We visited on a Friday at lunch. The restaurant was completely booked. Waiter and bus boy were extremely nice, offered ideas, and were fast. Food was delicious and very fresh. Get the grouper!!

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went several times. Their bartenders were all quick & expert. Loved the oyster and every fish dish ordered.

Best seafood meal in a very very long time, maybe the best prepared seafood I’ve ever had . Loved the vibe inside although the tables are a little close together. Our serving team took good care of us and made good recommendations and had great...knowledge of the menu. Loved the lobster bisque! po without being too rich or heavy. I had the crab stuffed grouper. It was perfectly prepared. My wife had the matecumbe dish with yellow-tailed snapper. Awesome, so flaky and fresh. We finished by splitting a piece of key lime pie. A great way to finish off a yummy lunch. Go a little early for lunch to beat the rush, but expect it to fill up before you leave. This place is worth the drive to Key Largo from wherever you are! The Food Network, Southern Living, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives or Mark Clark wouldn’t steer you wrong.More

Great service but very high price for average food . Don’t order the fish tacos, just a fried fish fillet in taco shell.

You and the kids, you must stop at the Fishhouse. What a great place. Get there early as it is crowded. Joey at the bar is just amazing. Any order that you place is going to be just outstanding. The service is excellent. The people...are friendly, and we will go back.More

Rustic and fun restaurant with excellent seafood. Diners, Drive Ins and Dives had been there and we are fans of the show so we ordered what they ordered: the Matecumbe. I got Mahi Mahi with black beans and rice and my husband got Hogfish (as...recommended by a local). Excellent! A fun and funky place with excellent service. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g34344-d12502787-r874776261-The_Fish_House-Key_Largo_Florida_Keys_Florida.html#More

On a busy Sunday at lunch time, everything was perfect - food, service, ambience. Perfectly prepared fish, delicious rice and beans, and wonderful host and servers. We will go back tomorrow for lunch - that's how great it was!

We went based off several verbal recommendations. We were told, "You go for the food not the atmosphere." We called and we're told no reservations, just come on in. We were a bit worried when we pulled up and the lot was full, including a...big tour bus. The bus had just finished and people were loading up. We had a short 10 minute wait to be seated, and our orders were taken. The food arrived within 5 minutes of ordering. We had the Mahi Mahi Metecbe and the Shrimp & Scallops on rice. The food was delicious and the portions were large. Both were good choices.More

Went based on trip advisor reviews and proximity to our hotel. Enjoyable evening and food was delicious. We liked the “Al Bundy” type guy that coordinated guests. Funny dude!!

A good place to stop if you want some no-frills, fresh seafood meal. Its somewhat of a diner casual style, so expect the usual dishes, nothing too innovative or special. Service was efficient. Grilled filled with sides for lunch seem like a good deal -...and they have a rotating list of fishes daily. We lucked in that they had hogfish the day we were there - but it was expensive, more than other places in the Keys that we had it. Still, the fish was super tasty.More

Thank you for the kind review. Just an FYI, we only use fresh, never frozen fish, including Hogfish. We could use frozen and mislabel, but we don't. Quality is our trademark. Thanks again!

We had a good dinner. Service was quick & attentive. The portions were large enough to share. The key lime shrimp and scallops my husband ordered were excellent. My fried shrimp was okay - probably wouldn't order it again. Coconut key lime pie was light...and nice end to the meal. Note - they do not serve any sandwiches at dinner. We had called to double-check & they told us yes but when we arrived menu did not have anything but dinner entrees.More

Hello, and thanks for the review. Yes, we do have a dinner sandwich. It's on the specials page.

There are so many amazing “no frills” seafood joints in The Keys, however Fish House was probably my family’s favorite. Fast service, QUALITY service. Definitely a must try spot in the area. The stone crab legs were delicious and easy to crack. So many appetizers...too, it’s definitely a spot where you would want to try a little bit of everything and share with the people at your table.More

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