“The best place to enjoy a peaceful meal.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner and breakfast at this restaurant and both times the food and service was excellent. Sits on the Halifax River and enjoyed watching the pelicans and dolphins as we ate our meals. It's not fancy at all but it was one of the best places we visited for both meals. We had a group of 7 and everything came the way it was ordered and service was great!

“"Captain" George can't take criticism”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I reviewed this place last month and I apparently hurt "Capt" Georges feelings when I said that the girl at the register was a McJob. Well I apologize to the young lady and the "Capt" but I stand by my review about the food and service which he failed to respond to. We were missing items from our order and when brought to servers attention, he failed to bring the items. After waiting for some time we asked another server and he brought the items right our. The food was so so. The "Capt", after slamming, went on to say he read some of my other reviews and said "heck, you don't even like Aunt Catfish and that's the best place around" If he had truly read my review he would have seen that out of a party of 7, 5 of us got sick to different degrees, the worst being my 9 year old grandson who had to be taken to the ER at Bert Fish, or how other reviewers in the same time frame reported getting sick after eating there. "Capt" I'm sure if it happened to your kids or grandkids, you too would not give it a rave review. I too have read some of your responses and it seem a lot of your critics "make you sick" Don't worry, I'll take your warning and never return there

“I love the Reuben!!!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We took some friends here the other night and they loved it! I don't usually eat fish but I decided to try the flounder Reuben and it was amazing! My friend got blackened shrimp and she was very happy with the flavor and the portion size. The hush puppies are yummy and make sure you try the sweet corn nuggets, they're little deep fried pieces of heaven! My friends daughter didn't like her pulled pork and they had no problem taking it back and getting her some shrimp which she loved. They went above and beyond for us( think is it was the manager) he kept checking back to make sure everything was good. My family has eaten here quite a few times and have never been disappointed, which is why I don't understand the negative reviews. But I also work in a restaurant and know how people tend to exaggerate any problem on these review sites.

“Great food great value”

“Great Flounder!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

This is one of those out of the way places located in what basically looks like an old warehouse with an unpaved parking lot.

You order at a counter, then find a place to sit.

The waitress finds you & delivers your order.

But, it is located on the Intercoastal!!

Fantastic views of the water, boats moving back & forth, seabirds of all sorts, & the dolphins.

So peaceful, like be in a nature preserve.

And, the flounder iz fantastic!!

So, don't let appearances keep you away.

The view & the food is great...
