Beth Colvin party of 4 had the almond crusted grouper w/ vegetables and rated the food excellent because, "hot and cooked to perfection and the service was excellent /view of the intercoastal waterway great" and writes on April 29, 2010, "Living near this restaurant we often go there because it is predictably very good. The only item I would not re-order is the calamari because it was not crispy and was just the rings. However the bouillibaise and the almond crusted snapper and all fish dishes are superb. Willi the owner is usually in the kitchen and you can't get a better water view than from here. The seating is very casual and the outside tiki bar adds ambiance. You can sit inside or outside and the service is very friendly and efficient."

Anonymous party of 2 rated the  Red Snapper and 1/2 lb. hamburgers excellent because "From Hamburers to Fish (Red Snapper) the food was excellent." and writes on January 10, 2010: "The restaurant is located in a quaint part of Casey Key - every time we go, we must wait for a swing bridge (which is unusual) to allow us to go to the island. The restaurant indicates it has cold beer. We ordered the beer - they must keep it in the freezer - man was it cold and good on a warm afternoon. The chef is quite talented - he has a menu that includes typical hamburgers, etc., but he also had more complicated meals that involve fish as well as meat entrées.
We have been there three times. Each time was better than the last. The waitress was always friendly, not rushed and provided attention to detail if something was taking longer to cook, filling water glasses, etc.
In addition to the restaurant there is an outdoor bar in a Tiki hut type of area. We have not been there for a drink, but assume that if it is as good as the restaurant, it is great.
It is an unusual restaurant. Certainly worth going and trying out. I am returning to FL at the end of January 2010 and this is on our list of favorite restaurants to go and visit."

Rita Bond party of 3 ordered salads and rated the food fair because, "The salad was okay, but we would have preferred to order some kind of fish." and writes on April 4, 2007, "We heard the food at the Casey Key Fish House was very good so we stopped on March 14, 2007 for lunch. The waitress was very rude to us. Since my husband is on a low sodium diet we ask if they could prepare something without salt on it. The waitress told us that they only had a small grill and they were to busy to fix something without sodium on it. We then ordered a salad. We were sitting near the kitchen and my husband noticed one of the waitresses take a salad out of the refrigerator, take something off of the salad and eat it and then took the salad and gave it to a customer.
We gave our waitress our American Express card to pay the bill. She returned it to us, slamming it down on the table, saying they did not accept it. We gave her our Mastercard. When she returned the bill to us, my husband signed the bill and then asked for our Mastercard. She said she had already given it back to us. She could not find the card. We had to call and cancel the card before we left this restaurant.
The waitress was also rude to the 4 people at the table next to us. She refused to separate the charges for them saying she was too busy to do it. "

norman adams party of 4 ordered almond snapper and rated the food excellent because, "of the recommendation of our server" and writes on November 23, 2004, "This was our first visit, prompted by an advertisement in the Sarasota newspaper. We arrived approx 5.00pm so that we could enjoy the sunset. Our server was JESSICA, and she could not have been more delightful and helpful. Her recommendation for one of the evening specials, Almond Snapper, was so appealing that we all ordered it....great choice, and we all agreed that it ranked with the best snapper dishes any of us had ever eaten. I am sure that some restaurant owners tend to forget sometimes how much their serving staff influence a customer's opinion of their dining experience, and we can give Jessica no higher compliment than to say that while the food was superb and modest in cost; the drinks generous and also reasonably priced; the sunset up to its usual Florida high standards; we shall certainly return for all of the above, but especially for the chance to again be served by Jessica. The restaurant was busy as we left with people waiting for tables, so these comments will likely not make for any extra business for them, given their great location on the water; their great food and prices; and their great service; but we wanted to express our views, as all too often, people are free with their criticisms, but unfortunately less likely to let a restaurant know of all their positives. Many thanks for a great evening!!!!!!!"
