“Great place to eat!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We had one of the best meals at Killer Seafood when we went to Mexico Beach in May. I have been reading their reviews on here for the last 4 years and wanted to go there our first night. We were not disappointed! It was a little crowded so we got our food to go. We tried the Fried Shrimp, Crab Cake, Fried Grouper, Fish Tacos and a Cheeseburger. We were all happy with our choices and thought it was great! I wanted to go back a second night but didn't get to make it. I will definitely be back when we visit Mexico Beach again!!

“Tricia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Just what we were looking for! We came just off the beach. Easy, breezy, laid back, casual with delicious beach fare. Fried grouper tacos, Poboys, hush puppies (awesome) and key lime pie. Go early for short wait, only seats 40 at a time.

“Don't Eat Anywhere Else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

There is a reason this is the number one restaurant in the area.....It's fabulous! All of us in our party had the Fish Tacos with Hush Puppies. All I can say is this will be a place we come back to! If you are in Apalachicola it is worth the drive. I'm from Orlando, and a weekend in Mexico Beach and dining at this place is also, so worth the drive! Oh yeah, save room for a piece of key lime pie ;)

“Great for lunch, cash only!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Recommended by hotel staff, we walked to Killer Seafood. Grilled tuna tacos and grilled shrimp basket were great, lots of selections, killer coleslaw. Not a big place. quick service. Very friendly wait staff. Don't go to be wined and dined. You get a table, place your order at counter. They bring it to you. Then you pay. Definitely would go again if in area.

“Tasty, fresh food / Cash only / Prepare to wait and don't get there late! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We arrived just after they opened for dinner and there was already a line of people waiting. We had our dog with us, so the hostess asked others who were seated and waiting at the only outside table to allow us to sit (we would've gladly waited, but she was rather forceful...). Since there were only 3 of us (plus the dog), we did offer the other half of the table to those who were still waiting.

We were told to go inside to order and tell them we were outside so we could be served. While we were waiting, they brought out a large bowl of water for the dog -- a nice touch on a hot, sunny evening.

My husband and daughter ordered the fried (catch of the day) grouper and I ordered the combo platter with soft-shelled crab and grilled shrimp. We also ordered a side of hush puppies (4) to start, but it all arrived at once. The soft-shelled crab and grilled shrimp were delicious, and the fried grouper was great. After hearing the hostess and some other customers raving about the "best key lime pie you'll ever have," we decided to try it ourselves. It was fresh and definitely key lime and, although it was very good, the jury is still undecided about "best ever" status! ;)

Although we were there early, we did hear stories about others who had arrived close to closing who experienced rude, rushed service, and the lady behind the counter who took our order could have been a bit nicer...

Great food, dog-friendly (at their one and only outside table), and worth it overall -- but you might consider take-out if it's an option! ;)
