Island Pig and Fish Restaurant Review – Fort Pierce, FL

Tucked away in our island paradise, Island Pig & Fish is a culinary treasure that effortlessly fuses the rustic charm of a backwoods BBQ with the seaside allure of a coastal fish shack. This dining establishment, brought to life by the visionary Taylor Shull, represents a captivating culinary journey that has its roots in a remarkable backstory. Taylor, a seasoned restaurateur who made his mark as the Chief Operating Officer of the prestigious RW Restaurant Group in Washington, DC, alongside Michelin-starred chef Robert Wiedmaier, wasn’t initially planning to dive back into the restaurant business upon relocating to our island four years ago. However, as he settled into the local scene, he couldn’t help but notice a distinct need for something extraordinary – fresh, from scratch food prepared with passion and precision.

But what truly sets Island Pig & Fish apart is its unwavering dedication to crafting dishes from scratch.
