Really enjoyed the flavor of this fresh shrimp and crab salad entree. Very reasonable prices here. My husband was very pleased his grouper fingers with beans and rice. Fast, friendly service!

Staff was friendly and helpful I had the hog fish while my family did Mahi mahi sandwiches. We all enjoy fresh fish and this hit the spot. We made a point of trying as many places as possible during our week s vacation. This was one of our favorite lunch places. The only reason I gave 4 stars is the... More

This place is a little small inside to eat, but if you are hungry for good seafood, this is the place to go. they also have a section where you can buy fresh seafood to dessert.

Homemade sausage! Really in the Keys! Also fresh seafood fixed right. Homemade breads just really a great surprise. It is not a place you would stop in from the outside. Just very basic inside but the food is great!

My wife & I had a great dinner here last evening. 1/2 of the place is a fish market and the other 1/2 a nice little restaurant with fresh daily seafood. My wife had their clam strips & I had their green tomatoes on mahi mahi. Add ice tea with their homemade desserts & you are good to go!

I had the lunch menu Grouper Fingers which came with coleslaw and one side which I chose potato salad. It was AWSOME! The fingers were fried golden brown and very fresh. The potato salad was very good too. I washed it down with Polander beer on tap. Could not be better!

Checked out some dinner places and found the Fish Market. Sounded good. Noticed they closed at 6:30 pm. Kinda early! Called at 6 o'clock to make sure we could get seated. Lady said if we could be there before 6:15 they would seat us. Barely made it at 6:10. Small place that combines a fish market with the restaurant. Not... More

I had doubts, but a local kept talking about how good their Johnny Rambler sandwich was. It was the best fish sandwich I have ever had ( blackened). My husband had a Mahdi sandwich that he said was excellent. We will return in March 2017.

But not here.The women who waited on us was very attentive and so nice. A great dining experience. I would recommend this place to everyone. The owners were on site and very... More
