Fresh fish as advertised...

While in Old Town my family dined at this restaurant. Overall, it was a very good experience. The fish entries were grilled and tasted great. My son had the filet mignon which was also quite good. We were fortunate to have a table, by the window, overlooking the famed King Street. Nothing... read more

Coming from Colorado, we search for local fare wherever we travel - in Virginia, that would be seafood. My wife is a huge salmon fan, and this salmon she says was the worst she ever had - dry and overcooked so as to be inedible. Not sure where the best seafood in Old Town is, but it's not here.

Had a great meal at this restaurant. Great location! Was lucky to get a table outside. Ordered a seafood platter and it was delicious. The waitress was very nice. Great food and great atmosphere - can't get better than that! Highly recommend.

The service and the food was very good. The atmosphere was charming. We had a seat by the window up on the second floor with a nice view of King's Street. The only downside was that the restaurant was a little overpriced.

The seafood here is AMAZING! Always fresh and seasoned to perfection. The options are endless (shrimp, fish, shell fish) and there are various nightly specials. The drinks are also great.

My wife and I enjoyed our lunch at the Old Town Fish Market restaurant. The clam chowder was full of large pieces of clams and was very flavorful. The skippers and captain’s platers were both filled with an abundant amount of seafood and were well worth the price. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for quality seafood... More

You know when a restaurant has immediate seating available on a busy night you should keep walking by. But when you're hungry sometimes you just go for it anyway. The fish tacos were covered in a sauce that made them not edible. And the burgers they claim are the best had no seasoning and were bland. Even the kids macaroni... More

We have dined at the Fish Market on several occasions when visiting Old Town. We enjoy the character and lively atmosphere. Once again, on our most recent trip, we were not disappointed. The menu offers a variety of choices from soups, salads, sandwiches, and full entrees. Our group went for lighter fare. The fish tacos were delicious as was the... More
