Stop at the lunch wagon for the freshest fish lunch you'll find on the island. The fish sandwiches, tacos and plate lunches are made-to-order and large enough to share (unless you're very hungry). Seating is at picnic tables in a shaded area next to the wagon.
The adjacent Fish Market sells beautiful freshly-caught fish and will pack your selection in ice for safe traveling to your condo.

I guess this is my favorite place on the island by the amount of times we have eaten here! The fish comes form the fish market across the parking lot and it is perfect and freshly caught. The tacos are great and I always have her papaya seed dressing on the side salad. There are other items on the menu that look good but I am devoted to the tacos......

This is a great lunch spot is your looking for a good deal and great food!

For about $10 we enjoyed quite a feast. The fish tacos are delicious and quite large - if you aren't starving two might be too many. My husband and I had the beer battered ahi and it was awesome. The mac salad was a great side, as was the caesar salad. FYI, the pasta salad is more like a Greek pasta salad and does have olives. The service was quick - even with four orders in front of us it didn't take long at all to get our food.

We sat under the little awning near the fish house and enjoyed the warm breeze. Watch your feet as there were quite a few small ants under us, though they didn't bother us at all.

Everything was priced very well and the food was great. You can even see the boats drive up and drop off fresh fish. We watched them pull a 100lb tuna out just as we were getting there - really cool!

We've eaten here 3 times already and have tried the Ono and Ahi as the fish plate of the day, the fish tacos, and the Seared Ahi. My favorite was the Seared Ahi. The Ono was best with just salt and pepper, and the Ahi was very good and held its own with the Cajun seasonings. How can you get better than fresh-caught fish, simply prepared and cooked perfectly??
