As you pass by, you might think that this is just a 'hole in the wall' fast food joint. You would be partly right! It is a hole in the wall that serves the best seafood I have ever eaten (and I have eaten a lot)! They open at 11:00am Central Time and close when the fresh fish is gone.... More

My wife and I can here for some small town, local seafood. Killer Seafood did not disappoint. I had the fresh catch Lion Fish, which was great. It is a cash only establishment, so don't forget to load up on that, but it's well worth it.

Wonderful, old school seafood restaurant. This review has to be 100 yards, so I should mention that it's cash only. Casual, friendly place.

This this a must if you are a seafood lover!! The fried shrimp are excellent! Lightly breaded and tender. This is a small resturant. People are lined up outside when they open.

Based on all the reviews, you would think this place was fabulous. It is just a bunch of overpriced fried fish with rude employees who seem to despise the tourists which make their livelihood possible. Skip it and drive to Port Saint Joe for some real food and appreciative staff.

Great little seafood joint. Everything was delicious from the hushpuppies, to the shrimp, all the way down to the cocktail sauce.

This is the best seafood within 50 miles. Seriously. We were a party of 7 that arrived to a packed house. We placed our orders at the counter and waited for a table. Genius system - your order goes in when you're seated and it's arriving within 10-15 minutes. Everything is FRESH down to the hot sauce on the table.... More

Order at the counter and delicious fish tacos are delivered in minutes. Corona cold. Everybody friendly. Not fine dining, but a fine meal.

Had the grilled mahi fish tacos, very good. Good small shack style atmosphere with island music playing. Friendly staff and laid back.
