If you are looking for what the real Key’s is all about, you must visit the Fish House. The portions are HUGE, the service is friendly, and the fish dishes are the most unique you will find in the Keys. They have a small retail fish store and small bar and a “Key-zee” atmosphere. The Key Lime pie is the BEST you will ever have. I have been going to this restaurant for over 25 years and I have NEVER been disappointed.

The Fish House is located on US 1 in the Upper Keys. I was able to get a table immediately, and I thought the service was friendly. This place is a nice fish sandwich stop that has excellent value and a family friendly setting. The décor is a bit dated, but I guess that is why it has that old Keys feel. For my main entrée, I had the matacumbe prepared mahi mahi, which was great. My wife ordered the fish sandwich, which I thought was tasteless. I would recommend this place but if you are looking for a fish sandwich, go to Craigs.

The Fish House was surprisingly pretty from the outside. I was expecting a more worn building from the internet photo. The interior was cheerful and quirky. The bathroom was small, yet clean and modern. They allowed me to bring my small dog in, who sat on my lap under my coat since it was so cold that night. I was in a draft area by the front door – a little room of my own. Two of the waiters took turns keeping me company. The main room was packed. The bar looked inviting. The décor was so cute and curious and colorful. They had been out of stone crabs all day and just before I arrived, a boat pulled up to the back door with fresh stone crabs! Lucky for me. It is definitely worth the trip. Price was fair. 3 stars.
