I had the special, sort of a BLT with a fried chicken breast added...a challenging mouthful. Rather noisy, service slow.

Went for lunch last week to get out, as we were getting cabin fever from cold front. We both had the blackened tuna sandwich with cole slaw and sweet potato fries. Delicious! Friendly staff - other plates passing by looked yummy as well. Successful outing

As close as you can come by the safe haven movie in Southport. Lunch near the harbour, overlooking the water, eating easy seafood and fries. Food is not that really special, but also not bad.

Staff and waiter very nice but the food was average or less. Coleslaw was very dry, with out flavor. Fried fish platter was tasteless. Stuffed shrimp was good as was swordfish special. We have tried this place 3x really wanting to love it but will probably not return except maybe for a burger. Too bad, great location and family owned,... More

Great food, friendly staff and casual atmosphere, matching the slower pace of Southport. Looking for great food in a relaxed setting, you'll love Fishy Fishy.

Went for lunch and not only had fabulous Baja fish tacos but also had the most enjoyable waiter. He was charming and attentive! The view was spectacular even in January. Highly recommended!

Walked along the shore to this great spot. Had wonderful Wedge Salads, sesame seared tuna and enjoyed the fresh quality foods and atmosphere.

We had a combination plate each. Flounder, scallops, oysters and shrimp. All very good and fresh. Try the remolade sauce.

First time visiting Fishy Fishy and really enjoyed lunch. The clam chowder was especially excellent and the rest of our meal was very good too. Service was good and our waiter was very friendly and even seemed to enjoy his job. We will visit again.

I don't know what all the hype is with this restaurant. We were not impressed. I have the fish tacos, which really should've been called lettuce tacos, and they were soggy!

Thank suz882
