Nice atmosphere. Very reasonable price. Tasty arenas, though not the real thing. Very very well cooked salmon and mahi-mahi, though this last one was spice and it was not mentioned. The wine list was poor, to say the least. A better wine list would definitely drive this place above average qualification!

Pescados Seafood is a small restaurant located in the town of Midlothian, Va. It sits in a shopping center surrounded by other places to eat. We were surprised how much business it draws. The food is good but a little pricey. The menu is isn't too large, which I consider a good thing. The waitress was friendly, but I thought... More

Consistently one of the better places in midlothian to eat. Revamped menu and always unusual choices you can't get from any other place in town

Great little restaurant in a strip mall in Midlothian. Calamari was some of the best I have ever had and the conch fritters better than in the islands. Those were just the appetizers. The entrées were equally as good, as well as dessert and service. Highly recommend. They don't take reservations but the wait was not long and they have... More

We have been trying to go to Pescados for a few years now and for some reason, always end up somewhere else despite many friends trying to get us there. Friends asked us to go and this time, we went and it turned out it was Pescados "date night." I thought our waitress was very friendly; she knew the menu,... More

Wow, what a great restaurant. The seafood was great and the waiter was also very good. We had the mussels appetizer to start which was really good. The mussels and broth was perfect with the garlic bread. The waiter recommend the seafood enchilada based on being the house favorite. Couldn't agree more. My wife had the crab cakes which were...

I ordered the Enchilada Acapulco (filled with lobster, caramelized onions, + other great tasting ingredients), my wife went for the Cabo Crab Cakes. Delicious. Desert was... More

The best conch fritters I ever had, better than the ones I have in key West, bite size and very, very little dough, all conch. Had the main for lunch, was excellent. My friend had the Rock Fish which was also excellent.

This is not your every day seafood restaurant. The food is so fresh and delicious. The service is paced and attentive. We had a slice of Key Lime pie that was heaven. This is a quaint local gem.
