Stopped in by chance on a Monday afternoon. Was great timing because a table was immediately available. Our server was friendly and really knew his stuff. I asked for his recommendation for raw oysters and he didn't hesitate in a choice. They were some of the best I have ever had. Very refreshing. Swordfish with a beurre blanc sauce was... More

If you like seafood you have to go here. I had the lobster roll and it was fantastic. My boyfriend had the fried oyster poboy and couldn't stop talking about it. We really wanted to go back to eat but made ourselves try somewhere else since we are only there one day. Very casual, friendly staff. It's in a market... More

Great seafood, casual atmosphere, awesome service. The whole market is a nice place to visit--sushi bar, candy shop, pastries, cheese. Etc etc. The St. Paul seafood company is a perfect spot they only have a few tables (9, 11?) So you may have to wait but it's worth it. Employees were friendly and welcoming, service was swift and professional and... More

This place continues to impress. Excellent service. Better seafood than the east coast and kid friendly for sure.

Nicely pan-fried walleye fish came with veggies and white rice. Very enjoyable. Veggies were swimming in butter so next time I'd ask for them to go easy on that. Get there early, enjoy the scene and your neighbors at the long bar area. Seafood is also for sale. Some of it frozen (crab legs and lobster tails). Fast and friendly... More

Cmon, a lobster claw, shrimp, and smoked fish as garnishes......You cant beat it. Food never a disappointment, we had the whole lobster dinner, shrimp tacos, and the lobster bisque. The lobster bisque was a little distasteful but rest was delicious. I also tried the smoked salmon on a stick. It was very good. Very reasonably priced as well. Two adults,... More

The lobster roll is excellent, fresh lobster in a nicely grilled roll. Ask for grilled vegetables if you prefer instead of fries. I would also recommend any of their grilled fish. We go to St Paul's Fish Market over other seafood restaurants because the seafood is flown in fresh everyday. You can also buy seafood at their market to prepare... More

Casual with excellent food. Can get loud on the weekends. While you are there, you can also enjoy the setting - in a public market.

I come to the fish market as often as I can. It's tucked at the end of the Milwaukee Public Market, which is always bustling and has lots of options for a bite to eat. My favorite is St Paul's though. The lobster, po boys, and fresh oysters are always perfect and delicious. Although it can be crowded, the service... More
