My rule of thumb is: if it wasn't swimming in the ocean or gulf yesterday or the day before, don't put it on my plate. This place did not disappoint. Rolls were innovative. Sashimi and nigiri were awesome. Fish entrees were super fresh. I'm going back.

Wife was CRAVING a burger. Been to Twisted Tuna before for lunch and my wife had the Mega Margarita which was huge and just the right amount of tequila. Since we have a house right in Rocky Point thought we try again and see how there burgers measure. Let me tell you, not only did she LOVE it but I thought it was great. Finally find a place that not only knows how to season a burger but can also cook a proper medium (great pink in the middle) just past medium rare. Great job. Their Italian garlic wings are also totally on point and not to mention their fries are GREAT. Definitely coming back.
Our server Josie was sweet and attentive, checking on us to make sure we weren't too warm on one of the coolest evenings in weeks . She's definitely a keeper.
As stated earlier, we've been here multiple times and this is the first a Manager came to see how our evening was going... thank you Maria!!

The hostess was a bit off-putting. Too busy on the phone to acknowledge the three parties waiting in front of her.

With that inauspicious beginning, we had a shrimp tempura sushi as a shared appetizer. It was acceptable.

Tropical grouper tacos with blackened grouper was amazing.

I tried the crabby steamer platter and the mahi francese and both were good.

Our Vegan party member really enjoyed her vegetable plank (ordered without the smoked Gouda).

But for a repeat visit I would stick with one of the fish taco selections because those are on point!!

The only downside to the evening was a "cackler" who got louder and more obnoxious the more she drank.

As she left, she shoved a waitress out of the way.

I would recommend some type of "baffling" on the ceiling to reduce the ambient noise level.

Bobby was our waiter and he was fantastic. Conscientious but not intrusive.

Dessert? "A Slice of Summer" and salted caramel cheesecake.

I would whole-heartedly recommend the salted caramel cheesecake. The "slice of summer" was good but...

Twisted Tuna - try it, ask for Bobby, have the tacos, and finish with salted caramel cheesecake.

Usually love the place but had the worst experience ever tonight. Set up our party of 16 at the wrong table, male manager was rude, hostess ruined the "surprise" party for my father, hair in one of the dishes, had us sitting the hottest part of the restaurant, wait staff constantly running in to our party (mostly the 6 year old autistic girl tired of waiting for the food), etc. Was a total disappointment!
