We heard of this from conversation with other guests where we were staying. It is behind the very active Santini Shopping Center, in the middle of a marina. We arrived to find guests outside waiting to be seated, but by taking an inside table we were seated immediately and waited on promptly. If you want water, please ask for it.

We shared a plate of oyster coquille, broiled oysters with a topping of crab and cheese and a side salad. For dinner we each had the crunch grouper, covered in corn flakes and deep fried, just slightly too much, with the extra charge sweet potato fries. This is served with cole slaw.

The food was so hot, it was impossible to eat it immediately and you had to take tiny bites to avoid burning your mouth. The grouper was flakey and tasty, while the fries came from some of the largest sweet potatoes I've seen.

Although the place was crowded our server was attentive and we were served in a reasonable amount of time. Definitely worth a return trip.

We have been to the FMB area for several winters. Each trip, we have lunch and dinner at the Fish House several times. The atmosphere is casual, the view of the marina is nice, the service is very good, and the food is always enjoyable. Families would be comfortable at this location. It is tucked away behind a marina but is worth finding.

Arrived to a crowd here at Happy hour. Still we were seated fairly quickly. Service was decent, food was good and priced right. To make this better, I would have loved if the restaurant was totally open to the outdoors instead of being screened in.
