    Hidden away in a small shopping center. Clean. Proper lighting. Booths and tables. Mixed drinks are pricey but well-made: $11 for a Margarita. I had 6 Long Island Bluepoint oysters. Yummy! Guest and I had the lobster roll with steak fries and lobster bisque soup. Next time we'll try a special of the evening plate. They also have an early bird special menu: 430PM-530PM.

    Mystic Fish is and has always been a great restaurant. I believe I have tried almost everything in the menu and it's all fantastic. The Hogfish is excellent. If you have never dined at Mystic Fish you don't know what you are missing!

    Here is a wonderful place to dine when in Florida. It is truly a hidden gem. I had the swordfish and my wife had the filet with all the trimmings. The appetizers we bought were the calamari and the mussels. Along with drinks the total bill was $90. But you will want to tip generously because the service is outstanding. Bon Apetite.

    The food was OK. We went at 6PM. The salad dressing was very sharp, this was for their up market salad with field greens, apricots, gorgonzola, etc. The sharpness overwelmed the other flavors. The fish was good, but the grouper portion was small. The sauce was excellent but sparce.

    We've tried E&E and Guppy's and were equally pleased with Mystic Fish. The price and quality were perfectly matched. Everything was delicious and had perfect portions. Dessert was wonderful, small but just the right size for one. We actually shared the panna cotta and it was delicious. Thank you for a very nice evening! We will be back!

    My girlfriend and I love Mystic Fish for our date nights. The Hogfish and Salmon are our favorites, but we have never had a bad fish meal. We have never tried anything but fish from their menu, but have heard great things about their meat selections. Highly recommend Mystic Fish for a great meal with an excellent atmosphere.

THE WAIT STAFF IS KNOWLEDGEABLE, EFFICIENT, AND AS THE MEAL PROGRESSED THE ROOM BECAME QUITE NOISY, BUT THE STAFF DID NOT BAT AN EYELASH, JUST KEPT ON ABOUT THEIR TASKS. THE FOOD, AS IT HAS BEEN ON OUR FEW VISITS PREVIOUS, WAS EXCELLENT. WE HAD A LOVELY FAMILY EVENING. MYSTIC FISH IS KNOWN AS A FAVORITE AMONG OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

    Excellent customer service expecially if you make a reservation and let them know it is a special occasion. Hogfish is excellent. Wonderful that you can check the menu daily for specials before you go. Beautiful gem tucked into a shopping center. Once you enter, you feel as though you are on an island in the tropics. Great wait staff, bartenders and management. Great experience everytime! Never fails to impress. Very reasonable prices for the beautiful presentation and menu options!

    We were celebrating our 65th wedding anniversary. The Mystic Fish is our special celebrating place. We had my husband's 80th birthday at Mystic Fish. There were about 12 people there at that party and everyone enjoyed it very much. We are having a 65th anniversary party at my daughter's home on Sunday but we wanted the actual date - 9/3/14 - to be just for the two of us. We had delicious food and excellent service at a reasonable price. Couldn't ask for more than that.

    We love seafood and Mystic Fish has delicious fresh sea bass and grouper entrees. We like the variety of appetizers and desserts. The scallops and the stuffed artichoke hearts are favorites. The flourless chocolate cake and espresso crème de pot are moist and richly yummy! The flavored coffees are a nice ending to the meal. We like to meet with one or two couples regularly and the service is excellent.

    We're from out of town, so when searching for a wonderful seafood experience, Mystic Fish came up on top. It did not disappoint. We shared the grilled octopus, which was delicious. My mother had the panko-crusted hogfish and I had the grouper. This place is a must do when you're in the area.

    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.

    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.
