This is a cash only establishment, so be prepared! You order att the counter and the bring it to your table when it is ready. The seafood is generally fried BUT the coating is just a lite dusting so you can actually see and taste...More

We have a cottage near Killer and have eaten their food many times. However, since I have a fragile, elderly mother, we have always gotten takeout --until two days ago. I called the restaurant right at five on Father's Day and was told that I...More

On Father's day...At 5:00 Yes, we were already packed. We have people waiting since 4:15 for us to open. Did your daughter actually take notice of exactly how busy we were? 70 seats full, 100 people waiting and a 30+ minute wait just to get...More

Killer Seafood never disappoints. Two nights in a row- we've had Grouper, Lionfish, Scallops, and Cobia. Simply put- fresh, simple preparation, and the right sides to complement. My wife and I were fortunate to sit at the "bar" two nights in a row. Great interaction...More

So the three nights we were there that Killer Seafood was open, we were there EVERY night. Until 5 years ago I thought fish tacos were like "that's not Mexican!" But their group tacos are to die for, honestly. You have your cole slaw on...More

Don't know what "advise" you are speaking of, but I would NEVER recommend Fish House over Killer Seafood. Nice people there, but you won't find fresher and better seafood than Killer's. Just look at the line up of people... More
