“Good fresh mahi.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We went here for lunch and sat outside - beautiful day. I had the mahi fish taco. The fish was tender and fresh. It's prepared as a taco and deep fried. Deep frying doesn't do much for this item. It was good - but not great. The jalapeno hush puppies were okay (my guess is they were frozen but I could be wrong). Great location. Good service.

“Who cares about the food when you're at Fishy, Fishy!?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

OK, the food is average at best. But the atmosphere, setting, Key West feel, and view of the sunset...along with a glass or two of wine makes for a very pleasant night in Southport. Be smart, order bar food and you can't go wrong, and you'll save money for another cocktail as the sun goes down! Enjoy!

“Very disappointing!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

The location is perfect but, the service was painfully slow and the food was nothing to write home about, in fact it was way below average. The staff were friendly enough but, I would not return so cannot recommend this as a good place to visit. Let’s hope the restaurant changes hands as it’s a delight waiting to happen. In the right hands, I’m sure this could be an excellent restaurant as the location is so good.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Good food but the service was a little slow for November. It did not seem too busy so not sure why such slow service for a weekend. We still will eat here again next time.
