About the restaurant
Inspired by the time Levi and his father spent on Christmas Bay in search of speckled trout, flounder and redfish, Goode Co. Fish Camp & Oyster Bar is a tribute to the excitement of the catch, the satisfaction of harvesting and cooking freshly-caught food, and the ritual of coming together to enjoy a homemade, hard-earned meal.

With recognizable elements of other Goode Co. concepts here – signature dishes like seafood Campechana, a curated bar featuring handcrafted cocktails and wines, and a vibrant yet comfortable feel – Fish Camp showcases limited-time seasonal offerings that change throughout the year.

About the restaurant
We’re serving up tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes & cocktails out of our from-scratch-only kitchen and bar. Microwave? Never heard of it. We use slow-cooking methods on our live-wood grill, smoker, and spit because food just tastes better that way.
We believe that local is a place as much as it is a way of eating. Everything on our menu is infused with and inspired by the local ingredients available each season. All of this goodness is served to you as you kick your feet up in our rocking chairs, dine at a fancy table, or relax out on our porch.

Our whole family enjoyed trying every dish that we ordered. Margaritas were spectacular. We have gone during the day when it was quieter atmosphere and at night when the venue was lively and we thoroughly enjoyed it both ways. The food is delicious authentic Mexican cuisine and we loved trying new things we haven’t heard of before. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to enjoy a unique experience.

Great service and food! The cocktails were amazing and the appetizers a hit. I got the scallops and wish they sauce was lighter so I wouldn’t repeat that dish. But I would definitely come back
