In 1937 The Dixie Fish Co. was built and became one of the best places around to both buy and sell that days catch. By the 1950's, the fishing industry was hit with what we call today, "Pink Gold". Pink gold was a nickname given to shrimp. Their abundance right off the South West Florida coast made it a gamechanger in the fishing industry. Shrimp boats would tie up all along Matanza's Pass, where you can still spot many of them today.
Today we're an award winning waterfront restaurant. With a smaller menu than our sister restaurant Doc Ford's, which is located right next door, we provide the same quality service along with an unforgettable atmosphere. Open 7 days a week for lunch & dinner.
