    Having just moved to the area and still felling ourselves around the food scene we were pleased our first special occasion dining experience was Mystic Fish. The seafood dishes chosen were fresh and cooked to perfection. The small filet topped with blue cheese was a great steak and the service excellent. My wife enjoyed celebrating her first birthday as a new Floridian at Mystic Fish. We will become regulars I am sure of it.

    Mystic Fish was an enjoyable experience, for both me and my girl friend! My girl friend has been here several times before, but this was the first for me! I ordered the pork chop and mashed potatoes, very tasty, and my girl ordered lobster tail, small but delicious! I would recommend this to anyone, and would definitely return myself!

    My wife and I went Mystic Fish to celebrate our 32nd Anniversary and enjoyed the whole experience. We arrived and the hostess said it would be about 10 minutes. They quickly found us a nice table away from the middle of the restaurant. Our server, Peter, was excellent as he made recommendations and was always readily available. The food was delicious and they even surprised us with a tasty dessert that we were not expecting. This was not my first time to experience Mystic Fish and certainly will not be our last.

    My wife and I are new to the Palm Harbor area and drove by the restaurant a number of times and noted that there always seemed to be a lot of cars in the parking lot. So we decided to try it. Now we know why the parking lot was always full. The food was great, the service was outstanding. We had seafood dishes - the hogfish (hog snapper) special and their standard menu scallop dish. Both were incredibly good. Heidi was our server - her recommendations were prefect, the service unparalleled, and her attentiveness and personality a role model for others. We recommend Mystic Fish for a special occasion, an outing with friends that enjoy excellent food, or just a date night away from the daily grind. You won't be disappointed.

    Our grown children, visiting from overseas, had never been to Mystic Fish. Both sets of parents are very big Mystic Fish fans, so we decided to take them for dinner on their last night in town. They loved the decor and the food. We arrived about 10 minutes early for our reservation, but our table for six was ready and waiting for us to be seated immediately. Our server, Joelle, was knowledgeable about the menu, and was always there when we needed her. The quality of the food was exceptional, as usual. Our kids loved the place. We will all be back!

    We had not been to Mystic Fish for many years, but when we planned a special dinner with old friends, we thought of this favorite from years ago, and were not disappointed. The lobster bisque that we fondly remembered, is still truly scrumptious, our entrees perfectly prepared, and beautifully presented, and new innovative smaller desserts make the perfect ending to a lovely dinner.

    We went for the early bird special time. Price and food was very good. Service was actually a little to quick for me. Everything was on our table the instant we finished a course. I was with my wife and would have liked a chance to chat with her. We were in and out in about 45 mins. We will go back. Quite a few positives.

    We've been faithful patrons for years and are never disappointed. The menu is creative without trying too hard. Yet old favorites come back to the rotation in due season. The entrees are always perfectly prepared and hot, as appropriate. The wine list is quite good. While we do have favorite wait staff members, all of them are well trained, friendly, and knowledgeable. Richard oversees the dining room with aplomb and charm. Mystic Fish never disappoints.

    We save Mystic Fish for celebrating special events. I had the scallops on a Thai chili sauce. Not spicy at all - tangy and delicious. My husband enjoyed the pistachio crusted salmon, cooked perfectly. After dinner, there are petite desserts, just the right size to finish off the meal so that we don't feel guilty. Professional service. Low noise level so we can talk and enjoy dinner.

    We took friends to celebrate a birthday. We told our waiter we wanted to take our time so we could talk and not be rushed. We said do not put our food order in until we finished our salad. My wife had not finished her salad and the meal arrived!! On the mixed grill the salmon was dry and overcooked. Told the waiter and he did nothing about it! The waiter also had a egotistical attitude which we never experienced at Mystic Fish in the past!! Not one of our best experiences.

    You could not find a better Fish Chowder if you were in Bermuda! Try the Hog fish ( type of snapper), the Duck is outstanding and I have been told the rack of lamb is as well. We are vacationing here in Innisbrook and have been to Mystic Fish twice and plan to go again tonight. The fish chowder is addicting! Try the cheese platter as well as some of the small plates for shared appetizers. The food presentations are very nicely done. Very friendly wait staff and great service. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    The food was good with small portions. But the price was fair for the portions. The wine list was very poor, probably done by the liquor sales guy rather than some one who knows wine. The service was exceptional. Will be back, but get some good wines and give a better pour, because that was pitiful for the price.

    While there are many great beaches on Florida's West Coast I prefer to go to Clearwater beach so that I get at least one dinner at Mystic Fish on my vacation. My husband and I love to order a lot of appetizers/starters from this Mystic Fish because they are ALL delicious. My favorites are the Asian short ribs and lobster escargot. LOVE this restaurant!!!

    When I needed to pick a restaurant for my husband's 80th birthday celebration, it was a no brainer. Our daughter and family went with us, and were very impressed, as this was their first time there. I introduced them to the Bermuda Fish Chowder, which is the best i've ever had. The birthday dessert, which was shared, was a chocolate mousse kind of delight and a small Creme Brûlée, which was wonderful. The service by Brian was impeccable. We would definitely recommend Mystic Fish in Palm Harbor to anyone without hesitation.

    We visit Mystic fish as often as we can. The food is fresh and delicious! We brought friends on a Thursday night and was dellightfully surprised that they offered a "pre fixed" menu for that night as well as the regular menu. We ordered from both. Our server for the night was very friendly and had knowledge of the menu. Mystic Fish is our favorite place to go to for fresh seafood!
