    The grilled octopus was over seasoned, all we could taste was salt and garlic. I had the shrimp and scallop linguine pasta, the pasta was super dry not enough tomato sauce and the shrimp and scallops were over seasoned.

    Our party of three shared a comfortable booth that kept conversation close to us. Two of us enjoyed the triggerfish special. It was so perfectly lightly breaded and let the tender whitefish shine. We also shared oysters that were fresh and fabulous. The other table selection was a filet cooked medium that looked wonderful. A starch and veggies are included to round out the meals. Waiter Greg kept an eye on us, checking in at the right times, and promptly brought additional requested items. He also guided me to the better Rose, which satisfied my palate for the night. We finished by all trying a different dessert. These are small, tasty, and don't overwhelm. Another delightful evening at this ambient restaurant connecting with younger family members in their twenties.

    We did not have a very Goff server. He took a long tint in taking our order. He described the special grouper dish but the dish he described was different from what was served with no explanation.

    Gone here for 15 years on my anniversary. Always excellent. This time disappointing. Water served in a glass with a bright lipstick stain. First four items we ordered were not available. I spoke to the manager and his response was "these things happen". My entree was served on a chipped plate. Our server was good. I would recommend this to a friend with the warning that it may not be what it used to be.

    Food was great! For some reason we were the only table without a tablecloth which was odd but my real complaint is only that the waiter was too quick picking up our dishes before we were done. With appetizers and drinks before dinner our entire experience only lasted 45 minutes. The waiter grabbed our dishes before we had a chance to say we were not finished.

    Our first time here and won’t be the last. I had the Bison Bone in Steak ((Excellent, cooked to Medium+, flavorful) and my wife had the Ahi Tuna (large portion!). We both had the yellow rice which was good also. Started with Escargot appetizer and bread to dip into all the low cal butter (😉) and that was excellent as well. Server was very attentive, friendly and timely with refilling water, drink orders etc. Highly recommend this place!!

    Could only get a 4:45 or a 7:30 reservation for 4 on a Friday. We decided on the 4:45 and it was great. We were seated in a booth. 3 of us had Hog Fish and it was delicious! The short ribs were good too.

    Our anniversary dinner at Mystic Fish was wonderful! The food was delicious, our server very attentive and informative about specials etc. The atmosphere was lovely-not a single TV in sight. The service was quick and efficient. Highly recommend this restaurant. We went during the Eventide specials and were quite pleased. Great value for the money!
