Highly rated locally. Tried it and won’t be back. Had to ask 3 times for more water. It took over an hour to get our food. Only one table of 6 in there. Our order was so messed up and the waitresses were not able...to comprehend what was wrong with the order despite being slowly explained 3 times. I paid $22.99 for 7 shrimp before it was all over. There are other seafood places in Tallahassee. Try them out.More

Used to eat there once a week, but it’s really gone down. The food isn’t as good with the current owner. Gotten rather dirty and junky too, We’ve gone twice when there was a crudely written sign on the door that they weren’t open. If...they can’t handle the hours posted on the door, change them. Lunch seems to be a problem. Hate to see this happen, hope they can get their act back together soon.More

Our food was Luke warm. Was not the same as other times we ate there. We stopped in to get diner and walked in the middle of a worker getting nasty with a couple who were obviously not happy with their food. We saw the...boy in the black shirt from the kichen follow the people out after the checkout girl said they can leave and not worry about their bill. Bad food, arguing with customers, Workers in no masks. Won't go back.More

Small and local, and the service and food are excellent. My wife loves the combination platter, while I'm partial to the catfish and mullet. If you have room, definitely get some pie. Well worth regular visits!

Looking for great seafood this is the hidden place to try. The grilled shrimp was perfect with cheese grits, slaw (real slaw) and the hushpuppies all to perfection. Good portions for a great value!

The Fisherman's Wife is a hidden gem in Tallahassee. The food is fresh, and super tasty! I ordered the grilled grouper plate which came with cheese grits, hushpuppies, fried potatoes, and cole slaw. Everything on my plate was delicious. It was a TON of food....You will not leave here hungry! Our server, Delaney, was excellent. We will definitely be back!More

We have eaten there several times, each time hoping the recommendations of friend are right. But! Seafood is bland. Last time I ate there I had tasteless fish, runny instant grits and hushpuppies that were so undercooked they smeared on my palate. I appreciate that...some people will like this place for whatever reason but we are not with them.More

I had a nice lunch with family. The shrimp was battered and tasty, and the hush puppies were fresh but simple. My mother said her crab cakes were amazing. Beer and wine are available, order extra since hot sauce is available. We didn’t have dessert.

We just visited for our 10th time and have not been let down yet. The grilled grouper was as good as it gets! If you like shrimp there is none better, don't even think about going to the chain restaurants. No fancy huge building, just...good Florida seafood. Save some room, Grab some dessert and you will leave blissfully happy! Whst a value!More
