We decided to give the Fish House a try but will avoid it now. We went early and were the only people there while we ate. We ordered fish tacos - mine the oyster taco. They were served with rice and red beans (as two separate sides.) There was too much breading on the oysters but otherwise... read more

The tiny oysters were a joke. Lumpy massed potatoes. This is a sad excuse for Gulf Coast seafood. Go somewhere else and check the reviews first.

Last visited this restaurant about 16 months ago - was looking for a place to eat tonight and remembered this place. Many restaurants in Port A are closed for the holidays but not the Fish House. Not many patrons, but had Christmas music and decorations in the dining area downstairs and the bar upstairs was open as well. Because there... More

Drove by several time and decided to check it out. Excellent service and food. Definitely going to make it a regular thing. Didnt make it upstairs to the deck because the weather was off. But will try it next time.

We went last night and had the BEST grilled mahi mahi ! I didn't want to have the pesto pasta that it came with so they offered double salad substitution without any hesitation. But after my husbands meal came and I tasted his pasta, I should have ordered the special "as is" the pasta was delicious and was a very... More

Well the upstairs is nice with a great deck. They have charbroiled oysters but they are not that great.. Not New Orleans style for sure. They need more seasoning and more "char". The service is good. Our friends liked the fish tacos. They are open late which is a good thing. The downstairs dining area is rather boring.. The upstairs... More

We had charbroiled oysters and the wedge salad. Both were excellent. Owner was working in the Upper Deck (2nd floor sports bar) and was a pleasure to visit with. They also had fish, shrimp and oyster tacos that looked great but we were full. We'll be back!

Good value and no line. Chicken fried steak burger was poorly executed. Nice atmosphere and good service. Wife really liked her shrimp salad. Fed family of 3 for 25 bucks
