good seafood at reasonable prices. The place was packed with a July 4 holiday crowd, but we were seated and served in a... More
