About The Fishery Restaurant

The Fishery Restaurant is a historic seafood eatery in Placida, Florida. We offer Free Docking, full bar service, we take reservations or call ahead and we love pets! Our deck is animal friendly.

Historic Overview

This area was originally a hunting & camping ground for Native Americans. Legend says Jose Gaspar sailed these waters, buried his brother and hid his treasure here. Many, including the Smithsonian, have looked here for the treasure.
Placida became a hunting & fishing camp in the early 1900's. The fishing community and Gasparilla Fishery moved to Placida in the mid-1940's. The building was constructed of blocks made from Gasparilla Island beach sand and moved on small fishing boats to this location. The Fishery operated its own ice plant and shipped over 10 million pounds of fish yearly until the commercial fishing net ban. The Albritton Family built The Fishery Restaurant in 1988, continuing a long tradition of providing fresh seafood to the community.
We hope you join us in keeping the tradition alive!

Good food, good wine,
good friends, and good times

Our Testimonials

  • “Great fresh seafood and service”. Always one of our favorite views and with the new chef the food is fantastic. Had the low tide linguini with the perfectly fixed scallops. Service staff was busy but still smiling and pleasant

  • “A Favorite For More Than A Decade”. Made a point to stop in today after returning to the area for our second winter season since moving away eleven years ago. We used to come here by boat and tie up to their easy access dock and always enjoyed the food and laid back atmosphere. Nothing seems to have changed... Still laid back and clean with friendly servers...

  • “Beautiful setting”. We have been here a few times. Cozy restaurant on the water. You can eat indoors or out on their deck. Mostly a fish variety on their menu. They also have a full bar.
