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.

Two couples stopped by at 6:15pm on a Thursday and were seated right away. There are enough food choices and some specials. Not a place for plain food eaters. Everything had a sauce of fruit,vegetable or cream. Everyone had a good meal.

We have eaten dinner here several times and recently had lunch. It is always great. The dishes they prepare are unique, nothing run of the mill, and the flavors explosive! We like to try their specials and they are always offering different choices. Recently we had the voodoo shrimp which was amazing and the fish tacos (mahi) which was also... More

The food was a treat for the eyes as well as the palate. Everything is fresh and much is local. There are many gluten free options. They do not take reservations. The restaurant was busy but we waited at the bar and the cocktails were expertly prepared and delicious so we didn't mind the wait. The staff was friendly and... More

My favorite kind of place - completely unpretentious but with a spectacular menu. Four of us ate here on Cheap Date Night (Thursday) and everyone loved the food. The Mrs and I had the seafood enchilada and our friends had the snapper special and the scallops. The presentation was perfect and the quality of the meal excellent. Tres Leches to... More
