    Service is always friendly yet professional. The food is fresh, creative, and delicious. We had the wonderful hog fish, lobster duo, scallops and ribs, artichoke small plate, my favorite, the always changing, always terrific vegetable plate. I can't say enough about this excellent restaurant. It's the best food experience in the Tampa Bay area although their sister restaurant, Guppy's runs a close second. Their Eventide, early dinner specials are a total bargain if you are able to be there between 4:30 and 5:30 pm.

    Mystic Fish remains one of the best bargains in the Tampa Bay Area. Food & service consistently superb. Early bird specials among the best values in the area. Our selection for the second time with friends for our monthly dinner. Reservations a must as this neighborhood gem is heavily frequented by locals and with good reason. Recommend both the fish & the lamb.

    Even if you're not a fan of Octopus, you've got to try their appetizer. It's grilled with Arugula, olives and feta cheese. Their soups are great as well. They had a seared Tuna special. It was splendid. Our server was always around and had great suggestions!

    I've been to Mystic Fish several times and have always enjoyed both the food and the dining experience. My wife had Hogfish and I had the Chilean Sea Bass. We were both very happy with our meals. Our waiter Brian was friendly, efficient and extremely familiar with the menu. The desserts were so very reasonably priced that I ordered 2 and quickly gobbled them both down.

    With one other couple, we tried the early dining at one of our favorite restaurants. As always, we were not disappointed. Biggest surprise was the check, which was under $50 with a glass of wine! This is a superb restaurant that ranks among the top 10 best in the Tampa area without the cost of others competing in the arena. Well worth a visit wheter early bird or not.

    As many restaurants as we have tried in the Tampa Bay area, this was a wonderful find in an out of the way location. For those that live here, take the time and drive to Palm Harbor and experience Mystic Fish. You will be glad you did. From the Hogfish to the side dishes to the wine selections which were limited but good you will enjoy this restaurant.

    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.

    There were four of us who arrived at 6:00 on Saturday evening. Seated immediately (had reservations of course). It was very crowded and rather noisy, but not so much you couldn't carry on a conversation. My chicken dish was very, very good, which is unusual in a seafood restaurant. I'm used to the chicken being an afterthought and average at best, but they did a very nice job. Hubby loved his salmon and friends raved about the Hogfish. Wine selection was quite lengthy. Our waitress Ariel was knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and made some good suggestions.
