It's kinda crazy that good fresh fish isn't easy to find on the Gulf Coast but there you have it. The Fishery in Placida's the little fishing harbor is consistently satisfying. Sure - an occasional hit or miss (i.e. small salad filled w/ blah, white iceberg lettuce or an overpriced SINGLE softshell crab appetizer) but for Mahi, Redfish, Grouper (the real stuff - not the Viet Namese catfish other places foist off as grouper) this is the place. My fave is blackened but other options include baked, grilled, etc.. Have had the Shrimp Tortuga more than once- always a good choice, the baked stuffed flounder (light, fluffy, not the least bit "fishy") was a bit bland for my taste but I imagine many, like my mom, prefer their fish that way. Go for lunch or before sunset to enjoy the waterfront view. It's busy but the recent wait wasn't long and the service friendly.
