“Best seafood in New Smyrna Beach”

I have lived in New Smyrna Beach for 11 years and having checked out most, if not all, of the local seafood places, I will say that this is the best one. The seafood is always fresh, and the prices are very competitive. The service is always friendly. The settings are ok, not very cozy, but fine. Some of the best buys at the store counter are a fantastic she-crab soup (sold frozen), salmon dip, clams dip, any fresh catch. If you want to eat at the restaurant section, the blackened Mahi sandwich is always excellent, as are the fried oysters. You can check the menu here: http://www.allmenus.com/fl/new-smyrna-beach/89401-oceans-seafood/menu/ . All in all, great food, a very reasonable prices, in a rather banal setting. Well worth the visit with friends and/or family, but not suitable for a business meeting or any formal occasion.

This is both a small restaurant and fish market. Orders are placed at the counter and then delivered to your table in take-out containers. Large portions. I had the 12 shrimp basket and shrimp were large and perfectly cooked, fries were average. Shrimp salad in pita was just OK. For same price there are many good sit-down nice restaurants in town.

I only visited the fish market, but this place is small so you experience the whole overall feel. The fish was some of the best I have had, and at an amazing value! The staff is super nice and patient. The place is a little run down, but not more than most fish markets with small food counters. This is definitely the best place to buy fresh fish in the area!

I had the grilled Mahi-mahi sandwich. It was slightly under-cooked with an adequate piece of mahi. Given the other reviews I expected something remarkable. The sandwich was good, but not great; great would have been fully cooked and a bigger piece of Mahi. I live here and have pretty unlimited access to good fish, so my point of view is probably different from people who live inland and who don't have access to fresh fish routinely. The cost was almost $10 with tax, so again somewhat underwhelmed at that price.

On the plus side, the place was spotlessly clean, the guy who took my order was very friendly, hepful and funny. The seafood market had fresh mussels at half the price of Publix, so that was good. The restaurant was moderately busy with what seems to be very regular, satisfied customers. I was there at an odd time, right about 4PM so it was probably pretty busy for that time frame. My overall impression was that it was a good place to go to get good fish. I would opt for the fish sandwich next time, I think.

The best fish sandwich that I have ever had. Cost was less than $6. The bun is fresh and the sandwich has lettuce, onions and a tomato slice. The pasta side dish is very good and the french fries are O.K., but skip the potato salad, it is the worst that I have ever had at a restaurant.
