Although it was a long wait, it was well worth it. The food and service was good. Presentation was great.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

My family goes to this restaurant all the time! Food is always good! I have a 1 year old and they r super accomodating. Always bring her food out quick. They see us coming and get our table ready with the high chair! Highly recommend! Open for breakfast too!

“One of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We love going to Madfish. The fish is "mad" indeed! Fresh and always well-prepared. My favorite menu item is the mangospacho. Their crab/lobster sandwich is awesome, too. My daughter loves their tilapia and salmon. Always a positive experience.

“Madfishgrill is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Sat at the bar. Bartenders are professional. They don't go on and on about their name, that they will be taking care of you and all that insincere, unnecessary blah blah. Just terrific service. We will be back!

“Nice restaurant friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We entered by the side door in error as it was raining very heavily. Staff helpful and had soon sorted us out a table. Place was busy and I noticed the staff enjoying a "bit of bater" with the clientèle. Menu selection good with as you would expect emphasis on the fish element. Good selection of beers.

Food was good and quickly serviced.
