I visited Gene's Seafood for the first time, Beach and 9A. The food was excellent but the service was horrible. From the moment we walked in until we left. Please, get friendlier servers. I do not believe I will be visiting another Gene's even though the food was great.
Gene's is an inexpensive seafood restaurant with an amazing variety of seafood to choose from.
This place is a basic, unpretentious restaurant that focuses on the food. Gene's offers everything from Shrimp and crab to alligator, Frog Legs, and about any fish you can think of.
You can get it Fried, Broiled or Blackened and it's all good. The service is quick and because of the extensive menu and low prices, it's a good place to experiment a little.
Favorite Dish: Fried Alligator and Shrimp Lunch for $6.00. There's More Alligator than Shrimp which was surprising. Served with Fries and your choice of Cole Slaw or Apple Sauce.
Although Genes in a small chain of restraunts, i belive theres about 6 in the north Florida area, the quality and veriety of seafood available is second to none. The staff are alway eager to help out and recomend any specials and the overall service is great. For seafood lovers this is one place that is a must.
Favorite Dish: Shrimp and scallops ina garlic and butter sauce, serves with linguine. Unbelivable.
