I read the glowing reviews and couldn't wait to try The Fish House. We had to wait though because they're only open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11-8. We did get take out, but the fish was mushy, and fries were soft. Could've been...More

We did takeout. The place is packed when they are open. The portion of fish was big. We shared an order and had plenty. It was really good. It is a must do at least once.

The fish house is where you go for seafood without all the fanfare. You can eat at the picnic tables or do take out. The grouper was good and the fish was very good. They have an amazing amount of sides and deserts. Great for...More

This place is awesome! Great fish-mostly fried but very fresh. You sit at picnic tables outside. You give your order and pay and just wait for your food. We had oysters and shrimp, cole slaw and fries-so good!
