While visiting the area a friend suggested meeting for lunch at Pescados. We have returned 2 other times & have not been disappointed. My husband loves the Grilled Caesar Salad & I recommend Voodoo Shrimp. Will dine there whenever we are in town,

Six kids and seven adults gathered for a special family dinner and were all treated to their seafood specialties, including one well behaved 10 year old who ordered a whole cooked Red Snapper. Our waitress and kitchen staff could have hardly blinked as they provided prompt service, including the special appetizers such as a tomato cumin dip with blue chips.... More

Not your typical seafood place. Excellent menu and the specials have never failed to impress. A little pricy but worth it. Lunch menu is smaller as are the portions. Top picks: Mahi or the enchilada for entrees. Mangoes for dessert.

i will keep this short and simple. The Caribbean seafood theme is fantastic. We stopped in for lunch in between games over at the sports complex. We got there just before 2 pm not knowing the lunch time ended at 2. The staff just told us to take our time and enjoy the meal with we did. So much so... More

I'm a lover of well prepared seafood and last week when I was looking for a new lunch place, I saw Pescados Seafood. So, when I saw three patrons leaving the restaurant, I asked them if they liked it. In response to my question, I got three thumbs up. So, I went in and made myself comfortable. As I looked... More

This is great seafood but is not your typical seafood restaurant. The food has an island flair and some dishes are spicy. This is one of our favorite restaurants. Meals are prepared very well. Service is excellent. The slightly sweet blue tortilla chips are a must. And if you like it spicy, don't miss the voodoo shrimp appetizer. Don't let... More

Pescados is conveniently located on Midlothian Turnpike, Midlothian, VA. The quaint atmosphere is welcoming. The staff is knowledgeable on entrees and willing to make suggestions with detailed information.

In a word: fantastic. The food is top-notch! Try the seafood burrito, you won't be disappointed. Fresh ingredients and an innovative approach makes Pescados one of the, if not THE best restaurants in the area. They also have a great bar selection. My only complaint is that the decor leaves much to be desired.
