Alex was wonderful, the food and cocktails were outstanding (though a bit more variety in the cocktail menu would’ve been nice to see), and the staff managed to get us in and out in nearly the required 90 minutes (sorry, we dawdled a bit over coffee!) without rushing us.

Two minor details that bugged me: no replacements for used silverware between courses (eg: the knives used to butter our bread were removed from our plates and placed on the table instead of being taken with the dirty dishes), and the entree plates were removed a little bit too efficiently; I’d barely set down my utensils before they were whisked away!

Oysters are worth it. Main courses are not! Disappointing for the price.

This was our first time dining here. I cannot comment on the inside of the restaurant because we ate outside on the sidewalk. Although the menu was pretty limited, our food was delicious. I will definitely be back

Service was slow if you want us out in one and half hours. Understand that COVID 19 might have something to do with that.

The wait staff was outstanding. We were celebrating a birthday and they were very attentive. The food was delicious, as usual. They were very accommodating to the person in our party with a nut allergy. There were two other people celebrating birthdays that evening so clearly this is a great place for a celebration

Came to town for a birthday celebration. The ambiance inside was lovely. The waitress gave us a fantastic recommendation on fresh oysters. The crab cakes rivals that found in Tampa. Drinks were also fantastic. In all GT fish is a definite return in my list

A pleasant, unpretentious atmosphere, very comfortable noise level, excellent staff and the food was fabulous. I had the Alaskan halibut with zucchini, black garlic and cauliflower couscous and the fish was as fresh and melt-in-your-mouth as could be, the flavors were wonderful and the meal was complemented by some very tasty bread.

This place is incredible, and a great scene for business dinners/lunches or a date. The food is awesome, and definitely one of the best seafood places in town. We had the octopus, crab legs, fried oyster slider and lots of Oysters. They had 6 different types of Oysters, which rotate, and all were incredible. I would highly recommend GT Fish and Oyster!

Had a great meal for my bfs bday dinner at GT! The food was amazing and we were very impressed with the service. There’s nothing better than when a busy restaurant perfectly times the delivery of each course and check-in points.

The oysters this time were extraordinary fresh. The outdoor seating was spacious and private. the only issue, was the size of the $18 cocktail left a little more to be desired.

From the minute we walked in, the service was impeccable. We had a reservation for two people at the bar. We came about 10 or 15 minutes early asked the hostesses we could get a table, and they said yes the handoff to the server to the cocktails to the oysters, the Alaskan King crab legs, the octopus everything was perfect tasted fantastic
