For calabash style fried seafood it is pretty good. The food isn’t breaded too heavily or greasy and the shrimp are nice sized. We have had a few items steamed and not bad. Worth a try and definitely one of the most reasonably priced seafood...More

We work looking a celiac friendly seafood restaurant and stumbled across Something Fishy. Friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Gluten free options were very good. They have dedicated fryer for the fries and gluten free seafood. Great family restaurant for everyone.
