Reviews for Star Fish Company
No dock space., 2016-08-06
Captain: , Longboat Key, FL (82)

There is room for one boat up to 26 ft at the end of the floating dock. Get there by 11.30 AM if you hope to get the space. Dock space on the east and west sides of the floating dock is reserved for two tour boats that come and go about every hour.

Plan on waiting in line for you food. However SO WORTH it!!!!!! Be sure to bring your camera as it is a true pleasure to watch the happenings while you enjoy your beer and wait for your fresh food.

If you like to pay cash, eat the freshest seafood, drink the coldest beer, eat out of a box, sit at picnic tables on a floating dock, met interesting people, and learn some great local history (Think Perfect Storm) then this place is for you

Excellent Lunch Spot, 2011-02-17
Captain: , Fayetteville, Arkansas (651)

Be prepared to wait a while for your food.... however the wait is well worth it. Locally prepared fresh seafood served in a plain white box is the fare. Dining al fresco around fishing boats was awesome.

Starfish Restaurant is one of the best in Florida., 2011-01-18
Captain: , Whitfield Estates, Sarasota, FL (928)

During peak hours the line may be 30 minutes long and we have waited, on rare occasions, up to two hours, but it is worth it. You can go up the street two blocks and order similar food with no line and the food comes out immediately.
The fish market sells fresh fish at below chain store prices.
