Had dinner tonight and the crab cake appetizer was mediocre like warm and way over priced for the size. Tasted like microwaved food. In addition, salmon was raw. Had to get them to grill it properly. Don’t plan to go back!

Jonah's Seafood House is a favorite stop for any fish dish you desire. Served faithfully by friendly servers, a sumptuous meal awaits. I enjoyed the Cape Cod Clam Chowder and Florida Gulf Grouper with a glass of Cakebread Chardonnay. Great meal.

They have a variety, depends on the diner's tastes I think. I've had 3-4 different entrees, all good. Check with server or management.
