We went for a late lunch/early dinner they were very busy but the service was still fast. The fish was very fresh and well prepared. Would definitely recommend.

On the infamous TV show this place is definitely a diner. Interesting beach decor with fast friendly service. The food however was barely ok. Everything was over cooked from the veggies to the fish. Menu said the "nutty" fish was encrusted with pistachios and macadamia nuts but it was only a sprinkling of nuts. The Bernaise sauce was not a... More

I ordered crab legs. Very small. The sides were okay 4 inch corn on the cob new potatoes. My husband had ribs they were the smallest ribs I have ever seen. They tasted good but small and thin. I would not go back

Most definitely a family restaurant and everyone seems to know what to expect here. Lots of locals and exceptional service. Get ready for loud and busy. Simply great food in every sense. Will be back!

Awesome food and atmosphere! This was the 2nd time we stopped at The Fish House. The 3 of us went for a late lunch one day after SCUBA diving and had a fantastic meal. We sat in the back area where they have a lot of pictures and write ups about the restaurant. We noticed they had a set of... More

Classic Florida fish joint. I have found that fish markets turn into the best seafood restaurants. The fish is the freshest. I live in Florida and this is in there with the best. If you r into fancy and fine dining this is not your place, if you want good, fresh fish it is

On the way back to Ft. Lauderdale we stopped for lunch here. What a great place. Hubby had the crab cakes, I had the Mahi Mahi and it was wonderful. The lobster bisque was one of the best I had. With so many places to choose from on the overseas highway, I will definitely be back to visit this one... More

No idea why this place gets good reviews on TA. Wouldn't even give it one star but that's the minimum. Very expensive, server was AWFUL. We were clearly bothering him by being there. You would probably have a bit of a better experience if the management would fire him as I saw a woman waiting on the table next to... More

Friendly atmosphere and very good service. Prices reasonable but moderately high. There are 10% off coupons in local coupon magazines- definitely use this. Restaurant family large and there is a sister restaurant right next door, but that restaurant (The Fish House Encore) is closed in October, and this restaurant is closed on September. Just note that while 3 of 4... More
