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.

Table was a little dirty. "Seafood Chowder" was a broth soup, not cream based (just FYI as we were expecting cream but I now realize chowder doesn't have to be). Fries tasted like they were reheated from yesterday or something (how else do you mess up fries? Not sure I've ever had bad/stale fries at a restaurant before). View was... More

We expected Garcia'sto be a nice local dive with the excellent fresh seafood. Instead we found ourselves eating at place with a tourist crowd quality food similar to that at many trap destinations, including Broadway in NY, Bourbon St. In NOLA, Ocean Dr in Miami. The crab bisque was heavy on a cheap cream, the Garcia'sto chowder was bland and... More
