Good, Solid Seafood Choice!

Fish Market is just a good, solid seafood restaurant. No frills and very basic seafood but good. My wife and I dined at Fish Market recently and I had crab cakes that were quite good. Unfortunately I had crab cakes at another restaurant the night before that were excellent so I had a point of... read more

Clam chowder soup was FULL of clams. Delicious! Pasta was extremely creamy and full of seafood. What a wonderful experience and would sure to return if ever in the area.

I was so excited by the menu I wanted to order everything but instead I had the lobster bisque and salmon I wasn't sure if the chunks of meat in the lobster bisque were actually lobster or just pieces of fish it had way too much tomato in it. Next I asked the salmon to be cooked medium it came... More

Great crab cakes- get the 2 Blue Crab lump cakes dinner (market price was 34.99 for us). Service was not super but manageable. Casual atmosphere - went with my wife and 2 year old daughter.

This was our first time here and we ordered the codfish sandwich with french fries. It was delicious, and huge! The fish was NOT greasy, and it was served on ciabatta bread. The coleslaw had a nice, smoky taste to it, and the fries were steak fries (my favorite), and perfectly cooked. The service was also great. Can't wait to... More

My wife and I stayed in Old Town for two nights in early May (added a weekend to the end of a business trip). Based on recommendations of friends and the staff at the hotel where we were staying, we ate at the Fish Market on our first night. Once inside, we remembered that we had eaten there during our...

I took my G.F. out for dinner here, and enjoyed it very much.! The portion of seafood in their dishes was outstanding. The lobster bisque, had nice size chunks of lobster meat in it. Our server, ( Edgar) was very attentive and super friendly. I didn't give this restaurant five stars because, their Caesar Salad, was not that good. The... More

I went here with a friend for a weekday dinner. The food was really good and a good value. We both enjoyed it. The restaurant is cozy - subdued without being dark. The location is near the waterfront of Old Town. It is a nice walk from the King Street Metro station. I would definitely recommend here for a dinner... More
