My husband and I went with two of our children. One got the hot dog, and three of us shared the steamer pot - 2 lbs of crab legs and 1 lb of boiled shrimp. It was plenty of food, and really not priced bad for this type of meal. Definitely looks like a local or hole-in-the-wall type place, and... More

This used to be a fairly good fish place for a quick takeout or eat in. Fresh fish sandwiches, platters, etc. or takehome. Not any more. limited variety, mostly lower species -- mullet, cat, spot, etc, not the better varieties -- salmon, mackerel, mussels, clams, etc. Just what budget fish eaters would like. And the value has declined greatly, so... More

We had just arrived in Americus and were looking for a quick Friday night meal. The Fish House was the closest to the hotel, so we decided to give it a try. The fish tacos were OK, but not great. The Fish House is definitely fishy - lots of fried fish, french fries, but also very noisy, and greasy. The... More

I read the reviews on this place and occasionally I will eat at local places just to have a different experience. The reviews already warned that the place was no looker but the food was good. I beg to differ. I called in my order and went to pick it up. Upon entering I followed suit with other cars parked... More

I didn't stay and eat. Didn't look clean. I ordered an iced tea. It tasted exactly like water. It has outdoor seating but the tables looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a while. No wifi.

First time eating here. Late lunch on a Saturday. Not too busy, but definitely not dead. Had the catfish nuggets, slaw and okra. It was very good. The only complaint I have is it took a long time to get our food. I can't imagine a busy weekend night. Definitely will come back. I want to try the frog legs... More

On a Sunday night, the hotel restaurant was not open so the lady at the front desk suggested The Fish House. It's not much to look at but oh my goodness, their food is wonderful. I loved their catfish. The side dishes were good and the price was amazing. If you love real southern cooking and fish, you'll love this... More

OPEN SUNDAY. We called 13 places to find a restaurant open.... If you're upset by cinder blocks and missing base board, then drive on; but, you'll be missing out on some great food and service! Located in scenic downtown Americas, Georgia, just ONE BLOCK OFF HWY 280 on N Jackson St; this fish joint sports no shortage of courtesy and... More
