Killer Seafood is housed in a quirky little low-slung building with a gravel parking lot that is easily overlooked...but DONT miss this place. We eat here more than once per week when visiting Mexico Beach. The fresh deep fried grouper and fish tacos are top shelf. The service is always friendly. You'll place your order at the counter and will... More

We just can't get anywhere near this area without making one dinner at Killer! The seafood bowl is our favorite. It's ok to have to pay cash, we don't leave home without planning on going to Killer anyway! And we never come home without buying at least 3 bottles of their famous Killer sauce. It is our tradition to come... More

Grilled tuna tacos are amazing. I got the sauce on the side and so much flavor in the tacos with a corn shell. I would highly recommend highly.

This place has counter service with a twist. You enter, get a menu, sit down at a table, and wait staff takes your drink order. Decide on your meal then, you go to the counter to order, and get a number to ensure the correct order arrives at your table. Despite that oddity the service was good. We ordered the... More

We had Lion Fish for the first time and it was delicious. This is a seafood joint, no frills, but wonderful food!

One of my favorite places to eat in Mexico Beach. Took two friends this year and they loved it as well. Everyone needs to try it.

Went out with Carol and Box Cox to place artificial reefs to help the ecology and local economy. My pal Bill Parsons and I offered to take them out to lunch after the boat ride to commemorate placing 66 artificial reefs. Carol Cox ordered me the Grouper soft taco's ... is there a heaven for taco eaters? They were superb.... More

Fantastic food and service. Doesn't seat very many so expect to wait and it is worth the wait. Fresh grouper, fish tacos and key lime pie! Need I say more!

Ever heard that those places that look like a shack or a hole in the wall are the best. This is the case for Killer Seafood. We had heard from a restaurant owner in Port St Joe that Killer Seafood was the place to go for seafood. We were not disappointed. Fortunately the night we went they were not too... More
