Gosh, one of the freshest pieces of grouper I have had in a long time! I had the grouper reuben and it was fabulous and the waitress was wonderful. If you want a really nice old Florida seafood experience, then go here, to the Thirsty marlin in Palm harbor.

Saw the sign stating cannot use Groupon on weekends (this was not the case when I purchased it). Purchasers should be notified if guidelines change. This expires Sep. 30 and I live a 35 minute drive from this restaurant, so cannot use it. When I asked about the change, the waitress told me it was on the paper. It was in the fine print, but again I never purchase groupons that have that restriction. We had ordered beverages so she asked if we were going to order. We decided to get an appetizer. When she stopped to get our order, she said to my husband "oh, you're on the phone ". He said that's okay, but she started walking away. I called for her to return. She rudely stated she would be back. I guess she didn't like that we were not ordering more (plus she tried to embarass me when she asked for the groupon so she could prove 'her point'. Bad service, rude waitress, and your bartender's skirt was so short I could see her underwear from the rear. Really? The fish spread (and I use the word fish lightly here as I am not sure it even contained fish) was miniscule with a few sad (read old) carrot and celery sticks. And this was worth $9.99? The worst part is we were seated right next to the ordering POS for the wait staff. Everytime She placed an order she made a point to hum a song from the Wizard of Oz, "If I only had a brain". Yes, she did..... Needless to say, this is one of the worst restaurant experiences my husband and I have had, but the waitresses behavior was inexcusable. She was Server39 McNally. I know her version of what transpired will be different, but know that I RARELY complain about bad service or food. We just don't return. She however should know her behavior will not be tolerated. By the way, we were there on a Sunday around 12:30 or 1:00. There were a total of 6 tables. Maybe you want to rethink your group on rule because it seems you could sure use the business. Sincerely, Kathy

I was really disappointed in the food The owner also owns Mystic Fish which is outstanding We split fried green tomatoes which were just okay Then we split the grouper sandwich The size of the fish for 1500 was disappointing The bun was twice as big as the fish I had 2 groupons and was told I couldn't use them both on the same day Why not?? Sorry to say I'll only go back to use my other one Next time I'll get a burger!! Sorry Thirsty Marlin I left very unimpressed
