LBI’s Best Source for Fresh Seafood


Eat Responsibly

We are committed to make sure that every piece of seafood that comes through or restaurant is sustainably caught, preserved at sea correctly, and complies with our high standard of quality.



Viking Fresh Off The Hook is a Larson/Panacek family-owned business that opened in the spring of 2003. Since we are affiliated with Viking Village, a neighboring commercial fishing dock, our seafood is always fresh. All of our food is prepared on premises using only the freshest, high quality ingredients. We pride ourselves on serving responsibly caught, fresh seafood prepared in a healthy way, all in a clean, friendly environment.
