Went for fresh fish and decided on the sea bass. It was a beautiful cut and wonderful baked with salt, pepper, and lemon.... delicious. They have a large selection of lobster in a tank so you can choose. There is a smaller selection of various shell fish and other varieties. The store was clean and staff were helpful.

Wonderful fresh fish, any size lobsters and they cook them for you, best extra large shrimp for grilling or stuffing, cannot go wrong. Dakota was always so friendly & when we called in our order it was always correct. All workers are knowledgeable and friendly. Best fish market in the area for sure.

Though the fish is fresh, the prices are really outlandish. There are many fish places in Sarasota with the same quality at a much more reasonable price
