“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

I actually live near here so I am a local but I have to tell you we love it. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are really friendly we've only been 3 times or so but everytime we have a good time. The shrimp on fire is excellent as well as the fish dip actually all the food we've had there has been excellent and yes they even allow well behaved dogs on the patio.

“Always packed..for good reason”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

There's a good reason this restaurant/bar on a side road near Orlando is packed every day: great food (especially fresh seafood) and great drink prices. Well drinks just $2 from 4-7pm. The blackened grouper sandwich at $13 is to die for. Although near airport most clientele are locals who know a good deal. Right next to LaQuinta Inn - Airport West. 4 out of 5 stars all around.

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know about your experience at the "Fish". I will share this with my staff and let them know they did a great job. It is so much fun when everything works as planned. I hope to see you again soon. Better yet I should visit Australia and wet a line off the the GBR.

“Much better then I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

If I didn't read the reviews I probably wouldn't have stopped for dinner and I would have missed out on good food at a good price. It's right off the highway in a shared lot with a hotel. I felt like a snob because my first thought was that it was a biker bar but of course when I got inside there were 2 tables with senior citizens and it just proves not to judge. It has some cool water themed decorations like the hostess station as a boat front. The food was really good and it was priced great. They have more then fish on the menu the hamburger was really good. I highly recommend the jalapeno & cheese stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon so yummy!

“Give it a try.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I was staying overnight in Orlando at the La Quinta West and due to limited choices in the area went to Fish on Fire (on the recommendation of the hotel clerk).

Of course, being at a fish place I ordered one of their half-pound hamburgers. Just had an appetite for beef. It was good. It comes with fries and a side order. I got coleslaw. It was very good but came in a very small container. Not much there. The fries were tasty and ample and they serve cold beer.

My server was excellent and I didn't have to wait long. I wasn't there during prime time however. The place has a nice vibe. Not too fancy and not the cookie cutter decor of a national franchise.
