Fried Seafood suggestions FLL area

OK, I've done the search thing, and can't seem to find exactly what I am looking for. Maybe because it's kind of "off the wall" for this area. Coming to Fort Lauderdale in a few weeks with my inlaws. They think they love fresh seafood. However their perspective is from a lifelong NC native, who mainly gets "calabash style" fried flounder at home. We've brought them down before, and they always say, let's get some fresh fish, but when we take them to a good seafood restaurant, flounder is not on the menu or any other kind that they recognize, and neither is deep fried anything very often. Did get them to try some orange roughy one time, and they liked it. Snapper is just too strange for them (and probably too strong tasting as well). My MIL does like devilled crab and good crab cakes as well, and they occassionally eat some salt and pepper catfish. So, should I just stick to places that have a good grouper sandwich? Or is there some place that serves fried fish, mild flavored? Willing to drive up to an hour in any direction from Fort Lauderdale. I know what I am asking doesn't qualify as "good seafood" in most people's mind.

TIA
