Four of us were looking for a good fish restaurant in Bradenton .We asked a guy at a golf club who suggested Ocean Harvest as the owner had his own fishing boat and fish was always good.
We got there early around 6pm ,very quiet and it took quite a while before we were attended to by a young waitress who was not over friendly.We took advantage of a 2 for 1 offer on beer as we thought the price of wine to be prohibitive.The two men ordered fish fillets with fries and one other veg.while the ladies had mixed fish grills again with fries and one veg.
The meals arrived and we thought them rather sparse .I had one small fillet with the fries and a serving of fried okra .My friend also had a fillet of another fish ,again only a small portion.The ladies mixed fish grill was better with fish, shrimp and scallops also with fries and one veg.
Considering the price, $25 for the mixed fish and $23 for the fish fillet we thought we had been overcharged particularly as we had tax on top.We left a 10% tip which didn't go down well with our waitress.
We had previously visited a fish restaurant in Sarasota Main Street which was better in value and service.
It seems to me that vegetables are not expensive and giving a choice of fries and one veg.is rather mean and making the fish serving larger would have made the price reasonable.
It may be that we picked the wrong night or the wrong food but we were not impressed.
