The key lime pie was great, the fish and chips were good. I felt the fish was battered too heavily, but that might be just me. Everyone else loved theirs and raved about it. Lots of character in this little place - worth a visit...More

This is first and foremost a fish market. You can get the freshest Florida seafood-- lovely swordfish and gulf shrimp-- as well as real Maryland lump crabmeat. Family owned. The prices are high, but so is the quality. The enthusiastic owners started serving lunch a...More

I had the haddock and chips, on the staff's recommendation. It was OK, but not worth the price. Not in a rush to go back.

The fish here is so fresh (never frozen), the selection so wide, that I don't buy fish or seafood anywhere else. They have prepared seafood salads that are delicious and house-made, and you can get carryout made to order. There's also a patio in back...More

Went for the first time today and had the blackened marlin sandwich and the smoked mussel salad. Both were great. The mussel salad is a must try but is expensive at $22 per lb. I will be going back.

The seafood that comes from this hidden away shack is excellent. Menu is simple: numerous seafood sides/salads, consistently enjoyable soups, and made-to-order sandwiches or platters. For less than $15/person, America Seafood is inexpensive enough to visit often and the quality/selection is good enough to want...More
