Diner Reviews
  • "the food, wine, and service are amazing. Pick one of the specials, they are always good."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Tried Mystic Fish for the first time after reading raving reviews online and it lived up to every one of them! Can't believe we haven't eaten here before now! I had the dumplings as an appetizer and the Sea Bass for dinner and my husband tried the Steak Tartare as his appetizer and the Grouper special for dinner--everything was spectacular! Can't wait to go back and try something else on the menu!"

  • "We had a pleasant time celebrating an 80th birthday. The complimentary dessert was well presented as well as the rest of our meal. It's always one cut above."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I had not been there in at least 5 years and it was wonderful to encounter great food, and even better, professional service! I will certainly return soon. It gives "Ruby Tuesdays" a giant run for their money!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I can't say enough about this restaurant. This is the fourth time I have been, and each and every time the seafood is perfectly prepared and the service is wonderful. The hogfish is pan seared and finished with a little baking to brown the crumbs - very delicate taste. The scallops are to die for and the lump crab meat cocktail is delicious and comes with a significant amount of delicately sweet lump crabmeat. There was a special cucumber margarita which everyone at the table felt was the perfect cool summer cocktail. Our waiter was one of the best we've ever had and, like the food, I cannot say enough about him. I highly recommend Mystic Fish."

  • "Has great early dining options but later dining is also special. Small plates are exceptional and everything is cooked to perfection. Wait staff is helpful and knowledgeable about menu offerings. Two visits recently, one for early menu and one a little later. Both were wonderful!"

  • "The restauarnt is located close to my neighborhood and rather small, a nice size really. I heard about the food especially the fish...hence the name. It did not disappoint! The hogfish snapper was a perfectly generous portion, pan seared with a light nice crisp and served beautifully. Pete our waiter was personable, professional and timely yet unobtrusive. We will return often!"

  • "Mystic Fish has great food. This is hard to come by in this area. Most places there is something that's lacking even if it's the bread, but Mystic Fish was delicious. I wish I lived closer so I could go more often!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We always love to dine at Mystic Fish. When they have the Hog fish we get it every time. It is delicious! We have enjoyed many of the other items on the menu such as grouper, paella, lobster and many others. They have all been delicious. The bartender also makes great martinis! They also have a great wine selection. I could eat there every day and still love it!"

  • "Great menu, the grilled octopus small plate was the highlight of our meal, highly highly recommended. Went there with a party of four---we all ordered a different seafood plate and it was all wonderful. The scallops in particular were succulent and perfectly prepared. One warning: the ravioli entree is RICH, the one thing on the table we couldn't finish and probably wouldn't order again (though if salty/rich food is your style, you'd love this dish). For a neighborhood hot spot, an excellent place whose menu selection, price and ambiance could fit a plain old Tuesday night out or a romantic special occasion dinner. We will revisit in the future without a doubt."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "THE NIGHT WE WENT THE ELECTRIC WENT OUT AND WE WERE THE LAST TABLE TO ORDER. THROUGH CONVERSATION OUR SERVER JOHN WAS APOLOGETIC BECAUSE HE KNEW IT WAS OUR FIRST TIME EATING THERE AND HE WANTED IT TO BE ONLY THE BEST. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE TO OUR VISIT WAS THE POWER OUTAGE. IF YOU LIVE NEAR PALM HARBOR OR EVEN REMOTELY CLOSE AND WANT WHAT I CONSIDER THE BEST SEAFOOD DINNER EXPERIENCE YOU WILL EVER HAVE YOU NEED TO MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR "MYSTIC FISH" .... YOU WILL REGRET IT IF YOU DON'T.... HOGFISH, WOW.. GROUPER, EXCELLENT.. SEA BASS, EXCELLENT. WE WERE A PARTY OF FOUR AND SHARED OUR DINNER AMONGST EACH OTHER..."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed an early evening dinner, just the two of us, before the arrival of baby #3. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Even though there were plenty of early bird specials that sounded delicious, we opted for main menu items of the grouper and scallops which both were incredibly tasty, larger than expected entrees. We also ordered soup and salads as well as the shrimp appetizer which was so good. We hadn't been to Mystic Fish in a couple of years and had an expired gift certificate that the staff was kind enough to accept without any questions. Would definitely go again to enjoy a delicious seafood dinner. Make reservations early because this place is always packed!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "This is a top notch restaurant and has been ever since it opened. Beyond great seafood, it serves many other entrees of equal quality!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Just moved to the area and my wife was looking for a place to take me for my birthday. Based on some online reviews of Mystic Fish, we decided to try it. We love the decor inside and the option of small plates or full entrees was nice. We chose a few small plates so we could try a variety of offerings. All the food was flavorful and presentation was spot on. Will definitely be back."

  • "My wife and I have been visiting this restaurant for years and have always come away happy."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Was in Clearwater area for vacation... had 4 options for local seafood and we chose Mystic Fish. Perhaps it was the time we ate, but clientele was all seniors. Drinks were a tad too sweet, apps were very good, particularly the Crab Stuffed Artichoke, and entrees were decent sized and mixed in flavor. Added a Lobster tail to a couple of our entrees and they were fine. Sides (Pesto Mashed Potatoes) were odd and not in a good way. One of our steaks were Prime and very good, the other was Choice Rib-Eye and tasty, well seasoned. Didn't try dessert as there was Ice Cream in our neighborhood that we wanted to try. I'd give this a 5 or 6 on a 10pt scale. Not bad, just not very memorable."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Our recent dinner at Mystic Fish was the best dining experience we've had in our twenty five years of visiting various areas of Florida every year! The service was without flaws, and the ambiance was quietly soothing. We appreciated the numerous, yet subdued, displays of colorful salt water fish. The seafood we ordered was served quickly and was superbly prepared. I've never had better raw oysters, having eaten in Alaska through New England. We Delaware Valley folks shall be back!!"

  • "Been there many timesand always great service and wonderful food."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "With my online review, I mentioned that it was our 30th anniversary. We were greeted with Happy Anniversary and ended with a complimentary dessert. Everything in between was wonderful. Two notes to servers and chefs--somewhere there should be mention that the mashed potatoes are spicey & the strawberries on the dessert plate had been sliced with a knife that had cut onions or shallots giving a strange taste. We will return because the food and prices are great--super summer specials!"

  • "Another lovely evening, where everything was perfect!"

  • "One of our favorite places to eat in all of the Tampa area. Food is delicious, service is great, and the prices are very fair. Would highly recommend it!!"

  • "Mystic Fish is a very nice restaraunt with great food, appetizers & drinks. Don't let the name fool you, my husband doesn't really like fish and they have plenty of meat and chicken - steaks and pork chops etc on the menu also. The servers are very attentive. We are happy there is such a nice place to eat in our neighborhood."
