The food was excellent. The atmosphere was cozy. The bar was separate from the couples seating. The restaurant was decorated very nicely too.

Worst $40+ I have ever spent on a meal out by myself !!! I have heard about the OP Fish House for sometime now so I decided to try it & unfortunately it was not a good experience. I was seated in a room across...from the entrance & waited for my waitress to come see me for at least 10 minutes, I ordered a draft beer which I waited 15+ minutes to get. I ordered a cup of the fish chowder & an entree of fried scallops & fried oysters thinking I would first get my chowder however my waitress brought my entree along with my seafood chowder (which was a clam chowder with a few chunks of fish in it) that was very bland. My fried scallops were prepared well with a very light breading however the fried oyster tasted like they were breaded days ago (very heavily breaded) rather that freshly breaded to order so I ate 2 out of 6 and they were horrible 👎 at least the coleslaw was fresh & creamy. I would not recommend this restaurant at all !!!More

We have never been disappointed whether we have come with a large group or just as a couple. The food and the service are consistently outstanding. Our server this week, Lauren, was friendly and fantastic! See you again soon!

This seafood is the most BLAND seafood I had in my life. Couldn’t even finish the meal. Their cheese grits TERRIBLE. Their corn DRY as hell. Their crab is AWFUL. My boyfriend didn’t care for his meal either. Didn’t like his lobster. It was SOOOOOOO...bland. They didn’t even season their mashed potatoes. This was so awful. & I’m mad I paid over 100 bucks for absolutely nothing. Do not recommendMore

Mt boyfriend and I stopped here while visiting Jacksonville. It was a great choice! The food was tasty and the service was good. The restaurant was quaint and separated into rooms. I ordered the Captains Platter fried with sweet potatoes and a Ceasar salad. The...only thing I didn't like was that the sweet potatoes had powdered sugar garnished on them and came with a side of icing. That made the sweet potatoes too sweet. My boyfriend ordered scallops, oysters and soft shell crab with greens and mashed potatoes. The sides were seasoned well! You could tell tge greens were cooked with some kind of meat! We would definitely return. We ordered an appetizer (fried green tomatoes) and two entrees with two beers and didn't spend $80.More

We arrived about 11:30AM on a Tuesday and walked right in-- nice place, divided into serving "rooms" so you don't compete with fifty other tables to make yourself heard. Good selection on the menu -- we opted for po'boys which arrived right after the freshly...brewed coffee. The size of the po'boys was a bit intimidating but we were almost up to the task, and gosh they were good!More

My wife and I wanted to celebrate my dinner with a nice lunch. We both love seafood and this place has it. The entrees were well done and very enjoyable. Service was excellent and the decor was fish theme homey.

I love this place. I love to meet friends here for happy hour drinks and to share apprizers. I’ve been going here friends and on date night with my husband since before the pandemic. I came here the other night and had a great experience...with our server Randi. She made sure we had a wonderful time. She also reminded us about the specials the restaurant offers-We are going to organize a girls night soon for the lobster night! We are so excited. They still offer the oyster on the half shell special one night a week. Call them to check out those opportunities. I was so impressed to see that they seem to be expanding their dinning area as they have hired someone to paint beautiful murals in the store across the deck from the original entrance. So nice. I took pictures - check it out.More

We had a great date night last night! We had a bit of a wait but that is to be expected. It was .60 oyster night. We had a blast. Great service, drinks, and food!

Went with two others and all three were very happy with the food and service. We all had combinations of fish, shrimp platters. Also had the fish Chowder and raw oysters, perfect. At the end. key lime pie was perhaps the best I've had. Certainly,...no complaints here, but go early.More

I live in Arizona and miss fish. Took my 3 nieces there last night. Service was awful. Waited 20 minutes for a starter salad that was served at the same time as main course. Server forgot silverware. I ordered the Captains platter. Food was mediocre...at best. Scallops were fried lumped together. French fries were raw in the center. Would not go backMore

Lets start with Google wouldn't allow me to review this location twice. It's been na year since my 1st visit. Me & my bestie went she'd never been..OMG our server Jamee. What a great personality; definitely a people person. She knew this menu & what...to recommend. She was very attentive & will request her our next visit. Lets talk food! Kitchen staff you KILLED IT! Nothing we ate disappointed. Those sweet creamy deviled eggs; homemade pimento cheese; damn those brussel sprouts; I don't care who you are you'll love these. I enjoyed the shrimp & grits; so creamy & blackened shrimp; loved it. My bestie the all you can eat shrimp w 2 sides. She chose carb overload sweet potato fries w/ marshmellow dip. Every serving of shrimp rocked! Blackened, friend, broiled.More

Our group did call ahead and were surprised to be seated right away. They were not busy on Sat night. But everything went downhill from there. Drinks came out quickly with one of two appetizers ordered. However, our fish dip was not mixed well and...had to eat around several different chunks of plain cream cheese. Waitress disappeared and did not see our second appetizer until 1/2 hour later. We were told the list of items they were out of after placing our orders. My husband’s second drink had a hair in it and he immediately handed back to the waitress to take away and they got him another drink but still no food. Then when our food came out the plates did not come out together and we all ate at different times. The birthday boys fried shrimp and oysters were way over done and tough while his wife was served later and had the same dish and was delicious. I will say I would try this place again as some of our food items were good but would not do any celebrations here. I’m guessing staffing issues as many friends had raved about the food?More
