Freshen Up on Fish Tacos

The flavor of the Bradenton Area might be worth the trip all on its own, especially when your trip’s meals consist of the freshest and most flavorful fish tacos around town. Whether you’re sitting on a table right on the beach or at a restaurant in downtown Bradenton, you’re in for a treat. Here are some places to find the best fish tacos on your next vacation to the Bradenton Area.

Wicked Cantina

Wicked Cantina’s name is no coincidence. It’s because their burgers, seafood and fish tacos are wicked good. Located on Bradenton Beach, it’s your one-stop beachside taco shop. Enjoy everything from fried shrimp tacos to classic carnitas street tacos drizzled with their famous super spicy Wicked Sauce.


Birdrock Taco Shack

The Village of the Arts is where you find the most artistic creations in Bradenton. It’s also home of Birdrock Taco Shack, one of the most creative taco shops around. Tuna, lobster, blue crab and more are all on the menu. Order up and enjoy an art walk through the boutiques, galleries and shops.


The Waterfront Restaurant

Looking for some fish tacos that are a little more refined? Look no further than The Waterfront Restaurant. Their premium black grouper tacos are topped with jicama slaw and packed with flavor. One bite and you’ll see why they’re such a local favorite.


Star Fish Company

Seafood doesn’t come any more authentic than at Star Fish Company in Cortez Fishing Village. Residing in one of the oldest working fishing villages in the country, their fish is fresh caught from the sea and tastes so good that it needs no special ingredients or fancy plating – it’s just great, fresh seafood that’s sure to make your mouth water.

Tide Tables

Another option in Cortez is Tide Tables. Their fresh grouper tacos are big on flavor and, well, big in size. They come with a side of some of the best sauce in the Bradenton Area and a heaping order of fries. And its location right on the water makes it all the better.



Tempura fried, blackened or grilled – there’s a fish taco for every taste bud at O’Bricks. Located in downtown Bradenton, it’s known for its laid-back atmosphere and great variety of food and drinks. But the fish tacos are a must-try for first time visitors.

Some delicious fish – and shrimp! –  taco options await you at Central Cafe in east downtown Bradenton! Feast on grilled, rare ahi tuna tacos or lightly breaded rock shrimp tacos, complete with sweet and spicy chili sauce.
