We loved our meal.
Only complaint... our salads were served right after our drinks arrived. I prefer a leisurely cocktail and then my dinner.
Next time I will mention my preference to the waiter.

Mystic Fish is our go to Date Night place tp eat. We love the quality of the food and service. Living in Tampa means we are 19 miles from the restaurant, but still make the trip whenever we can.

Boring night. Rushed and food was nothing special. Many places in the area that have better food more atmosphere!

Our food was great. Lobster tails were a real winner and the Caesar salads were chilled and attractively presented. Our server Tanya was lovely and excellent.
We look forward to returning!

This is possibly the most consistent restaurant in terms of quality service and environment in Palm Harbor Florida over the past 18 years. Although located in a plaza, once through the door the ambience is most pleasant. Food is of superior quality. Waitstaff well trained attentive and helpful. The menu has remained up to date and in fact innovative over these many years. This is our consistent go to restaurant for wonderful dining. Incidentally, the prices are more than fair.

We went to Mystic Fish to celebrate my wife's birthday. We have been several times before and as always, we were treated to extraordinary food, atmosphere and service. My wife had the Kona seared scallops and I had the panko breaded hogfish and both were outstanding!

I had an amazing dinner with my wife. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left everything was perfect. The food is delicious and that crab martini is the highlight of the meal. The drinks we ordered were perfectly made and the service is amazing. Can’t wait til I get a chance to come back.

Since it is supposed to be a seafood focused restaurant one would hope they know he to prepare fish
I was wrong. Over cooked and not edible
Manager responded that’s too bad
I’ll not return

Dining here is always a pleasure. Our server was extremely engaging and professional. The oysters were perfect and the hogfish snapper was excellent as usual. I had a terrific verbena whiskey sour. This is by far our favorite restaurant in the area.
