A perennial favorite!

I've been coming to the Fish Market for a couple of decades. It's always a favorite and NEVER been disappointed. The fried oysters are the best (though the number of oysters seems to have gone down as the years go by and prices go up)!

We have been coming to the Fish Market for many years. It has changed ownership but still has the best oysters in town, as well as excellent bisques and other soups/stews, and for their entrees they serve fresh vegs., seafood (including lobster) and meats. Family friendly. We only wish the music were less catered to "under forties", especially as it... More

My wife and I love coming here. Each and every time. We go straight into the bar area, order a couple schooners, and some local ray oysters. You really can't beat the atmosphere, staff, and food.

After an afternoon of house hunting we decided to take a stroll down King Street and find some great seafood. The Fish Market did not disappoint. We both started with a bowl of soup; I went for Lobster Bisque and he went with Clam Chowder. The Lobster Bisque was delish; full body flavor and large chunks of crab, perfectly seasoned.... More

Went with a group of seven in town for a conference. The place looks a little dicey but it's clean and everything we have was fresh. We were seated upstairs next to a party of eight and while both parties could be heard the noise level was very good. Our servers were on the spot all night. We started with... More

You come here for seafood. As in I sea food, I eat it! Great location by downtown Old Town. Friendly service from the staff and the owner. Can get crowded at times. Great for business or family. I came here for lunch with a colleague and would definitely come back here again!

We were looking for some good seafood on king street down by the water. The Fish Market had just what we were looking for. The food was fresh and tasty and the atmosphere was lively and fun. There were other seafood restaurants in the area but they seemed to be a little more formal. We sat on the "bar side".... More
