As self-proclaimed ‘foodies’, Jeremy & I love to find great eats at all sorts of places while we’re traveling or–even better–right here in our home town of Port St Lucie. One of our absolute favorite discoveries was the Tin Fish restaurant. We tried it out when they opened its first location on Port St Lucie Boulevard and immediately fell in love. The freshness and quality of ingredients is something you just don’t find at a place where you order at the counter and sit down. We were excited to have a location even closer to where we live when Tin Fish Tradition opened its doors and became ‘our location’.
We’ve had a few different menu items throughout our visits to Tin Fish but we tend to stick to our favorites: Clam chowder, Mahi Taco, Chicken Tenders and the Famous Fish Sandwich. The first thing you’ll notice about the food is that everything is served piping hot every time–you don’t realize how few restaurants do this until you taste freshly made hot food done right. The waffle fries come straight from the fryer to the platter to your table within minutes and nothing is better than a hot, crispy, well-seasoned waffle fry!
The staple item on the menu at Tin Fish is their famous fish sandwich–and for good reason. It is a tasty battered fried filet of fresh cod (and I actually mean FRESH and not fishy in the least) on a toasty baguette with a delicious drizzle of homemade hot sauce and tartar sauce served with crispy seasoned waffle fries and the best, most unique coleslaw around. Jeremy and I love the Tin Fish coleslaw. It’s a mayo-less slaw that is a crisp mix of cabbage that is both sweet and tart–a perfect side to any dish. The chicken tenders are also a favorite–although chicken tenders don’t normally excite me–these are the best! They use the same tasty breading they use on the fish on the thinly pounded out pieces of chicken and fry them up to perfection. We always order a side of their homemade chipotle sauce for dipping–spicy and delicious.You also can’t go wrong with any of the fish tacos. I always go for the mahi and its topped with some fresh slaw, shredded cheese, a pico de gallo-style salsa, and a drizzle of some kind of yummy sauce to top it off–I can’t seem to identify it but it definitely works!
If you are looking for unique places to eat in Port St Lucie that actually make their food–not defrost it–this is your place. It’s certainly made our top 10 list for local eateries.
