Place was empty. Ordered "top shelf" margarita. Not good. Thought about leaving but decided to share fish taco. Fish piece looked like a hotdog and the sauce probably came from a bottle.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your business. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations as we should have. Our fish tacos are very popular. Please keep in mind that the fish is cut specifically to fit into the taco shell. All of our sauces are made fresh in our kitchen.... More

Excellent service , and enjoyed discussions with employees as very few customers at that time. Prices on Sushi, gumbo, not discounted at Happy hour, or... More

The menu was limited due to being a venue at the 30a Songwriters Festival. I chose the most expensive item on the limited menu, the Grouper with crab and shrimp in a lemon butter sauce, accompanied by mashed potatoes and green beans. The main course was delicious! I ate every morsel. Potatoes were good, green beans just a little too... More

My wife and I joined three other couples at the Old Florida Fish House & Bar on New Year's Eve. We were able to get a table in the sushi bar before things got too busy. The meal was AWESOME. The sushi was exceptional; fresh and a great variety. If it wasn't on the menu the team was happy to... More

We stopped in for a late lunch on a grey, chilly New Year's Eve afternoon. Great service, great food. Super fun playing cornhole and ping pong with the family, too!!

I ate dinner at this tucked away restaurant. Good selection on the menu. We had a table for 9 reserved at 5:30pm. The table was ready at the time and the service was great. The had a live band. Everyone enjoyed all of their meal.

The location of this establishment is pretty neat since it's on the water and you walk down a covered type of boardwalk to access it. We went the day after Christmas and it was pretty dead. We were quickly seated and our orders were taken. There was a delay with our gumbo, but it wasn't a horrific one. The gumbo... More

Welcome to Old Florida Fish House, located in the heart of Seagrove Beach, Florida. First opening its doors in the summer of 2005, the Fish House is a family friendly restaurant that features daily seafood specials prepared by our executive chef, Thomas Stukenborg and some of the best sushi available on the Emerald Coast. A casual atmosphere, along with lakefront dining, is sure to provide you and your family with the perfect celebratory experience. Dinner and sushi start at 5 PM and no reservations are required or observed. We would also like to invite you to visit us at the Porch serving lunch daily. The newest addition to the Old Florida Fish House, the Porch is a beautiful full service bar built on a screened in porch right along Eastern Lake. The bar and tables are made from sinker cypress wood and offers guests a gorgeous view in a relaxed setting with plenty of big screen hi definition televisions to watch the big game. The Porch is open every day of the week for lunch and dinner, starting at 11am. Old Florida Fish House is considered a hidden gem on 30A and graciously takes the crown as a favorite local's hot spot. With seating in the hundreds, celebrations are encouraged. Proudly featuring local live music and happy hour, Old Florida Fish House is a hidden gem and one you don't want to miss when you come visit South Walton! We look forward to having you soon!
