“Never disappointed”
Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

We've frequented this place over the past several years and we have never been disappointed. On this visit it was quite crowded, but the service and food were still very very good. We will definitely return. Just get there early if you don' t want to wait, it's very popular and not very big.

“Strip mall restaurant serves up tasty seafood”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Informal atmosphere in a strip mall, but food is good. We had the fish taco ($11.99) and the shrimp dinner ($16.49)—both very good. Service was good too.

“Our favorite fish place locally.”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

We live in Venice year-round so we have been going to the local restaurants for about 1.5 years now. This is one we return to often. The fish is always well-prepared and tasty. The portion size is nice and the prices appropriate. The staff are always friendly and attentive, including Robbie herself. It is a small venue, maybe 20 tables and a bar. Usually noisy due to the fact it is usually full. Closed Sunday and Monday. If you want a quiet restaurant with lots of space, this is not it. Come for good food and great service.

“Worth any drive”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Staff at hotel suggested as a locals place. Not a place you might pick from a drive by but this place is well worth it. I tried the fish tacos & have to say the best I have ever had. We also tried Bayou Willy's pasta which was also very good. Finished off with Key Lime pie. Prices are reasonable & all the staff were very friendly. This is not a fancy place but the food is great

“Not sure why everyone likes it so much”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Really it's very popular, but I thought the menu was limited in scope. My fish was blackened unevenly and the vegetables were a little oversalted, but on the other hand the service was great and the restaurant's decor was unpretentious and not kitschy. My parents who live in Venice rave about it though.
