The blackened mahi sandwich is amazing. I love the fries! They're like steak fries and crinkle cut fries had gigantic fry babies. I love there outdoor seating; fun people/boat watching. Higher priced, but worth it. Just a fun place. It's right by Isla Blanca, so...easy to grab lunch and go back to park.More

The mahi-mahi tacos were the best ever! Hand cut French fries were delicious! Give this place a try. The outdoor dining makes it perfect!

Delicious food with large portions! I got the shrimp tacos which were amazing and my boyfriend got the mahi tacos which were also great. Fries are good and you get a ton! Friendly owner.

I'm so impressed with the mahi tacos and mahi sandwich I don't want to go home to Nebraska! My favorite meal anywhere I travel, is mahi tacos. This place is by far the best I have ever had! The owner is very friendly and accommodating....The fries are HUGE. Come here hungry and enjoy the view and cold drinks while you wait for your food.More

We have a home on the island and EVERYTIME we come we have to go to Mahi Nics. I am embarrassed to say that I have only tried 1 dish- the blackened Mahi sand which- it’s soooo good- I get it everytime and haven’t ever...ordered anything else- although everything others have around me look awesome too. But the Mahi fish sandwich is incredible! My husband and I split it and we always leave full and sooo happy!More

Cold beer and huge order of fries. Hated to see you close with the island shutdown. i bought one of the salt guns, just like Billy's. Fries with the pulled pork was most excellent.

Outside dining with a view of yachts and the bay, really nice on a sunny day when you have time for a beer. The blackened tuna sandwich is big and blackened the way it should be. We had some teenagers with us- the one from...Germany is a picky eater and thought the "8 mile burger" and fries were excellent and the place got a rating of 10 out of 10. The one from Italy loved her mahi tacos and fries. Good place to go if you are hungry- portions are big. Owners are very nice.More
