The next cook your catch restaurant in Naples I want to recommend is The Bay House. This place is stunning from the indoor decor to the picturesque view of the water right from your table.
The Bay House is located off of Walkerbilt Road, tucked away into the mangrove forests, overlooking the back bays of Naples. This place is perfect for an unforgettable dining experience made even better when you bring your own fresh-caught fish.
Be sure to stop by The Bay House when you’re in the area, especially after a long day on the water of filling up the cooler with fish.
Riverwalk at Tin City

Phone: (239) 263-2734
As if you needed any more reasons to visit the fantastic Tin City shopping mall in Naples, here’s another one. Riverwalk is a phenomenal place to eat, especially if you’re looking for someone to cook your catch.
Your hard-earned fish will be in good hands when you bring it to Riverwalk. The chefs know exactly what to do to make it taste amazing, exactly the way you want it.
I highly recommend timing your visit to Riverwalk to coincide with snook season down here in Florida. Snook are prized saltwater game fish and absolutely delightful to eat if you get the chance.
Capri Fish House

Phone: (239) 389-5555
Capri Fish House is another place I want to mention because they never disappoint when I bring them my fish. I’ve presented them with snapper, grouper, even flounder, and they always prepare it perfectly.
This lovely restaurant is located right on the water off of Capri Boulevard, not far from Marco Island. It’s tucked away among all of the local charters and fishing guides, so there’s no shortage of people willing to help you in your search for big fish.
