The blackened Mahi Mahi dinner was divine and the service was impeccable! My friend had the fish tacos and loved them too. We both would highly recommend.

We have had good luck here before, but recently went in for lunch and were disappointed. They have a good bar, but few draft selections. The wine list is pretty limited. I tried the lobster roll and did not like it.

On a road trip, we needed a spot for lunch and saw a billboard for Wahoo Seafood Grill. The decor might once have been kitschy and clever, but the paint on the wall where I sat was beyond tired. The restroom was clean but also...More

Cedar River is likely as good as any around here. I am no fan of Red Lobster and the Northwest Grill has, in my opinion, really deteriorated. Schooners in St. Augustine and Brown Lantern in Live Oak are both excellent for... More
