“A must go !”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The restaurant will stop some of you but keep going and discover the inside... their terraces is on the water and you eat in the pelicans company! Waitresses were really nice and the service quick and well done... concerning the food, and after eating at crabby bills next door, there is no photo as we say in France ... the menu is reduced to 15 or so choices which means they are concentrating on only this. It is fresh and it goes from peel and eat shrimps to shrimp quesadilla, buffalo shrimps or fish or shrimp tacos.I had a fresh fish spread which was really good. The must ? Their prices. All is less than $11 ! They also have a large choice of beers and beverages.
Don't talk about it to everyone but go there instead of the trap tourist next door !

Tripletail sandwich was good, great selection of local and micro-brewery beers. Excellent location literally on the water.

“Great time in the sun....”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Weavelled down from Michigan. This was our first time to The Bait House...... Had a great time, sitting out in the sun, right on the water, birds all around, dolphins swimming by, pelicans sitting near us, and some great variety of island music playing on a nearby speaker.... The food was excellent. We had a sampler plate with Grouper as the main fish. We also tried their home-made bowl of Clam Chowder, and a Florida beer called Copperhead. The sampler was a bit pricy, but you expect that for a big tourist area. I liked how the locals would just stop by in their boats, and joke with everyone. Also liked the tame pigeons, walking between the tables, looking for snacks... Overall, it will be a great memory, and we plan to stop in again, when we are here.

“Best service ever!”

Had a wonderful meal here. Best beer on the beach by far, and the staff was amazing. They love what they do and it shows. They were very personable.
