I have been going to this miami staple for over 30 years, the shrimp I ordered came dripping with oil, and the stone crab claws were less than stellar. It pains me to write such a poor review, but when monty's in coconut grove serves up a better meal, than garcias, you know something is up. Pass this one by,... More

very fresh seafood, great customer service. Bartender was awesome, very good drinks. Whatever you order the drinks are well made, the portion is customers choice. My shrimp was very fresh and good flavor. The seafood spread was fresh very tasty. The grilled grouper was good, and the side of mashed potatoes is a nice choice. The staff was very accommodating,...

We were a party of three and sat upstairs on the rail outside overlooking the river. Other reviews lay out the land, a small market downstairs, valet or meter parking around the streets. I did not actually use it, but it looks like they do have an elevator and ramp if needed. So you have to accept some realities -... More

Great seafood along the Miami River. Grabbed dinner before a Heat game. Conch fritters, grilled shrimp and stone crabs ( very good but a bit pricey for the stone crabs). Service was very pleasant as was sitting on outdoor patio.

I've been here a few times. The seating by the Miami River is great and the food always seems to be excellent. Very close to downtown Miami and not easy to find but well worth the trip. Great prices too. Highly recommend this place.

garcias is a classic near the Miami river, they sell fresh seafood to go and have a venue that has evolved into two floors, the first floor is rather relaxed and open, too close to the river. upstairs feels like old Habana. food is great the crab is really fresh, the chowder is spectacular and the dolphin sandwich a must....

Just today we had lunch in our favorite seafood spot in Miami. We have been going to Garcia's for several years and it NEVER fails to please us. The seafood is so fresh and prepared just the way you would want it . They prepare everything with the seasonings and flavors of Cuba. We always choose to dine outdoors right... More

We visited Garcia’s for the first time on a week night at about 6:30 pm. When you enter, you are actually entering a very small “market type” setting with some counter space if you choose to eat downstairs. The actual restaurant is upstairs. You can choose between eating indoors, or on a covered outdoor patio space with high top tables.... More

I go to Miami a lot and every time I have to visit Garcia Seafood Grille at least once. The seafood is fresh and they have some pretty good appetizers especially if you like conch, then you are in luck. However what I really like about the place is the atmosphere. Seating on deck which is must, watching the boats... More

A seafood grill and fish market - the fish is very fresh. This is a busy place and slightly chaotic but good fun with lively, good humoured staff.
