We saw the reviews of this place online and decided to try it on our way to Orlando. Terrible traffic getting down here and when I saw counter service I was pretty skeptical but the food was phenomenal!! Everything from hush puppies to fried green tomatoes to shrimp and grits was amazing. Definitely worth the pit stop!!

On a quiet Sunday afternoon we stopped in for some local seafood around 2:00 PM. There were two other tables seated in the comfortable but basic dining room. We ordered Fried Grouper sandwiches with cheese grits for the side. Service was rather quick, and friendly but the grouper was inconsistant. My wifes' piece was thick and nicely cooked, mine was...

This is terrible to say, but we are done with this restaurant. I am so tired of ordering food to pick up and it is never being cooked completely. I have been a customer for a long time, it's sad to say i am done, I would rather get frozen seafood from Publix....😡

We both ordered a combination platter. The grouper was on the tough side as it appeared to have been over broiled.

The wait staff are very friendly and helpful in this strip mall restaurant. You need a local to recommend this site, because the outside is nothing special. Order & pay at the counter, but drinks and food are brought to the table. Service is fast. Tables have rolls of paper towels and plastic silverware is the norm. Seafood is fresh.... More

The food at Wharf Express was GREAT! We stopped in for lunch at the restaurant on Mahan Drive in Tallahassee and were greeted with a welcoming smile at the order counter. As first-timers, we weren’t familiar with the menu -- and we didn’t want to hold up anyone else -- so we got a booth while we looked at the... More

Located near one end of a long strip mall. A very friendly gal greeted us as we entered, she came to the table to take our drink order and brought our meals. We had the shrimp tacos and tilapia lunch special. In comparing the price I paid for a similar meal at our favorite restaurant at home, I felt that... More

Will get takeout more often than we sit and eat but when we do sit it's definitely a treat! Staff is ALWAYS friendly and the food is great. I have NEVER had a bad experience at this Mahan location or the Apalachee and Monroe location. They are all clean and professional. They have the best seafood here and their crab... More

This is for the N. THOMASVILLE ROAD lication because its not on Trip Advisor yet. My wife and I live nearby so we frequently dine there at lunch or dinner. Best tasting seafood in Tallahassee. Others not even in the same league. My fav is the seafood gumbo. I'm a culinary expert on gumbo, crawfish etoufee, and other Cajun delights... More

It may be casual, it may be fast, it may be plastic plates and cutlery but there is nothing casual, fast or plastic about the Wharf's Mediterranean Mahi Mahi Taco Grilled, it is flavorful, "meaty", and fresh greens/pico/feta filled. The accompanying "salad" has a flavorful olive and feta dressing, finger licking good. One of our Friday favorites time and time... More
