    Mystic Fish is always a must when we're visiting Florida. Over the years, we've found that the quality and inventiveness of the food has been outstanding. We also enjoy the eclectic decorations -- the unique lighting fixtures and the tropical fish. This time, I had my favorite Bermuda fish chowder, followed by grouper with a wonderful vinegrette sauce. My wife had the Mystic Paella and wouldn't share it with me. All in all, a great dining experience and we'll be back!

    Mystic Fish is a great place to go for a fantastic evening out. Pete, our server, was right on. He didn't hurry us. Time was given to enjoy our cocktails, then apps, then our meal which was the tastiest beef short ribs and lobster tails. We definitely will return.

    Mystic Fish continues to be one of the areas great bargains especially the early bird special which for $12.50 provides a great meal served by a professional wait staff. In this case our group of six following a movie caught the early bird special. Great food and noise level allowed for pleasant conversation. Never disappointed. My wife and I continue to rate it extremely high after eating there for over 15 years.

    The food was exceptional -- we were a party of four and all ordered different entrees, from bouillabaisse to scallops, to rack of lamb and filet mignon - every dish was perfectly executed, beautifully presented and delicious. And service was attentive and professional. A five star rating from us!

    I would not go here during season. Too busy, too crowded, and the tables are too close. Best for early bird or late reservations if you want to avoid the crowds at the height of season. The food is very good; wine and dessert choices outstanding. Lots of options for varied appetites. We were a bit rushed in by the waiter, but that was probably due to the crowds. In a nice restaurant like this you want to take your time and enjoy the food. Atmosphere is not anything special if you are looking for a quiet romantic spot. Foodies will love it though. Make a reservation, for sure!

    Everything was very good: the warm dinner rolls, the lobster bisque and the hogfish and the dessert. The waitress was a very nice young lady and my friend and I (it was my friend's birthday) had a very pleasant dinner. The key to a good meal is FRESHNESS and everything was fresh. I liked it so much that I am bringing 2 more friends next week.

    We had our first anniversary at Mystic Fish and had a great night. My wife and I are both restaurant managers and can be hard to wow sometimes, as we are very critical of "how it should be". The food was hot, quick, and cooked perfectly. Our server (Pete), did a great job. He was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. He even brought over a complimentary dessert do congratulate us on our anniversary. A nice touch! It's nice to see a small neighborhood restaurant run with class and professionalism. We will be back often.

    Superb food, restful ambiance and right in the neighborhood. Patrons include business men, young romantic couples, retirees, and even a family with older kids once in a while. The place to go for a special occasion or just a great dinner. It doesn't advertise because it doesn't have to. Its a Palm Harbor hidden treasure.

    First time we tried this restaurant, and the first time I have ever ventured from the usual - Grouper. Tried Hogfish, and seriously...I couldn't have found a better dinner anywhere. The taste, the presentation, and the portion - phenomenal. Our server was wonderful as well, very helpful with information regarding the different menu items, and Jill was believable - not just saying what she thought we wanted to hear. Overall, this restaurant was like dining at a friend's house, who just happened to be a great chef!

    Thank you Open Table. We would not have found this place otherwise. The drab outward appearance in a strip mall where all locations have the same yellow awning was not a good start. BUT, server Brian was phenomenal. Stone Crab were out of this world. Asked Brian whether hot or cold, no equivocation, cold and he was right. Real cloth warmed with lemon juice for clean up. Conundrum in a proper ice bucket at 42$ was great. We split the BBQ shortribs app with the Chilean Sea Bass. Both excellent, the ribs, tender and made on location, the Sea Bass with light very crispy outside and tender creamy not overcooked but nice an warm in the middle. fantasic evening. best outing in the Dunedin-Safety-Tarpon-Clearwater area in many months....
