“The reviews are true”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Based on its number one rating for dining on Marco Island, I took my family here for lunch during the Christmas break. The general consensus was the best fish tacos they had ever tasted, Raves for the rice and black beans, fries and key lime pie as well. I had the fish and chips and nothing beats fresh fish. The best compliment of all was that everyone agreed we had to go back again. We did, and once again, great food, and I should mention great prices. it will not break the bank!
A little out of the way and hard to find, but worth the effort. Don't expect a fancy restaurant. It is really a small fresh fish store, with a kitchen, and take out is the order of the day. There are a number of outdoor tables within a few steps of the restaurant, and many of their customers enjoy the Florida sunshine with their meal.
Highly recommended.

“Wow!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

This place is a hole in the wall, in a very good way. Very limited menu, pretty much fish and shrimp, grilled or fried, with fries or beans and rice. The fish is the fresh catch of the day (literal terms) and the preparation is simple, yet among the tastiest I have ever had (and I am a seasoned traveler with a love for fresh grilled fish). This is a must go!

“Fresh food & friendly staff”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Lee Be Fish definitely lived up to its top ranking on Trip Advisor. 6 of us arrived for dinner and all left satisfied. Very fresh and tasty food (I had the combo island platter with snapper and shrimp). Everything was seasoned to perfection, and they offered generous proportions for inexpensive prices. If you come to Marco, Lee Be Fish is a must-try!

“3rd time's a charm”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The first try, they were out of food, the second try they were closed (on a Saturday night) and the third time they were not only open, but had food and it was good. However, as other reviewers have said, you sure need to call before you go. Although their fish and fries were very good, this is certainly not a full service restaurant. You order at a counter, from a limited menu and choose a table outside, where someone will bring it to you. You can buy a beer or an individually bottled wine. It's a funky, fun place, but not somewhere you go for waiters and a wine list.

“True Florida experience”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

A very small place with fresh fish. Fantastic fish tacos & beans & rice. Snapper was the catch of the day & it was great! We are outside done there is only one or 2seats inside & it was quite busy. We had a little trouble funding it. You have to look carefully. We ended up passing it & going through a parking lot to get there. I would make the drive to Marco island just for this fish!
