Quality of food and service is going downhill here. This place use to be awesome, not anymore. The Snappers are small and the prices are high. Let's face it, the view of the river is a nice perk, the restaurant decor is aging. Waiters are...More

It is the quintessential Miami experience— great seafood in a casual waterfront spot. There is no pretentious vibe at this restaurant run by father-son team Esteban Jr. and Luis Garcia. The top class, fresh seafood speaks for itself. On this night, the stone crabs were...More

I expected more from this place because of some reviews I read, but was disappointed. I ordered a grouper chowder ($7) but felt a strong taste of fish, didn’t like it. The ceviche ($10) felt like it spent too much time in the lime juice,...More

Visit Garcia's with family while enjoying the nearby park on the Miami River. The popular restaurant is right at riverside and there is both indoor and outdoor covered seating on two levels, some right at waterside. Atmosphere is casual, picnic table type seating outside. Broad...More

It would not be my choice for a large party. Generally you are sitting outside with a large permanent cover. Tables would work because they are picnic style wooden benches seating about 6 people each. Seagulls are not a... More
