“Tasty but a bit Pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We ate here on a recommendation and it was good, but we found it to be a bit pricey in the end. We each had a shrimp dish and also tried the conch. The Shrimp was delicious but I think I had higher expectations for the conch (thanks a lot Bahamas!). The atmosphere is also nice - but make sure your not in eyeshot of the big bright sign in the plaza. I would rate it higher if not for the price.

“Quick stop on way to airport-”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Saw their advertisement in the paper and decided to try something new. We ordered the 1/2 pound of shrimp and 1/2 pound of grouper, with included sides of fries, fuchi (fried pollenta) and extra white rice, and a side of fish soup. One guest ordered the chicken sate/kabobs, which ended up being rather dry. The shrimp were great, but the grouper pieces had ALOT of bones in them...which really ruins the act of just eating without thinking... You find yourself trying NOT to bite into a bone. The fish soup was fair, and again, had some bones in it..
Not a place I would go again unless I ONLY get the shrimp dish. Kinda pricey too considering the dry chicken and bony fish.

“Casual dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

Red Fish is very casual. The food we had was very good and the prices reasonable. I had the conch and the others in the party had grilled grouper.
