This is a must stop for anyone who likes fresh seafood!! I visit every trip I make. Their lobster roll is outstanding! Oysters on the half shell melt in your mouth! Homemade potato chips are also great!!

We had lunch here with my three sons (9,11,15); Food was generally good with the mahi mahi being the favorite and other options being a little more breaded/fried that we had anticipated. Service was a little slow considering it wasn't that full, but eventually we got our drinks and were able to order. Bar area looked like the place to... More

Arrive early to beat the rush and enjoy great seafood. Try the Lobster Bisque and share some sampler platters. They also have a kids menu and lot of beverage options.

The fish sandwiches we had were freshly prepared and well executed although a bit under-seasoned. Not a bad stop if you're in the area.

The Lobster Bisque was excellent, we had the Mahi Tacos and the seafood combo. The seafood combo was perfectly cook seafood with a cream sauce over pasta. The sauce was delectable.

I have been coming to this place for 25 years. I love their Clam chowder and peel and eat spicy shrimp which you can order a 1/4 or 1/2 pound of shrimp. Both the fried and broiled seafood platters are good. During happy hour for a break, I will get there fried calamari.

We stopped at the Fish Market on an early Saturday evening with a local friend who hadn't been there but had heard it was good. Our first clue should have been when we were seated immediately after seeing long waiting times at several other places. When we were shown to a dark and dingy upstairs room, we should have trusted... More

Went for lunch - again. Good selection of oysters; both local and from up the coast. The fish always tastes fresh and the portions are good. The staff is attentive and very customer service oriented. Nothing to ever complain about here.
