I have been here a number of times for lunch but this was our first dinner... continued casual atmosphere and good food. Portions were large, served hot, with friendly attentive service. We had a water view, which was wonderful. Note that the Placida shops/galleries typically close early so check times if you plan to go prior to dinner.

We have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. I love the atmosphere so old style Florida Charm . The food never disappoints and the serving size is very generous . Last visit was for lunch . We both had grouper sandwiches and they were great.

We all had a wonderful lunch yesterday made especially bright by having Brenda as our server. We haven't been to the Fishery since late last Fall as the food had declined so greatly but since it is such a heavenly view, we decided to give it a try this year. The improvement is due to a talented new chef and... More

We traveled by boat back to the Fishery last week. We use to live in the area years ago. The boat trip took nearly two hour from Punta Gorda but it was well worth the time spent. During the trip we were followed by a pod of bottle nose dolphin and viewed hundreds of giant white pelicans on a small... More

We have been here a few times. Cozy restaurant on the water. You can eat indoors or out on their deck. Mostly a fish variety on their menu. They also have a full bar.

Made a point to stop in today after returning to the area for our second winter season since moving away eleven years ago. We used to come here by boat and tie up to their easy access dock and always enjoyed the food and laid back atmosphere. Nothing seems to have changed... Still laid back and clean with friendly servers... More

Old Florida can still be found in Placida, a small fishing village on the Gulf Coast. The Fishery Restaurant was a jewel of a find just south of Boca Grande bridge. Living 30 minutes north of Placida, the Friday evening drive was pleasant, the staff very welcoming and the food delicious on all counts. Two of us shared the herb... More

I really enjoyed the music of TJ when we were there on the 14th of October. He was funny and charismatic as well as a great singer. The food is good and the scenery is beautiful. The staff out on the deck are great and personable. The bartender is quick with a smile and very efficient.

Always one of our favorite views and with the new chef the food is fantastic. Had the low tide linguini with the perfectly fixed scallops. Service staff was busy but still smiling and pleasant

Although the restaurant was short handed, our server did her best to give us good service. The seafood sampler salad was a disappointment. Iceberg lettuce, a little tomato and some black olives with scarce undercooked seafood doesn't cut it. Definitely not worth $14. The best thing about this restaurant is the view. Wish we had gone with our second choice.

Thank Mary M
