Where's the Deal
About the Company
The ocean has always been very important to me. In my younger years, fishing took up most of my free time. So much so that becoming a fishing guide seemed like a logical career choice. After completing school (Go Noles!!) and having to make a career choice, I decided to help my dad out in sourcing seafood for his restaurants. At the time, stone crabs were in short supply and he needed some more sources. After a few weeks of driving down to the Florida Keys, I found some fisherman and fish houses to source my dad's restaurants with stone crab but found out I could source him with high quality seafood of all kinds, as well. I continued driving to south Florida and back, daily, until Hurricane Wilma came through and put most of my larger suppliers out of business. The choice was then to either give up on the seafood industry or become my own supplier. Soon I started construction on a full line wholesale fish market located near the airport in Orlando. Whole fish and other seafood products are flown or driven in directly to my facility and processed and delivered only after a critical quality inspection. It's been in operation for 7 years now and has more than 50 customers.
Being a 5th generation and lifelong Lakelander, when the thought of starting a seafood retail market came along, Lakeland was the logical choice. Also, being raised in a restaurant family created aspirations of adding a culinary side to the typical seafood market model. So, Jimmy Belle's Seafood Market & Grill (named after my two children) was born. A full line, high quality, seafood market that also offers chef inspired cuisine as well as southern seafood fare that's anything but average. Thank you very much for joining us in this new adventure. We hope to see you soon!

Review by Ashley Moats - 5 Out of 5 Stars Freshest seafood and an amazing atmosphere. We have found our new weekly hangout!!
Review by Steve Shelnut - 5 Out of 5 Stars This place is extraordinary!!! The charbroiled oysters are divine, and so is everything else. We just had the blue crab tostadas, and they were fab. Compliments to the entire friendly staff, too. They treat us so well!
Review by Jack G. - 4 Out of 5 Stars Tonight was our 1st time trying this restaurant. The staff was very friendly and interactive with our kids. The kids meals are a great deal and give them plenty of food for the money. I tried the drunkin jimmy grouper sandwich and it was phenomenal. The fries are seasoned and Cole slaw was great. The kids loved seeing the live lobsters and the server in the birthday lobster suit made fora great laugh. Our family will certianly return. As a bonus we happened to go on a night that had live music.

I had the oyster po'boy and it was very good the bread was perfect not too thick. Also tried the charbroiled oysters. So glad we have a place like this in Lakeland. We will be back soon, we have a new restaurant in our top five.
