We had a wonderful dining experience from the moment we walked into the restaurant. Our waiter Austin made THE BEST "Sailor's Serenade " cocktail and provided us with top notch service. The food was fresh, perfectly cooked and very flavorful. We are looking forward to coming back with our whole family to celebrate my father's 86th birthday in couple of weeks.

We were able to sit outside on the patio. It was a cool night but the heat lamps worked very well. The food was very good - grouper and triple tail. We liked the fact that a salad and sides came with the dinner. Service was good and friendly. We will definitely return.

We had another fantastic evening at Tripletail. Our family has a lot of people with very different tastes (e.g., vegan, no spice, low cal., etc.). The menu there accommodated all our needs. The bartender (Austin) made amazing crafted cocktails and our server (Heidi) was friendly and personable. Will definitely return, especially over the holidays with friends.

The food was great, which was not surprising since the waitress told us that the ownership was same as Drydock and Geckos. Grouper and Sea Bass were done perfectly. The shrimp grilled perfectly. The fisherman’s chowder and lobster bisque were great. Service was friendly and spot on. Waitress was there as needed and was courteous and friendly, rare find today in many places. We will be back.

The food was good, except my friend thought the scallops were not scallops at all. Service was a tad slow and the coffee was the worst I'd ever had.

Nice restaurant. Great value for the dollar but really hard for a non-seafood eater or vegetarian to find options. I chose the Chicken Marsala which was fantastic though. My family went with the salmon sandwich and fried grouper and loved it. Caesar salads were great as well.

Triple tail used to be our favorite and only occasionally available. Now it is on the menu and always available. This time it was fishy and not good. It Did not even resemble prior meals. Have they gone to frozen or substituted other fish? We will not be back.

There is nothing especially interesting about this restaurant. However, everything was well prepared and the quality of the seafood was good. The entrees all came with a salad, a generous portion of vegetables, and choice of starch which is a rare value these days. If You like a good piece of fish, simply prepared, this is a good choice.

The side dishes of vegetables and potatoes were hot and freshly made.

No Tripletail, ran out. No Snapper. Service was good, but limited due to kitchen. Austin did well, in spite of kitchen, so I tipped him nicely.

The snowbirds know what's up! Consistently beyond delicious all the way around. Chef Trae really knocks it out of the park with every meal!

Oysters Rockefeller made to perfection. Lobster roll overflowing. Blackened shrimp tacos are drool worthy....need I say more?! We will definitely be back!

This was our first time here. The device was excellent from start to finish. The food was very good. We had Texas gulf oysters on the half shell. Followed by our entrees. I had blackened scallops and shrimps which were perfectly cooked. All entrees come with a salad, a choice of vegetable and either rice or potato. I had steamed broccoli and red bliss potatoes. My husband had seafood linguine which he loved. Warm bread was served. The best surprise is that they caught on Open Table that it was my birthday ( which I hadn’t mentioned in the reservation or to staff. After dinner our waitress asked us someone was celebrating a birthday! I said yes, do she brought out a dessert of my choice with a candle! Nice touch!! I noticed some great outdoor seating with a waterfall and heaters. You won’t be disappointed.

We have been back to Tripletail a few times now. The service is outstanding with everyone very attentive and upbeat. Food is tremendous and well prepared. Cocktails are awesome. Enjoy the smoked specialty cocktails the best.
Prices are a little high so minimizes the visits but otherwise love the new reataurant.

Our waiter Austin was excellent. He guided us through the menu and continued to be attentive throughout our meal. The calamari is outrageously good and plentiful; it is more than enough for four people. Our entrées were excellent, well prepared and flavorful. Our sides were barely warm.

There is a very good selection of beers, wines and spirits.

We have dined at Tripletail before and we will certainly return.
