You can choose to eat at the downstairs restaurant
or at the one upstairs
which has a very nice view of Matanzas Pass.
They have a happy hour on food from 3-6 P.M.
and drink specials until 7 P.M.
My dining companion (DC) and I sampled a few things from the kitchen.
We started off with the smoked fish dip.
Smoked ground Mahi-Mahi was mixed with Capers, bell peppers, onions and Horseradish. This fish dip was unusual as it had little if any dressing such as Mayonnaise in it. I thought it was a nice change from the Status Quo. DC did not really care for it.
We then shared the crunchy almond fish fingers.
Grouper was coated with a mixture of corn flakes and almonds,fried and served with a red pepper-sherry sauce. We did not care for the sauce but the fish was really good, especially with a squeeze of lemon.
The last, and the best thing that was ordered was the Calamari.
It was lightly fried and served with Aioli, sort of a citrus-flavored mayonnaise. Delicious!
This was a very nice happy hour with great food and really good views. I would come back without a second thought.
It's a wrap for another review on Forks.
