Best Seafood around

My wife and I visit south Florida once or twice a year for a week or two. We always make a visit to Calypso for their seafood. It is always fresh, priced fairly with excellent service. This last time we ordered the oysters Rockefeller (wow), the lobster and grilled wah-hoo (sp?) ....all were... read more

After seeing all the great reviews for this restaurant, I had to try it. I was not impressed. The prices are very high for what you get.

Hole in the wall joint in a non descript strip mall; amazing fresh seafood. I had the whole yellowtail - really, really good stuff. Nice waitstaff, restaurant is always buzzing. Not the place to go if you are looking for views or ritzy atmosphere - go here if you are wanting great seafood.

The fish selection was limited, portions small. $8.95 for a so - called Caesar salad, which was just lettuce with a few sprinkles of parmesan and minimal, tasteless dressing. Shrimp and corn fritters were good, but also overpriced.

About four times a year I am in the vicinity of Calypso and always plan on having lunch there. My favorite is the cracked conch either fried or grill and both are excellent. The cole slaw is a great side with the conch. The place is very busy at lunch but the service is prompt and the staff always have... More

We stayed in Pompano Beach for a week and ended up going to the Calypso twice. Like the title says, if I lived in Pompano I'd be there all the time. My wife and I sat at the bar both times, the bartender could not have been nicer, knew the menu and specials from top to bottom, and made great... More

I had never been to Calypso, but it came recommended. I was looking for a local place, no chain and Calypso was what I had hoped for. Calypso is in a non-descript, somewhat run down mini complex, which in my mind adds to the allure. Atmosphere was casual and friendly. It was a Wednesday night and the restaurant was busy... More

The seafood was very fresh and delicious. Prices were $22-$30 per entree which included 2 sides and very fresh salad. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

I went in for dinner on a Wednesday night and it was busy! I sat at the bar and had the calamari app and the stuffed shrimp for dinner. Food was perfect and service was great. True hidden gem. Prices were also very reasonable for fresh fish.
