Placida is a small very special place, reflecting a calmer and slower pace, a bit of old Florida and the way things use to be.
Here the fishing industry once thrived....many days the fishing boats laden with fish were only outnumbered by the circling birds above and those flocking around them. Today from our windows we see an everchanging panorama of pelicans, herons, egrets, segulls, ibis, and osprey soaring above and wading in the waters of historic Gasparilla Sound. The Sound teems with fish, crabs, and the occasional manatee and dolphins. The heritage of this small place is entwined with the rich history of this state and our family. Placida has been our home for decades and the beautiful scene outside our windows has
been the backdrop for our lives for four generations. We are pleased to be able to share with you the casual dining experience at the Fishery reflecting an old Florida lifestyle... where life moves a bit slower and it is so easy to smile.
