    Take your Humans to the Fishy Fishy Cafe

    The pet seating area is covered, the food is delicious and the staff are very friendly. I had a fresh bowl of water and my humans had shrimp & grits and fried oysters/shrimp. All three of us give a five bone review and wouldn’t hesitate to return. If it’s windy bring a jacket for your humans so they don’t get chilly.
    Cheers, Bett

    Excellent option for you and your pet

    Great food, service, and very dog friendly. They really welcomed our pup. We will be going back. It can get a little crowded with wait times for seating, but they’ll text you so you can wander around and check things out.

    Great Food and Friendly Service

    Fishy Fishy is a cozy little place right on the water. Fantastic service and even better food. Nice little gift shop as well. They will even bring a water bowl to your table for your dog. We will definitely be back on our next visit.

    Covered Deck Right On The Water

    we really enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere at Fishy Fishy! Jamie, our server was very attentive to both us and our dog. Several restaurant team members stopped by to show our Maizy attention and bring her water.

    Right on water, dog friendly

    They had water bowls right at the hostess station. Covered deck dogs were welcome on. Try the Cajun Mahi Bites, both of us loved it plus our dog Annabelle. Waitress loved waiting on our dogs.

    Perfect for the dog owner

    I normally don’t post reviews. We’ve been to Fishy Fishy two times. Not only is the food great. But they make an extra effort to make sure MR BOJANGLES has water and is comfortable. They pay extra attention to him!!

    Definitely Pet friendly!

    Some places advertise pet friendly but Fishy Fishy really means it. I love that they have a nice outdoor (covered) area dedicated for seating with pets. The waitstaff and even the customers loved on our pups. The food and cold drinks were fab too!! Marlin loved it!!

    Great Place For The Dogs

    Fishy Fishy not only has excellent food but is also very accommodating of dogs. They brought them their own bowl of water when they brought our drinks and made sure to offer seating where they had a comfortable spot to lay.

    Fun and Friendly

    Went for dinner and found establishment to be fun and dog friendly. Food was excellent and the staff was welcoming and friendly. They allowed our Shih Tzu to sit in a chair beside us and different staff members stopped to speak to our dog. Not to mention the view was amazing. Will most definitely return!

    They really do love dogs!

    We enjoyed lunch here on a Saturday in April. The servers were so welcoming of us and our poodle. Many of them came by just to say hello. The food and atmosphere were fantastic. I would recommend this to anyone looking to take their dog with them to lunch or even dinner. And the food is delicious... so even if you don’t have a dog... go for the food and the wonderful service!!

    Great location and pet friendly

    The food was delicious and the staff accommodating. The waiter brought a bowl of water for our dog shortly after arriving and repeatedly checked to be sure he was ok. The location on the water was an added bonus.
