The Wildfin was well worth a stop for a meal. We were there for dinner. We had chowder and the Mixed Seafood Grill. EVERYTHING was superb.

We really enjoyed our time at WildFin! We were promptly greeted and seated by a super friendly hostess, and Amber as our server was very professional and so sweet! My hubby had the blue cheese salad and I had the harvest salad. Both were delicious! BTW my mojito (classic style) was one of the best I’ve ever had! I had a fish street taco and my hubby had crab stuffed cod. My taco arrived on a teeny tiny plate but when I asked they cheerfully brought me a bigger dish. My hubby said with his entree it was a little hard to tell what was cod and what was potatoes since it was all a similar Color, but it was still very good. (Maybe serve it on a red garnet yam cake for color contrast?!) It was dark when we arrived so we missed what I’m sure was a great view, but we really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the good food! You will want to include a movie or shopping while you’re there as this restaurant is in a nicely developed are with lots of other fun things to do!

Stepped in to try the seafood at the wildfin right on the water. The first dish was soup including the French onion and the seafood chowder. The French onion soup was topped with onion rings which needed a little salt but with the salty base to the soup was just fine. The seafood chowder included a healthy portion of white fish, salmon and shellfish with a creamy base which was flavorful and needed no additional seasoning.
The main course was the prawn and scallop scampi was wonderfully seasoned with red pepper flakes and garlic in a light cream sauce. It had a healthy portion of seafood plus cherry tomatoes and asparagus that went well together. The only thing missing was some bread or pasta to make sure that none of the sauce went to waste; it was definitely the best part of the meal. This restaurant has a nice waterfront view of the bay and is definitely worth a visit.

We were actually trying to eat next door at the Daily Catch but they ended up being closed so we decided to check out this place since we were right there. The plan for the evening was to have a pretty inexpensive meal but this place was not according to plan. When we saw the menu we were a bit discouraged and even contemplated leaving. Took another look and decided to order fish tacos, the Mac n’ cheese, succotash, and split the garlic prawns appetizer. We were not disappointed. The beginning of the meal (the prawns) blew us out of the water. It was so delicious and flavorful (we even contemplated ordering another one). We finished every bite and every drop of sauce was sopped up with the bread sliced with the prawns. When the tacos and side items came out we were very pleased. The Mac n’ cheese came in a mini skillet and was a great portion size for two women to split. The succotash was mouthwatering. I’ve never had one that packed so much into every bite and still kept it fresh. To say the fish tacos were stuffed would be an understatement. They were filled to the brim and the sauce on top brought it all together. We were so happy our first choice ended up being closed as we were able to stumble upon this gem. Still only spent about $40 for the best meal of our trip. Beautiful ambiance inside and outdoor seating overlooking the sound and narrows. Definitely give this place a try.

We went today for lunch and choose to purchase our meal at the walk up fish bar. This bar has a limited menu, but had the key items we wanted. We shared a bowl of seafood chowder and a 4 piece cod 'n chips basket. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine. We drank water.
The food was pretty good. The chowder had nice chunks of salmon in it. We shared one basket and there were plenty of fries and there was plenty of fish for the two of us.
Our cost was $16.38. That was an excellent value.
