My husband watches Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives often and we always tell each other “next time we go to that town…” Well, Key Largo is where we are this week. Our friends joined us and we went for lunch on a Wednesday. We had shrimp...cocktail and smoked fish dip for appetizers. Lunch items were Catch of the day Jerked sandwich, catch of the day BLT wrap, Fish and Chips basket, and Catch of the day Matecumbe. Catch of the day was Mahi-Mahi, or dolphinfish. Everything was good and excellent. Including the service from Moh (Moe?, Mo?) and Joey. We had visited on Saturday and were unwilling to wait the 40 minutes for service (went to Arthur’s Island Kitchen) Wednesday lunch was no waiting. For me, the two best reasons to eat here is that they buy from their local fisher people and they have a small case of fresh locally caught sea food you can buy. This restaurant is very convenient to bicycle or even walk to from John Pennekamp Sate Park. Good beer choices but nothing on tap. Our table had Channel Marker from Islamorada Brewing and a couple of signature cocktails. The Watermelon Martini was lovely and the Blue Ocean very pretty. Pretty good art and other tchotchkes to look at. I will visit again. Maybe we’ll see you there.More

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We especially loved the yellow snapper and baked lobster. The key lime pie was so perfect!!

Had dinner on my first night here. There was no wait but the place was crowded and they pack u in like sardines. Had fish and shrimp. They were pretty tasteless and the shrimp were tough. Ordered drinks and never got them. Servers were friendly...though. Just don’t get what all the hype is about. I’ve had better seafood.More

Fish House was awesome! From the moment you arrive, they even have a bin of bug spray outside so you don’t get bitten while you wait for your table. The atmosphere is like the seafood version of a family-owned Italian restaurant - loud, fun, big...portions, popular with families. I had the key lime margarita and we had mussels, shrimp and scallops. Huge menu selection but with symbols to indicate favorites. We loved it and would definitely go back!More

I’ve been coming to the Keys for 20 years. The Fish House and and Fish House Encore have been favorites for a long time, but haven’t been back to the upper Keys in about 8 years. (Not sure what happened to the Encore). The whole...place feels like family. Servers are gracious and eager to talk you through the extensive menu. Neighboring diners are quick to chime in about what they ordered and implore you to follow their lead. The fish is FRESH!!! I don’t think it gets fresher - heck, there is a fish market in the restaurant! Some favs: tostada, coconut shrimp, any fish matacumbe. The menu has something for everyone. You can’t go wrong.More

Loved the atmosphere and attentive service. I had the snow crab and my husband had the combo platter of broiled seafood. A few pina coladas like we'd never had before!

I was here last year in December and the food was delicious! Coming from the Midwest, it was great to finally have fresh seafood at such a great price. I remember the staff being very friendly as well. It is such a wonderful surprise that...the restaurant owners are good friends with the Siwas--and I can see why, they are good people!More

We always have dinner here when we are in Key Largo. The food is fresh and expertly prepared. The drinks are excellent and priced very fair. The entire staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. Joe at the bar makes you feel at home and is...one of the main reasons my wife and I go there. Top to bottom just a great experience.More

Yes there is outdoor seating but as another person said, the seating is outside (street side) so could be a little noisy.

Hello. It's because we had 2 restaurants located next to each other and closed one after hurricane Irma. We have ran into difficulty getting the correct one deleted. If we had a good contact with TA, we'd have them take... More
