We stopped at Killer Seafood while exploring the Mexico Beach area. It is a small eatery with old Florida ambience. The food was quickly prepared with good portion size. The grilled shrimp,scallops,and soft shell crab are very tasty. Limited menu but fresh well seasoned fare....More

Being from Missouri we do not get much seafood (that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and sometimes your first born child) so we are loading up on as much seafood as we can get while here visiting. This place is amazing! My husband...More

Been eating here for years and it's always tasty. The bread bowl with killer sauce shrimp is a nice alternative to fried seafood. Service is speedy.

We were looking forward to eating here but, the owners had evacuated due to Hurricane Irma. Guess they wanted a weekend/week off. Irma was nowhere near Mexico Beach that weekend. The owners were probably being extra careful, we visited a restaurant across the street.

A wide variety of food choices is available. Good prices. Be aware that they only take CASH. Dining inside is available and also outside tables are there for your enjoyment. This time of year eating outside is great.

Fair warning, it's a cash-only place. Absolutely delicious though. My boyfriend and I both got the calamari tacos which were TO DIE FOR. In fact, though we haven't been back again [yet] that's pretty much ALL he talks about whenever I suggest going to Mexico...More

Couple of good answer that i can echo ... eating outside is OK and worth the visit if you just cannot leave your pet ... think about the SUN and as it slowly sinks into the Gulf ... evening might be best!!
