Good seafood, great service, reasonable prices!

Very good seafood at reasonable prices. Extensive menu and great service. My fried oysters were crispy on the outside and tender and succulent on the inside.

I have eaten here twice in the last week. Saturday had the blackened redfish and black beans and rice special every saturday, that I heard about over a year ago. It was perfectly done, large piece of fish perfectly prepared. Also had blackened gator chowder which was also excellent. Site is nicely decorated, the service was super.

We were on a short vacation and wanted fresh seafood. Driving around the area, we found this little place tucked into a strip mall. Almost passing it by, we smartly decided to stop. I am so glad we did! There was no wait but the place was packed. The staff were friendly, food came out quickly and it was absolutely... More

I am visiting the area and am a seafood lover. Visited here with family initial, but I am HOOKED(sorry). Ashley is my favorite and most attentive waitress, greeting me with a bright smile throughout my meal. Everything I have tried on their large menu so far (except the slaw) has been great including the chowders, shrimp and grouper. Very reasonable... More

Stopped in for dinner on a Monday night in August, and there was a twenty minute wait. That speaks volumes. The place in worth the wait. Service is pleasant and efficient. Food is great and prices are very realistic. Mondays fish and chips special is only 6.99. This is a great family owned business and it seems all employees take... More

I stopped in for dinner and ordered fish & chips. I was served ONE VERY THIN PIECE OF FISH. It was kind of strange because most of the fish was seriously overcooked (probably because it was so thin) and at one end of the fish had curled and it must have sat above the grease since it was almost raw,...

Mean Dean's Fried Seafood Platter for $19 was an absolute disappointment. Everything except the fries were so over cooked. The sea scallops were like rubber, clam strips were not as chewy as the scallops and the Alaskan Pollock was so overcooked it was dry. I might try it one more time.

My family stopped in while on vacation and loved the food and service so well that we made sure we went a 2nd time while in town. Will definitely come back when we are in town!

Excellent food, Excellent service and great sense of humor. We found this place based on the reviews and were not disappointed. It is located in a strip mall area between Venice and Englewood, so the ambiance is not phenomenal, but the food more than makes up for it.
