    Restaurants cooking fish you catch

    I'm curious what the charge is if a restaurant cooks fish that you've caught on a fishing trip? I know Driftwood will often cook fish you catch on their charters, but what other restaurants will cook fish from other charter excursions? Usually my family just gives the fish to the crew, but seeing that West Deck will cook your fish and we stay at the Renaissance it piqued my interest.

    good question
    you may want to ask West Deck by email or Facebook, what the cost would be.

    Our Captain recommended Hopi Bon right there next to the marina in the Renaissance area. We paid $11 per person and they cooked our fish 2 different ways and gave us rice and vegetables to complete the meal. We enjoyed it and I would recommend it.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    I'm not so familiar with the area, but we fished with Hatts Off Charter. His boat slip is on the last row closest to the restaurants and near the entrance to the Seaport Casino. We walked over and Hopi Bon was a small place on the outside row, we could see the entrance to the Casino. We dined outside. under ceiling fans. I wish I could remember more about what was next to it.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Hopi Bon is across from Seaport Casino by Hung Paradjis right before you get to The Dutch Pancake House.

    in between pancake place and hung paradise. you have probably walked by it a gazillion times and not noticed.
    "hopi bon" has excellent food and that is great tracey that they cooked the catch and only charged you $11.
    i have heard some places charge much more.

    what does "driftwood" charge?
