Description: The Fish House Restaurants are known for their amazing seafood and 2-4-1 frozen Rumrunners. ALWAYS, a wonderful relaxing environment, great customer service, and the freshest seafood! Now what more could you ask for? Our menu offers the best in seafood, as well as great alternative choices! Our seafood dishes include: blackened tuna bites, hot blue crab and shrimp dip, oyster baskets, grouper tacos and lobster tacos - to name a few. The Fish House provides excellent heart healthy items too. You'll love our desserts, our homemade Key Lime Pie "melts-in-your-mouth"! Before you leave, you'll want to check out our store. Take a look at our souvenirs: coolie cups, hats and visors, tanks, t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, and our "one-of-a-kind" fish plate. They make awesome gifts.

They have drink specials and they have dinner specials. And let me tell you, everything is special. Would definitely try the fried lobster nuggets if you visit. The shrimp and corn chowder is excellent too.

Went last Thursday to watch the soccer games... Donna in the bar area was great, very attentive, fast service. Steamed shrimp was amazing, and ordering off the happy hour menu was a plus!

What a disappointment. Headed here on a fairly busy Tuesday night.

The service was slow (we were told there was a party of 25 in the restaurant). It took 15 minutes for our appetizer to come to the table. The jalapeño shrimp popper was crunchy and had good flavor, but the shrimp was small.

Our salads had a nice selection of greens with "homemade" dressing. The pineapple mango dressing didn't taste anything like pineapple or mango and I really question if the blue cheese was homemade.

My wife had the stuffed shrimp which had fairly good flavor, but the shrimp were very tiny. I had the broiled seafood platter. I was shocked when then platter arrived with shrimps, scallops and grouper floating in a pool of fish water and just sprinkled with Old Bay. They had absolutely no flavor and were floating in water. The sides were a disappointment too as the hush puppies were bland and the "roasted red potatoes" we're not roasted at all, boiled potatoes with a little parsley and absolutely no flavor.

I'm not sure if the other reviewers and I went to the same restaurant and maybe we hit them on an off night, but it was a disappointing waste of a vacation night meal.

We won't be back and don't ever order the broiled seafood.

We went twice for the peel-n-eat shrimp special! If you're not wanting to spend a fortune and want more seafood, head here! Cold beer and bright cheerful atmosphere!
