We all (including our 6-year-old) enjoyed the fish spread! Grouper bites were tasty. And you can't beat the price for the Friday night special shrimp basket. Most things are fried in a deep fryer, but the batter isn't too thick or hard so the taste...More

The original grouper sandwich was sooo good! Still thinking about it. Also had good beer of the month and it was nice to eat outside since we came straight from the beach. The main deck area was full so we sat in the back. Definitely...More

This family friendly neighborhood bar atmosphere is known for their grouper. During the evening, this place is packed! We stopped for lunch. I had the grouper sandwich which was good, but my daughter's grilled fish taco's were much better! The drinks were good, but it...More

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
