Mister Fish is one of my favorite spots in Lakeland, Picking up lunch and eating next to Lake Morton or under the shade at the library is perfect in fall and spring.

It is a dumpy, little hole-in-the wall place, but they do seafood right. I had the fish sandwich and the fish was... More

Very disappointed. Greasy. Very expensive. No fresh cut fries. Everything tasted processed. Pay a few bucks more and go to Harry's

Simply a great and fun place to get the best fish sandwich ever. Love the feel of walking up to an old wooden building and ordering from a window while standing outside. We get the fish sandwich with everything. The onion rings are awesome and the sweet tea perfect.

Established years ago, Mister Fish is known for serving fish sandwiches and sides that go with it. It is a walk up and takeaway place.
