There were four of us visiting and having lunch here on a busy Sunday afternoon around 1:00 pm. I ordered halibut fish & chips and it was delicious. Another person ordered the chef's salad with shrimp, it too was great. My wife ordered the fresh/frozen halibut and it was so over cooked she had a hard time cutting it with... More

This is my favorite restaurant in the area where we used to live. They have 2 kinds fo chowder, red and white. Both are excellent but I prefer the white. Apparently the same guy has been making it for years and he is the only one with the recipe. The fish here is always fresh, you can buy fish to... More

The new restsurant is beautiful and very nicely decorated but its also way too noisy. Our friends fell the same. The way they built the room allows for the peoples talking to ecco and that makes it very uncomfortable to be there. It sounds like a buzzing sound. We remember the fish company of 25 years ago and the food... More

We have eaten here many times, and what we like is the fact that they are consistantly excellent. We have tried many different dishes, but we have favorites. We usually start with the Calamari Steak with a salad with honey-mustard dressing. It was outstanding! We also shared the Fish & Chips with the halibut......again the best. For the freshest and...

The Manhattan chowder is just as excellent as the New England Chowder. Another favorite year after year. This time the Halibut was over cooked and disappointing and that is why I am giving 3 stars. I will be picking up chowder to-go so I can freeze and eat later when we get back to Sacramento.

Four of us had wonderful dinner at The Original Fish Company. I started with the clam chowder yummm. Then I had petroleum sole with bay shrimp and holland aide sauce. My husband had Idaho trout which was also good.

The Original Fish Company is one of those places that make you feel comfortable when you walk in the door. I'll get to the food soon, but let me first tell you about our experience here over the years . It is my opinion that this place is one of the most well-run restaurants at which I have eaten. The...

Started our evening with a delicious Seafood Dinner. Went early to avoid the crowds. Our server was spot on. Our meals were awesome! The New England Clam Chowder is to die for! The price was slightly more expensive but what we got was well worth the time and money! Go early and expect crowds, because it's THAT GOOD! I read... More
