“Wonderful seafood..”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We had scallops and shrimp. Both were fried with very thin batter.
They were great. The okra was also very good.

“Greasy, bland, soggy plate of food!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

My wife and I drove (05-31-14) twenty miles (one way) to try the food at this establishment due to the TripAdvisor rating...never again. I ordered the soggy crab/shrimp combo. Both the crab and shrimp were greasy and in need of a bath in Old Bay seasoning. The fries were under cooked (limp) and seemed to be prepared using 10w30 oil. My wife's fish/shrimp combo was just as savorless with soft and wet undercooked fish. Our order totaled $38.00, too steep of a price for this filth...fool me once, maybe (ok they did). I will not be fooled twice. The rating does not communicate the truth!

“Amazing food at The Fish House!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

When visiting Ruskin you may miss out on some amazing seafood if you don't try The Fish House. When we first saw all the cars parked around this area we were confused as to what all the people were doing. Then we ate there and now know that this is a place we will return to every time we go to Ruskin.

“Can see why it is so popular with locals ...”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Renting a townhouse in Little Harbor, we drove by the Fish House several times before stopping on for lunch near the end of our trip. It was great - not gourmet dining, but very fresh, awesome service, and very good value. This place was crammed with locals eating there for lunch when we stopped by, and it was obvious that they ate there a lot ... and were recognized as such. So - real nice and fresh, wonderful service, very good value.

“The Fish House visit”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

The Fish House is not open everyday. The fish is fresh. And well prepared. This a very busy place so plan to wait. You can call in your order and pick up your food at the to go window. All seating is outside. May not be the best place to go if it is raining if you loan to dine in. Worth the waistband will return.
