Tired of eating in tourist traps , then this is the place to go ! Great food, great atmosphere .
I had the blackened salmon over rice pilaf , fabulous . After 'restaurant' food' all week , it really hit the spot. This is not a fancy place but great prices and great food. Order at the counter, sit at a table in the back, help yourself to condiments . Loved it !

This little seafood market has a wonderful feature...a small dining room. You place your order at the counter in the seafood market and take a seat in the contiguous dining room. Your meal is brought into you when ready. Fried oysters have a light, delicate batter. Shrimp are plump & perfectly done. Many choices of fresh fish. Ice cold beer. Cracked conch, when available. Conch salad (similar to a ceviche), when the conch is available but the most remarkable thing on the menu is conch fritters.

I've had conch fritters at many, many places throughout the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and south Florida. On a scale of one to ten, the Mid-Peninsula conch fritters are an eleven.

What a surprise! I was searching Trip Advisor for a local seafood restaurant and found Mid Peninsula as I was wanting a good grouper sandwich. This place had good reviews and deservedly so. This is a quirky little restaurant and not for those that want fine dining. But if you want a great meal this is it. Mom and I chose the grouper dinner with fries, coleslaw and cornpuppies. I like mine fried extra crispy and she likes hers soft. The fish was fried to perfection for both of us. The portions were very generous and both of us took home "to go" boxes and had a second meal. The grouper heated up in the toaster oven and was good that evening.
Kiko was the employee behind the counter and brought our drinks and meal to us although it is self serve. It was late afternoon and slow so he spent time chatting also.
We will definitely go back and try something else as they have a good variety of fish and salads available.

Most fish for the money spent. I like mine fried like mom made it. Breading is very good and not to heavy. Atmosphere is "the beach".
