This is the joint we were looking for when we stumbled into Cortez Kitchen earlier in the trip. The next day, I mapped Star Fish Seafood online and we found it. And . . . we've made many visits since. We've become their best customers. Last night when we were leaving, the cook yelled through the screened kitchen windows Ya'all have a nice evening! The staff probably thinks we're living down the street instead of commuting across the bridge.
That's the fish shack in the distance, a local landmark in Cortez fishing village.
And yes, this is the place with the painted wisdom on picnic tables!
Last night I took a break from seafood and tried the burger. Yum!
The fried clams. Seriously, to die for! Are you sensing a theme here? I've got to lose that phrase considering all the fried seafood we've been consuming.
And the crabcakes melt in your mouth! These are the first fresh crabcakes I've had since living in the Northwest, and we'll be returning one more time before we leave in a few days so I can have another round!
There's also a seafood market next to the restaurant. They sell fresh seafood, artwork, t-shirts, etc....
Star Fish serves everything from smoked mullet to cabernet!
