We knew Killer's way back when and they have stayed true to serving great food with friendly service. Fish tacos are the best and love the light breading on big fat shrimp! Crab cakes are our favorite of all time. They used to serve with the taco sauce and stopped doing it that way, but will if you request. :)

They only take cash so be prepared. Menu was great with lots of choices and daily catch specials. Service was good too with refills and drinks and help with the menu. Great fish tacos. We also had the basket of three items: crab cakes, calamari, and shrimp. All were excellent, in fact the best we've Hardin this coast so far.... More

Across the street from our hotel. Inviting little hole in the wall, with the "freshest seafood on the beach"! Very popular place, well worth the wait! Great fresh, seafood, fun relaxed atmosphere

Complain if you want to because "cash" only. Or maybe the days and hours open or the fact it's often crowded. The food is awesome! I've eaten probably every item on the menu. Been there when it's crowded. Been there when it wasn't. Good people good food!

Excellent fresh seafood and sides. The kids loved the grouper and mahi. Better get there early for a seat.

We decided to try Killer Seafood on Sunday because we heard they were closed on Monday and Tuesday. We also heard that it would be wise to arrive early. So we got there before they opened and found a line already starting. Summary: Food: Excellent Service: Excellent Value: Excellent Atmosphere: Fun, but like a dive bar For more details read... More

This is the best seafood around. We have eaten inside and it's kind of busy but the last time we ordered it to go and it was just as good. The smoked fish dip is amazing and the bread bowls are too. Highly recommend.

Visited with friends while staying in lovely Mexico Beach, one of our favorite venues in Florida. This place is small, cozy and delicious. Fresh seafood at its best. We were all very impressed.

Homey feel, very nice and friendly staff, perennial favorite makes a short wait obligatory but handled well with drinks at the picnic tables out front and appetizer order taken prior to seating. Very nice family place in a local resort town. Closed Mondays/Tuesdays. Southern menu including the commensurate offerings of fried items.
