“Great lunch!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

We were trying to find a place for lunch and found the Island Fish Company. Service was terrific, the fresh catch and conch chowder were fabulous. Would definitely return for another meal.

“Good food”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Stopped to let traffic die down. Ate the shrimp platter and sweet tea. The food was very good. Had to wait a little bit to get waited on but once the server came , it went very well. Only bad thing was the sweet tea. Must have been instant cause it tasted like sea water. Yuk !!! Other than the tea, it was a good place to eat.

“Great Views, Friendly Service”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

After a disappointing start to our dinner plans we chose Island Fish Co on a whim. We are so glad we did! The menu is HUGE with lots to choose from (even our picky eater found something they enjoyed) and the deep fried key lime pie was amazing! Our food arrived quickly and our server was very friendly as well. Overall this restaurant saved our dinner plans! The amazing view and setting made it that much better!

“terrible experience”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Ate here on Christmas. Was supposed to be a perfect romantic meal however we were completely disappointed. Our service was terrible. The waiter forgot to put in my entree order and it ended up coming 20 minutes late, so we ate our entrees separately. The place was extremely noisy even though we asked for a quiet spot. It was very windy blowing things off of our table. The staff refused to pull down the plastic screens because they said a group was eating outside and they didnt want to make them feel "separated", so the rest of us suffered. The apps we got were Tuna Tataki and Conch Ceviche which were both terrible. The lobster bisque however was truly amazing (the one saving grace). Our entrees were average at best, but again, they were served 20 minutes apart. We came away with a $140 bill and a bad taste in our mouths. I would never return here. The worst dining experience in 2 weeks in the keys for us.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

My husband, daughter and I loved this place!! We went for lunch 1 day and breakfast a day or 2 later. We enjoyed the location on the water, the tiki hut looking restaurant, the food and the service. All were exceptional!! We would definitely go back here.
