I love coming here for their triggerfish! Best in town and it's always fresh! Their fries are amazing! Wish it was a little brighter in the dining area but the food tops it so I don't mind!

The oysters on the half shell were the best part of our meal. The gumbo, while good, was not great. I ordered the grilled mahi mahi with steamed vegetables. The fish was decent, but the vegetables were frozen and most likely from a bag. Then may have local history, but that would be about it. Lackluster and nothing noteworthy.

Food was mediocore, portions were small for the price, grad.was figured in the bill, we were a party of 10, separate checks and 18% was added to each bill. Service was slow, appitizers were delivered at different times, had to ask the wait staff for the gumbo 2 times.

Saved this place for last. I wanted a local seafood place for the last night and I chose High Tide. The food was absolutely great. Everyone got what they wanted and it was all cooked perfectly. The hostess/waitress was attentive and pleasant. The decor reminded me of eating in places like this when I was young which most people would... More

Our family voted High Tide as the best place to eat during our visit to FL. Not a huge franchise-type place. Everything we are was wonderful! The gumbo was some of the best I've ever eaten! Will definitely go back!

Was told about this place by a waitress at Fudpuckers. So glad we listened!! Got there during happy hour and had $9.99 per dozen raw oysters. Shared 2 of the platters and ordered extra gumbo and chowder. All was very good except the fried fish, which was a bit dry.

My husband and I wanted to go here because it was close to our condo and we read the reviews. I ordered the stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon and he had the grilled Mahi Mahi. We usually share our food so we can try more of a variety while on vacation. We were both pleased with the food and service.

Thank Meme2004
