Overlooking the Miami River, this indoor/outdoor restaurant serves fresh fish dishes and family hospitality courtesy of father-son team Esteban Jr. and Luis Garcia. Choose blackboard specials or house favorites such as fried grouper fingers or blackened or breaded preparations of your favorite fish. The famous fish dip or a fried shrimp sandwich make tasty starters. You can also order your meal with a side of fries, coleslaw, grilled veggies, mashed potatoes, yellow rice, white rice, or salad. Insider tip: Garcia's has been a Miami institution for more than 50 years. Those in-the-know flock here for the freshest catches reeled in daily and available for purchase on the menu or by the pound at the fish market next door. Stay and enjoy the laid-back views of the Miami River; Garcia's was featured on an episode of The Layover, where Anthony Bourdain gave his stamp of approval.
