the food is consistently very good

we are locals and we love The Fish House's food. We very rarely eat in and nearly always call for take-out. Getting through on the phone can be a real challenge. During the busy season, they stop taking call-in orders all together. We understand that it's extremely busy when the snow birds are... read more

Sadly, they had sold out much earlier in the day. So ordered the fried, whole crabs. They were both small, with 1 claw each but cleaned and delicious. Also tried... More

Old school, local place. Most everything is fried. Our meal was fried catfish. The coating tasted great and it was nice and hot! Really liked it. Seating is outside. Think casual!

The Fish Hut is a great place to eat, food is cooked to order, you can eat on site or do take out, it is always very busy, it's only open on certain days. The menu is great and the food is incredible, possibly a little expensive but well worth the expense.

The only decent food in Ruskin. However, the seating consists of a picnic table. The prices were a little on the expensive side.

As you approach on what seems like a road leading to nowhere, this looks like a trailer with picnic tables at the side of the road. You order at the window and they cook your order. If what you are looking for is deep-fried seafood then this is your place. We had the scallop and shrimp plate - adequate portion... More

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....
