We keep returning to Madfish Grill because we like fish and they do an excellent job. The menu is diverse, so seafood is not your only choice. On the lunch menu they have a selection of bowls to choose from. I have had the POKE...More

My wife and I aren’t fond in seafood, but Madfish Grill certainly revitalized our interest. There variety of food was impressive and service was very delightful. We were very glad we stopped by.

This restaurant is wedged in between a shopping center and Home Depot, but it is right off the Bee Ridge Rd exit on I-75. You wouldn't expect to see a seafood place so far inland, but don't be fooled, the entrees are wonderful, with fresh...More

One of the best burgers we've had in Sarasota. Ignore those 2 star reviews. Maybe Madfish was having an off day because we could not complain about anything. Donna our server was very attentive and the burgers, homemade chips & coleslaw were excellent. I ordered...More

This review does not reflect food quality or servers as those elements are fine. Just don't try to reserve the private dining room called the "Vault" as that is when the reservation system is inept. Five times we have either been bumped or other parties...More

I've dined here several times over the past few years and again today. This restaurant never disappoints. This is my favorite "go-to" place because it's always great. You cannot go wrong with the Blackened Mahi Tacos.

Great tempura battered fish used for their fish fry and fish sandwiches. Their quiche is a good choice here for brunch or lunch. New places come and go. There's a reason this place is still here and has a loyal following.
