We visited the restaurant and was treated as if we were invisible. Staff walked all around us and not one uttered a word about assisting or seating us. Against my better judgement we wondered thru the restaurant until we found someone to seat us. The service was slow on purpose. The food was poor on purpose. I would not recommend... More

Don't expect fine dining at Garcia's but the seafood is fresh and the service is friendly. Location is fun too right on the river. Look for the picky bird friend that lurks outside. I'd return for sure.

Really great seafood on the Miami River... There was inside and outside seating... We were outside on a classic Florida balmy breeze eve... Food and service was great... A little bit of a dive but that's part of its ambiance ... Even though it's a " divie ambience"... Anyone can still be a little cleaner and organized... And that was... More

Garcia's Seafood Grille is an institution. They are known for their really fresh and tasty seafood along with having a nice view on the inter coastal if you have outdoor seating. The decor is kind of ancient, its not the most elegant place but it is a pretty cool place for a good mojito and some good seafood.

Garcia has the best fish ever! The fish in Garcia is fresh because when they catch the fish they bring it straight to Garcia. Also they have this white fish that you eat with a cracker when you first sit down. If you ask them to seat you outside you will see a nice view of the water. Garcia also... More

It is always nice to go back to the fish eatery located by the Miami River, a short drive from Brickell. This cuban family owned restaurant have been in the fishing business for decades and make sure the fist at their restaurant is always fresh. Enjoy delicious whole deep friend snapper, ceviches, and other local specialities, all by the river... More

We really enjoyed being in the open restaurant with the river flowing by, a few boats going by one stopped at the ladder leading into the restaurant, ordered to go as the sun lingered on the tables before going down in the west. My salad was fresh and crisp. The shrimp were not overcooked and were very flavorful. The key... More

We went to dinner here with another couple. The waiters were super nice and very accommodating with our children. They were patient and explained everything. I think his name was Augusto. Awesome service. Food was great, very fresh. Yes, a little expensive but a nice night out. We will be back soon.

Had lunch here on the river. Service was immediate and quite good throughout. The menu is the same for lunch and dinner which accounts for a pricey lunch. Options are strictly seafood, however, very good quality and tasty. The location borders on a very undesirable area. Outside dining is offered. Restaurant has an old time waterfront feel.
