Went with a friend on a Sunday evening. It wasn’t busy, only four other tables dinning. I’ve heard so many good things and was excited to try them out. Not impressed at all. Overpriced for what was served. The fish dip was nothing but filler,...very little fish. Ordered the Captain’s Platter. Brussels sprouts were way over cooked. Crab cakes burnt on both sides and lots of shell in it. Mahi was overcooked and dry. All you could taste in the cole slaw was vinegar. The shrimp, scallops, and oysters were just ok. Tally Fish House is an hour drive for me. So disappointed. I’ll stick to driving to the coast for my seafood.More

We are currently leaving after waiting over an hour to receive NO FOOD with a minimally populated restaurant. Will get takeout pizza on the way home.

My wife and I went out for our 52nd wedding anniversary with a desire for good food over fancy surroundings. We weren't disappointed! The fried oysters were some of the best we've tasted. Every piece of food was prepared well. To make things even better,...our server, Hannah Smith, the bar manager, was always available and quick with an enjoyable manner. We highly recommend the restaurant to anyone who enjoys seafood.More

I made reservations for my family and arrived on time (630). 1 & 1/2 hours later we still had not received our meals. We did get 8 hush puppies to hold us over for our party of 8. When the meal arrived, two of the...pasta dishes had clumped pasta (? sitting under a warmer) and my son's fish sandwich was only partially cooked. My daughters meal was was not served at all...server must have missed it when writing down the orders. We left and headed over to Chik fil A as it was 830 pm and we were still hungry. Very disappointing. Still paid $200 for the appetitzers that we did get during the course of the night. The server was sweet but not very attentive. She did , however, comp. the beers.More

The appetizers were great. My meal arrived after everyone in our party of seven had finished and almost finished their meal. The waiter failed to tell me that my meal had been burnt. The manager never came to fix the problem. Let the blabber mouth...waiter handle the situation. We were all having a conversation and the waiter began to discuss his personal life with us. In the middle of family toast. I will not be returning to this place that is not run properly and very over priced.More

When it opened we literally went 3 times a month on the weekends for the pleasant outdoor seating. To put it nicely Fish House has gone down… tremendously… Today it took 20 mins to get drinks and at 40 mins we still hadn’t had the...chance to order. There were three sat tables outside. There were maybe four sat tables inside. The waiter was apologetic and said they were short staffed and busy. The table next to us complained that Fish House couldn’t find a spoon for his gumbo and they didn’t have any crackers for crab legs. The tables look like no one has cared for them in years (please just sand and restrain them)… the men’s room besides needing to be cleaned had a $30 trash can that was rusted and broken causing you to lift up the dirty lid to throw away your trash. If it’s that bad that you can’t buy a new trashcan you might need to just close. If the manager was decent he should’ve apologized to his tables for the extended wait. At least acknowledge us as you walked by 3 times… it’s a shame because we genuinely enjoyed coming here…More

Tessa was absolutely AMAZING!! The service was top notch. We ordered fried crab claws, fried grouper bites, fried shrimp, fried okra, fried catfish and snapper, and sangria. We also got a chocolate caje for dessert from TC bakery and it was so delicious! EVERYTHING was...good!! If you are in town ask for Tessa, she's the best!!More

Shrimp Scampi served with overcooked mushy spaghetti pasta, no sauce either. Was so bad could not eat. Salad leaves were wilted, but charged $6 extra for it. Service equally bad. RipOFF prices. One of the worse over rated restaurants in Tallahassee.

We had a truly delicious meal. Patrick, our server, was attentive and friendly even though they were packed. The gator bites, calamari, fried snapper, and trigger fish were all excellent. We will definitely return!

I Took my daughter there for her 25th birthday. I Called ahead and was told the Low Country Boil with crab added would be $24.99. When we got there and ordered, I again asked the waitress what the Low Country Boil would cost if we...added crab. She assured us it would be just a slight upcharge to add crab and came to our table after checking and told us our total would be $27 instead of $24.99. We thought this was fantastic, so we ordered 3 orders. When we got the bill we were totally shocked! For 3 orders of low country boil, it was 24.99 + 27.00 each. Totally shocked with the bill being over $200, I asked the waitress why the bill was so high. The waitress argued with me that it was due to the tax??? I insisted on talking to the manager after She finally admitted it was her mistake about the upcharge. I was very troubled and disappointed after talking to Travis the manager. He apologized for the mistake but was not willing to discount any of the bill for us. I feel we were mislead and totally taken advantage of by this establishment! I will never step foot in it again!More

The restaurant is poor, unaccommodating, rude, and entirely unconcerned with its customers. On 2.18.2022 my wife ordered Shrimp Scampi. Four small, dried-out shrimp were served on a bed of noodles. All of it was covered with a powdery substance that smelled and tasted of dirty...socks. It entirely lacked garlic and could not be eaten. It was not a question of merely not liking what was served, but the menu billed it as Shrimp Scampi--which it wasn't. This was brought to the attention of the waiter who did nothing but say that he was sorry. No offer was made to replace it. Given the poor quality of the food and because it could not be consumed, we requested that the $17-18 item be removed from the bill. The server said that "we don't do that here, but you can talk to the manager." The "manager" came to the table and said essentially the same thing. When asked why he stated, "because we don't do that and we already made it" and walked away. "Disappointing" is not a sufficiently descriptive term for the experience. The bigger issue is the miserable attitude of employees, on-site management, and how customers are treated. I would urge anyone considering patronizing this restaurant to stay away. All businesses have "bad nights" that can be forgiven. However, the miserable way that this restaurant is run, treats customers, and the quality of its product suggests that these are regular business practices.More
