Red Fish Taco

In the heart of Blue Mountain Beach at Redfish Village is Red Fish Taco - a vibrant, family-friendly eatery and bar where Mexico meets the Gulf of Mexico and tacos & tequila are the main events.

Red Fish Taco is a casual "Mexico-meets-beach" restaurant operated by the same folks who brought us Stinky's Fish Camp. Chef Jim Richard and team have done it again, venturing forth with a fresh concept on Scenic 30A.  Red Fish Taco offers something for everyone in your party. Enjoy the festive atmosphere for lunch and dinner, listen to local live music, join friends at the bar. Try the delicious Red Fish Rita, Frozen Stinky Rita, or tequilas.

After a stint as an al fresco taqueria and bar, Red Fish Taco has expanded into a full service restaurant serving Mexican-inspired cuisine in a refreshing and flavorful way with some unexpected menu items. The menu spans from traditional to mexican-inspired dishes to southern, asian and beyond. Chefs Jim Richard and Todd Misener along with the best team in the business, deliver the same authentic quality of Stinky's Fish Camp in a refreshing and flavorful new way. Nightly creations, happy hour and special events are part of the total package.

"While staying true to our culinary roots, we wanted to offer a menu that families can enjoy while enjoying the beach, a bike ride or a casual dinner at the beach,” says Owner Chef Jim Richard. "Fast, fresh and casual al fresco style tacos and margaritas."

As always, Red Fish Taco chefs depend on fresh local sources and operate a made-from-scratch kitchen. The menu varies from Mexican-inspired dishes to Latin, Southern, Asian and local flavors. Chefs Jim Richard and Todd Misener, along with the best team in the business, deliver the same authentic quality of Stinky's Fish Camp in a refreshing and flavorful new way.

Obviously, their most popular items are tacos, but Red Fish Taco also features a grilled avocado salad with blackened shrimp that has been very popular. And it may sound kind of easy to overlook, but the corn tortilla chips are amazing. They’re fried fresh to order and tossed in a secret  spiced salt. Each chip is hot, perfectly spiced and amazing vehicles for yummy queso or salsa.

Popular menu items include fresh lemon-garlic hummus, house-made salsa, Gulf-shrimp queso, seafood tacos, crispy street tacos and a selection of surprising sides such as grilled avacado, Mexican grilled corn, and shrimp fried rice. The extensive dinner menu includes stir-fried Spanish rice bowls and chargrilled chicken, beef and seafood entrees, and nightly house specialties.  The short rib chili queso burger is on the menu along with the cuban sandwich and crispy catfish tacos - just a few examples of what's in the house.

The restaurant has a full bar for you to belly up to day or night. Sip on Tecate in the can and grab $3 Sunday Funday tequila shots. The frozen margaritas are always a favorite. Sit under a bright umbrella on the patio and enjoy a few with friends.  

“We do love Tequila at Red Fish Taco and feature several quality tequilas,” says General Manager Bob Kunkel. “We use Don Julio in our top shelf Stinky Rita. We also have Patron and Casa Noble.”

Red Fish Taco can easily feed your tribe, whether four people or forty. The kitchen prepares large to-go orders ready for pick up within short time frames. Special Events space is available in the upstairs Ballroom and Florida room.
