The sever we had was terrific! When we were torn between 2 side dishes, he made a recommendation
and was so on target. He was friendly, followed up with us but was not overbearing. Food was delicious. I had no idea what to expect, my friend and I were there for the first time. Definitely will go back. Great value for great food!

We went the first time during Happy Hour: good selection of house wines and beer at half-price. Ended up ordering the mussels in Dijon broth (excellent, with lots of bread to soak up sauce) and Mahi in mango sauce with crab (also excellent). Everything tasted freshly prepared and arrived at the table nice and hot.
Service was great, and there was no issue about splitting the main course.

Excellent service from our server. Great steak tips and grilled shrimp. The Coolas potato is delicious! Also wonderful is the Mac nut encrusted yellow tail snapper with house greens and sugar snap peas. Summer specials going on with half price bottles of wine on different days. Always a favorite place to go

A little disappointed that there are no soup or salad selections on the menu. My wife's entree did come out cold but they resolved it very quickly.

Family vacation dinner for 5 adults & 2 children. Super experience all around! We ordered a variety of seafood dishes: hogfish, salmon, yellowtail snapper, shrimp, all well prepared. Interior decor a plus! Service on the mark. Good children's menu. Slightly pricey but well worth it!

We love this place! I can't say enough good things about the staff, the management, the drink selection, the menu. It's such a great atmosphere and smells delicious, the happy hour and "sunset menu" are an extra treat, if you can get in and get seated that early. And as the wait staff will tell you, you MUST order their 'famous potatoes', they're famous for a reason.

I was surprised to find an outstanding seafood restaurant in a strip mall. The food was very high quality, the potatoes are a must-have, good variety of fish and seafood prepared deliciously, pleasing to the eye and palate. Also, a varied cocktail list and good selection of wines. Last, but certainly not least, exceptional service. Our waiter was very attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and delightful. We will be adding Cool'a to our regular list.

Cool'A Fish Bar is one of our favorite casual restaurants in our area. We went there for our adult son's birthday and had the early bird prices--20 percent off all enrees and 2-for 1 drinks from 5-6 pM. I always order seafood and had the yellowtail snapper, while my husband and son had filet mignon steaks. As always the food was very good. Our waitress was excellent and the atmosphere was fine. We were very pleased with our dining experience. The highlight as always was the Cool-A potato (my favorite potato ever!)

Well crafted food and drinks. The menu leans towards seafood, but there are non seafood choices also.
I ordered one of the specials that was black grouper with a sweet potato crust. It was done perfectly. Others in our party also enjoyed their meals. Cool’a Fish Bar is definitely now one of our regular dining choices.

All good except when I asked to sit elsewhere as the table next to me was big, I was told a person specifically requested the other open table, which I had a hard time believing. Other than that, the experience was a good one.

Thank you so much for your review and we are very happy to hear your experience was enjoyable. At times guests request a certain table or a certain server. When it is possible for us to accommodate these requests, we do our best. I would assume that was the case the evening you joined us. It's rare that it affects another guest but, of course, it happens occasionally.

My wife and I had an appetizer, crab and artichoke dip. Best I've had. Our entrees were recommended by our waiter. We both had fish. It was done perfectly. Will definitely suggest to friends they should go there.
