“Great Grouper, Fantastic clams and great Lobster Casserole”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We loved the food at the Village Fish Market so much, we ate here twice. We enjoyed the grouper, the whole belly clams and the Lobster Casserole - also the sweet potato fries. Both times we had a window table and loved the view. David was our waiter (we asked for him the second time) and he did an outstanding job considering that this restaurant is swarming with people - with more lined up outside to come in. David was upbeat, friendly and very helpful with menu choices - greatly appreciated. The kitchen delivered our meal in 13 minutes - nothing to complain about. Yes, it can be a while before you get your check, but the restaurant is full of happy eaters and I really do not see how the waitstaff could move any faster. It was worth the wait! And you have all those interesting shops to enjoy after your meal :)

“Good Again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We're in Punta Gorda every year in January and February and we usually stop in here. Service is always good and so is the view of the harbor out the huge windows. The menu is large and includes both small and full-size portions of many entrees. This year, my wife had the smaller portion of the salmon and thought it was very good. Last time, I had ordered the smaller portion of the haddock and thought the portion was really small. So, this time, I ordered the full-size portion of the scrod. It was enormous - and delicious ! We eat out a lot, when we're vacationing in Florida. This restaurant is one of the best in the area and worth a special trip.

“Good food and nice beer selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

We have never been here before but it was a nice day and our special needs grandson was celebrating his 7th birthday. The waitress was very attentive and when I mentioned the type of craft beer I like she suggested something that might satisfy me. We ordered ahead for our two special needs grandkids and it was delivered quickly and split for us. Some of us ordered the cod fish sandwich with onion rings and others the blue crab BLT. everything was good and we will return to try more of their menu.

“Village Fish Market at Fisherman's Village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaurant was a terrible disappointment for all who joined me there. Not only was the food less than average, but the service was so bad and slow, that two people in our party were actually served something they did not order. I fail to understand why this restaurant continues to exist, but only for locatioin!
