Star Fish CompanyStar Fish Company is one of the best fresh fish and seafood markets in town. Located in the quaint fishing village of Cortez, they have not only the seafood market but a dockside restaurant which we had the good fortune to visit recently.

They serve fresh Florida seafood prepared in the simplest of ways. Most items are either fried, grilled, blackened or sauteed. Sides are kept simple, too. There’s cole slaw, cheese grits and french fries. Of course, don’t forget the hush puppies! My husband and I both ordered the grouper sandwich (mine grilled, his blackened). You can tell the fish is fresh and it’s served in a paper box with their own house made tartar sauce.
