We enjoyed the scallops and tuna entrees. While I’m not a pasta-lover, I nevertheless ordered the scallops (which come atop pasta), and they were delicious. For small plates, we enjoyed the fritters and the smoked fish dip, with the dip perhaps edging the fritters for what we’d try on a subsequent trip.

Service slowed toward the end of the evening, with no water refills. But as a whole, the experience — including service — was great. We would definitely return!

Literally THE NICEST serve staff ever! I don’t know where they get their people or how they do the training but I can’t think of a single establishment in south Florida that even comes close. When our server last week was awesome I assumed it was a lucky one off (I feel terrible that I don’t remember his name). But came back again this weekend, and another incredibly kind, genuine, chill person (Ryan S). Amazing! The ambiance is great and the food and drinks fresh and tasty but the staff! Man, I really just can’t get over this.

We had the tackle box appetizer that was fun and delicious but our snapper was amazing! My daughter is not a sea foodie and enjoyed her fried chicken.

We were in town on holiday and I really wanted seafood! This place was highly recommended and did not disappoint. We thought it was actually on the water, but it was not. Outdoor dining is streetwise, but still lovely. Very neighborhood restaurant vibe!

Loved this place. Great food. Great cocktails. Great service (which is hard to find since the start of the pandemic). I would go back and spend a wad of money again here.

Not worth the drive. Tough steak. Other food was ok. Waiter was good. Avoid corner table next to staff hallway/hangout. Loud with banter lead by 1 of the managers. Very distracting from attempt at a nice meal on a Saturday night.

I can't wait to return after this visit. We had red snapper served two ways. Each was excellent. The cole slaw, wedge salad, and cocktails were perfect. The ambiance only served to heighten our enjoyment.

In general 3-4 star review. Food was good but a bit overpriced. Service was good although the hostest had a bit of an attitude when I asked not be seated at a table at the foot of the busy stairs. But our waiter was friendly and knowledgable about the drink and food choices. The move here is to sit indoors but since its still covid we were hesitant to do so because all the windows and doors remain closed and tables are very close together. Outdoor seating is ample but a bit no fills and slightly smelly since its near the bay. If you like seafood this place is a good choice. But for those looking for other non-seafood options you should go elsewhere.

Awesome fried chicken but you must force yourself not to eat it for 10-15 or so minutes cause it comes out super piping hot. Yuca fries also rocked. Nice South Beach atmosphere but away from the zoo on Ocean and Collins.

The food was amazing. The service was superb. The only thing I would say is the outdoor dining is on a road so if it’s a special occasion (ours was an anniversary), you may want to sit inside but even saying that, it was wonderful. We will definitely go back!

It’s one of the first spots to pop up when googling “seafood” in south beach Miami. We thought this would be the it spot for seafood, but it wasn’t. First, we really didn’t get much explanation on the Menu or specialties. We asked for the Whole fish, where one can choose the snapper they want. But the market price was $30 per pound…there was just the two of us and the smallest we could get was 2 1/2lber. So no. And it came with no sides. We ended up ordering the surf and turf thinking it would be hamburger AND some lobster. Instead it ended up being a Hamburger with small bits of lobster sauce on top. With a bag of potato chips on the side. We got a Krab wedge, which was just sprinkles of Kani over iceberg lettuce and then white asparagus which was just butter and barely cooked too crispy. We were sorely disappointed as we thought this would’ve been the ultimate seafood experience for a restaurant that’s survived a long time (we are happy about that and the servers seem like great folks, just not happy to be there. There is no view at the restaurant, the outdoor seating is by a busy highway looking road and residential buildings. The indoor was ok but doesn’t really look too much like the pictures on the website. The food was overpriced and not well done. We ended up spending over $110 for a hamburger basically.
Would not recommend it to anyone wanting a true seafood experience in Miami.

Very nice place. Appetizers and entrees very good. Appetizers a little on the small side. Fish very fresh. Octopus and fresh catch of the day were great. Try the watermelon margarita

I aways have a fabulous experience at Stiltsville! This time my parents came to join me for dinner, and they were a little nervous to eat inside, so despite the inclement weather, the fabulous staff agreed to sit us outside at our request. When it started to drizzle we didn’t want to leave and considered getting our meal to go, but the restaurant was fabulous enough to accommodate us in a corner away from other guests and it was just perfect. I had the fried chicken, which was cooked to perfection. Juicy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. The shrimp and grits was also a hit, and my dad licked his platter clean. Mom‘s fish dish was also spectacular. The drinks are always expertly crafted, and service is always on point. Let’s hope all the tourists continue to stay away, as this is truly a neighborhood gem well known by the locals who keep returning.

The food at this place is so tasty. I went there for happy hour (5pm - 7pm) and everything we ordered from the happy hour menu, was very good! It's a great neighborhood hangout to go with friends and enjoy a tasty and fun night out.

Excellent seafood and creative presentations. Relaxed vibe, quality service, not pretentious. A great spot away from the hustle of the main strips. Really enjoyable. Will definitely make this a go-to stop on every Miami visit.

Very enjoyable lunch ! Server was attentive without being annoying . He made excellent recommendations for appetizer and I liked the fact that we were visiting during the Miami restaurant month as we could try a lot of different places for a reasonable price . The smoked tuna was amazing , as were the deviled eggs . Shrimp and Grits were yummy the texture was not similar to what we are used to in Georgia but overall everything was seasoned appropriately and super fresh . Hubs had the tackle box of fresh seafood and his least favorite was the oysters but would never hinder buying this item again . Dessert was excellent key lime pie and honestly a bourbon that we had not tried to date but will be adding to our personal collection. It was Jefferson’s voyage and smooth and sweet . We have never been to Miami but if we return we would surely visit this restaurant again .

We were very disappointed in the Tackle Box - oysters /dry, not impressed sent it back. Tried a salad and it was good. Service was excellent. Not sure that I will try again anytime soon or recommend.
