Fish House Vera Cruz has good food but the restaurant itself needs an update. Fish is fresh and generous portions are the norm. The cole slaw is excellent. The bar features a see-through tank in which fish can swim under your glass! The restaurant itself...More

Fish House Vera Cruz is my go-to place for business or personal dining when I'm looking for a fresh, delicious meal. I have never had a guest say anything but great things about the meals ordered.

I love fish house Veracruz. There cheesy mashed potatoes are awesome. I think that's what you would call them. I always get the scallops and shrimp on a skewer. Their bread is to die for! And the atmosphere with all the fish tanks are fabulous

I love their food but they keep changing their prices and they get more expensive each time. They also used to give you a salad with your meal now you have to pay extra. We still go but not as often.
