“Fresh Fish”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Did you ever wanted to find a place where you can get a fresh piece of fish cooked the way you like it.
This is the place. Located just off of 17th street in Fort Lauderdale.
Very friendly staff with a simple and tasty experience.
Try the fish and chips, any fish sandwich and the conch.

“So Much More Than a Seafood Market”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Located in a strip mall, this first appears as a nice looking fish market. But, there are a few tables and chairs inside and out. Why? Pick the freshest seafood, select the way you wanted prepared and in a few minutes you are enjoying seafood the way everyone wishes they could have it. The have great salads and soups to add to this and what a good surprise. Enjoy it, but watch out they are not open late, so be there before they close.

“A meal at a fish market? Oh yeah!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We were in town overnight waiting to get on a cruise ship. The concierge at our hotel recommended a seafood restaurant across the street...we got lost and asked a guy coming out of Finster Murphy's where the other restaurant was. He told us, but said if we wanted GREAT seafood, eat here. We took his advice and were not disappointed. It was lunch time and we opted for the special, fish and chips. Prepared perfectly! lightly breaded, not battered, but cooked to perfection! Moist and flavorful! We thoroughly enjoyed this little place on the corner!

“Tasty but overpriced”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Really great people and incredible variety. You get to order whatever is in the cabinet displays (amazing stuff) and have them prepare it for you. But the price! Whoa. i guess they are set up for the yachting crowd and not travelers on a budget.
