(Dinner 7-12-14) I was looking to take a friend to dinner for her birthday and she doesn't eat red meat so a quality seafood place was in mind. I had read good reviews of Garcia's over the years including in the recent New Times Best of Miami. I knew parking would be an issue as I had driven by the... More

We got lost going here, but were glad we persisted. The policeman how redirected us said we shouldn't miss it. Good grouper sandwich (they're famous for it). Good key lime pie. On the water with outdoor seating. Funky atmosphere

Cannot every say enough good things about this place. The service was fast and the food was beyond excellent. My husband said it was the best grouper he has had in forever but wished it was a bit larger, & I love their lobster bisque. We split an amazing key lime pie slice and finished it off with perfect café... More

Wow! this place actually buys seafood directly from the boats, grills it to perfection and serves it at a very decent, reasonable price! I highly recommend this restaurant!

We recently visited Garcia's whilst on holiday in Miami, we only found out about the place via a TV food journalist programme. This was slightly off the tourist track for us, as we were staying in South Beach, however it was well worth the trip. The food was extremely good and fresh, the place is unpretentious and the low prices... More

We went to Garcia following the great reviews and it was the biggest disappointment. The food is overpriced and, though it might be fresh, two of the dishes had the same can-taste tomato sauce. My 10 yr old ordered chicken tenders and they were awful. Not even the key lime pie did the trick. They allow smoking on the upper... More
