Friendly staff, great ambience, and WONDERFUL FRESH SEAFOOD! If you are in the area check it out! Simple family business with no frills. Eat at a picnic table after ordering at the window. Wish there were more gems like The Fish House!

This was our first visit to The Fish House. Not only was the order taker so very helpful but also a regular customer who was waiting for her take out order.

The food here is fried, but great! We love to bring folks from out of town here and they love it! Love the picnic tables and friendly atmosphere sitting outside. Only open 3 days a week, so get there early, grab some grub and forget about calories for the day. Great pies too!! You won't be disappointed.

Ruskin is a small town with little to offer in the way of restaurants. This open air, roadside, eatery was a pleasant surprise. The fish was extremely fresh and perfectly cooked.

I usually get the soft shell crab and fish sandwich when I come here. The food is cooked perfectly and doesn't take long to go from the grill to your plate. The service is great and the people behind the counter always seem to have a smile on their faces.

Outdoor restaurant with picnic table seating. Come early as lines can get long to order and to pick up at windows. Very popular place for locals and tourists. Limited menu but food is usually very good.

I had catfish, shrimp, baked beans and coleslaw. It was all great! I tried my daughters chicken, fries and potato chips, it was all great food at a very reasonable price. The people were friendly and you get free refills on sweet tea. The only problem I had was I got full before I could try the awesome looking desserts.
