On our annual stop at Star Fish with family on a beautiful FL day. Ordered our traditional grouper sandwich and ate in the sunshine (and some shade) observed by the pelicans and egrets. Food was great as usual and served a bit quicker than before....More

Ice cold beer, $7.95 clam strip sandwiches with sides, and $4 glass of wine. Eat in sun or in the shade, overlooking boats covered in pelicans. Who could ask for more? No frills, just fresh fish. Cash only.

Fish was very dry for all our meals. We had a group of 7. Fried foods were good. Skip the calamari - had to be frozen. Just average, but great atmosphere.

This dockside restaurant is off the beaten path in Cortez. Great, inexpensiveg seafood served with a smile. Order at the counter and food is delivered in a box to your picnic table. Watch the pelicans dive for food while you eat at your waterside table....More

OMG,....! This place is sooo good! We had fried grouper and shrimp and loved it. It's very rustic outdoor dining right on the water and your food comes out in a cardboard box. But don't let that deter you. It's delicious seafood, around $25 per...More

Okay, so someone recommended this place to us. Don't know what they were thinking. The ambience was fun, the view was spectacular but my grouper dinner wasn't great. the grouper was partially raw. The best thing about my meal was the hush puppies and my...More

Stopped by one night for dinner. Very busy place where you walk up to order your meal and they bring it to your table. Grabbed a couple of drinks to enjoy while waiting for our food. We had the grilled and the blackened Grouper sandwiches...More
