Three of us ate here on Sunday - our first visit to the Fisherman's Village en route home from Sarasota to Miami. The village is great and conveniently located five minutes west of I-75. It has loads of fantastic boutique shops! This restaurant got the highest reviews on TA so we decided to eat here. The service was quick and... More

We're definitely coming back again to the Village Fish Market at Fisherman's Village!! The food and service were great and the water view (including an entertaining dolphin) is outstanding. We were there for lunch and the Red Grouper sandwich with fried zucchini (or potatoes) was fantastic. There are 12 beers on tap along with full bar service. Outdoor seating has... More

Waterfront table, outstanding menu and variety. I had the pick four seafood platter, shrimp, oysters, Cod and Sea Scallops. Plenty of food and cooked to perfection. Very light batter. Wife had the Salmon and she said it was excellent. Will definitely put this restaurant on our monthly rotation. Waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable. Made for a very enjoyable evening.

Waterfront views, extensive menu and seafood is wonderful. Watched part of the Pirate's festival from our seat. Nice people and wait staff, even though they were extremely busy.

The restaurant is in the open air Fishermens Village, We had dinner here on a Friday night – they have live music on weekends in a courtyard just outside the dining area. We chose a table overlooking the stage because we wanted to enjoy the music. The band was very good, but our table was not the best location for... More

Very tasty seafood. I had the red grouper sandwich (broiled). It was a little on the salty side but still quite tasty. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the edamame salad was. Be careful of the all you can eat fish and chips though. The fish and chips on the menu uses cod but the all you can eat... More

I dined outside with a group of my friends. We were seated with a nice view of the water, and our server Angie came and took our order. When the server came back to the table with the food, she had several plates lined up on the inside of her arm. As she distributed the plates, we were quite dismayed... More
