Located on the corner of Washington Avenue and Fifth Street, Izzy's is a casual, laid-back seafood-centric eatery offering a much-needed breath of fresh air compared to many Miami Beach restaurants. The 40-seat locale, with almost 20 outdoors, is cozy inside and outside. Tables are situated close together, resembling a small, hole-in-the-wall restaurant you'd find up north.
