“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

From the friendly waitstaff that remembers your name to the owner to the great food-always a good time at FOF! I love going on Friday nights when the guy is on the patio playing the steal drums. Feels like I'm on vacation even though I'm a local. I say try the steak Gorgonzola flatbread and the shrimp on fire!

“Great place to dine.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Fish on Fire is a great place to dine, listen to music or have a few drinks. I typically come here for dinner when I am flying out of Orlando International Airport, and spending the night at a local nearby hotel. As the name might suggest - the fish (and seafood in general) is very excellent! The staff and service was top notch. The bar has both indoor and outside seating, as well as for dining. My most recent visit a duet was playing/singing which made the night even more enjoyable.

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Great place. Convenient to the airport hotels... Venture out of chain-land and enjoy a great meal - support local businesses!!!!
Fish was fresh - had the grilled grouper, key west style - simply prepared with just the right amount of seasonings. The collards needed the pepper vinegar, but were then delicious. The the beans and rice were flavorful. Didn't need the garlic bread - would have rather had slightly larger sides instead!
Service was friendly and extremely helpful...everyone was in a good mood! Will definitely go back when I'm in town.

“Fun and Friendly Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

My family and I ate at Fish on Fire on a recent visit to Orlando. We try to eat local anywhere we visit and picked this spot for our final meal on this particular visit. We picked it on a bit of a whim and were a bit concerned when we saw where it was located - sharing a parking lot with a motel. What a waste of concern that turned out to be!!! It was all so tasty!
All three of us had a very enjoyable meal with great service. We also had live music (loud) but that was okay as well. The food was so much better than we had hoped to find and the choices were many. This is somewhere we would happily visit again on our next trip to the area.

“Casual seafood and BBQ restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Right next to the La Quinta airport West, this seemed to be both a local and tourist restaurant. Menu had nice selections and waitress was cheerful, friendly and efficient. Food came out quickly!! As a solo traveler, I felt comfortable there.
