“Family lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Great place to bring the family. Kids loved the food and view of backwater with boats moving around were interesting to watch.

“Family restaurant with great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Restaurant is a local favorite situated at the marina. They will prepare your catch of the day in a variety of ways. The grouper sandwich is a favorite. Be sure to take advantage of their happy hour drink specials. Children enjoy seeing the boats return from fishing with their catch.

“Fresh seafood.... Where the locals go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Hi everyone,

This restaurant was recommended by locals. And now I always take my friends when we are in Florida.

Friendly, large outdoor patio on a canal.... Always something to watch As the restaurant is next to a boat harbour. Fish House even has an area where dog lovers can bring there furry family member.

Since, I am a diehard stone crab fan... This a staple of my order. Always fresh and scrumptious . Everything else on the menu always impresses... Shrimp is especially outstanding.

Count on a great happy hour drink and generous fresh seafood app... Including oysters.

Best kept secret in Fort Myers Beach!

“Great seafood shack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This is NOT FANCY - but if you just want a well prepared meal in a casual environment, this is a great place. Service was excellent, even though we arrived in the middle of a dinner rush. Our table had coconut shrimp, scallops and grouper. All very well prepared. Only letdown were the fries (why do restaurants serve those scary coated fries????), and my father-in-law was not impressed with the hush puppies. They prepare a mean margarita as well!

“One of our favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This was our third annual visit to the Fish House and we will go back again A couple of people in our party have to have the lobster bites every time, though there are more fries than lobster in the basket. I had the lobster roll sandwich which was okay, I wouldn't order again. The fries are good, but the real star of this place is the hush puppies. And the Rum Runners which are 2 for 1. They will even give you that Rum Runner to go! We arrived at 6:00 on a Sunday and they were really hopping, but we got our party of 4 seated immediately by taking a booth inside. The waitress was friendly and helpful. On past visits, we have enjoyed the hot blue crab and shrimp dip, peel and eat shrimp, stone crab claws and Bam Bam Shrimp. This place has a nice, casual atmosphere on the water. It's a little difficult to find, but worth it.
