Add in excellent service and you get the equation for a great December lunch! My husband had seafood gumbo and an iceberg lettuce salad. Both were excellent and reasonably priced for portions and quality. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with fries and Cole slaw....More

First of all, our waitress was fabulous. The atmosphere is good; a little noisy, but good. My fried shrimp was very good, the accompanying French fries were just average, and lukewarm. My guest enjoyed her steak, but said that her drink had no flavor. She...More

2 families dined. The shrimp was good but oysters did not taste fresh. Kids butter noodles had a lemon added and did not appeal to the kids. Seemed overpriced for the quality of seafood. Our waitress was very attentive.

We eat here every trip down. Friendly staff, a little pricey but great food. The smoked tuna dip is the best around!

Nice lunch place. Right on the lake, quiet spot. Grouper sandwich was great, but try the Florida Reuben- fantastic.

Description
Welcome to Old Florida Fish House, located in the heart of Seagrove Beach, Florida. First opening its doors in the summer of 2005, the Fish House is a family friendly restaurant that features daily seafood specials prepared by our executive chef, Paul Richards and some of the best sushi available on the Emerald Coast. A casual atmosphere, along with lakefront dining, is sure to provide you and your family with the perfect celebratory experience. Dinner and sushi start at 5 PM and no reservations are required or observed. We would also like to invite you to visit us at the Porch serving lunch daily. The newest addition to the Old Florida Fish House, the Porch is a beautiful full service bar built on a screened in porch right along Eastern Lake. The bar and tables are made from sinker cypress wood and offers guests a gorgeous view in a relaxed setting with plenty of big screen high definition televisions to watch the big game. The Porch is open every day of the week for lunch and dinner, starting at 11am. Old Florida Fish House is considered a hidden gem on 30A and graciously takes the crown as a favorite local's hot spot. With seating in the hundreds, celebrations are encouraged. Proudly featuring local live music and happy hour, Old Florida Fish House is a hidden gem and one you don't want to miss when you come visit South Walton! We look forward to having you soon!
