Best Crab Cake - Golden Plate Award Lakeland Ledger
The 4 time award winner for BEST DINNER RESTAURANT AND BEST SEAFOOD RESTAURANT...OUR SEAFOOD IS ALWAYS FRESH.....NEVER FROZEN!
"Often Imitated, NEVER Duplicated"
"Only ONE Crazy Fish"
It all started in 2002, when the Christensens and Manwell familys opened a little Seafood shack in Lake Wales, FL. Initially, we intended to sell shrimp baskets and fish sandwiches.
Because we were in Central Florida and further daunted by the fact that we had taken over the location of an old biker bar; we realized that we might be a bit "crazy" to do it, and thus the name "Crazy Fish!"
Thanks to the wonderful support from local residents, who we soon realized wanted a more complete seafood menu...that biker bar evolved into a full-scale destination restaurant.
Our goal is to keep the atmosphere fun and casual, while always wanting to serve the freshest Florida seafood in Central Florida.
Emeril Lagasse even honored us with a visit and a live feature on his show "Emeril's Florida" which aired January 24th 2016!
We thank commercial fishermen everywhere who bring the fine food to our table and we take pride in knowing, all of our fish is purchased from a licensed source.
I almost don't want to review this place. ;) Seems like a diamond in the rough or a well-kept secret. Don't be fooled from the outside the food is unbelievable!! Large portions, perfectly prepared, and consistently excellent.
This place is nearly always full, and usually on a wait. And for good reason; The food is fresh and tasty. They have fresh oysters, and daily fresh fish options. There's homemade gumbo, and clam chowder. The seafood pastas are an option too. If you're not starving, the fried baskets are the way to go. They Include grouper, shrimp or oysters with fries and slaw. All are good choices... Oh, and the beer is cold here. Throw in good service, and fair prices, what else is there? Enjoy!!
