The Fish House is a fine place to go for fresh gulf seafood. The service was excellent and fast, the menu has something for everyone ( including sushi). My brother told me the oysters were the best he had during our trip ( and he had a lot of them)!

Wonderful date night with my husband. Food was delicious and service by Lyndsey was great! We live out of state but will certainly return if ever back in that area.

Our party sat outside. The view was lovely however railing could use a thorough pressure washing. Our server was awesome! She had a wonderful, playful sense of humor. The bar was way backed up and took 20 minutes to get our cocktails. The crab claw appetizer was good but they have scaled back the portion by at least 30%. The Wedge salad was mostly lettuce, not enough dressing, bacon bits or bleu cheese. The Sushi was absolutely delicious! The Shrimp and Grits were lacking. Grits were not flavorful enough and a tad dry. The shrimp was a huge disappointment. If your going to advertise that it's a house favorite/specialty you should go the extra mile to make sure it is. Our bill with tip was $350. Our waitress saved the whole experience.

Our server, Brad, was exceptional. Not only did he make requested recommendations, he was spot on for what he recommended.

The appetizers were superb - grouper bites and sautéed crab claws. All of our meals were perfect.

Thanks, Fish House for a great experience.

Did not have a good experience. I requested an inside table in our reservation but when we arrived was told that one was not available. They seated us outside in the very back of the deck out next to the outdoor stage. The entire night we were eaten up by mosquitos. They were so bad that even the steady breeze couldn’t keep them away. I’ve eaten here many many times before and always order the house salad with my meal. For some reason they have added pickled beets to the salad. A few of them would have been tolerable but it was covered to the point that even after we removed them the beet taste was still overwhelming. My wife ordered the Mahi which she said was good. I ordered the 7oz filet. It was cooked to temperature correctly but had no seasoning on it. Very bland. I’ve had better steaks at Outback. The entire time still being eaten up by mosquitos. For the price we paid for dinner I would expect a better tasting meal and a better experience. Not sure if I’ll be back.

Food and service were great as always. Did the price go up for the grouper lunch? Flesh size didn't seem substantial enough to justify the $30 price tag. I wouldn't pay that much out of my pocket for a lunch. Glad to say the meal was really, really good, as always.

First timers there and will probably be the last - service was excellent but many places have better food at a better price. Might be a good place for a first date if there is no budget.

The food was cooked to perfection and very flavorful. I had the Red Fish Acadia (Blackened Red Fish, Smoked Gouda Grits with Cajun gravy, Asparagus) The fish was perfectly blackened and moist. My wife had the Crab Stuffed Flounder which was delicious (Moist and tender fish).
