If you're a fan of seafood you need to check this place out. Went there on a Taco Tuesday night & had a wonderful time. My friend got some of the fish tacos, which she loved & I got the clam chowder. Being from a town right next to the ocean I hold seafood places to a high standard when... More

We were just walking by and noticed all these people going in to an unassuming restaurant ... we were hungry ... we followed .... if you want fresh seafood cooked to perfection in a happening spot I think this is it! We enjoyed the fish sandwiches and really enjoyed Yellow tail and Yellow fin tuna. The couple beside us shared... More

A casual eatery with absolutely delicious fresh fish. My swordfish was fabulous. My husband enjoyed his fish tacos with ahi. I appreciated the craft beer selection and the ability to sample before I ordered a delicious local beer.

We had the fish tacos and chips and salsa. The fish tacos (mahi-mahi) were good and the chips were fresh. This is not a typical restaurant in that it's more and open air walk up and order. Right in the Bayview behind the sportfishing store. Would go here again.

A nice location to have lunch looking over the docks & a wonderful way to watch the sun go down with one of their local draft beers & a selection from their freshly caught menu items.

Amazing food! Great staff! Inexpensive! Nice view! What else could one ask for? Um, a sign. Took us forever to find Mitch's but it was worth the mild frustration. I guess it keeps out the riffraff or those who are easily confounded. I mentioned to locals that we went to Mitch's for seafood and twice, I got this reply, "Yeah,... More

This place is 95% perfect. If it had convenient parking it would be 100%. The location and view are enjoyable and entertaining, and the menu selection is amazing. While we were there the friendly and helpful staff changed it four times, updating with new, fresh selections. We shared the Mixed Seafood Platter and it was plenty for two. Very tasty... More

Fantastic casual restaurant. Very fresh and delicious seafood at reasonable prices. Great beer selection. Order at counter and take a seat. The servers bring the food to your table. Nothing fancy, just really good, fresh fish.

Walked from Bay Club. Great fisherman's stew and Crab Poutine. Shrimp skewers were almost too much shrimp (almost!) Walk, drive, or bike, a great, unsuspecting dinner spot.
