Snow Birds who 'used to' frequent this place often. Excellent Early Bird Specials. Seems as though they may have closed their doors for good? Their website is shut down and their phone is no longer a working number. Sad. Anyone know? If still open, worth the stop.

What has happened to our favorite seafood restaurant? Will it reopen? Website says it is, but it definitely is not. We went in Sept. and then checked online and it said closed May-Oct.1st. Went (and called) again last week and it still isn't open!

Love The Fishmonger but we went last night with friends and it was closed. Would have been nice if there had been a recording when I called earlier rather than just a busy signal.

Food was average overall, my fried shrimp were good, crab cake was just so so at best. Food was served hot, nothing outstanding about the meal but I can say the service was excellent compared to other restaurants. One thing I di not like was the help just sitting around the bar waiting. Thought that was a little bit too... More

We arrived today at the Pink Shell Resort, and the concierge Rodney recommended The Fish Monger for the freshest seafood around. My family of 4 had an amazing early bird dinner for $15 each along with 2 of the most delicious ahi tuna and fried green tomato appetizers. The portions were plentiful, and we ended the meal by sharing a... More

My wife and i have been to Fish Monger many times; all terrific experiences. This past Friday, we tried their new Seafood Buffet. Having avoided buffets for years, we were skeptical, but Shelly and Thom really came through with an awesome buffet. Clams, Shrimp, Crab-stuffed Snapper, Mussels, Grouper, Calamari and so much more. The buffet was all fresh cooked, the... More

You won't leave here without a huge smile and a full stomach. Food is delicious and priced to fit your pocket book. Great happy hour with 2 for 1 drinks including $2.50 glasses of wine and half-price appetizers. We came for the special party celebrating the end of Stone Crab Season and gobbled down a pound of these prized delicacies.... More
