Let’s talk about another new restaurant opening in the Market at Sawgrass Grove.  Little Fin Seafood Kitchen opened for business about two weeks ago, but yesterday was my first visit…and I’ll be back for sure.  It’s the little sister to Big Fin Seafood Kitchen in Orlando, a full-service dining establishment.

Service With A Smile

Meka’ela greeted me at the counter and helped me to decide on the Fish Tacos. YUM!  She also suggested the Alligator Bites but I’ll save that adventure for next time (I haven’t tried them…yet).  Although, I witnessed Chef Jeff go above and beyond to help an out-of-town visitor sample the gator bites and she was thrilled.  Everything was made fresh to order and Kara was at the grill with a smile putting it all together.  The service was top-notch for sure.

What To Eat

I chose to sit at the side counter, but most diners were enjoying their meals in the main dining area.  Think of the food court at your favorite mall…but WAY better.  The food at the Market is definitely not your typical mall food. My Fish Tacos were amazingly fresh and delicious, and the Fish & Chips going out looked equally amazing.  …and those Alligator Bites… Some of the other specialties that Little Fin is serving up are Jumbo Coconut Shrimp, Crispy Chili Calamari, Real Maine Lobster Roll, Grilled Catch of the Day, and Crispy Seasoned Fries.  They also offer a Caesar Salad or Chopped Salad.

If you choose to sit out in the main dining area, you can also enjoy an adult beverage from the Sawgrass Bar.  Then head over to Darlin’s Sweet Shop for dessert, their salted caramel cheesecake is to die for (trust me on this one)!  On your way out, make sure to stop in The Villages® Grown and bring home some fresh produce, kombucha, or other goodies.

By the way, did you know that there is outdoor seating at the Market?  There is a quiet little patio just outside to enjoy your meal.  I have a feeling this little secret spot won’t be so secret once business starts to pick up.
