Outside dining is not high on my list and certainly not in June. However, the breeze blowing in off the water made for a very pleasant dining experience. We had reservations and were seated almost immediately. We received our food within 30m of arriving and...it was very good. Take care to park or you will be towed. Just use the free valet service to avoid the struggle but please tip.More

Best meal, service and atmosphere we experienced during our entire week at the beach. The Tuna appetizer and spinach dip were delicious. Sushi rolls were on point. The Parmesan Crab Crusted Grouper special is worth getting every visit if available. For dessert, we had the...flourless chocolate cake with a raspberry drizzle. Amazing! Definitely adding to our list of go to each year we visit 30A! We were worried about the wait time after reading the reviews. Our party of 7, did not have a reservation but arrived at 5:00pm. We were immediately sat and had finished our meal within the hour. Love this restaurant!More

My family (group of 7), had a 7:45pm reservation. Staff - from parking lot workers, to all wait staff and everyone we encountered on the property - they were amazing. Polite, manners, attentive and on point. This is a well oiled machine of an operation....Food - we all had different entrees and no one was disappointed. Fresh grouper is awesome in their lemon sauce. Atmosphere is unique and works well for couples or large groups. This was our first time here but will not be our last. Make a reservation for sure but you will not regret it. Owners you're doing something right here and keep those employees, they are head and shoulders above any other staff we've encountered on our vacation.More

I went here against my better judgement. We went here last year and had one good experience and one bad experience. After the bad experience, I swore I would not come here again. Fast forward to this year as I was trying to make dinner...reservations for our trip and was able to reserve a table without a problem, so decided to try it again. We were seated indoors, which was a disappointment. The menu was definitely smaller than last year, but still had a lot of choices. The sushi was terrific as were the charbroiled oysters, but none of our entrees were that great. They were decent, but for the price, I expect above average food. Needless to say, this sealed the deal and we will not be back again.More

Our party was 13 and our reservation was at 9:15pm. Server was nice and attentive but had other large parties therefore, sporadic service. More than 1/2 our party had salads which arrived about 30 minutes after the appetizers. Ok I can live with that. But,...the salads were nothing but chopped lettuce and nuts Then the meals were served within a minute of the salads. One of my pet peeves in restaurants. By then the place had mostly cleared out and they couldn't wait to get us out. Cleaning around our table and such. I finally told the wait staff to give me the bill and checked out. The food (other than the salad) was good but in my opinion nothing special for the price. You can imagine how much the total bill was which comes with the territory (30A). There are other way better options in the area that made our trip more special.More

Me and my family were on vacation and were at first excited about eating here. Our feeling of excitement soon faded after witnessing a waitress in plain view of our table microwaving a bean side dish and put the beans on a fancy looking plate....While doing so on one occasion the waitress dropped the beans on the table then picked them up with her bear hands and still served them. Our food was good but certainly not the best sea food we’ve had in the area. And the prices were extremely high for the portions and quality of the food you receive. Finally the kitchen form were we set did not look like it had high standards in terms of cleanliness, warming trays and other items left about next to an employee handling food.More

The Old Florida Fish House is a big place. Big retail outlet on the way in. The bar has dueling pianos, so the ambiance is robust and clamorous to be sure. Great rye and whiskey selection, but cocktail execution is slipshod. Get you bourbon served...neat as that is impossible to screw up. Apps will not come before entree if ordered at same time, so order apps first. My oysters were pretty good, and the sushi rolls were good. My grouper was ok. Wine selection ok. I would come her again to down some beers at the bar, or maybe have oysters. Would not come for a full dinner. The place ain’t cheap either, so don’t let the name fool you.More

Highly recommended by locals and visitors alike I felt we had to go. The food was good—fish very fresh and tasty. We did make a reservation, were seated promptly (5:15pm). and chose inside to get out of the July sun. Our server was super friendly...and knowledgeable, we were served quickly. The environment is lovely in the garden, but avoid the sunset for bugs and summer heat. There are plenty of trees, but no shade at sunset—it’s a trade off for the view. In 10 minutes outside for some photos we were all dripping with sweat and the bugs were feasting on us. Valet is complimentary and required—while they have lots of staff we still waited 20 minutes for our car when leaving (around 7pm). I can see why people like the location, but it just was not comfortable for us. Food and drink were good, but not exceptional or unique. You are paying for the location and sunset views.More

We had dinner and lunch here during our vacation. Food was excellent, with service to match. Made reservations on line in advance. We ate at many different places during the week but no other restaurant came close to the quality of food, service and reasonable...time to get food on the table to feed beach worn and hungry family.More

Wow! Absolutely outstanding. Arrived 30 mins. before our reservation and were sat immediately. Our appetizers came out as our server was still at our table. The service was out of this world. The atmosphere was amazing. The food was incredible. Will definitely be back.

The Florida Fishhouse specializes in fresh gulf caught seafood. We had a large party of 12 which was quick to be seated. We had grouper, gumbo, shrimp, house and Caesar salads. Our server gave good suggestions, made sure we didn’t have allergies or other issues...and checked on us regularly, even after the food was delivered. We were sat indoors (near 100 degrees) where there was plenty of seating. There’s a raw bar and sushi is available for dinner too. There’s hundreds of tables outside under shades and beautifully lit at night (we drove past later the same night). I highly recommend coming for the fresh seafood and fun atmosphere.More

Food was good but sparse. I ordered the blackened snapper from the grill. I’m a small person but it still wasn’t enough food for me. I got about 7 green beans. Thankfully my sister got a plate full. Also the piece of fish was very...small. I also ate from a friend’s plate. We arrived at 5pm hoping it wouldn’t be very busy but service was still slow. The bananas foster bread pudding was divine.More
