This restaurant is a favorite of locals. Located on the Miami River in a quiet part of town, this restaurant is quite nondescript from the outside. Valet parking costs $5 and is necessary in this tiny parking lot. Downstairs at entry level, you will pass the kitchen. Go up a flight of stairs and you enter the restaurant itself. The... More

We met a friend there for drinks and we had planned on dinner, but after a beer bottle came out with a dead roach on the side, well ....... Also, the "greeter" was very rude ("you should read the sign") .... The food was over-priced and the placed smelled of dead fish.

Garcia's has always been my favorite seafood restaurant. It is operated by a family and they are into everything they do. The menu is at fair price and the service is always impeccable. I would return many times...It was that good!!!!!

This place is an institution not to be missed. Although the place looks a bit rustic, the fish and the conch are excellent and the local atmosphere is fabulous. Cuban restaurant not to be missed, where you ça go by car or by boat.

Absolutely outstanding! I'm a big seafood lover, and lunch at the Garcia Seafood Grille made my day. Nice table by the river, great views of the passing by yachts and small coasters. Nice salad for starters and I was absolutely taken aback by the Stone Crabs! Flushed by two Mohito's. 10 out of 10! Be aware that the great food... More

Let's start with a plate of fresh cut limes, cause you'll need them to go with hot sauce on your Grouper Fish Spread and saltines that starts every meal here. And really who needs more? The server was great at suggesting the proper use of condiments on this and my terrific conch fritters. But really, we drove an hour from... More

This restaurant was an old favorite, then appeared to go into a period of decline. However our visit last Saturday assured me that this restaurant is on the rebound. Great location on the Miami River for casual dining. Friendly wait staff who were very attentive to our needs. And the fish was cooked to perfection!

Visited this place for a late lunch with a group of seven after having searched the web for a nice seafood restaurant. Seafood was below average and the ambiance of the place tatty and dirty looking, especially the toilets. I personally judge a place on the cleanliness of the restrooms!!! I will not be going there again for sure! Oh... More
