Very tasty! Big portions. Fresh seafood. Great place to eat. Sit at a picnic table. No beer or wine served. Didn't give it five stars because everything is fried. No grilled or blackened options....

Not sure what all the fuss is about. I would not drive to this place as a destination. I guess if I lived in Ruskin however more than likely not. It is basically a food truck that is stationary in a parking lot with zero ambiance. You are in a parking lot. It is cooler than you would ever expect... 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.
