If you don't care about comfortable seating and atmosphere and want good fried seafood at a very fair price this is your place. Shared picnic tables, and very rustic, but I loved the basic fish dinner. They offer a large version for about $3 more--I struggled to finish the basic one--I thought the portions were generous. Wife had the combo fish and scallops and it was great too. We will return for the fish soon! I saw someone posted fish basket for $20?? This is false--the menu is posted on line, and my fish basket was $10.19, so not correct to say pricey--we think the opposite.

We passed by this little "shack" while staying at the Little Harbor Resort. We figured that from the looks and how busy it was it was probably an awesome place to eat. The food was good, but the grouper sandwiches we got had 3 little tiny filets on a bun...not really what we expected for the price. Needless to say we didn't return.

Enjoy eating fresh fish at a picnic table? The Fish House in Ruskin off Shell Point Rd on the way to Little Harbor is a gem of a find. Fresh fish and seafood - served with a light batter which we like - is offered here. Has seasonal specials. Order at the window and dine at picnic tables on your own or make friends. Frequented by locals and snow birds alike. Limited hours during the week. Cost for meals is not cheap, but reasonable.

The Fish House is a no-frills eatery with outside seating and orders taken at the window. The fish and seafood are very fresh, with a light breading. Side orders nothing special, but the seafood is great with large portions. Thursday-Saturday, take your drinks or bottle of wine and enjoy fresh fish and seafood at their picnic tables, reminiscent of the local fish frys of your youth!
