Our History

An iconic South Florida landmark dating back to 1943, Golden Rule Seafood is a classic seafood market and full-service restaurant specializing in locally inspired comfort foods. A long-time family-owned and operated business, we offer a vast selection of items fresh-from-the-sea and the friendliest service on land.

Our mornings begin on the crystal blue waters of Biscayne Bay, where we catch the live blue crabs that you’ll find fresh in our market each and every day. Seven days a week, we offer a wide range of South Florida’s finest – including stone crabs, snapper, grouper, mackerel, mahi-mahi, and our popular Key West pink shrimp – as well as the best seafood selections from around the world: salmon, lobster, king crab, snow crab, mussels, sea bass, cod, clams, tuna, and delicious Gulf oysters, which we shuck fresh in-house for our diners.

Our casual, dress code-free restaurant comes alive beneath our Grande tiki hut. Dig into buffalo shrimp and Caribbean fried conch, a classic Maine lobster roll, blackened fish tacos, and Southern fried snapper – or order our famous blue crabs a la carte with a glass of fine wine.

Family Legacy

Benn Mullins began working at Golden Rule in 1946 as a bag boy at the age of 12. Two decades later, Benn and his wife LaVerne assumed ownership of Golden Rule, the same restaurant and market that serves South Florida more than 75 years later. In the 1990’s their daughter Pamela Mullins and her husband Walter Flores assumed ownership. Today we are proud that many of their children and grandchildren run the daily operations and are commercial fishermen providing some of the local catch. Our rich, extensive family history is part of what makes us so unique. We invite you and your extended family to join us and experience Golden Rule Seafood for yourself.
