After a fabulous Segway experience around Port Canaveral, we took our tour guides advice and tried Fishlips Waterfront Bar and Grill. Of course, for those who don’t live near the ocean, who can pass up the chance at seafood along the beach?
We sat ourselves upstairs in the more casual area. I wanted to sit outside but unfortunately, the only empty table were next to people smoking and I can’t take the smell of cigarette smoke, especially while eating.
Instead, we sat inside near the entertainment area. We had a great view of the ocean. The cruise ships had left right before we got there so the restaurant wasn’t too busy with tourists. Our waiter acknowledged us quickly.
|Okay, they weren’t happy about being in a photo while eating.|
I ordered the Mahi Mahi sandwich, Mike ordered the fish tacos and Caden had fish and chips. Our food arrived in a timely manner and was the right temperature upon arrival. I like white fish, not too fishy tasting and the Mahi Mahi was just the way I like it. I ordered sweet potato fries instead of the regular and they were so good I ate almost every one of them. The fish tacos were also good, though not outstanding. Caden liked his fish and chips and we all liked the casual environment since we had just finished playing on the beach after our Segway tour and weren’t dressed for a nicer restaurant. The food was fairly priced for what we received and expected at this type of restaurant.
In the end, we had to get our server’s attention to get our bill but we weren’t in a big hurry so it didn’t bother us. He kept our water cups refilled which mattered more.
We did get to experience the entertainment. The singing wasn’t bad but I have to admit, I was fine without the entertainment but those around us seemed to be enjoying it.
If I were in the area, I would go back again but wouldn’t go out of my way to find the restaurant.
