Dining out Gulf Coast: Killer Seafood, Mexico Beach, FL

We're enjoying a few day's from the grind at home to enjoy the Gulf Coast.  Specifically, Mexico Beach, Florida. Arriving today a little before check in at the motel allowed us to enjoy our first seafood meal of the trip. We chose Killer Seafood. 

Some may say this is a "hole in the wall" dining establishment, and by most accounts, it probably is, but isn't that where some of the best food you've ever had came from? 

It's located directly across U.S. Highway 98 from the Gulf, so we chose to sit outside at the picnic area and enjoy the ocean breeze.

Service was prompt even with a full house inside the restaurant. 

I noticed fish tacos on the menu: a grilled tuna or lightly breaded "fish of the day" which luckily for me was grouper. For $11.99 the order consists of two tacos (your choice of corn or flour tortillas) filled with lightly breaded grouper, topped with lettuce, tomato, cheese and their Killer Taco Sauce. Served with a side of Killer Koleslaw. Even though it's difficult to find the grouper underneath the toppings, it was a nice sized portion and, as the menu stated, lightly breaded. The slaw was a little dry for my taste, but that is a personal preference.

Sweet Harold chose the lightly breaded fried shrimp basket with fries and hushpuppies $12.99. As we always do, we shared portions so we could get a double sampling of goodness. The shrimp were large and perfectly fried with no greasy aftertaste. The fries were ordinary, nothing exceptional, fries. Hushpuppies were a little dense for my taste, but again, that's a personal preference. As a side order or as an appetizer, there are four to an order.

Bottom line, would we go there again? Definitely. I'd just choose a different side dish to try next time.


  1. Lolly, what kind of breading on the shrimp.. I like the looks of it; light. Not too thick.

  2. It WAS very light. Almost like a corn flour texture. Nicely seasoned. You could really taste the shrimp instead of a heavy breading.
