Best seafood in the panhandle of the gulf coast. The cole slaw is homemade and tbe best I've ever eaten. Whoever said it was pedestrian is a total idiot. Our restaurant of choice always for as long as they will kindly keep serving. Thank you!!!!👍

This "dive" is a fantastic stop. The killer bowls and fish dip are fantastic. There is a long wait during prime time so plan accordingly. Cash only.

Don't get me wrong...as the folks here are very nice and over the top accommodating, but I thought the portion of fish on the Killer Tacos was way too skimpy. Others in our party thought the same. The toppings were so overwhelming...I did not even taste the fish!! One member of our party ordered the calamari and we all reached... More

You go in, get seated, server hands you a menu, and takes your drink order. Then you go up to the counter, give your order, sit back down and start counting all the $ bills hanging everywhere. Then the food arrives and you experience an edible heaven.

Ok place. Fried/grilled seafood. Don't take cc as evidently no one in Mexico Beach does! Small dining room. Typical small seafood place on Forgotten Coast for a nice non fancy seafood meal. Cole slaw was not very good. Corn on Cobb was good but very small. Will go back when in area. (Not a lot of other choices!)

We went today for the first time at lunch and we were very pleased with the food and the friendly staff. I had a burger and fries, cheaper than most in the area by almost half and much tastier. My boyfriend had Mahi Mahi and loved it, also tried the fish tacos and fried shrimp and it was all so... More

Ate lunch here with my wife, she had a piece of sweet potato / pecan pie and I had the shrimp po boy sandwich. She wasn't real excited about her pie but I thought my shrimp po boy was fantastic. It was so packed with lightly breaded shrimp that it was impossible to put the top on the sandwich. The... More

Whenever anyone mentioned a fish taco to me I would immediately turn up my nose and say that tacos should only be made with meat and cheese until tonight when I decided to step out of the box and try a fish taco at Killer Seafood. They were amazing just like the hush puppies and the slaw. So glad we... More
