“Delicious local food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

As a few other reviewers said The Fish House does not look like much, but the food is awesome. My younger daughter and I shared the shrimp and my older daughter got the chicken. Both meats were breaded in a tasty light breading. The shrimp were cooked perfectly, still moist. The chicken was also very good. Sitting outside was not a problem, it gave the meal a nice atmosphere. There were big ceiling fans, so it was not blistering hot. Although I will say the price was just a bit high to sit outside. The servers were very friendly. We had a very good experience, if we are ever in Ruskin we will definitely stop in for some yummy seafood.

“Excellent local fish place”

What a treasure. The bisque soup was excellent! You get a lot of fish for the money and the Key Lime pie was good too!

“Food was good, dinning experience was not.”

Delicious fried shrimp but I was not fond of having to eat outside in the heat, on a dirty looking picnic tables and having to fight flies.

“unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

I found this place on one of the internet sites. I tried several time to find it and drove by without seeing it. That's primarily because it's only open Thurs, Fri and Sat. On those days it's packed and there's no doubt were it is. I got the platter that has fish, shrimp oysters and clams. the first time I substituted bay scallops. It was fantastic. Plenty of everything. The lady that owns it and runs it is a delight. And the seafood doesn't get any fresher. Try it you'll like it. Don't forget the seafood bisque if it's on the menu.
