To learn more, visit the website for Fish Shack in Lighthouse Point. To each own when it comes to the whole fried/blackened/grilled dilemma, but we do have to say the blackened grouper sandwiches at Big Ray's are legendary.
If it weren't for these sandwiches, homemade onion rings could easily be the star of the show. For more information, visit the website for Big Ray's Fish Camp in Tampa.
Check out Big Water Fish Market's website to learn more. Obviously, the fish and chips is the most popular choice, but you can't go wrong adding a bun.
To learn more, visit the website for Gulf Coast Grouper & Chips in Naples, Florida. It's a large part of why this tiny restaurant has made a big splash for 35 years.
Fried grouper might be the classic choice, but do yourself a favor and try the Cajun grilled version, too. It can be a challenge to dine out when you have kids, but Peg Leg's is super family friendly, with lots to see and do while you wait.
To learn more, visit the website for Peg Leg Pete's in Pensacola Beach. The fresh, flaky grouper here is only matched by the view of Sarasota Bay.

Plastic forks, knives and spoons are the eating utensils. This time the toasted sandwich bun with cold slaw, tomato slice, red onion and French fries, had a Pasco battered nice of fried grouper as large as my hand and at least 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
We saw dinner plates of red snapper and grouper which looked great. Lobster Reuben is there specialty with over 200,00 and counting sandwiches.
It's well worth driving any distance for this waterfront hidden restaurant. Going through Marathon key around mile marker 42 on the left side coming down from Miami, turn right just past the restaurant on highway called “The Stuffed Pig” and go to end of the road, it's on the right side of the road.
It is rude to come into a restaurant with your own drinks and side dishes, plates and silverware. When asked to leave you just decide to tailgate in the parking lot.
You place your order at the counter and then sit at one of the picnic tables which were shaded and not at all over-crowded when we were there. The seafood was delicious, and we then stayed to watch a spectacular sunset.
Every year we come back because the crab is fresh and affordable. We bought 2 pounds of stone crab and went to the outside tables to eat it.
She did not explain who she was and what she was doing and I found it odd and unsettling that someone would just snap pictures of my kids. We continued with our meal and 5 minutes later the same lady came up to us and said that we could not sit there with”retail” bought stone crab.
On the way out I asked the lady to delete the pictures of my kids off her phone. I told her that I was uncomfortable with strangers taking pictures of my children without my permission.
My kids and husband were packing up the car, and I was checking my emails on my phone when this lady, her name was Jeanette, approached me again and told me that I was trespassing and told me to leave, or she would call the sheriff's department. She repeated her sch peel about eating “retail” stone crab at their picnic benches.
She kept arguing (even though we were already at our car in the parking lot ready to leave). Basically, she just kicked us out even though we just spent $45 at their store on stone crab and fries.
My husband, my 3 kids and I felt insulted, offended and abused. Claim your listing for free to respond to reviews, update your profile and much more.
