Store and Restaurant ... all in one!

If you are looking for a seafood restaurant that doesn't disappoint, look no further. The seafood is always fresh, and the service is awesome. Then, when dinner is over, and you were wishing you had saved a little piece to take home for later, NO WORRIES! Just step over in to their fish market... read more

We have been to this restaurant several times and it is always good. It is very popular for lunch but it seems like there is always a place at the bar. My wife always orders the clam chowder and I have fish, usually blackened. I have loved the trout, the monkfish and the salmon. All good.

Trout is the best found around. Their clam chowder is delicious. Others at the table ordered the salmon and shrimp cocktail and were extremely happy. They serve sourdough loaves warm with butter that are impossible to say no too. Service is great.

Fish Company has always been consistently great. My spouse and I stopped by for a late lunch recently. We had steamers as an appetizer and they were delicious. Huge potion and loads of great broth to soak up with bread at the bottom of the pot. The mahi mani was perfect. An unbelieveble tasty flavor emanating from the mesquite wood... More

This restaurant has really good food and they know it. The wait can be really long. We were a group of 5 last time and it took over an hour to get a table. The portions are a little skimpy, as happens with high quality ingredients. My parents love the mixed Louie (crab and shrimp). Crab legs are excellent as... More

Good food, reasonable prices (except the lobster), and really good service. Their chowder is absolutely the best, as is the bread. We prefer the patio area, even in the winter (they have big heaters).

First time I have been to this restaurant and I can assure you it will not be the last. The wait staff are amazing and super friendly and helpful. As other reviewers have said, the New England Clam Chowder is amazing. Best I have tasted in many years and it was full of clams -- not just a smidgen here... More

Amazing food . It has so much seating in a elegant remodeled dining area. The food was great i had the Salmon and finished it off with a ice-cream layered chocolate cake. Our server was great and always attentive. My only negative thought is the noise level was to loud. I was on a date and was hard to hear... More

Fish Co has always had the most amazing chowder and with the new remodel we love the bar. You can sit and order limited menu on weekends and watch a game on widescreens. Not a huge fan of table service as they wont seat you until your whole party is there and sometimes it would be nice to sit and... More
