Good atmosphere with nice salt water fish tanks. Good food though crab cakes are a little too salty. Dessert menu is great.

We try to eat here at least once a month and are never disappointed. Friends from snowy MA were in town and we always take them here and they, too, were happy again with their meals. The service fantastic, food wonderful, drinks great and even though the restaurnt busy the noise level was not intolerable. We cannot wait for our next visit.

This is our “GO TO” restaurant for high quality food and service.

Always feel special here.

When we have visitors from out of town we always take them here.

Good pricing as well.

Long time customers returning with some visiting family from out of town. This is the first time I’ve ordered a New York strip as I am typically here for seafood. The strip was very good but didn’t wow me like their panko crusted hogfish or grouper , paella or bouillabaisse! However it was again s fantastic meal and consistently delicious! Service was very good.......been a customer for over 20 yrs and still leave each meal very satisfied.

Very disappointing...
Oysters were served without any accompaniments (sauces; waitress never asked either).
Salad arrived with dressing (not on side as requested).
Cauliflower was covered with some sort of sauce.
Desserts were not good (out of 3, 2 were terrible!)
Coffees and teas were cold.

Will not return!!

We had the BEST waitress! Hands down! Her name was Megan and she was excellent. We loved out selections; she helped us with some confusion on that, too. And since we were celebrating birthdays we had some of your desserts. They were terrific. We have all been there before, but she made it a really fun evening!

I think we over tipped our waiter. We didn't get a receipt after paying for our meal with a $100. gift card. He said we couldn't tip using a gift card so we left a tip on the table. When we got to the car, I told my husband the math doesn't add up. I don't exactly recall the exact bill but I know it was low $40.00 yet he said we had I think $36.00 left on the gift card. My husband went back in but it was very crowed and couldn't find the waiter. I personally think he took out a tip on our gift card and didn't tell us which is why he didn't give us a receipt.

We dine here often, but this was an 84th birthday party of 8, with people arriving all at different times, and staff was very accommodating, despite our group having presented them a number of challenges. This is first class service, and we appreciate it. Melissa was our server and she was fantastic. The food was excellent, and well timed. I rarely give 5 stars, this was 5 plus. Mystic Fish is one of the best, and most consistent restaurants in the area. Well done, and thank you.

I absolutely love and have yet to be disappointed with the food or drinks or service. The only drawback is that this restaurant is so popular that reservations are required. Will for sure be back when in town.

It's easy to write a review for Mystic Fish, as it is always consistently excellent. Great food and drink, good staff, nice ambiance. My wife and I visit Oldsmar (adjoins Palm Harbor) several times a year and Mystic Fish is one of the three places that we always go back to. We know we can count on them to deliver a great evening -- even when we can't get in for the early bird special. And, after our our dinner experience there last week (with our friends who came in to town and specifically asked that we go to there (they went with us last year)), we know we will be going back again soon.

The food is consistently good . In an effort to maximise profits extra tables are crammed in , some so cloe that you can literally touch the tables on all sides of you. Impossible to have a private conversation. Always ask for a booth!

On Jan.2nd, 2018 our party of 4 had dinner with wine. Our waiter was so bad , his service so bad nobody in our party could finish there dinner. We all walked out.
The service absolutely Sucked.
The manager/owner picked up the bill on this one. Tom was our waiter , "Beware" !
We should have gone to , BoneFish .
This local boy will not go back.
Palm Harbor. P.S. way overrated.
