I was taken there by someone local who is very familiar with "the islands" after asking if I enjoyed Caribbean food. Its small, perhaps 30x30 in the corner of a strip mall with a Margaretville décor and vibe, fishing tournament posters on the windows and woven thatch "roof" at the bar. It was almost 1:00 on a Thursday and 90%... More

Another place which is great to eat at when in the area. They have a large selection of dishes to choose from and all are tasty. The orange dressing on the salad is to die for. They are not open at the weekends but so worthwhile going to.

This restaurant is the BEST in the Fort Lauderdale area. A true hidden gem!!! Fresh fish daily...the shrimp/scallop burger is to die for [so delicious]. I have brought many clients to this place and EVERYONE has returned. Pssst...do not spread the word so we still have a table to eat at.

Great food and awesome service! Highly recommend! Fish and crab cakes are a must! It's a hole in the wall, but totally worth it! Don't let the outside deter you from trying it!

Absolutely delicious. All menu items fresh made from scratch. We had melt in your mouth fresh calamri, fresh catch Wahoo, and a dish called St. Augustine baked scallops - yum! Best meal of our vacation. Closed weekends.

This place is a bit of a hole in the wall in a shopping center, but don't let that fool you. This place has amazing food! Just about any kind of fresh fish you might want and a generous selection of beer on tap and bottled.

The reviews were spot on. Delicious! The fish sandwich and fried shrimp lunches were right on the mark...definitely a whole in the wall... don't let that stop you!

After hearing others rave about Calypso's we decided to try it. Can I say that it is now our "go to" place every time we are entertaining guests for the weekend. Menu selection is great and the fish is always fresh catch. If your in the mood for casual dining with a caribbean flare, this is the place to go.

I love seafood! Calypso offers fish of the day for about $25 for a meal that includes salad and 2 sides. We enjoyed dolphin and wahoo, because these were new to us, one grilled and nicely seasoned, and breaded and pan fried.
