Not your usual seafood restaurant

Not much to look at from the outside, the Krazy Fish makes up for that with what's found within! From rather random but colorful walls, booths, and wall adornments to menu items that feature very unusual food combinations and flavors KF seems to excel at the unusual--even differently flavored... read more

Popped into this creatively decorated Krazy Fish today for lunch. Not my normal type of place but I love local finds like this. Their menu is as diverse as their decor and the grilled Cuban chicken and steak was packed with flavor. The black eyed peas side dish is a new favorite for me.

I came here thinking it was a predominantly seafood restsurant but it's more varied than that. I had Mahi, Southern fried shrimp and loan beef tacos. Very yum. Its worth the 8 minute trip from downtown.

It seems this is a Mexican restaurant that serves Thai food and curries. Very eclectic, good bar selection. The atmosphere is pretty down home. If you can’t decide on a style of food they have a lot of choices.

I basically found this place by random pick on trip advisor. The restaurant was easy enough to find using GPS. As soon as I walked in the door I was hitting by a sour musty smell. I wanted to turn around, but I didn't. As I sat down and took in the wacky, weird,random decor I knew this place would... More

What is good: The service is great, people are friendly. Other considerations: The location is a bit out of the way of most of the Central avenue bars and restaurants. The food: If you are looking for large quantities of deep fried, highly salted seafood at a reasonable price, this is a great place to eat.

My family and I immediately tried out the Krazy Fish after having watched Diners etc w/Guy Fieri last night. WOW! Not only did the young man who greet us give us a thorough run down on the menu items but the owner came over and made sure we enjoyed our lunch as well. It is rare to find a jewel... More
