It took us forever to finally eat here because of our schedules, and after all the wait, we were disappointed. First of all, we didn't realize everything was fried. Second, the breading, which is on everything is bland. I don't like seafood so I had the chicken strips but my husband had the grouper. Both dinners were just small bites,... More

Never disappointed. The fish house sandwich is a classic, their combo seafood platters are also delicious! Don't leave without a homemade piece of pie!

The shrimp was delicious and the homemade chocolate cake was delicious. The wait was long and the chicken had no flavor and was dry. Great gathering place though.

Excellent fish sandwich. So large and generous and the flavor is to live for! We go there often and have had the full dinners as well with those being excellent too.

Best fish in the south Tampa area. Always a big draw. Have to get there early or take the chance of them running out. Today arrived at 5:15 pm & they were already out of catfish. Had to settle for grouper at no additional charge. Portions are always large. Reasonably priced. Doesn't look like much when you drive in, but... More

Worth a little drive and being with a community of folks just enjoying the relaxed atmosphere & good seafood. About everything is fried and tasted fresh to me. I got the Captain's platter and being more of a shellfish fan, was surprised that the fish was my favorite part. Delicious!! This place is VERY busy and open only Thu thru... More

The best fish in the Tampa bay area in my opinion. Great prices, you get great portions and sit outside with the rest of the people there enjoying the Florida Outdoors. Reminds me a lot of

If you like seafood, cheap, this is the place. Only open Thursday thru Saturday, it's a real,treat to sit out in the open on picnic tables and enjoy shrimp, clam strips, scallops and more, with great sweet tea to have with it. You can also take it home, call in an order, if you so desire. Definitely worthy of the... More

This was a surprise!! Food was very good and plentiful for the money. We could not believe the crowd this place draws. If you judge this place by looks you won't stop, but check the make of the cars & vehicles in the parking lot, before you drive by.
