We come often, and really like everything! Usually I get the Hogfish, but this time I had the Filet and the toppings and it was outstanding. I'd give the filet a 10 and the sauce made if at 12~~!! My husband had the cobia and said it was also excellent. I always have the crab martini and he has the tartare.
I love the Boulevardier also!!
Usually we ask for Tom, but he was not there, so we had Tanner. We have had him before also, and he is a great server too. Very attentive and friendly and efficient!

Our waiter was very helpful in us deciding what to get. I cannot have wheat and his suggestions were good. The Cesar salad was very fresh. Both of us had the grouper and it was delicious.

Mystic Fish is our "go-to" restaurant when we have out-of-town guests visiting with us. We've been going here for several years, and can honestly say that we've never had a disappointing meal there. The seafood is always fresh and expertly prepared. Their hogfish is wonderful, and not something commonly seen on restaurant menus. Never tried it? You need to fix that. Mystic Fish serves this delicate, moist white fish panko-crusted and pan-seared on a buerre blanc sauce.

No shortage of creativity in the kitchen, with fresh local seafood dishes and filet mignon cooked to perfection.
Baked oysters with leeks and Pecorino cheese breadcrumbs and crabmeat stuffing in artichokes, and inventive salads as well as a well done Caesar salad, are easy to complement from a good wine and cocktails list.
Great fish creations ( sea bass, grouper) and pasta dishes give you lots of choices. This makes you start plotting when you can come back to try something else on the menu.
We have enjoyed sidewalk dining three times. Reliably delicious food and intelligent helpful servers.

The food is amazing and never disappoints. Lobster tails melt in your mouth, Chilean Sea Bass is amazing and no one does mashed potatoes like they do. From appetizers to desserts this place is the bomb.

The food was excellent! The outdoor seating is next to the parking lot, but we were happy there was any outdoor seating available, as we still are reluctant to eat indoors. They have tried to make it more like a patio and since the weather was perfect, the whole experience was very enjoyable. We were there a few weeks prior for a birthday celebration, outside, and it was just as good! This is our new favorite place in this area.

We were seated promptly at 7:15. Jill came right over and said she would bring the water glasses. The order was taken and bread was brought to the table. Everyone enjoyed their chosen meals, from chicken to fish to paella! We will definitely be returning.

Spontaneous Date Night & although we booked the last spot available, not once did they make us feel rushed. We had tapas, cocktails & shots, both alcoholic & espresso, and everything was delicious! Service was great as always. We have been coming here for over 15 years and we are never disappointed. Thank you for a wonderful night 😊

Food and service were top notch. However, tables were too close together and all seats were filled. There was no social distancing. Employees were all wearing masks. Of course, customers are not wearing a mask while eating and drinking. That’s where space between tables becomes essential during the COVID pandemic. I look forward to returning once the pandemic is under control.

Our waitress was excellent. Even though it was early dining, she did not rush us as it wasn’t terribly busy. Also, my friend lost her bracelet, we called when we got home, and the busboy had turned it in. Thank you!
