Great chowder

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

Took my family there for a meal. Restaurant has completed their remodeling and it looks great. Had a chance to look at their fresh seafood counter while waiting to be seated. Food was great and we had a wonderful waiter. Jason was friendly and helpful. We were there at 5:30 pm and didn't have to wait long to get seated.... More

Great place for dining. The fish is always wonderfully tasty. The service is excellent. And the Mousse for dessert is light and heavenly.

Visited Original Fish Co for a Sunday glass of wine. The atmosphere is very nice and the staff is attentive. It was busy but we still found a seat at the bar. We plan to visit again and eat and possibly stop by their fish market an pick up dinner. The selection / quality of fresh fish looked great.

Nothing too fancy, but very good quality fish expertly prepared in comfortable digs with good service. Nowadays you pay dearly for quality, selection, availability and consistency in sit-down seafood establishments, and that's certainly the case with Original Fish. Most of our friends agree this is the cream of the crop of seafood establishments in the area.

The Original Fish Company is consistently perfect! The menu is quite vast, from the obvious seafood choices to some delicious salads and steaks. They have the best Clam Chowder around! Service is always very friendly. The recent expansion makes for a shorter wait time.

Had a good meal at lunchtime. I had to meet some people for a business discussion, so it was hard to enjoy the meal. But the food was great inspite of the company! They also had a bar menu in the new bar area that looked good. The fresh fish being sold in front at the counter looked very good.
