Don't Go To Rattlefish! – Rattlefish use to be a fun place to relax with friends and enjoy a decent meal and a great view. However, the quality of the food has gone down hill and is scrapping the bottom of the trash heap and their prices continue to rise. Their wait staff is polite and friendly, but this in no way makes up for the horrible food. On a regular basis they over charge credit cards and debt cards so be sure to keep your receipt and check your statements. Very unethical business practices. I will never go back there again and would not recommend it to anyone.
Great evening Out – Great experience at Rattle Fish Raw Bar and Grill...... Manager Richard Matthew's very attentive, and out going. Made evening a delite. Waitree Ayasa (prounced ASIA) was outstanding. Fun night had by all... from appetizers- to -meals-to desserts. Richard's recommendations were outstanding......
Fresh seafood in a lively atmosphere makes this marina-side spot a hit with trendsetting types. – The Scene
Overlooking Old Tampa Bay, this hideaway at the Bayside Marina offers breathtaking views. Inside, minimalist blacks and tans blend with rattan and wicker. Outside, the upper-deck bar bustles with animated singles and a live band, while the lower deck is more relaxed.
Fist-sized raw oysters are a fresh and flavorful start, as is the seafood margarita with crab, shrimp and salsa shaken in a tin. Mix things up with skewered coconut-crusted chicken kabobs, baked with pineapple and spicy orange salsa, or the Rattled chopped salad with hearts of palm, roasted red pepper, crumbled blue cheese and bacon in mustard vinaigrette, sprinkled with sunflower seeds. The bouillabaisse raw bar and fish grill allows custom seafood creations with a choice of fish, broths and tapenades. Tomato-ginger chutney and wasabi-sour cream accompany pan-seared ahi tuna fajitas. Go ahead and sin with chocolate-stuffed Oreo beignets.
Great atmosphere but don't expect more. – I had heard alot the great vibe at this place so had to check it out with a group of friends. That way you sample many plates as opposed to just your own. I was taken back at the prices of the food and the poor quality of the food. One was more outrageous than the other. My husband and I spent less money than this 2 weeks ago at Ceviche and that was a fabulous meal in South Tampa. If you go here, come for the great (loud) waterside atmosphere and live music. Drinks are ok. You're paying for that sunset view. Interior decor is pretty nice thought. Avoid the food. Not worth the high cost. We found the service to be arrogant at worst, apathetic at best.
