Great Ownership – I've been renting kayak's here since they opened and the owner and his staff have always been incredibly polite and friendly. The food is good and it's great that you can rent kayaks and canoes and then come back for lunch and cold beer! Really like the organization, though, and that's what keeps us coming back.
Cool place – Went kayaking here over the weekend then had lunch. Very good food and very modest prices! Coming back here next weekend for my sister's wedding shower.
Not hard to find – Crazy Fish is easy to find, just look at the map on their website, it's right off Beach. Went here on a date last weekend, and I was quite impressed. The ambiance is pretty cool with the island music and all the "Fishy" decorations. The deck looked nice but we sat inside because it was really hot last Friday night. We hung out and drank Long Island Iced Teas for about an hour before eating. The waitress recommended the Cobia which was on special. We got it grilled, and I don't know what the heck kind of sauce they use but it tasted oooh sooo good! Since we bought our fair share of drinks and were there for quite awhile, the waitress brought us some complimentary key lime pie after dinner. I am going to be back here again quite soon.
No complaints – Stopped here after a day of boating thru the intercoastal. It's a nice location for boaters, its right by the boat launch. Even though I live in FL I am not a fan of seafood believe it or not, and my bf is allergic to shellfish. Low and behold they actually had plenty of non-seafood dishes. I got the chicken pesto with fried Ocra which was really good. My bf got a giant burger, also with the 'dirty' french fries which I tried and were tasty. Meal was cheap even with some margaritas. If you go, make sure you sit on the deck...nice view of the marina, its cool watching the boats.
Don't let the prices fool you – Saw their ad in the Times Union. Checked out the menu online and figured it would be just another corporate seafood restaurant with tiny portions. It was anything but. We got the seafood appetizer and the shrimp and steak both which were very generous portions especially with the sides. Screw places like Joe's Crab Shack, theres no point in overpaying for less than average seafood at an overcrowded and overrated restaurant, Crazy Fish is my new favorite seafood place!
Didn't go here on porpoise – Saw the place while parking to go to Billy's. We were curious as people were hanging out on a deck over the water and it looked like they were having a good time so we rolled on over. Instantly seated (unlike Billy's where you usually have to wait 10-20 mins) by a waitress that I wish could have my babies. She recommended the grouper on special, so all 3 of us ordered. Didn't take long for our food to come, and while we were waiting 2 porpoises swam right out in front of the dock. Someone tossed them a piece of food off their plate and they started making these squeaky noises as if they were thanking him for it, it was was so cool! Anyway, our food came shortly after, and it was superb. I never had fish cooked that way. With sweet teas and a tip the tab came out to less than 65 dollars for the 3 of us. I'll be going back...not a lot of places in Jax where you can sit on the water and eat.
Fast Service – We were waiting for a table at Billy's across the water when we saw people eating on the deck. After waiting 20 minutes we decided to ditch Billy's and go check the place out, mostly out of curiosity. It was a little hard to figure out how to get to but simple once you know how to get there. We were instantly seated, immediately got drinks then appetizers in 10 minutes and dinner in 15 minutes. The food was really good, comparable if not better than Billys. Hushpuppies were fantastic, why do so few restaurants serve them?! The fast service is what really wowed us, because we were so starving. Taking the kids here next weekend, excited to try out some different dishes.
Two thumbs up – Decided to try this place last weekend because the ad said they had kayaking. Me and the bf took em out for a few hours, it was nice because there is a boat launch right by resturant...made it real easy to hop into them. They r nice kayaks too, the open deck kind where you just sit on top. Was some great exercise because it was a little windy. Got dinner on the dock afterwards. We got the grouper with mango chutney sauce it was on special...had a very unique taste to it. Beautiful sunset...not really many places in Jax like this.
Waste of time and Money! – DO NOT waste your time or money at this place (Crazy Fish). Worst food I ever had. They did not greet me at door when I came in or as I left! Did not feel welcomed at all! Menu is high priced, food is not cooked properly, tasted aweful, construction workers doing work on the facility as people were eating lunch! The owner seems to be high on something? He has no idea how to run a buisness and was very rude and arrogant. Stay away from this Crazy fish!!
