“Best place to buy fresh fish on Marco!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

Lee Be Fish is a terrific place to eat; the shrimp tacos are legendary! What most folks don't know is that Lee is also a professional fisherman and sells his very fresh fish in his restaurant/shop. Lee almost always has fresh grouper, snapper and gulf pink shrimp. He also often has fresh tuna, plank fish and other local species. For the very best fresh stone crab claws, make the 30 minute drive over to Grimms Stone Crab in Everglades City. Grimms is the shop where the locals buy their crab claws that come straight off the crab boats daily!

“amazing fresh fish”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

After seeing the reviews on Lee Be Fish, we decided to try it for lunch. Charming little place tucked into a little alleyway with cute shops. It's not a sit down restaurant but a walk up to order, which makes it more charming and all of us felt like we were in a little part of Key West, even though it was Marco Island, Fla! There were four of us and we all ordered something different so we could taste everything. My fish tacos were delicious, even though I like corn tortillas not flour. The fish was cooked to perfection with the perfect amt. of spices. My companions ate their fish grilled, and NEVER had I tasted anything like it. The Grouper that Florida is so famous for, was a HUGE piece of fish..flaky, moist and wonderfully seasoned. i would have given it EXCELLENT if it weren't for the terrible sides. The black beans and rice tasted out of a can with a glob of cheese melted on it, and the cole slaw wasn't the best, but with that said, I would go back day after day! The best FRESH fish EVER!!

“Fair last year, fair this year also”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

We returned to Lee B. fish this year hoping for a few more menu items, less surly service and a more pleasant eating experience. The menu was identical, the food unremarkable, the service grudging and the outdoor seating more limited. We were given a no expiration gift card last year. We ate and carried out twice last February and the remaining dollar amount we expected to use this year. However, the proprietor told us the remaining amt would not be honored stating that it was too long after the certificate was issued. We pointed out that there was no expiration date, that we had visited the restaurant twice last year, that we were only in Florida a few weeks a year and that he already had his money. Finally, we were allowed to use the remaining amount which amounted to less than $25 and gave us two seafood tacos, one drink and two sides. The beans and rice combo and the fries were delicious, but the fish and shrimp taco were rather bland and unremarkable.

“Went there four or five times during our last trip on Marco Island”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Fresh and deliciously prepared fish. We love their spices. We returned a few times just to purchase fresh fish and cook it on the grill at our condo
