Star Fish Company was started in the early 20's by Judge Millis. Gaylord Garner purchased the business in the 1950's and his son Allen took it over when his father died in the late 80's.
Star Fish Company had primarily been a wholesale company prior to the addition of the retail market in the 60's. Mr. Garner had thought that many people wanted a place where they could purchase locally caught seafood. He was right! The retail market built up a solid clientele of both locals and visitors.
In 1996 Allen Garner sold the company to its current owner, Karen Bell. Karen felt that in addition to offering the public fresh seafood in the retail market, it made sense to start offering cooked seafood also. A small kitchen was upgraded and eight picnic tables were placed on the back dock. A restaurant was born!
