I thought it was just me - my kiddos and I ate here when on vacation in Mexico Beach....mind you, my kids are older and wanted something a bit more sophisticated for dinner.
Well, my gumbo had no taste, and my shrimp dinner had so much salt on it I could not eat it. One of my children ordered a blue cheese burger, and when we asked for some mayo, our waitress practically threw it at us.
Anyhoo, I paid the bill-not worth fighting with management when on vacation. But heed my advice - the food is not very good, And the help doesn't help...just stop by for the pretty setting, don't eat there ! Yuck !
Our dinner at School of Fish was one of the most disappointing pricey dinners I have ever had. We ate late evening on a Wednesday night on the back porch. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 kids.
The kids were fed quickly which was a plus. All the adult meals, however, were simply awful.
It started with something as simple as they had run out of lemons for the iced tea. There's a grocery store 5 minutes away, and there were maybe 6 tables being served in the whole place.
I had the filet, which was served overcooked and it tasted as if an entire salt shaker was dumped on it. The asparagus was overcooked and my potatos were room temperature. My wife had the meat trio, which was unedible due to the salt content.
My friends meals were equally bad. They were also lukewarm and over spiced. In summary, very dissapointing for a meal that cost $30 per person.
The final straw was the attack of the horse flys. As soon as the sun went down, the outside patio was literally swarmed with flying insects. We had to run inside to pay our bill. I have to think this is a common occurance, so some warning from the staff would have been nice. Or maybe they ought to lower some netting or put out citronella candles or something.
I would discourage anyone from dining here. Nice scenery and view, so maybe a drink at the bar. Eat at your own risk, and by all means be back in your car before the bugs attack.
The Grit's YA YA rocks! Not to be missed is Chef Shirley’s signature dish, Grits a Ya-Ya, made with smoked Gouda cheese grits smothered with a sauté of applewood-smoked bacon, spinach, shallots, garlic, Portobello mushrooms and cream finished with spiced shrimp and sweet potato hay. The Pecan Crusted grouper is also excellent. Great views of St Joe Bay!
