Small restaurant so reservations are a must. If you want fresh seafood this is the place. Owner/chef goes to O'hare to pick up fresh seafood every morning. It's also a BYOB restaurant. Can't wait to go back.

Reservation only on Friday and Saturday, with only a few preparations of fish available each night. Fresh and delicious fish. Amazed by what they are able to do there. Great spot to buy fresh fish to take home, as well. Friendly and family run.

We have been going to Ernesto's since he started serving dinners. His creativity is surprising and the fish is always delicious. While the menu entrees are excellent you may also order a fish of your choice from the display. When you do, Ernesto will cook it however you wish. For a small BYOB place the service is always prompt and... More

We had a special dinner here for our wedding anniversary. The snow was falling and the lighting was inviting. White tablecloths. Ernesto and his Crew are wonderfuil. They take pride in their "seafood shop by day and restaurant by night." They serve dinner Friday and Saturday night and lunch most days. The menu is small--but fresh fresh fresh. We had... More

I try to frequent E&S for lunch - unfortunately I always have the same sandwich! Grilled Halibut/Grouper or whatever is in season, spicy mayo, grilled jalapeno, lettuce, tomato on grilled Sourdough with a side of potato salad......absolutely divine. Ernesto and Co are always friendly, service is prompt, food is served piping hot. And when you finish with lunch, you can... More

This place is a nice find in a strip mall. I've passed by too many times to count before actually getting some friends together to eat there. I won't make this long, so in my opinion: It's a great spot to have some fresh, good, seafood appetizers and dinner. It's small and the bathrooms need some updating. The menu is... More

A hidden GEM hated to post about them since they only have a few tables and serve a couple days a week but I have eaten there 3 times and the meals have never disappointed

The whole concept of E&S Fish Market is great. A fish market by day, seafood restaurant by night. We had two delicious meals in a setting that was unusual but very pleasant. They transform the location with tables with good linens and tableware. The food was fresh and the dinners come with soup or salad. My husband had a red... More

Fishmarket by day, fantastic restaurant by night. I've stopped at this place off and on for various fish/seafood and then one day our friends invited us for dinner there - small and intimate and a pure delight. The options are not many but who cares - there's nothing not worth a try! Reservations are highly recommended - there are not... More

Always a great meal at E& S. Had dinner there on 2/26. Blackened grouper was delicious and the Chilean sea bass was to die for. Outstanding appetizers as well. BYOB makes the meal a bargain. Look forward to many more visits.
